John Wall doesn't think shoulder injury is serious, expects to play vs. Spurs

The Wizards definitely got a scare when John Wall left Friday's game against the Memphis Grizzlies with a left shoulder injury. However, Wall eventually returned for the second half and played through it, though he did sit out a long portion of the fourth quarter.

After the game, Wall confirmed that he still plans on playing Saturday against the Spurs.

"I hope so," Wall said, via WashingtonWizards.com. "If it's just sore, I'll play tomorrow. If something comes up where it's injured, I won't, but I think everything's fine. I just have to make sure I keep icing it and keep an eye on it."

Wall described the injury as a "stinger," but said that "nothing was out of place" when the Wizards' trainers looked at it. He admitted that he was playing through some pain during the second half, but he didn't think it was too difficult.

"When I got it moving, it kind of loosened up," he said.
