Washington Wizards point guard John Wall will undergo a procedure on his left knee, and the four-time All-Star is expected to miss at least the next two weeks, the team announced on Saturday. Wall is scheduled to receive platelet-rich plasma and viscosupplementation injections to reduce the inflammation. They enter this weekend with a pedestrian 10-8 record. The star point guard was experiencing soreness in his left knee over the last few weeks and even had it drained at one point by the Wizards' training staff. A prolonged absence from Wall could be trouble for Washington, but it's best to keep your best players healthy. The team's only hope back east includes Wall playing at an MVP level. Obviously, the knee injury has impacted his performance. Wall, who averages 20.3 points and 9.2 assists, previously said fluid on his knee built up after he received IV fluids to deal with illness and migraines before the Wizards hosted Atlanta on November 11.
