Despite dealing with both a sore left wrist and jammed right pinky finger, John Wall will play on Saturday night as the Wizards host the Philadelphia 76ers, CSN has learned.
Wall had X-rays on his wrist and finger and then an MRI on his finger. No structural damage was found, but he may play with a splint on his right hand against Philadelphia [7:30 p.m. on CSN].
Wall participated in practice on Saturday at the Verizon Center and did drills with a splint or tape on his right pinky and ring finger. He was making shots, but at times showed frustration while getting used to the new equipment on his primary shooting hand.
Wall, 26, is averaging 22.8 points, 10.3 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 2.3 steals per game this season. He first complained of pain in his wrist and finger after the Wizards' loss to the Celtics on Wednesday night. Wall was limited to a season-low of nine points by Boston.
