Atlanta Hawks take Game 2 with no John Wall on the court
Wednesday May 6th, 2015

Washington Wizards point guard John Wall will seek a second opinion on his sprained left wrist later this week to determine his availability for the rest of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Atlanta Hawks, reports TNT’s David Aldridge.

According to the report, Wall said that his wrist is not fractured and he will consult with a second physician when the team returns to Washington so that he can decide what to do moving forward.

Wall was injured in the second quarter of Game 1 after he fell attempting a layup. He did not play in Tuesday’s 106-90 Game 2 loss.

After consulting with team doctors, Wall decided not to play in Game 2 after being dissatisfied with the way he wasn't able to control the ball while he was dribbling.

Ramon Sessions started the game in his place and scored a team-high 21 points in 40 minutes.
