Antawn Jamison Out 3-5 Weeks

by October 23, 2009

As always, the Wizards’ season will start with injuries throwing a monkey wrench into the whole thing: “The Washington Wizards are forced to start yet another season with a sidelined all-star after an MRI on Thursday revealed that forward Antawn Jamison’s right shoulder injury will force him to miss the next three to five weeks. This is the second consecutive season that the Wizards have started a regular season with at least one major piece missing. Both Gilbert Arenas and Brendan Haywood were out with injuries at the start of last season, and the Wizards went on to match their worst 82-game season in franchise history. The Wizards, though, are optimistic that because Jamison’s injury won’t require surgery and since his shoulder has made considerable progress in the past week, it would only keep him out the first 10 or so games.”
