Wiz Insider: Wizards’ Kris Humphries out three to four weeks after undergoing surgery on right hand

GREENVILLE, S.C. — The Washington Wizards made it a point to solidify their front court this summer with depth. Just two games into the preseason, that depth is already being tested. The Wizards announced Friday that big man Kris Humphries underwent surgery on his right hand to repair nerve damage Thursday and is expected to miss three to four weeks before he can resume basketball activity. Humphries lacerated his hand between his ring and pinkie fingers on the rim in the second quarter of Washington’s preseason opener against the Chicago Bulls on Monday and needed eight stitches.

Kris Humphries out 3-4 weeks with finger injury

The laceration he suffered in the preseason opener is more serious than expected. I didn't think Kris Humphries' finger injury from last Monday was a big deal, but apparently I was wrong. The Wizards' forward will miss 3-4 weeks after undergoing surgery to fix nerve damage, the team announced. That means Humphries will miss the beginning of the regular season. The injury is between his ring and pinky finger and took place after Humphries raced back to contest a Jimmy Butler layup in Monday's preseason game. He left the game and returned to D.C. for the evaluation. The team said there was...

Kris Humphries probably won't start shooting threes, but it'd be cool if he did

The Wizards' big man, whose range generally extends only to 20 feet, was shooting three-pointers at the end of the team's first practice. Does this mean he's the team's new Stretch 4? CSN Washington's Ben Standig noticed something interesting at the end of the Wizards' first training camp practice on Tuesday: Getting to watch Wizards practice now. Well, more like watching them shoot.

No definitive conclusions were...

Kris Humphries does good work on the basketball court. Shooting 3-pointers, not so much. Here's why that could change with the Wizards.

Kris Humphries must protect the basket on the second unit

Kris Humphries has been lumped into the big man archetype of being unable to protect the rim while being just so-so offensively. Will he be able to expand his abilities in Washington and anchor the second unit? This is our seventh Summer Checklist piece where we break down an area of weakness each player on the roster can improve. Previously: Bradley Beal | John Wall | Marcin Gortat | Nene | Otto Porter | Paul Pierce. The Wizards entered last season with a big man rotation of Trevor Booker, Jan Vesely, Kevin Seraphin and Al Harrington. Two of those players are washed out of the league...
