Wizards’ Wall to get second opinion on knee

John Wall says it's time for the Wizards to live up to their own expectations this season.

Washington Wizards point guard John Wall is dealing with a sore left knee and will not play Saturday night against the Atlanta Hawks, per head coach Scott Brooks.

Brooks told reporters after the Wizards’ shootaround that Wall has been feeling discomfort in his knee during the team’s current road trip and the ailment is impacting the All-Star’s play on the court.

Wall, who had surgery on both knees in the summer of 2016, plans to go to Cleveland next week and visit the doctor who performed the operations.

“Our doctors here have been doing a great job,” Wall said. “But there’s nothing wrong with getting a second opinion.”

On the season, Wall is averaging 19.4 points and 9.3 assists while shooting 41.8 percent from the field and 35.8 percent from three.

The Wizards are currently 26-22 on the season.
