John Wall Doesn’t Need Surgery for Injured Hand

Washington Wizards point guard John Wall played through a left hand injury in the final two games of the Wizards’ postseason run, and Wall said Monday he won’t need surgery to repair the five non-displaced fractures he suffered:

Wall suffered the injury in Washington’s Game 1 victory over the Atlanta Hawks just over two weeks ago. The point guard missed the next three games of the series, and the Wizards went 1-2 in those three games. He returned for Games 5 and 6, but he couldn’t do enough to avoid a heartbreaking series loss.

Washington was right there in both of the games, but Al Horford won Game 5 in the final seconds and the Wizards lost Game 6 and the series when Paul Pierce‘s game-tying three was ruled too late.

Wall averaged 17.5 points and 10.0 assists in the two games after he returned, but he shot just 14-of-35 from the field and didn’t make a single three-pointer. While the loss was tough, it’s good news that he won’t need surgery.
