Hopefully this will be the last injury news we’ll report this offseason.
The Washington Wizards have dealt with numerous injuries this past year, and it continued today with Chris Singleton, who will reportedly be out 6-8 weeks.
Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld announced that forward Chris Singleton will have outpatient surgery today to repair a Jones fracture to the fifth metatarsal of his left foot. He will be out approximately six to eight weeks.
Chris Singleton was reportedly hurt in the voluntary workout, which was set up by John Wall as a part of their “mini-camp” prior to the start of training camp later this month. Singleton looked pretty good during the summer league, and was already looking to fight for minutes during this offseason.
Singleton wasn’t supposed to play a big role in Washington this season, but seeing anyone get hurt during their last guaranteed season is discouraging. Kevin Seraphin, Trevor Booker, and Jan Vesely are also entering the final guaranteed seasons under their current contracts, and it doesn’t make it any easier for Singleton to earn a returning spot in the future.
Nevertheless, injuries suck.
