Wizards forward Rui Hachimura will miss roughly the first three weeks of the NBA season with an eye infection commonly known as pink eye.
Hachimura has bilateral epidemic keratoconjunctivitis, or EKC, diagnosed last week so he missed Washington’s final two preseason games.
”The eye doctor said it’s a severe case, and we just have to be patient,” coach Scott Brooks said after practice yesterday. ”Just going to monitor him day to day. He’s out for some time now. Blurred vision, sensitive to light. Other than that, he’s getting better. Just going to take some time.”
