Hachimura has been dealing with soreness in his groin, which has forced him to miss the last seven games for the Wizards. Brooks has said there doesn’t seem to be any concern about the rookie’s ability to recover, but the team will likely be cautious with their approach.
In his 25 appearances with the Wizards, Rui Hachimura has racked up averages of 13.9 points on 48.2 percent shooting from the field (20.8 percent from beyond the arc), 5.8 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 29.2 minutes per outing.
Washington has been a real M.A.S.H. unit of late due to all the injuries that have befallen the roster. However, the shorthanded Wizards made waves on Monday night with an impressive victory over the Miami Heat, with Jordan McRae, Garrison Mathews and Ian Mahinmi all showing out.
In other Wizards injury-related news, Bradley Beal was a participant in Tuesday’s practice and is listed as questionable for Wednesday’s matchup against the Orlando Magic. Beal has missed two consecutive games due to a lower right leg ailment, but he seems to be trending in the right direction.
