Wizards place F Jarvis Hayes on IL

Washington, DC (Sports Network) – The Washington Wizards have placed forward
Jarvis Hayes on the injured list.

Hayes is expected to miss the next 4-to-6 weeks with a fractured right
patella. He suffered the injury in the second quarter against the Sacramento
Kings on February 27.

“Jarvis has been a key contributor to our team’s success and it is unfortunate
that this injury occurred,” said president of basketball operations Ernie
Grunfeld said. “We expect Jarvis to make a full recovery and get back to
action with his teammates as soon as possible.”

Hayes is averaging career-highs in points (10.2), rebounds (4.2) and assists
(1.7) in 54 games this season.
