Wizards’ Isaiah Livers To Miss Rest Of Season

Wizards forward Isaiah Livers will miss the remainder of the 2023/24 season due to joint capsule inflammation in his right hip, the team’s PR department tweets.

Livers, who was traded along with Marvin Bagley III and two second-round picks for Danilo Gallinari and Mike Muscala in mid-January, has been beset by injuries during his young career.

The third-year forward has yet to make his Washington debut due to a combination of being out of the rotation and the hip issue. Livers appeared in 23 games (six starts) for Detroit this season, averaging 5.0 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 20.4 minutes. He missed nearly a month of action after suffering an ankle sprain during a pre-training camp workout.

Livers saw action in 52 games last season, his second in the league after being drafted in the second round by the Pistons in 2021. He missed 20 games as a result of a right shoulder sprain.

Livers had a foot injury stemming from his college career at Michigan when he was drafted. That limited him to 19 games in his rookie year. Overall, he’s seen action in 94 career games.

He’ll be a restricted free agent this offseason if the Wizards extend him a qualifying offer worth a projected $2.37MM.
