John Wall Will Miss Wizards-Raptors Due To His Shoulder Injury

Bradley Beal, John Wall confident of Wizards' status among top in East

Wall deserved competitive kudos for playing on but finished with his worst shooting night of season (4 of 13 overall with seven missed free throws) and scored his lowest total (13 points).

In February, James banked home the game-tying three point shot in the closing seconds of regulation and Cleveland went on to beat Washington 140-135 in overtime in a contest that some considered to be the league's 2016-17 regular-season game of the year.

Wall suffered the injury during Friday's loss to the Cavaliers, but the official diagnosis is just a sprain, so he shouldn't be in line for an extended absence.

The under has been a good play in recent meetings between these two teams and that should be the case here. When Wall's shot does not fall, he contribute by sharing the ball. That team would definitely win the East. "The guy was on fire".

Jodie Meeks, Mike Scott, and Kelly Oubre have all been great bench players for the Wizards.

The Wizards (4-4) have lost four of their past five games.

Going toe-to-toe with the then defending National Basketball Association champions helped elevate optimism on the Wizards. "That's just the way I feel", Beal said on The Jump.

James, who is in his 15th National Basketball Association season, finished just four points shy of his career-high 61 set in 2014 against the Charlotte Bobcats.

James played like he was someone who watched the interview intently. On top of that, he also reached 800 starts with at least 10 points, which is second all-time behind Michael Jordan (866).

"I really don't have a comment about it", James said when asked Wall and Beal's claim. "I've got confidence in myself and my teammates and what we can bring to our team and what we can accomplish".

Cavaliers Tyronn Lue said sarcastically: "No comment, because I don't want to get in trouble".

"It's going to be basically me and Brad leading, not even offensively - we can do that", Wall said.

The Wizards didn't help their cause pre game as they essentially lit the fuse that is the rocket ship known as Lebron making outlandish statements about being the best in the East and how they felt like the Cavs intentionally dodged them previous year in the playoffs. He also took the challenge of defending the much taller and heavier James often during the fourth quarter. "That's why he's the player he is".
