Here’s the Sixers/Wizards injury update you’ve all been waiting for:
An MRI reveals a grade 2 calf strain for Wizards F Davis Bertans, source tells ESPN. He will need 4-to-6 weeks for a recovery. Washington is down another key player as they face elimination vs. Sixers in Game 5.

Bertans had a good game one and a good game four, which book-ended clunkers. He was 8-23 from three this series (34.7%) and struggled defensively, but when a team’s leading regular season three-point shooter is ruled out, it’s good news for the other squad. One less offensive weapon for the Wizards is going to help the Sixers wrap this thing up and move on to the second round.
