Washington Wizards point guard John Wall confirmed this week that he is fully healed from the fractured wrist he suffered during the postseason, according to the Washington Post. The injury cost Wall three games during the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Atlanta Hawks, although he was able to return at the end of the series. "It's fine now; it’s perfect," Wall said. "I'm back working out, so I’m good." The 24-year-old did not require surgery on the wrist at any point and was able to play through pain in the playoffs without suffering further damage, so he is fully expected to be ready for the start of training camp. Wall had the best all-around season of his career so far in 2014-15, when he averaged 17.6 points in addition to setting career highs with 4.6 rebounds and 10.0 assists per game, and he should continue to develop into one of the top point guards in the league.

Wall (wrist) didn't require surgery this offseason on the fractured left wrist he suffered during the postseason, the Washington Post reports.

Coach Randy Wittman believes Wall is healthy since the injury that caused him to miss three games of the Eastern Conference Semifinals in May. Wall joined the team at minicamp practice prior to summer league festivities. He should be ready for training camp, and he'll attempt to build upon an impressive 2014-15 season, one in which he was one of two point guards to average at least 10.0 assists per game.

Wall (wrist) said Monday that he will not undergo surgery for the fractures in his left hand and wrist, Yahoo! Sports reports.

Wall missed Games 2, 3 and 4 of the Wizards' second-round series against the Hawks, but returned to play Games 5 and 6 while the wrist was still in the process of healing. The point guard admitted that he was "very sore" but he emerged from the series without any further damage. Considering Wall has five non-displaced fractures, it's certainly an encouraging sign that surgery won't be necessary. He'll likely still face several weeks of rehab, but it doesn't look to be anything that will impact his status for the start of training camp in the fall.
