Martell Webster has tried to gut out the pain in his right hip, which has a tear in the connective tissue because of a bone chip, but he will have surgery on it Friday, has confirmed, which will end his season without ever starting. As a result, the Wizards will file for a Disabled Player Exception with the NBA which gives them the option of acquiring a 15th player at half of his $5.5 million salary slot. They also can acquire a player via trade but he’d have to be in the final year of his contract.
Storyline: Martell Webster Injury

Martell Webster out four to six months

For nearly two months, Webster tried to play through the pain. He was given cortisone shots and prescribed glasses to help distribute his weight more evenly after doctors told him he had been putting additional stress on his right side. The recipe produced encouraging results and he was on the practice floor for a session the day before the regular season started. The progress, however, was short-lived and Webster has decided to go the other route. He will undergo surgery Friday in Nashville, Tenn. and expects to be sidelined 4-6 months.
