Five non-displaced fractures to his left wrist have sidelined Wizards Point Guard John Wall. As such, the outlook isn’t good for the Wizards this postseason. At least right now. But that doesn’t rule them out. The games must still be played. The series against the Hawks must be finished.
For those of you without a medical background, I Googled exactly what the hell a non-displaced fracture is. It’s a little break in a bone a hairline fracture if you will. In this instance, John Walls left wrist has five of these little son-of-a’s. So he’s not likely to come back to the starting lineup.
I must say it’s a somber mood around D.C. for the Wizards. Wizards Small Forward Paul Pierce isn’t giving up as he said the team has to keep playing and remain competitive. I agree with Pierce.
So, here are five easy breaks the Wizards need to go their way.
1. Bradley Beal
He has to remain hot, protect his ankle, and take his game to the next level. So in short, Beal has to get red-hot and put this team on his shoulders to get past the Hawks.
2. Marcin Gortat
You know that dramatic moment in a movie, when the protagonist is knocked cold by the bad guy and the little child is tugging on their arm trying to wake up in time to save the day? Yeah, that. Marcin, if you’re reading…WAKE UP!!!!
Whatever it takes for Marcin…make it a double for Nene. Come on boys you have to “level up” right now and whip it into beast-mode.
4. Otto Porter
I’ve said it before and I’ll keep saying it, the Wizards can be very potent if Otto Porter gets his shot lined up and crashes the glass. He’s sparked before in this postseason, now he has to catch fire.
Hey, God, are you there? It’s me. I know. I know, it’s a been a while, but here’s the deal. I’m not even a diehard Wizards fan and I’m coming to you for some help. The series is 1-1 and well, I know you don’t normally do this sort of thing, but the Wizards have been so bad for so long that they could really use the help. I mean you were an adviser on Angels in the Outfield movie and that was successful. Just think about it. I’m sure Ted Leonsis can get you a cushy seat in the owners box at the Verizon Center for Saturday’s game. I’ll buy you popcorn.
Till next time, hold the mayo between your knees and follow me @Deepdfspicks.
