Wizards’ Okafor Optimistic About Returning
(Emeka) Okafor has already begun rehabilitation but doesn’t believe that he will need surgery. “Everyone is pretty optimistic that things should resolve with physical therapy,” Okafor said. “I feel the onset is the worst of it. Now things are getting better day by day. I’m not in any serious discomfort, just going through the proper steps to make sure it heals properly.”
When asked about possibly missing the entire season, Okafor responded, “I’m positive I’ll make it back.” But he did not offer a timetable for his return.
