Early Saturday, the Washington Wizards announced that John Wall underwent an MRI exam on his injured left knee. Not quite as good as last season, but he is averaging 20.3 points, 9.2 assists and 3.4 rebounds per game. He scored a season-high 31 points and dished out 11 assists in the Wizard's most recent game, a loss to the Hornets Wednesday. Obviously, the knee injury has impacted his performance. Already thin at the point guard position, the Wizards will likely start journeyman Tim Frazier, who is averaging 3.2 points on 36.8 percent shooting and 3.9 assists in 16.6 minutes a night.
