The Wizards swingman is likely out for the season and the Wizards will get some cap relief for it.

Earlier this month, the Washington Wizards announced that CJ Miles would be out indefinitely due to a wrist injury. They also applied for an exception soon after, according to Fred Katz of The Athletic DC.

Earlier Tuesday, the Wizards were granted a $4.37 million trade exception according to Katz.

The Wizards can use this exception to sign a player or trade for a player who makes up to this amount. However, exceptions cannot be combined to sign a player who makes a higher salary.

Miles was averaging 6.4 points and 1.2 rebounds per game for the Wizards in the 2019-20 NBA season.
