Wizards' Kispert To Miss 4-6 Weeks With Leg Injury

The Washington Wizards announced on Wednesday that their shooting guard Corey Kispert will miss four to six weeks of action due to a sprained left ankle. 

The injury occurred in the first quarter of Sunday's preseason game against the Golden State Warriors, where Kispert appeared to have stepped on the foot of a Warrior's player. 

Kispert, who is coming into his sophomore season, will unfortunately miss the start of the regular season. He is looking to be a definite rotation piece within the Wizards' offense when he returns on the court. 

The former first-team All-American for the Gonzaga Bulldogs was selected in the first round of the 2021 NBA Draft (15th selection). He averaged eight points, two rebounds, and shot 45 percent from the field in his rookie campaign. 

Washington will begin their 2022-23 season against the Indiana Pacers on October 19th.
