Washington Wizards point guard John Wall suffered a wrist injury in Game 1, but he was able to continue playing as the Wizards opened their series with a win.
However, he sat out of Game 2 as the Wizards lost to the Atlanta Hawks, who evened the series.
Wall has since been discovered to have fractured his wrist after landing hard on it in the series opener, and he has also been diagnosed with a hand injury.
He has five non-displaced fractures on the left side of those areas, and his playing status for the rest of the series has yet to be confirmed.
The Wizards would sorely miss Wall though since he is a vital part of their offense, as he averaged 17.4 points and 12.6 assists per game.
They still have a reliable shooting guard in Bradley Beal and a solid rebounder in center Marcin Gortat.
The impact of Wall is undeniable though, and his absence may ultimately cost the Wizards a chance to make the Eastern Conference Finals.
