Wall injury: What's next for the Wizards?

Following Friday's news that John Wall will miss significant time due to a knee injury, Jake Whitacre of Bullets Forever explored what's next for the Washington Wizards.

Whitacre expects Jordan Crawford to take over Wall's duties at point guard, with support coming from A.J. Price and Shelvin Mack. It is also possible the Wizards sign a point guard and then release him when Wall returns. Steven Gray is the most likely candidate. Trading for a point guard seems unlikely, since Wall could end up only missing ten games.

With Crawford moving into the starting point guard role, Bradley Beal could start at shooting guard. Whitacre seems a bit reluctant to say that this is good news, since the move could affect Beal's development. Don't forget about Nene, who is also not 100 percent healthy.

Many Wizards fans think that this team has a chance of making it to the poststeason. How will this injury affect playoff expectations?


Of course John Wall got hurt

The Wizards announced John Wall will miss the first eight weeks of the 2012 season with a "stress injury," and if you don't understand why that's depressing, you must not be familiar with the Wizards.


John Wall has been in pain for a month

Washington Wizards point guard John Wall is expected to miss significant time with a knee injury, and it turns out he had been feeling pain for a month, but an MRI three weeks ago originally revealed no damage. Wall went for a second opinion on Thursday, where doctors in New York discovered the early stages of a non-traumatic stress injury, according to Mike Prada of Bullets Forever.

Wall will not undergo any surgery for the issue, but rather a schedule of non-contact physical therapy. The injury is expected to keep Wall out of action for eight weeks, and the third-year star out of Kentucky could miss the first ten games of the Wizards' regular-season schedule.

The presence of Wall is vitally important to Washington's offense. He has averaged 16.3 points and 8.2 assists per game in his first two seasons as a professional. With Wall healthy, the Wizards have a good shot of making the playoffs in 2012-13, so the team will be hoping for a speedy recovery.


Loss of John Wall could be backbreaker for Wizards

With the announcement on Friday that Washington Wizards point guard John Wall has developed the early stages of a non-traumatic stress fracture in his left patella comes the reality that the team's season may be in jeopardy before it ever begins.

Projected to miss approximately eight weeks, Wall's return would come some time in November and potentially see him miss at least 10 games, which for a borderline playoff team could be a backbreaker. This is especially true considering Wizards head coach Randy Wittmann's comments on Wednesday where he explained that Wall was the pivotal piece in the fast break offense the team hoped to run this season.

His final sentiment was that as long as Wall was in the lineup, the team was going to have an advantage. Well, now they won't have Wall in the lineup and will certainly be at a disadvantage.

This leaves A.J. Price, Jordan Crawford or Shelvin Mack to attempt to fill the void while Wall is out.
