Washington Wizards guard Delon Wright, the team’s top perimeter defenseman, is expected to miss six to eight weeks with a right hamstring injury, sources told ESPN on Thursday.
The Wizards said Wright suffered a Grade 2 strain to his right hamstring during the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s win over the Detroit Pistons. He played 16 minutes in that game, scoring five points.
The Wizards said Wright’s injury will be reassessed in about three weeks, but Wright is expected to be out nearly two months.
In his eighth season, the 2015 first-round pick had a significant impact on Washington’s 3-1 start, averaging nearly 23 minutes per game with 6.5 points, 3.2 assists and 2.5 rebounds.
Wright, 30, signed a two-year, $16 million contract as a free agent this summer. He spent last season with the Atlanta Hawks and made stops in Sacramento, Detroit, Dallas, Memphis and Toronto.
