WASHINGTON -- Ish Smith's left hamstring injury has gone from a day-to-day situation to week-to-week, as Wizards head coach Scott Brooks described on Friday night.
Smith, 31, had an MRI and will now be "out for some time," Brooks said. The Wizards expect to re-evaluate him in a week, though his timeline is now uncertain.
Smith had played in all 60 of the Wizards games this season when he was unexpectedly out against the Blazers on Wednesday night. Brooks said Smith hurt his hamstring in the second half of their loss to Sacramento on Tuesday.
With Smith out, that leaves the Wizards thin at the point guard spot. Starter Shabazz Napier is the only true point guard left on their roster.
They will continue to experiment with non-point guard lineups, Brooks says. And that could include more of Troy Brown Jr. handling the ball. Brown is a wing by trade, but has played plenty of point guard throughout his basketball life.
"We talked about it with the group today. We kind of simuated a game opportunity that we're going to play with no traditional point guard. How do we generate offense? How do we generate stops? I think we have a pretty good grasp of it," Brooks said.
