Wall there for the finish

The Wizards' Nene Hilario gets stripped by Paul Millsap in the lane, but John Wall is there to clean it up.


Kevin Pelton @kpelton

Drew Gooden isn't going to play the end of the game, so what does it matter if he's in foul trouble?

Michael Wallace @WallaceNBA_ESPN

Mike Conley won't play in Game 1 against Warriors. He's not even a week removed from serious facial/eye surgery. Seems like best move.

Wizards were -3 in the first half with Paul Pierce at PF. -5 with Wall/Beal/Porter/Pierce.

Wall is up and now on the bench. Looks like they are looking at his left wrist area. He already was dealing with an ailing right shoulder
