Washington Wizards point guard John Wall is expected to miss about two weeks due to left knee discomfort and inflammation, the team announced Saturday. He scored a season-high 31 points and dished out 11 assists in the Wizard's most recent game, a loss to the Hornets Wednesday.

John Wall will miss several weeks with a knee injury. Wall will receive platelet-rich plasma treatment and viscosupplementation injections in his left knee, according to a statement from the Wizards.

Wall has suffered a series of knee injuries in his career. Already thin at the point guard position, the Wizards will likely start journeyman Tim Frazier, who is averaging 3.2 points on 36.8 percent shooting and 3.9 assists in 16.6 minutes a night.

Wall could be out the next seven games and possibly return on December 9. Wall, who averages 20.3 points and 9.2 assists, previously said fluid on his knee built up after he received IV fluids to deal with illness and migraines before the Wizards hosted Atlanta on November 11. They entered the season with expectations of contending in the East, but at 10-8 they've struggled to separate themselves from the rest of the playoff contenders.
