The Washington Wizards have been granted an $8.6-million disabled player exception for John Wall, sources told The Athletic's Shams Charania.
The club has until March 11 to use the exception. The league's disabled player exception allows a team to sign a replacement player for the lesser of either half of the injured player's salary or the non-taxpayer mid-level exception. It doesn't count toward the salary cap.
The Wizards (20-26) sit 10th in the Eastern Conference, just two games back of the final playoff spot.
