Washington Wizards forward Andray Blatche will miss three to five weeks with a strained left calf, coach Randy Wittman has announced.
Blatche left early in the Wizards’ win over the Charlotte Bobcats on Saturday night and did not return. He also missed three games earlier this month with a sprained right shoulder.
Blatche is averaging 10.3 points and 7.1 rebounds per game this season. He’s been coming off the bench since Wittman replaced Flip Saunders as head coach last week.
The Wizards, who currently sit 13th in the Eastern Conference at 4-16, have recalled center Hamady Ndiaye from the D-League’s Iowa Energy to fill in for Blatche.
