John Wall Injury: Wall Ruled Out Of Game Against Sacramento Kings With Foot Injury

John Wall was pulled from the starting lineup at the last minute and later ruled out of the Washington Wizards' game against the Sacramento Kings due to a left foot sprain, according to the CSN broadcasters.

Wall was scheduled to start the game against the Kings, but was on the bench when the starting lineups were announced. He went to the bench to get re-taped, but the team couldn't figure out a way to tape his foot injury properly. He was then ruled as questionable and later ruled out. 

Wall reportedly sprained his ankle twice over the course of the game last night against the Los Angeles Lakers, according to Michael Lee of the Washington Post. It appears that this is a different injury, but clearly, the Wizards decided to be cautious on the second night of a back-to-back. He walked off the court gingerly in warmups tonight, according to Yahoo! Sports' Marc Spears.

Kirk Hinrich started in Wall's place. This is Wall's seventh missed game in 21 contests.
