John Wall facing knee surgery, could miss 2 months

Washington Wizards point guard John Wall is slated to undergo a "clean-up" knee procedure, which will sideline him for the next six-to-eight weeks, according to Candace Buckner of The Washington Post. Wall also missed the first 33 games of the 2012-13 season due to his left knee, although he did not have surgery. The Post report described the operation as a clean up and noted that the 27-year-old will not play in next month's All-Star Game.

Wall underwent an MRI on his left knee Monday, and then met with Parker, who consulted with Wall when he started experiencing inflammation and soreness in November.?

The dime maestro traveled to Cleveland yesterday for a second opinion on his bothersome knee, missing his second game in a row, and possibly many more as he goes under the knife once again.

The Washington Wizards will be without the services of John Wall for up to two months, reports ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

"We've done it before, so I know what it looks like", the coach said. While he is out of action, Bradley Beal will get a big boost in usage, while Tomas Satoransky and Tim Frazier will both get more playing time too. He is averaging 19.4 points and an Eastern Conference-best 9.3 assists per game.
