This is not good for the Wizards. On a night when a lot of things went wrong for the team.

John Wall suffered a sprained left shoulder in a third quarter collision Friday night against Cleveland and left the arena with his arm in a sling. From NBC Sports Washington:

“It’s on fire right now,” Wall said after leaving the X-ray room with his left arm in a sling. “Usually I can get up off the ground, but I couldn’t get off the ground. My arm went dead….

“I shouldn’t have been out there, but I was trying to compete. I told them to just give me some [pain medication] and try to play through it,” he said.

Wall was 0-of-1 in the fourth quarter and had a limited impact.

Wall had X-rays taken but did not have the results Friday night. The smart money is on him sitting out Sunday against Toronto, but he was out on the court and likely will not miss much time (if any). That’s good news for the Wizards, who are -11.4 points per 100 possessions when Wall sits this season.
