It's taken only seven games for John Wall to suffer an injury that will keep him out of action. Jeez, what's with the history of this town?
Okay, so it's not too serious, but Wall will apparently be out of action when the Wizards take on the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday night with a left foot sprain. Craig Stouffer of the Washington Examiner has the scoop.
Flip says both Wall, who walked in on crutches, and Yi won't play for #wizards tonight vs. Toronto. Arenas looks to get the start.
Le sigh. Wall suffered the foot injury when he fell into Yi during a play in the third quarter of the Wizards' loss to the Chicago Bulls on Saturday. He actually came back into the game in the fourth quarter, but the pain got progressively worse as the week went on. Wall was in a walking boot on Sunday, and he was on crutches during practice on Monday. It's probably a good idea to now sit him down until he is totally healthy.
Without Wall, Gilbert Arenas will get a chance to build on his 30-point performance against the Bulls. Toronto's porous defense is a good stage for that to happen.
