The Wizards have finally battled through COVID-19 injuries and rebounds across the team to gain some momentum in their challenge to secure a slot in the Eastern Conference Playoff Tournament or even the larger range.
But they are about to do without the quick forward Davis Bertans, whose team announced Friday that he injured his calf for the second time in seven days and missed the next two weeks.
Coach Scott Brooks, referring to the injury after Thursday ‘s game against Utah, he said that although the team is “hoping for the best” he may not be bothered well by the Bertans’ injury.

Bertans left the team’s March 12 game against Philadelphia early, jumping into the ensuing rivalry against the Bucks. He returned to action Monday, also against Milwaukee, playing in that game and the next… only to leave Thursday after just four minutes of play.
