Bradley Beal, John Wall believe Wizards should have beaten Hawks


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/18/2015) The Wizards came close to sending their second-round series with the Hawks to a seventh game. But as it happened, the ball stayed in Paul Pierce's hand a tad too long and the Hawks survived and advanced. 

Three days later, the Wizards are still fuming about the lost opportunity

“In my opinion, we should’ve won 4-1,” Bradley Beal said, via The Washington Post

John Wall, who fractured his wrist, said things would have been different if the Hawks were the team that suddenly had to deal with injuries to major guys on the team. 

“You take away Al Horford or Jeff Teague from their team for three games, the series would be totally different,” Wall said. “I’m a big key to this team. This team can still do great things without me. Those guys competed and gave themselves a chance to win."

Wizards G John Wall: Hawks have threatened to hit my hand


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/15/2015) Wizards point guard John Wall, who has been deemed a game-time decision by Randy Wittman for Game 6 of their second-round series Friday night, has claimed that the Hawks have threatened to hit his injured hand.

"I did. A couple of them," when asked if he had experienced some physical plays in Game 5. "Then Dennis Schroder told Kent Bazemore to smack me. I was like, 'You come smack me.'"

Asked if he considered that serious banter or just an attempt to get inside his head and make him think twice about driving to the basket, Wall replied that he wasn't sure. But his injury was sustained on a drive to the hoop in the opener of the series.

"No telling," Wall said. "Competitive game. ... There's going to be a little bit of pain out there. If I can deal with it, I'm fine playing."


Wizards guard John Wall says his wrist is fine after Game 5


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2015) After playing 37 minutes in the Wednesday’s Game 5 loss to the Hawks, Wizards guard John Wall said he did not experience any setbacks on his injured wrist, reports The Washington Post.

“[It] felt perfectly fine," he said after the game.

Wall was considered a game-time decision Wednesday because of fractures in his left hand and wrist, but he expects to play in Game 6 on Friday.

"Just doing the same thing I've been doing if I played or didn't play," Wall said. "A lot of treatment, getting a lot of rest, spending time watching film and getting treatment as much as possible and making myself available for Friday."

Wall finished Wednesday's game with 15 points on 7-of-15 shooting along with seven assists, which impressed coach Randy Wittman.

"I thought he was great considering everything," Wittman said. "I don't think he played tentatively at all."

Wall was considered a gametime decision heading into pregame warmups, which he completed without protective padding on his injured wrist. He attempted a full range of shots during the session and was announced soon after to be available to play Wednesday.

Coach Randy Wittman said before Wall warmed up that he wouldn't be on a minutes restriction if he played, so Wall should be expected to see his regular role if he doesn't reinjure the wrist.

Wall will be seeing his first action since fracturing his wrist in Game 1. The Wizards are 7 1/2-point favorites in Atlanta Wednesday.

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Wall will be further evaluated before determining his official playing status for Wednesday's Game 5 matchup at Atlanta.

"When they check him again," coach Randy Wittman said. "I'm sure they're either going to say 'No, we need more time' or 'It's up to you' from a pain standpoint."

Wall is dealing with a fractured left hand and wrist and he was also able to do some shooting with his right hand Tuesday.

"The swelling is minimal now," Wittman said. "It's still a little but nothing where it was. Like we talked about, the doctors wanted to reassess things after that. What he's doing now is fine according to them."

Wizards PG John Wall virtually certain no-go for Monday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2015) Wizards All-Star point guard John Wall remains doubtful to play Monday in Game 4 of their second-round series against visiting Atlanta.

He had not even tried dribbling Sunday due to the swelling in a left hand and wrist that has sustained five non-displaced fractures.

"It's headed in the right direction," Randy Wittman told the Washington Post. "We're not to the point of him doing anything on the floor yet of that nature. But it's heading to a situation where hopefully he can get a ball in his hand and see how that feels."

It remains to be seen when Wall can return to the court. Reports have indicated that he could miss the entire postseason.


Wizards G John Wall gets treatment on wrist


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Report: Wizards' John Wall unlikely to return in postseason


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/10/2015) Wizards guard John Wall appears unlikely to play again during the postseason due to nondisplaced fractures in his wrist and hand, ESPN reports, per the Washington Post.

"Guys, I spoke with a Wizards executive earlier today, and while it’s not official, I was given the impression that it’s highly unlikely John Wall returns for this series, or even the postseason," ESPN's Chris Broussard said before Saturday's game. "They told me they are looking 10 years down the road, not the next game, not even the next series. If there’s any chance of him further injuring himself, they will hold him out."

Coach Randy Wittman had a similar take on the approach to the injury Wall sustained in Game 1.

"We’re not going to put the kid at risk," Wittman said. "That won’t happen, I guarantee you that. If the doctor says there is a risk at hurting him worse, he’s not playing. I won’t let that happen."

Wall indicated that the decision on whether he'll play rests on him if the pain is alleviated.

"If the pain goes away and I can dribble and do those things again, then it’s all up to me," Wall said. Given "how competitive I am, if I am able to do those things and dribble and do what I want to do and be myself, then there’s a great [chance] that I will play. But if I can’t be myself, [there’s] no point in going out there."

The Wizards pulled off a win at the last minute Saturday to take a 2-1 series lead over the Hawks.

The Wizards are 3 1/2-point home underdogs Saturday.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2015) Wizards guard John Wall told reporters he's dealing with a "really bad sprain" in his wrist, which has given him trouble dribbling the ball the way he is accustomed to, per the team's official website.

Wall's injury stemmed from a nasty fall in Game 1 against Atlanta. He consulted with team doctors and opted to sit out Game 2. In his absence, Ramon Sessions got the start and scored a playoff career-high 21 points, but it wasn't enough as Washington dropped Game 2, 106-90.

According to David Aldridge of TNT and NBA.com, Wall reiterated that his wrist isn't broken, and that he is expected to get another opinion back in Washington before the team determines a course of treatment.

(5/5/2015) Despite dealing with a wrist and ankle injury, Wizards guards John Wall and Bradley Beal are expected to play in Game 2 on Tuesday at Atlanta, reports ESPN.com.

"I'm all right," Wall said. "My hand hurts. Swollen, but other than that, I am fine."

Wall landed on his wrist in Game 1 and initially feared he may have broken it.

"I broke my wrist before, but it is kind of the same type of injury, because I put my hands down first and the wrist can snap or the hand can break," Wall said. "We will get the swelling down before [Tuesday's] game. I did a lot of treatment [Sunday] night and tried to get it as best as we can get it before the game [Tuesday]."

Meanwhile, Beal suffered a sprained ankle during the Game 1 win, but he said treatment has improved the injury.

"I should be good [Tuesday]," Beal said. "I've sprained this ankle 30 times. The swelling has never gone away. [But] it wasn't that bad. Actually, I got to thank my trainers because I feel a lot better [Monday] than I did [Sunday]."

Wizards Wall, Beal ready to fight through injuries for Game 2


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/3/2015) The Wizards grabbed Game 1 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Atlanta Hawks despite guards John Wall and Bradley Beal both suffering what first appeared to be scary injuries during the contest. However, per The Washington Post, both players say they will be ready for Game 2 on Tuesday. 

Wall injured his wrist and hand after falling to the floor after a layup attempt. He returned quickly to the game, but did grab it several times. 

"If it's not broken, I'll play through anything," Wall said.

Beal's injury is a little more tricky. After turning his ankle on the follow through of a jump shot, the guard seemed in intense pain. Beal has a history of leg injuries, so he was a little more cautious about his status. 

"Even if I'm not a threat, I can still be a decoy," Beal said.
