"Our medical staff is optimistic," Georgetown coach John Thompson said, according to the Washington Post. "We do not have [an] exact timetable ...[but] we expect to have Chris back before [the] end of [the] season."
Wright is averaging 13.1 points and 5.4 assists per game.

The best part about testing yourself early is that you have a notable win in your back pocket if all goes well.
In fairness, all did not go well for Dayton on Saturday.
The Flyers got a scare.
But enough went well to help the 21st-ranked Flyers overcome a double-digit deficit in the second half and beat Creighton. The final score was 90-80. All-American candidate Chris Wright got 25 points and eight rebounds. But the biggest storyline from the day is that the Flyers exited with a victory that should ultimately help them A) enhance their seed for the NCAA tournament, or B) earn an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament if they don't win the Atlantic 10's automatic bid considering it's a victory that came at the expense of the team picked second in the Missouri Valley Conference.
Bottom line, it was a good opening weekend for the Flyers.
They entered it 0-0.
They exited it battle-tested and still unblemished.
