Washington Wizards star guard John Wall had a knee procedure Wednesday and is expected to miss six to eight weeks.

The 2018 All-Star had an arthroscopic debridement procedure done on his left knee and will start his rehabilitation immediately, according to the Wizards official Twitter page.

Wall's procedure was performed by Dr. Richard Parker at the Cleveland Clinic Marymount.

He suffered the injury on Nov. 7 after making knee-to-knee contact during the team's 113-99 loss to the Dallas Mavericks.

Wizards team officials previously confirmed Tuesday that he would have the procedure, and Wall had a consultation with Parker and team doctor Wiemi Douoguih.

The 27-year-old is currently averaging 19.4 points, 9.3 assists and 3.6 rebounds per game.

Wall was selected by fellow 2018 All-Star Lebron James to play on his team in the February exhibition game, but he will be replaced by Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond.
