Former UK ALl-American point guard and current Washington Wizard John Wall visited a doctor today to get an update on the stress injury in his left knee that was originally projected to cost the him at least eight weeks of the 2012-13 NBA season. He received a positive report and remains on track to return within the next few weeks, likely the last week of November, and he’s very anxious to get back onto the court and help his struggling Wizard teammates who fell to 0-3:
Not playing basketball, period, is tough. This is my first time really being out for a long time and not being able to come back. But it’s something you’ve got to deal with and take your time and come back healthy. I learned my first year listen to my body more than my heart. I came back injured but I still came back okay, but I didn’t come back the way I wanted to. I know to take my time this time.
The Florida Gators basketball program has fallen mightily since claiming back-to-back titles form 2006-2007, and now they’re getting off to a rough start to the 2013 campaign after Head Coach Billy Donovan announced that starting point guard Scottie Wilbekin has been suspended indefinitely for an undisclosed reason.
