Rob Carr/Getty Images/AFPWASHINGTON — Washington Wizards guard John Wall is expected to miss about two weeks with inflammation in his left knee, the team announced Saturday.Wall, 27, underwent an MRI, coach Scott Brooks revealed Friday following the day’s practice session, which the point guard missed. The four-time All-Star received platelet-rich plasma and viscosupplementation injections Saturday in Washington in the hope of reducing the inflammation that has caused discomfort for the past two weeks.ADVERTISEMENT Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa Japan ex-PM Nakasone who boosted ties with US dies at 101 Kris Aquino ‘pretty chill about becoming irrelevant’ QC cops nab robbery gang leader, cohortcenter_img Dr. Richard D. Parker with the Cleveland Clinic Marymount was consulted about the injury. Parker performed a procedure in May 2016 to remove calcific deposits in Wall’s left patella tendon. Brooks said Wall’s current injury did not appear related to that procedure.Washington is 1-1 this season without Wall, who also missed a game because of a shoulder injury.“I’m fine with John missing two weeks if this is going to make him better,” center Marcin Gortat said Saturday. “Two weeks are not two months. We can cover for him for two weeks and then he’s going to come back stronger, better, healthy and then hopefully we can go from there. That said, he’s our leader.”Backup Tim Frazier replaces Wall in the starting lineup with Tomas Satoransky moving into the rotation. Acquired by Washington from New Orleans during the offseason, Frazier is averaging 3.2 points and 3.9 assists in 16.6 minutes. He has 42 career starts including two this season and 35 with the Pelicans during the 2016-17 campaign.“Next guy has to step up. That’s it,” said Frazier, who had eight assists in each of his two starts this season. “Obviously we can’t be John, an All-Star, our leader, our best player, but we just got to step up and be the best we can and get as many wins as possible.”ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC “We felt like this was the best thing,” Brooks said before the Wizards hosted the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday. “We figure this is the early part of the season, and we’re in no rush. Give him the best chance to come back.”The injury occurred when Wall made knee-to-knee contact with another player during Washington’s Nov. 7 loss to Dallas, according to the team statement. 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 Nov. 11.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutWall sat out Sunday’s 100-91 loss at Toronto, but returned to play his usual starting role in matchups against Milwaukee and Charlotte. He had 31 points and 11 assists over 41 minutes in Washington’s 129-124 overtime loss to the Hornets on Wednesday, but then didn’t participate in Friday’s practice.“We had it drained and it actually felt pretty good,” Brooks said. “He played terrific in Milwaukee and then last game he had one of his best games of the season. .

He really rewarded the team by making the most out of the chance given to him,” Guiao said. “It’s the story of a lot of players. A lot of players languishing on the bench. But when you give them a break, they will step up and prove themselves. That’s just an example of Mike Miranda.”“That’s two straight games he played well against us. He should be an encouragement to all young players that don’t get a big break right away,” said Compton. But the Road Warriors didn’t miss the absence of Quiñahan, whose early exit paved way to Michael Miranda’s late-game heroics.After the Aces took an 83-80 edge with 3:01 remaining, Miranda scored five unanswered points that put the Road Warriors in the driver’s seat for good.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“Of course there was pressure.

Coach Yeng told me that he’ll give me a break so obviously, I need to reward his faith in me by helping the team win,” said Miranda, who had 10 points on 5-of-5 shooting from the field with three rebounds and a block in NLEX’s 105-99 win in Game 1 on Monday. “We all know coach Yeng.

No athlete is bigger than the Games, not even Bolt: Mark

first_imgAbsence of star athletes like Usain Bolt and Stephani Rice would not take the sheen away from the Delhi Commonwealth Games, feels Australia’s champion shooter and Olympic medallist Russell Mark.”No athlete is bigger than the Games, not even Bolt,” Mark said.The Australian is all praise for India’s Ronjon Singh Sodhi, who has been training under him for a while now. Mark had earlier trained Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore before the Athens Olympics in which the Indian won a silver.”He (Sodhi) is one of the most improved shooters if you look at the last four years. He still has his best years ahead of him and will be a tough person to beat in this year’s Commonwealth Games and the London Olympics (2012),” Mark told PTI Bhasha from Australia.Mark won gold in double trap at the Atlanta Olympics in 1996 and managed a silver medal in the Sydney Olympics four years later. He also won a gold medal at the Melbourne Commonwealth Games in 2006.The Australian, who last visited the country during the Commonwealth Shooting Championship at the Karni Singh Shooting Range here in March, said he does not mind coming to India for the Games and has also rubbished concerns about security measures during the extravaganza.”The security for the Commonwealth Games test event in March was very strict and that did cause us some concern. We have not been told officially of any security problems from our team management, so I’m assuming the Indian authorities have taken care of things,” he said.advertisementProvided he gets an offer in future, would he like to become the national coach of the Indian shooting team, “Yes, I would take the job on a part-time basis.I know I will be able to help them and, with the amount of talent the team has, I believe they should dominate the double trap events for the next five to eight years.”last_img read more
