WASHINGTON — Washington Wizards point guard John Wall is expected to miss about six to eight weeks after having arthroscopic surgery on his left knee.

The team announced the predicted timeline after Wall's operation on Wednesday (Thursday, Manila time).

If Wall is sidelined for two months, he would sit out more than 25 games and return for the last half-dozen or so of the regular season.

He already missed Washington's past two games, both victories, including 102-96 against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday night.

In all this season, Washington is 7-6 without their All-Star guard, and 28-22 overall, which puts them fifth in the Eastern Conference.

Wall is second on the Wizards in scoring, averaging 19.4 points, and is second in the league with 9.3 assists per game.
