Washington Wizards guard Delon Wright, the team’s ideal perimeter defender, is anticipated to miss six to eight weeks with a correct hamstring injury, sources told ESPN on Thursday.
The Wizards mentioned Wright suffered a Grade two strain of his correct hamstring throughout the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s victory against the Detroit Pistons. He played 16 minutes in that game, scoring 5 points.
The Wizards mentioned Wright’s injury would be reevaluated in roughly 3 weeks, but the expectation is that Wright could miss almost two months.
In his eighth season, the 2015 initial-round choose had created a considerable effect on Washington’s three-1 start out, averaging almost 23 minutes a game with six.five points, three.two assists and two.five rebounds.
Wright, 30, signed a two-year, $16 million deal as a cost-free agent this summer time. He spent final season with the Atlanta Hawks and has had stops with Sacramento, Detroit, Dallas, Memphis and Toronto.
