John Wall has five (!) non-displaced fractures in wrist and hand
John Wall went from leading the Wizards to a Game 1 win over the Hawks to expecting to play Game 2 to being a late scratch to…Wizards release:
Wizards guard John Wall underwent multiple examinations yesterday that revealed five non-displaced fractures in his left wrist and hand.
Wall and the team are currently in consultation with multiple physicians and specialists to determine the best course of action and his playing status has yet to be determined. Further updates will be provided as information becomes available.
Let’s hope that’s not as bad as it sounds, because it sounds really bad. Really bad.
Ramon Sessions played reasonably well while starting for Wall in Game 2, but Sessions can’t replicate Wall, especially defensively.
The Wizards still have a slight chance without Wall – emphasis on slight. Despite being tied 1-1 and not really playing well so far in the series, the Hawks appear to be in the driver’s seat now.
