Wizards’ Brown out for a month with hurt calf

When players report early to build chemistry with their teammates ahead of training camp, it is usually a good thing. For the Wizards this summer, it has led to an unfortunate string of bad injury luck.

First Isaiah Thomas tore a ligament in his left thumb, on his shooting hand, and required surgery that will keep him out of all of the preseason and likely the start of the regular season as well. Now, as the Wizards announced on Tuesday, Troy Brown Jr. is dealing with a left calf strain. His timeline is four weeks.

That will put the start of the regular season in jeopardy for Brown as well.

The news broke four weeks and one day before the Wizards’ first game, on Oct. 23 at the Dallas Mavericks. These injuries are on top of forward C.J. Miles’ foot surgery in July. He was at a Mystics’ playoff game last week still in a walking boot, which is not a great sign for his availability in training camp, which begins Tuesday. When he had the surgery on July 25, the Wizards said he would be re-evaluated in six weeks. It has now been two months.

Thomas, Brown, and Miles are three rotation players. The Wizards are also missing John Wall, who remains sidelined as he rehabs from a ruptured Achilles. The injuries are piling up and they haven’t even held their media day.

Brown’s injury is extra pertinent because he figures to be in the same position mix as Miles. If you are filling out a starting lineup for the Wizards, those are probably your two best choices at small forward. And the Wizards don’t exactly have a lot of depth behind them.

Up next could be Justin Anderson, who is a roster-fringe journeyman at this point. Second-round pick Admiral Schofield is probably not ready for important minutes. First-round pick Rui Hachimura seems more suited to play the four. And Jordan McRae seems to be a better fit at guard.

Two struggling Eastern Conference teams meet at the Madison Square Garden as the New York Knicks host the Washington Wizards in the regular season of the National Basketball Association.

The match-up is on February 9, 2016 at 8:00 PM ET.

Both teams are below the .500 mark this season and are looking for a spot in the playoffs. A win over each other should be a big deal for the franchises.

Between the two, the Wizards are dubbed as the better team on paper but have found wins hard to come by as they struggle with injuries and very inconsistent playing.

The Wizards have lost six of their last eight games and are coming off a painful 108-104 loss at New Orleans. John Wall had a big game of 23 points and 10 assists, Bradley Beal added 22 points while Otto Porter Jr had 20 points but it still wasn’t enough to keep up with the Hornets who outscored them by 60-46 in a dominant second half. With the loss, Washington falls to 22-27 on the season which leaves them three games out of the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference standings.

The Knicks have lost nine of their last 10 games and are coming off a fifth straight loss, a 101-96 defeat to the Nuggets at home. Kristaps Porzingis and Carmelo Anthony led the team with 21 points each while Arron Afflalo chipped in with 15 points, but the Knicks just went ice-cold in a 24-17 fourth quarter dominated by the streaky Nuggets. With the loss, New York fell to 23-31 overall and 14-14 at home where they’ve lost six of their last seven.

With the loss, Washington falls to 20-23 on the season and 10-9 on the road.
