Washington Wizards forward Davis Bertans is likely out for the season with a calf injury, ESPN reported Tuesday.

An MRI revealed a Grade 2 calf strain, an injury that typically requires 4-6 weeks of recovery time, per the report.

The Wizards trail 3-1 in their best-of-seven first-round playoff series against the top-seeded Philadelphia 76ers, with Game 5 scheduled for Wednesday night in Philadelphia.

Bertans had 15 points and four rebounds in 23 minutes on Monday night as Washington staved off elimination with a 122-114 victory.

Bertans, 28, is averaging 9.3 points, 2.8 rebounds and 26.5 minutes in the series. He posted 11.5 points and 2.9 boards and shot 39.5 percent from 3-point range in 57 games (seven starts) during the regular season, the Latvia native’s second campaign with Washington and fifth in the NBA.
