According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Washington Wizards forward Davis Bertans suffered a Grade 2 calf strain. He will miss the next four to six weeks. The Wizards are 1-3 in their first round NBA Playoff series against the Philadelphia 76ers so it is likely that he is out for the season.

Bertans has had a rough 2020-21 season, averaging just 11.5 points per game this season. He started the regular season out of shape partly because he was unable to train in his native Latvia during the offseason. Bertans was also one of the Wizards players affected by the coronavirus when an outbreak hit the team in January.

Losing Bertans hurts more because he was getting into a rhythm in Game 4 yesterday. He scored 15 points and was a starter as opposed to a sixth man type of role. He suffered the injury during the game and left early, though Washington won. Without his three point shooting threat, it will be on other players like Rui Hachimura and Raul Neto to help fill the void.

Get well soon Davis.
