Cavs Kevin Love breaks hand, Wizards' John Wall could miss 2 months

The Wizards now are seeded sixth, but each of the Bucks, Wizards and Pacers trail the Celtics by eight games with the Sixers just two games back in eighth. The team has lost six of its last nine games, amid charges of locker-room dysfunction and the appearance of lackluster effort.

Though Wall is not having his best season, he remains the Wizards' most important player, initiating their offense and creating open looks for Bradley Beal and the rest of his teammates. Despite ongoing knee pain and swelling, Wall still managed to average 19.4 points and 9.3 assists for his fifth All-Star selection.

The Thunder had a chance to knot the score on the ensuing the possession, but Carmelo Anthony's mid-range pull-up jumper fell woefully short and allowed the Wizards to exact revenge for last Thursday's loss at Chesapeake Energy Arena. The Wizards would have to go 5-15 in their next 20 games to really start sweating the John Wall injury. 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.

Wall, 27, underwent another MRI on Monday and later visited orthopedic surgeon Richard D. Parker, who will perform the "clean up" procedure today. But given the Wizards' current place, they can't much afford to slip up.

The three-year, $170 million contract extension Wall signed in July is on the Wizards' books until 2023. Wall's injury could very well be the difference between meeting a team led by LeBron James in the first round or a team led by Goran Gragic. At $125,229,329 the Wizard's have the fifth highest salary in the National Basketball Association. However, Woj tweeted out that Wall could be sidelined for two months.
