The Wizards gave John Wall off to rest his sore left foot on Thursday, but there appears to be a strong chance that he'll play Friday vs. the Chicago Bulls in hopes of ending a two-game losing streak.
"He's feeling good today," Wizards coach Scott Brooks said after a 112-107 loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday. "He had treatment all morning, throughout the day. See how he feels tomorrow. He feels good but you never know. ... I anticipate him feeling pretty good tomorrow morning and we'll go from there."
Wall went down at the end of the second half vs. Dallas when his foot buckled under him on his attack of the basket. After X-Rays, he was cleared and started the third quarter. No further testing was required Thursday.
"It’s up in the air., 50-50," Wall told CSNmidatlantic.com about his chances of playing Friday. "Just going to be smart about it. That’s the most important thing. I know we have something very important we’re trying to reach. Regular-season games mean a lot but if you’re not able to go you’re better off resting yourself for what’s bigger, what’s at stake in the season”
