Storyline: Deni Avdija Injury
After the Washington Wizards selected Issuf Sanon in the second round of the 2018 draft, he spent a turbulent season stashed in Slovenia. His team, Petrol Olimpija, which competed in three leagues, played through a coaching carousel and the instability forced Sanon out of the rotation. Sanon said he collected a “DNP-CD” — short for did not play, coach’s decision — for the final four months. But at least he had “Prison Break” to keep him occupied. “It was a good one,” Sanon said about the show, which became his unexpected English tutor.
Although Sanon did not develop on the court in the way he would have expected, he improved as an English speaker in part due to the now-canceled FOX television series about a man who hatched a scheme to spring his innocent brother from prison. With a better command of the language, Sanon, the 19-year-old Ukrainian guard who was the 44th overall pick last summer, has returned to the Wizards as a more confident player.
