Wizards' John Wall held out of practice with back spasms


The Washington Wizards point guard John Wall sat out of the team’s practice on Saturday due to back spasms. According to Sports Illustrated,

The spasms started in the third quarter, and Wall could be seen getting his back stretched out by trainers in the fourth quarter, though head coach Randy Wittman was not aware of the injury until after the game, according to the Washington Post‘s Michael Lee.

He was still in “excruciating pain” and could “barely stand” in the locker room after the game, wrote CSNWashington.com’s J. Michael.

The 0-2 Wizards could really use Wall back as soon as possible, especially as the team will play the Miami Heat on Sunday night.

J. Michael of CSNWashington.com said,

John Wall, who led his team with 26 points on 10-for-19 shooting, six assists and three steals in a 109-102 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers, could barely stand because of his lower back.

Spasms started in the third quarter and he was in excruciating pain in the locker room.

“Yes,” Wall responded when asked if it’s the first time he has had this back issue. “And it hurts badly right now.”
