The Associated Press is reporting that Washington Wizards point guard John Wall injured his groin during practice for next week’s Las Vegas Summer League.
“He’s got a little bit of tightness in his groin,” coach Flip Saunders said. “He kind of slipped on the court and kind of stretched out a little bit in the scrimmage last night so … we didn’t want to take any chances. We’ll see if he loosens up.”
Wall downplayed the seriousness of the injury.
“This is my first time sitting out like this,” he said. “I’m type of person who doesn’t want to sit out too long, but also in this type of situation, practice is important, Summer League is important. But it’s an injury that can be hurting you throughout the whole season so my coaches and training staff are doing a great job.”
Later, Wall posted on twitter: “Yes my groin is ok…just tweaked it a Lil bit.”
Wall will be this year’s Summer League headliner.
