Washington Wizards' Thomas Bryant out for season with torn ACL, source says

Washington Wizards center Thomas Bryant has a partially torn ACL in his left knee, with a source telling ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski that Bryant will miss the rest of the season.

The Wizards announced the diagnosis Sunday. Bryant suffered the injury less than two minutes into the Wizards' 128-124 loss to the Heat on Saturday after incidental contact with two Miami players.

Bryant, 23, was averaging a career-high 14.3 points on 64.8% shooting and 6.1 rebounds in 27.1 minutes per game this season. He had been one of only two players to start all 10 games this season for the Wizards.

"I just know one thing about TB: He's a great kid that works hard, plays with passion, gives you everything he has," Wizards coach Scott Brooks said.
