John Wall injury: Wizards star leaves game with shoulder injury

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Wizards point guard John Wall left the game with what appeared to be a serious shoulder injury, but he returned and played through it.

Washington Wizards point guard John Wall went down with an injury in the second quarter of Washington's match up against the Memphis Grizzlies. Wall drove to the basket and went down with what appeared to be a shoulder injury. The severity of the injury is not yet known, but this would obviusly be a crushing blow to the Wizards.

Wall was attempting a scoop shot when he was hit hard by both Zach Randolph and Jerryd Bayless. Wall remained on the floor while the play moved to the other end of the court. Wall eventually left the game with the help of a Wizards trainer, with a very pained expression on his face.

Washington struggled without Wall most of the season, but had just recently started to look better with Wall back in the line up.

We'll provide updates as they are known, but based on Wall's reaction Wizards fans are already fearing the worst.

Update:

Update: In a very quick turn of events, Wall has returned to the game to start the third quarter. Good news for Wizards fans.
