Andray Blatche Injury: Wizards Forward Out Three To Five Weeks With Calf

Andray Blatche will miss up to five weeks dealing with a calf injury, according to Washington Wizards head coach Randy Wittman.

The Washington Wizards will be without forward Andray Blatche for three to five weeks with a calf injury, according to Wizards head coach Randy Wittman. Blatche has been dealing with a calf injury and was benched in Saturday's game, he was also listed as day-to-day and questionable for Monday's match up with the Chicago Bulls, but it looks like he's going to be out for quite a while.

In thirteen starts this season with the Wizards, Blatche had averaged 10.3 points per game and 7.1 rebounds per game. With Blatche out it looks like Jan Vesely and Trevor Booker will get more playing time. Center Hamady Ndiaye will replace Blatche on the roster for now.

"He's probably looking at, after the doctors looked at an MRI, maybe 3-5 weeks with a strain," Wittman said. "He tweaked it pretty good in Charlotte, and obviously there's a lot of bleeding in there, which leads to the inflammation in the calf. We've got to get that out of there first, and then we'll have a better idea what we're looking at."
