The Wizards would have enough trouble beating the Heat on Monday even if they had a fully healthy roster. But according to Chris Miller, they won't have that luxury, as John Wall will miss his sixth game of the season with a bruised right knee.
John Wall will likely miss his 6th game tonight vs. Heat (right knee bruise) Didn't practice Sunday or take part in morning shoot around.
Along with the sprained foot, this knee bruise is the second injury that has forced Wall to the sideline early in the season. Wall has made it known in the past that he is friends with LeBron and actually seeks him out for advice, so it must be killing him that he is going to miss their first matchup as professionals. But as I've said in the past, there is no use in rushing Wall back before he is ready for a game in November. Let him sit out against the Heat to make sure the knee is completely healed before he hits the court again.
