John Wall Suffers Foot Sprain, Is Day-To-Day

New, 1 comment

Whenever John Wall suffers an injury, it's natural to freak out. That's exactly what happened in the second half of the Washington Wizards' loss to the Chicago Bulls on Saturday night. Wall fell back into Yi Jianlian, and while the Chinese forward emerged more battered from the exchange, it also hurt Wall's foot.

Wall ended up coming back in the game, but clearly wasn't himself. Today, he missed practice to see a foot doctor, and there's a chance he won't play against the Raptors tomorrow. Via Michael Lee of the Washington Post:

John Wall (left foot sprain) visited with a doctor on Mon. & did not practice. Flip says he's day2day - but aren't we all.    

If Wall does play, he will start, because the Wizards would like to avoid violating the unwritten rule that an NBA team may not bring its face of the franchise off the bench. He will also be going up against an awful defensive team, so even if he's hurting a bit, he should excel.
