Wizards PG John Wall has five fractures in wrist, hand
Thursday May 7th, 2015

Washington Wizards point guard John Wall has "five non-displaced fractures in his left wrist and hand," the team announced Thursday. His playing status is still undetermined.

Wall was injured during the second quarter of Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals Sunday, a 104-98 Washington win. He had 18 points, 13 assists and seven rebounds in 38 minutes.

Wall practiced on Tuesday but did not play in Game 2 that night, which the Wizards lost 106-90. Wall had told reporters Tuesday morning that he would play in Game 2, and Wizards coach Randy Wittman said less than two hours before tipoff that all of his players were available.

TNT's David Aldridge reported Wednesday that Wall would seek a second opinion on his injury.​

A non-displaced fracture is a crack in the bone where the bone remains in its normal alignment.

Ramon Sessions replaced Wall at point guard in Game 2 and led the Wizards with 21 points. Game 3 of the series against the Atlanta Hawks will be played Saturday in Washington.
