This is not a surprise, but it doesn’t make it any less of a blow to the already struggling Washington Wizards.
Forward C.J. Miles had left wrist surgery and is out with no timetable for a return, the team announced.
The injury happened when he fell taking a charge against Denver back on Nov. 26. Since then there have been questions about whether or not he would be out for the season, Washington saying there is no timetable leaves open the door to a return. What it does mean is that Miles is going to be out for an extended period of time. Miles is in the final year of his contract (he was acquired as part of the Dwight Howard trade).
Miles, 32, missed the first five games of the season coming off foot surgery, but since he returned was averaging 16 minutes a night off the bench for the Wizards, scoring 6.4 points per game.
Isaac Bonga has moved into the starting lineup and with the injury Troy Brown Jr. will see more run. Against bigger teams Rui Hachimura could be pressed into duty at the three. Miles’ injury could also open the door for rookie Admiral Schofield.
