After a tough Game 5 loss on the road, John Wall at first played it safe in his comments to the media, saying he likely was a game-time decision for Game 6 on Friday.
But later in his postgame press conference, he said his hand was fine and sounded like a guy who was not going to sit out Game 6.
Wall also said he did take a few hits to the hand but played through it. He admitted there is a risk of falling and turning this non-displaced fracture into a more serious displaced one, but he wanted to be out there.
Wall had 15 points on 7-of-16 shooting. When he attacked and got inside he still finished very well, but he was 1-of-8 beyond 16 feet, his jump shot was not threatening.
