Just when you thought “maybe these Wizards are turning the corner,” having won three straight and going up against the lowly Cavaliers next…
Then John Wall scored one point on 0-of-5 shooting, moved gingerly around the court, got torched by rookie Collin Sexton, and Cleveland easily handled Washington 116-101. After the game Wall explained that he is injured with a bone spur in his heel and probably shouldn’t have played.
The Wizards are now 11-15 on the season and would be out of the playoffs if they started today (but because the bottom of the East is so sad, they are only a game out of the eight seed).
Is Wall going to miss some time with this bone spur? One would think so, but players never want to sit and Wall would not concede he needs time off.
