John Wall Injury: Wall Will Not Play Vs. Los Angeles Lakers With Right Knee Tendonitis

Those that think John Wall may be injury-prone have more ammunition for their theory. Wall has been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers with a new injury: right knee tendonitis. 

Via Craig Stouffer of the Washington Examiner:

Rt knee tendonitis will keep John Wall out vs. #lakers . Flip said he didn't think Blatche will go. Arenas still probable.#wizards

Wall had a bout of tendonitis during the Summer League, but otherwise, this is a new one. Wall has missed games due to left foot soreness, ankle injuries and a jammed thumb, but the right knee tendonitis is somewhat new. It remains a growing concern that Wall's style of play is problematic, or, worse, that the Wizards' training staff has not properly diagnosed him. This will be Wall's eighth missed game out of 23 games this season, and he's been in pain in several of the 15 games he has played. 

Without Wall, Kirk Hinrich will likely move back into the Wizards' starting lineup.
