John Wall Injury: Tendonitis Not The Cause Of Wall's Pain

While it was originally believed John Wall had missed 10 games this season due to tendonitis, the Wizards rookie point guard is actually experiencing pain in right knee due to a bone bruise below the knee.

According to Michael Lee:

John Wall revealed today that a bone bruise below his right knee – & not tendinitis – is the source of his pain. He could be out for a while

With Wall sidelined for the time being, the Wizards will continue to use Kirk Hinrich at the point. Hinrich will have Rashard Lewis and Josh Howard back at his disposal, but without Wall it has to be frustrating for a franchise looking to take the next step with their rookie star at the helm.
