Wizards’ C.J. Miles out indefinitely after undergoing wrist surgery
Washington Wizards forward C.J. Miles will be out of commission indefinitely after undergoing surgery on Wednesday morning to repair ligament damage in his left wrist, according to an official report from the team.
It’s not clear how long Miles will be sidelined, as he is without a timetable for return. He suffered the injury on Nov. 26 against the Denver Nuggets.
The fact that Miles will be sidelined indefinitely is tough news for the Wizards, who are currently holding a 6-13 overall record without John Wall. Unfortunately, Wall is expected to miss all of this season due to an Achilles injury.
Miles has made 10 appearances with the Wizards this season after coming over from the Memphis Grizzlies this past summer in the Dwight Howard trade. Miles has averages of 6.4 points on 32.2 percent shooting from the field (31.4 percent from beyond the arc), 1.2 assists, 1.2 rebounds and a steal in 16.1 minutes per outing.
With Miles ruled out, the Wizards will likely give a bit more playing time to Troy Brown, Jordan McRae and Isaac Bonga.
The Wizards will look to snap a three-game losing streak on Thursday night, when they’ll serve as hosts to the Sixers. Tip-off inside Capital One Arena is set for 7:00 p.m. ET.
