The Washington Wizards announced that guard/forward Jordan McRae suffered a mallet fracture (fingertip) on his right ring finger during their 108-100 loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night. According to a press release, McRae will have surgery on Friday and a timetable for his return will be released next week.
This sets the Wizards’ already thin shooting guard and small forward rotation back. Troy Brown Jr. is still out due to a left calf strain from late September. Furthermore, McRae had a strong start to his 2019-20 season, where he scored 11 points, grabbed 5 rebounds and dished 3 assists in Wednesday’s game.
Expect to see Issac Bonga spend more time there and Davis Bertans to get more time in light of the short term. Hopefully, McRae won’t be out for too long.
