Wizards Vs. 76ers: Andray Blatche Gets 'No Good News' From Shoulder Specialist, He Says

Washington Wizards forward Andray Blatche, who missed Wednesday's game against the Chicago Bulls due to a sore right shoulder, said on Twitter Friday he got "no good news" when he visited "the shoulder doc." The full tweet is below:

Though we're not sure what specifically the doctor told Blatche, this news could rule Blatche out for Friday's contest against the Philadelphia 76ers.

Blatche initially injured his shoulder during the 2010/11 season and didn't recover fully from it, telling Mike Prada during training camp that he felt "75 percent."

Blatche is averaging 11.8 points and 7.2 boards during the 2011/12 season, but is shooting only 39 percent. Flip Saunders moved him to the second unit for Tuesday's game against the Toronto Raptors, promoting Trevor Booker to the starting five.
