As John Wall has cracked up his left hand and wrist, the Washington Wizards’ dream has been shattered for reaching the NBA Finals for the first time since 1979. Meanwhile, Paul Pierce had to put up a confident front, as he had to do that judging the situation.
On last Thursday, it has been revealed by the Wizards that John Wall has acquired 5 non-displaced fractures at his left hand as well as wrist.
Pierce said of Wall that such news is truly devastating, and it is even more painful as the team has played so well in the playoff rounds. However, the team has released an official statement, stating that the team is yet to decide the status of Wall for the forthcoming best of seven series, which has been expected to start from the next Saturday.
The news of this injury is like a deathblow to the team. It will take quite a few weeks to recover the non-displace fractures and even after recovering, Wall would not be able to hit the ground immediately. It would be a miracle if John Wall can come back to the ground within a period of 1-2 months.
Until Saturday, Wizards do not have any matches as per the schedule. The game 4 will resume on Monday. So, Wall is getting almost 1 week’s time after his injury. Not to mention that few fans are finding glimpses of hopes due to that.
Winning a playoff game without having the best player of the team is truly difficult. The Wizards has to play against the Hawks, which is a team that certainly looks beatable. The match is surely going to be exciting.
Confidence seeped from the words of Pierce though! He stated that by no means, his team considers the series is over. He assured the fans that the team will give its best at any possible situations.
