John Wall to Undergo Knee Surgery, Could Miss 6-8 Weeks

John Wall #2 of the Washington Wizards drives past Kyrie Irving #2 of the Cleveland Cavaliers during the first half at Quicken Loans Arena on March 25, 2017 in Cleveland, Ohio.

Wall will attend the All-Star Weekend festivities in Los Angeles but not compete in the game. Wall did not play Sunday after it was revealed that he was dealing with a recurrence of soreness and swelling in his left knee. The Washington Post reported that Wall underwent an MRI on Monday and will be visit the Cleveland Clinic to meet with orthopedic surgeon Richard D. Parker. For people who are hoping Bradley Beal can take a step up and lead this team with Wall out, think again. He will reportedly miss significant time. They went 4-5 during his nine-game absence earlier in the season.

To say this is a huge loss for the Wizards would be an understatement, since he's averaging 19.4 points and 9.3 assists per game. "He was named a reserve, along with teammate Bradley Beal, last week".

Paul George had 28 points for Oklahoma City, but zero in the fourth quarter. Also, the injury sustained by John Wall this season has given Beal a greater opportunity to play his game.

It was a tight affair throughout, with OKC taking a one point lead into the halftime break.

Then, with 39.4 seconds remaining, Satoransky broke a 96-all tie with a pair of free throws after he was fouled by Josh Huestis, who had turned the ball over.

It wasn't until the final 40 seconds that the match was won.

Neither team shot particularly well: The Wizards wound up making 38.2 percent of their field-goal attempts - they missed 13 consecutive 3-point tries in one stretch - and the Thunder were at 37.5 percent.

As a team, the Wizards recorded a season-high 40 assists without their leading assist player, Wall. At the remarkably young age of 24, Beal is beginning to command the respect of a number one option in the National Basketball Association.
