Washington Wizards power forward Trevor Booker has not played since Nov. 19 and could be out a few more weeks, according to a Washington Post report. Booker had been listed as day-to-day with a strained right knee and missed the Wizards' last five games.
Booker has been experiencing pain in his knee and was told by doctors in New York that he should rest until the pain subsides. Booker was injured in the Wizards' loss to the Indiana Pacers on Nov. 19 on a fourth-quarter layup attempt.
Booker is in his third season with the Wizards and is averaging 6.8 points, 5.6 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.2 steals per game in 24.1 minutes. Booker's shooting percentage has plummeted from 54.9 percent as a rookie to 53.1 percent last season to 45.3 percent this season. Booker's scoring and rebounding numbers have also dropped from last season even though he is playing a similar amount of minutes as he did in 2011-12.
