The Memphis Grizzlies won an ugly one against the Washington Wizards in a game where John Wall injured his shoulder, then returned to the game.

This is obviously a huge sigh of relief, as it initially looked like Wall might have separated his shoulder on the play. One has to hope that Wall doesn't reaggravate the injury running through a screen or driving to the basket, but assuming that doesn't happen, it looks like the Wizards have dodged a major, major bullet.
Wall's first couple of possessions indicated that he wasn't hurt too badly. He hit a jump shot on the Wizards' first play, then absorbed a bump from Mike Conley in transition without being hurt.

UPDATE: Well, that changed quickly. It looks like Tayshaun Prince, Ed Davis and Austin Daye will actually be in uniform tonight.
Just alerted the Prince, Davis, and Daye will be available and in uniform tonight— Chris Vernon (@ChrisVernonShow) February 1, 2013
Hearing [Tayshaun] Prince, [Ed] Davis, and [Austin] Daye are unlikely to be available tonight. — Chris Herrington (@FlyerGrizBlog) February 1, 2013 One issue slowing this down: new Pistons guard Jose Calderon, acquired in the three-team deal, is having issues getting the proper visa after having been dealt from a Canadian team to an American team.
The three new Grizzlies also did not play in Memphis' 106-89 loss to Oklahoma City on Thursday.

"He's day-to-day. We'll have to see how it progresses," Coach Randy Wittman said of Beal.
Beal, who had been struggling since a hard fall in Denver on Jan. 18, will likely miss the next two road games against Memphis on Friday and San Antonio on Saturday. He averaged just 8.8 points while shooting 35.7 percent from the floor (20 of 56) and 30 percent (6 of 20) from beyond the three-point line since the injury.
The timing couldn't be more inconvenient for the Wizards. The team has struggled to score all season, especially when Beal has been out of the line up or suffering through shooting slumps. Beal's backup, Jordan Crawford, has struggled to adjust to a new role since John Wall returned and could be more aggressive than normal if he's given additional minutes.

Were the Wizards right to avoid trading for Rudy Gay? Probably. But if you were trying to make the case that Gay would have been a smart acquisition, it would have looked something like this.
