The Washington Wizards have encountered their first injury setback right at the onset of their training camp.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Landry Shamet, Washington Wizards’ guard, suffered a fractured toe, which will sideline him for a period ranging from 2 to 4 weeks.
The exact circumstances surrounding Shamet’s injury remain shrouded in uncertainty, adding an element of intrigue as the Wizards’ regular-season opener on October 25th approaches rapidly.
The injury will unfortunately prevent Shamet from participating in the initial stages of the training camp and remains a situation that warrants close observation.
Shamet, who joined the Wizards following the Chris Paul trade with the Phoenix Suns, was expected to be a key contributor, capable of occupying minutes at both guard positions off the bench.
As the preseason commences on October 12th, there is a possibility that Shamet may miss a portion of the regular season due to his injury.
In his absence, the Wizards may turn to Deion Wright and Johnny Davis as viable options to step into the role alongside Tyus Jones in the Washington backcourt.
