The Washington Wizards will be without All-Star point guard John Wall for about six weeks, as Wall is set for a procedure on his left knee on Wednesday. The Washington Post first reported the news.

That means Wall will miss next month's All-Star Game and be sidelined until sometime in the month of March. Wall, 27, is averaging 19.4 points, 9.3 assists and 1.3 steals per game.

Wall consulted with knee specialist Dr. Richard Parker in Cleveland, OH on Monday before the procedure was diagnosed.

Wall missing that much time means the Wizards will have to rely on backup point guards Tomas Satoransky and Tim Frazier, unless they make an aggressive move before the Feb. 8 trade deadline.

The 27-22 Wizards are 6-6 without Wall this season.
