Washington Wizards star point guard John Wall still hasn’t officially been ruled out for Game 4 against the Atlanta Hawks on Monday night, but it sure doesn’t sound like Wall will be playing anytime soon because of his left hand injury:
Wall still hasn’t dribbled a basketball. Wittman called his status a “gametime” decision.

Considering dribbling is a pretty important part of basketball, especially for a point guard, something tells me Wall won’t be playing in Game 4. Just a hunch.
The positive for the Wizards is that they’re up 2-1 in the series and have already beaten the Hawks once without Wall. Sure, Game 3 was a near disaster when Washington blew a huge fourth-quarter advantage, but Paul Pierce saved the day with his game-winner at the buzzer.
Beating Atlanta again without Wall sounds like a tall order, but it’s certainly not out of the question considering the Hawks haven’t been playing well and the Wizards have been getting strong play from their supporting cast. It would help to get a better showing out of Ramon Sessions (2-of-10 in Game 4), but Nene finally broke out of his slump and Otto Porter continues to blossom.
