Wizards’ Glen Rice Jr. fractures wrist in celebration, out 3-6 weeks after surgery
The basketball gods can be cruel.
The Washington Wizards were celebrating a dramatic win over the New York Knicks the other night — we focused on the Knicks’ failings but credit to the Wizards for making the right plans and knocking down the big shots. For a team with playoff dreams it was a win worth celebrating.
But in the celebration Glen Rice Jr. injured his wrist — actually fractured it so badly it required surgery and he will not be out 3-6 weeks as he recovers the team announced.
This isn’t a big blow to the Wizards’ rotation, Rice was used sparingly (especially with Bradley Beal back), but it is a blow to the rookie trying to carve out a role on this team.
