Wizards’ Jamison sidelined 2-8 weeks

Washington, DC (Sports Network) – Washington Wizards forward Antawn Jamison
will reportedly be sidelined for the next two to eight weeks with a sprained
left knee.

According to the Washington Times, Jamison, who scored 69 points in his prior
two games, will miss action because of a sprained left knee suffered in
Tuesday’s 104-99 victory over Detroit.

Jamison banged the knee in a collision with teammate DeShawn Stevenson at the
conclusion of a Washington fast break midway through the first quarter.

“We don’t know exactly what is wrong yet,” Washington coach Eddie Jordan said
to the paper. “He has been sore and he will not travel with the team to
Toronto. He is going to stay and get an MRI on Thursday and we will take it
from there.”

The forward had also hyperextended the knee against Boston on January 20, but
returned to action later in the contest.

Jamison has averaged 19.7 points and 8.1 rebounds per game.
