The Washington Wizards' March of Death continues today with the news that injured combo guard Randy Foye is probably done for the season. Foye's MRI revealed a sprained left wrist that hasn't healed properly.
Foye injured himself on Feb. 22 against Chicago -- the same night Howard got hurt -- but continued to play through the pain.
He later had an MRI that showed he had a cyst and some strained tendons in his wrist. Foye aggravated the injury on Friday in Charlotte, where he scored 17 points off the bench, and was forced to miss Saturday's game against Utah. Coach Flip Saunders said that the injury should keep him out for seven to 10 days, with Foye to be evaluated afterward. But with only 16 days left in this season, his return doesn't seem feasible.
Well, why the hell not? The Wizards have lost players for the rest of the season for everything from injuries [Josh Howard, Randy Foye] to legal problems [Gilbert Arenas, Javaris Crittenton] so this shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. If ever you thought news for the Wizards couldn't get any worse, this season should be a lesson to you. Things can ALWAYS get worse -- and with the Wizards, they probably will.
The team will likely leave Shaun Livingston in the starting lineup as the point guard and Earl Boykins, who has been spending a lot of time on the bench lately, will get more burn. I don't know if the Wiz will sign a player from the NBDL, but after letting promising rookie Alonzo Gee leave for no reason earlier today, what's the use of doing anything like that?
