UPDATE: Mathew’s X-Rays came up negative. However, it’s likely that he’ll miss a few games.
X-rays negative on Garrison Mathews’ ankle, but Scott Brooks spoke as if he would miss some time.— Chase Hughes (@ChaseHughesNBCS) January 7, 2020
The original post is below.
The injury happened when he was moving around Celtics guard Jayson Tatum. Mathews was helped by team staff and did not return.
The Wizards are already thin depth-wise and losing Mathews would hurt considering how well he was playing off the bench recently. We will see how serious the injury is in the coming days.
