With out Wall, Wizards finish Thunder's successful streak 102-96

Wizards guard John Wall is expected to miss six weeks

"It's a concern but we have to trust that the doctors and everybody is going to have the best game plan for him going forward and it's always about him going forward, not about us going forward", coach Scott Brooks told reporters Monday, before news that Wall, 27, would have the procedure.

On top of that, Wall will miss the 2018 All-Star game as the National Basketball Association decides on Detriot Pistons Center Andre Drummond as the All-Star replacement. Despite ongoing knee pain and swelling, Wall still managed to average 19.4 points and 9.3 assists for his fifth All-Star selection. He will miss six weeks and the NBA All-Star Game. Doctor Parker previously performed two surgeries on Wall in May 2016.

He also was whistled for a technical foul in the second quarter and a flagrant foul in the third, when he went for a block and instead sent an arm to the chin of Marcin Gortat.

Three people dead after helicopter crash in California
The company's Eric Spitzer said he leased the 2003-model helicopter to John Wayne Airport-based Revolution Aviation. At least five people were injured after a helicopter crashed into a residential home in Newport Beach, Calif. .

So just how bad is this for the Wizards? Their plus/minus was -1.4, which is a considerable step down from their overall plus/minus of +1.6 for the season.

Neither team shot particularly well: The Wizards wound up making 38.2 percent of their field-goal attempts - they missed 13 consecutive 3-point tries in one stretch - and the Thunder were at 37.5 percent. As ESPN points out, Washington plays like the Celtics with Wall on the floor and like the Knicks with him off it.

Two years ago, it was easy to say who the best player in a Wizards uniform was. He will not appear in the upcoming All-Star Game, either. Wall's absence simply isn't going to help matters.

Facebook begins privacy push ahead of tough new European law
And national regulators will be able to issue fines if companies collect personal data without consent or misuse personal data. This year, we'll introduce a new privacy center that features core privacy settings in a single place.

But it's clear Wall hasn't been himself this season. The other concern is that the team might drop so much that it'll have a nightmare matchup in the first round of the playoffs.

Yet the Wizards' remaining schedule features opponents that boast a composite 55% winning percentage, the most hard of any team in the Eastern conference. With the trade deadline looming, Cleveland has been in a funk lately.

Apple's iPhone SE sequel reportedly won't be a big revamp
A leading Apple analyst says that Apple's resources may be stretched too thin to come out with a successor to its tiniest iPhone. Apple is said to be maintaining its existing production target of 30M units across the iPhone 7/Plus and 8/Plus ranges.
