The Washington Wizards will enter a crucial year of their rebuilding without their franchise player. The team announced on Friday that star point guard John Wall will miss eight weeks with what is described by the team as "early stages of a stress injury to his left patella."

Wall will not need surgery for the injury, though rehabilitation is set to begin immediately. Wall will miss all of the team's training camp, which begins on Tuesday, as well as the first month of the regular season. The injury is a huge blow to a Wizards team who were looking at this season as a way to get the team back into the playoffs after several seasons of poor performance on the court and embarrassing transgressions off of it.
