TORONTO (AP) -- Washington Wizards guard John Wall will miss Sunday's game at Toronto because of a sore left knee, but coach Scott Brooks said there's a "great chance" the four-time All-Star will be able to return Monday night at Milwaukee.

Monday marks the first time this season the Wizards are playing on back-to-back nights. Washington, which visits Charlotte on Wednesday, is beginning a stretch of three games in four days.

Wall is averaging 19.9 points and a team-high 9.3 assists per game. He scored just eight points and missed nine of 12 field goal attempts in Friday's 91-88 loss to Miami, going scoreless through the first three quarters, and was limping in the locker room afterward.

Wall also missed a Nov. 5 game at Toronto because of a sprained left shoulder, but returned the following game.

Tim Frazier was set to start against Toronto on Sunday.
