Stackhouse to miss rest of season
Washington, DC (Sports Network) – The Washington Wizards Sunday announced
that swingman Jerry Stackhouse will miss the rest of the season with a knee
Stackhouse, who scored 20 points in a loss to the Los Angeles Lakers Saturday
night, told head coach Eddie Jordan after the contest that his knee could not
recover completely without more rest.
The 29-year-old Stackhouse had arthroscopic knee surgery on October 21 and
missed the first three months of the season after he was diagnosed with
chondromalacia — a condition where the lining in the kneecap wears away.
He returned to the Wizards on February 1 and played in 12 games averaging 14.1
points and 3.8 rebounds.
