Jamison Out For A Month

In General NBA on October 23, 2009 at 5:34 pm

RealGM reports

Washington Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld announced today that forward Antawn Jamison’s right shoulder has been re-evaluated and that the findings were consistent with the original diagnosis of a subluxation.He is expected to miss from four to six weeks from the date of the injury (Jamison sustained the injury in the Wizards’ 109-104 win in Cleveland on Oct. 14).

Good Opportunity

Good opportunity for Andray Blatche and JaVale McGee to put their talents on display.

  • Blatche will get the starting nod in Jamison’s absence and will have the chance to play extended minutes alongside a true center in Brendan Haywood.
  • While McGee will get some rotation minutes, minutes which he wasn’t likely to receive otherwise.

Painful Loss?

Eh? Sure it is, but it’s only one month so it won’t hurt too much.

The Wizards are still looking very comfortable in their quest for a return to the playoffs.
