John Wall bangs knee in loss to Bucks, puts All-Star Game in jeopardy
It was early in the Bucks’ win over the Wizards in the final game before the All-Star break for both teams, John Wall was pushing the ball in transition, and he collided with O.J. Mayo and drew the foul.
He also hurt his knee. Wall played through the pain the rest of the game on his way to 15 points (on 5-of-19 shooting) and 10 assists, but after the game questioned whether he could go in Sunday’s All-Star Game, where he is slated to be a reserve. From Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post.
Wall isn't sure if he'll play in the all-star game Sunday. It'll depend on how his knee feels. Said he's hurting bad right now.— Jorge Castillo (@jorgecastillo) February 12, 2016
That said, our own J. Michael of CSNMidAtlantic.com says things may not be that bad.
Wall was voted in by the coaches, if he couldn’t go the league would pick a last-minute replacement. But it’s big for Wall’s brand to be seen on that stage, coach Tyronn Lue can limit his minutes if needed, so I would bet on him being in the game.
