BJ-LEAGUE

Washington out with knee injury


Staff writer

Osaka Evessa power forward Lynn Washington, the bj-league's 2005-06 MVP, is expected to be sidelined for up to four months due to a knee injury sustained in the Nov. 18 game against the Tokyo Apache. The ex-Indiana University player has ligament damage in his right knee as well as damaged cartilage and a broken bone on an inside joint of the knee. He sustained a meniscus tear on the outside of the knee. Washington has been a consistent 20-point, 10-rebound per-game player during his time with Osaka. Evessa coach Kensauku Tennichi has repeatedly praised Washington's leadership skills on and off the court. He has undergone surgery on the knee.
