According to police, John Wall was kicked off a Las Vegas flight on Tuesday after one of his friends got into a verbal fight with another passenger.
The airline didn't go into many details, but it doesn't sound like Wall will be in any kind of trouble. There were no charges or arrests, and neither the Wizards nor Wall plan on commenting. We will let you know if any new details emerge. Wall is still expected to see a hand specialist soon, so we should have a medical update on the All-Star point guard shortly. May 30 - 9:26 AM

John Wall (hand) said he doesn't need surgery and will see a hand specialist this week or next.

Wall said he plans to see hand specialist Thomas Graham at the Cleveland Clinic within the next week or so, but added that surgery isn't necessary. "I’m still just doing a normal treatment routine I was doing, like I was playing," Wall said. "Just consists of a lot of treatment and trying to keep the swelling down and letting the bone heal on its own." We'll update Wall's status after he meets with Graham, but it sounds like he should be ready for training camp barring any bad news at his visit.

John Wall (wrist) will see a specialist this week to determine if he'll need surgery, but Wall doesn't expect to need a procedure.

If Wall does need to go under the knife for his five non-displaced fractures in his left hand and wrist, it's not clear what his timetable to return might look like. In any case, Wall's availability for next season shouldn't be in jeopardy. It doesn't sound like a scenario Wall is anticipating, but players are always optimistic when it comes to injuries. We'll see.

John Wall scored 20 points during a 94-91 loss to the Hawks on Friday night, adding six rebounds, 13 assists, two steals, one block and six turnovers.

He was just 7-of-21 from the field and missed an important free throw attempt late in this game. Wall's broken left hand didn't seem to be an issue for him tonight and he was very active on the defensive end. He is still just 24 years old and handed out 10.0 assists per game during the regular season while improving as a scorer. The next step he'll need to make will be cutting down his turnovers. He'll be a first round target next season.

John Wall (wrist) will start against the Hawks on Friday night.

He doesn't have anything on his hand during warmups and maybe be plays in this game without the protective wrapping. Wall's left hand didn't seem to be much of an issue and coach Randy Wittman said he didn't notice Wall favoring anything. He'll be good to go.

John Wall (hand, wrist) said that he heard Dennis Schroder tell Kent Bazemore to hit him on his broken left hand during Game 5.

"Dennis Schroder told Kent Bazemore to smack [my left hand]," said Wall. "I was like, 'You come smack me.'" This is just some fuel to the fire for Wall, who is being listed as a game-time decision, although all indications are that he will play. Wall was not hesitant at all during Game 5, putting up 15 points with seven assists, while driving to the hoop aggressively and diving for loose balls. Washington will need everything they can get from their franchise-star if they hope to push the series back to Atlanta for a Game 7.
May 15 - 1:47 PM

John Wall (hand, wrist) said that he will play in Game 6 against the Hawks on Friday, however, Wizards' head coach Randy Wittman is saying that he will be a game-time decision.

Wall played 37 minutes during Game 5 without experiencing any setbacks, and Wittman said he anticipated Wall being able to play in Game 6 on Thursday, so it's interesting that he's suddenly considering him a game-time call. Wall added that he had a CT scan to sure the bones in his hands didn't become displaced, and everything came back clean. All signs are pointing towards Wall suiting up for an elimination game in Washington, and the Wizards odds of coming away with a victory would greatly decrease if Wall were not on the floor. We'll get another update on Wall before Friday's tip, but owners can go ahead and plan on having him active.
May 15 - 12:11 PM

Wizards head coach Randy Wittman said that he anticipates John Wall (hand, wrist) to play in Game 6 on Friday.

"So far so good," Wittman said of Wall's status heading into Game 6. "After the game everything looked good in terms of no swelling. That was a good sign... Right now I'm anticipating he'll be able to play." Wall is scheduled to meet with the Wizards' team doctors later today, but things are trending in a positive direction. Considering he toughed it out through 37 minutes of action on Wednesday, there's no reason to think he won't be on the floor for a crucial elimination game in Washington on Friday. Ramon Sessions and Will Bynum won't be much of a factor at all with Wall active.
May 14 - 2:26 PM

Wizards head coach Randy Wittman said John Wall (wrist, hand) showed a lot of heart in Wednesday's Game 5 loss to the Hawks.

Despite playing through a broken hand, Wall was able to put up 15 points, four rebounds, seven assists, four steals, and two blocks in Wednesday's loss. "He played like John," Wittman said. "All-out." While Wall's injury should probably be season-ending, he said he felt fine after the loss and with the Wizards face an elimination game on Friday, it would be a surprise if he doesn't suit up.
May 14 - 1:20 PM

John Wall returned from a three-game absence due to his left wrist, broken hand injury on Wednesday and had 15 points, four rebounds, seven assists, four steals, two blocks and six turnovers in a tough loss to the Hawks.

Wall played really well and frazzled Jeff Teague, who watched the end of the game from the Hawks' bench. We're not going to blame the Wizards' loss on the presence of Wall, as he played very well and helped the Wizards a lot more than he hurt them, but it's no secret that the Wizards were doing just fine against Atlanta with Wall in street clothes. Consider Wall questionable for Game 6 on Friday in Washington, but given how well he played tonight, it would be very surprising if he doesn't play.
May 13 - 11:20 PM

John Wall (hand, wrist) will start on Wednesday in Game 5 at Atlanta.

He has five non-displaced fractures in his hand, but that's not going to keep him out of the lineup. Coach Randy Wittman said he wouldn't activate Wall and not use him, so he'll be out there tonight. He's nowhere near 100 percent and he probably won't be quite as aggressive with the ball because of any extra impact on his left hand could do further damage. Ramon Sessions will move back to the bench.
May 13 - 7:04 PM

John Wall (wrist) is going through warmups for Game 5 on Wednesday and remains a game-time decision.

He is taking shots with his broken and heavily-bandaged left hand. Wall is also doing some dribbling and had parts of his warmup session without his glove. Stay tuned.
May 13 - 6:57 PM

John Wall (wrist, hand) still has swelling in his hand for Wednesday's game and he remains a game-time decision.

"You don't risk today for tomorrow," coach Randy Wittman said. "I think he understands it." We should get the official word any minute now, but Wall is unlikely to play.
May 13 - 6:40 PM

John Wall (wrist) has been smacking his hand around to test his pain tolerance.

"If you’re not confident in your ability to do what you want to do," Wall said, "then there’s no point in playing." He's been dribbling for two days in a row, but he still doesn't sound anywhere close to being 100 percent. Wall's activity will be based on pain and he said he does have a high pain tolerance. Still, a fall while driving to the basket could lead to Wall having to brace himself with his left hand, so it's easier said than done. We'll have another update at around 5:30 EDT.
May 13 - 4:28 PM

John Wall (wrist) will be a game-time call vs. the Hawks on Wednesday.

The swelling has continued to subside in his wrist, but he is still dealing with some pain. Wall has still been able to work on his dribbling, but we should know more after he meets with a doctor later in the afternoon. If Wall is unable to play, Ramon Sessions will continue to start, while Bradley Beal and Otto Porter will continue to see increased roles on offense.
