The Washington Wizards will be without star point guard John Wall for about two weeks after he experienced knee inflammation because of contact during a game against the Dallas Mavericks.

The team made the announcement Saturday after Wall got an MRI on the knee the day before.

The injury comes from knee-to-knee contact he made during the Wizards' 113-99 loss to Dallas on November 7.

Wall continued to play in the weeks following the collision, only missing one of eight games, but had the MRI after he experienced "left knee discomfort and inflammation," according to the team.

He will be getting platelet rich plasma and viscosupplementation injections after consulting Dr. Richard Parker at the Cleveland Clinic Marymount and Head Team Physician Wiemi Dough.

Wall has been averaging 20.3 points, 9.2 assists and 3.4 rebounds for the Wizards (10-8) during the 2017-18 season.
