Wizards forward Rui Hachimura will be absent for about three weeks due to an eye infection, bilateral epidemic keratoconjunctivitis (EKC).
Hachimura was diagnosed with EKC on December 16th and missed the last two games before the Wizards season.
The big news for Wizards heading for the new season is the recent deal that sent John Wall to the Rockets for point guard Russell Westbrook.
Westbrook and shooting guard Bradley Beal form one of the NBA’s most talented backcoats. Of course, on paper. Now the development of chemistry is coming.
Wizards also resigned shooter Davis Burtans and drafted the talented rookie Deni Avdija.
