Trevor Booker injury: Wizards power forward examined in New York Friday

The Wizards remain uncertain how long Trevor Booker will be out, but recent evidence seems to show that he could be sidelined for a while.

Washington Wizards' power forward Trevor Booker was reportedly in New York on Friday to have his right knee looked at by Dr. David Altchek. According to Craig Stouffer, Altchek is also examining the knee of point guard John Wall.

Booker has not played since injuring his knee against the Indiana Pacers on Nov. 19. At the time, the injury did not seem severe. Following a setback, Booker attempted to return to practice on Monday, Dec. 10, but he was extremely limited. The team's decision to send him to Dr. Altchek may indicate that the injury was more serious than originally suspected. RotoWorld went so far as to call Booker "out indefinitely," until the team says otherwise.

In nine games this season, Booker has averaged 6.8 points and 5.6 rebounds per game. The third-year big man started Washington's first seven games at power forward, but was moved out of the starting lineup on Nov. 17 in favor of Jan Vesely.
