Washington Wizards on Thursday announced that their all-star guard John Wall had been diagnosed with five fractures in his left arm and wrist. Wall was injured during Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday.
Without Wall, the Wizards lost Game 2 to the Hawks on Tuesday, though a much bigger blow awaited them ahead of game 3 in the form of Wall’s injury. Wizards’ guard underwent multiple examinations that revealed 5 fractures. The Superstar’s return is now uncertain, and he might miss the rest of the series.
Now, Wizards’ management is consulting multiple specialists and physicians to determine the fastest and most effective course of treatment to ensure the quickest recovery for Wall. Further updates will only be provided after information becomes available.
Ramon Sessions replaced Wall in game 2 of the semifinal series and scored 21 points, four assists and three rebounds.
Wall had a fantastic post-season in this edition of NBA so far. Even after sustaining injury in game 1, Wall carried on with a taped wrist and contributed 12 points, 8 assists, five rebounds, three blocks and a steal to guide the Wizards to 104-98 victory over the top-seeded Hawks. In the first five games of this post season, Wall averaged 17.4 points, 12.6 assists and 4.6 rebounds per game.
