John Wall suffered a knee injury during the Wizards' 99-92 loss to the Bucks on Thursday after colliding with O.J. Mayo. He ultimately stayed in the game to score 15 points and dish 10 assists.

After the game, Wall stated that he was unsure on whether he would play in the All-Star Game on Sunday due to the injury, according to Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post.

Wall has several nagging injuries, so it may not be a bad thing for him to sit this out. The Wizards' next game is on Thursday at home against the Utah Jazz.
