John Wall has 5 Fractures in Left Wrist and Hand

Washington Wizards star point guard John Wall has five non-displaced fractures in his left wrist and hand, the team announced Thursday afternoon.

Wall has undergone multiple examinations and is still consulting doctors to figure out the best way to proceed. There’s currently no timetable for his return to the court. The Wizards have Game 3 against the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday.

Wall suffered the injury after a hard fall on a fast break in the Wizards’ Game 1 victory over the Hawks. The point guard was clearly in a lot of pain, but he stayed in the game and finished with 18 points and 13 assists in 39 minutes.

Wall was optimistic about playing in Game 2, but he sat out and Ramon Sessions got the start instead. Sessions played surprisingly well with 21 points on 8-of-14 shooting, but Wall’s playmaking and defense were missed.

If Wall is out for an extended period of time, that obviously delivers a huge blow to Washington’s chances of pulling off the upset of Atlanta. He’s so important to what the Wizards do on both sides of the ball, and it’s tough to see them advancing if he’s out.
