John Wall to miss fifth game

By Gene Wang

Washington Wizards rookie point guard John Wall is out for tonight's game against Orlando with a bruised right knee, marking the fifth time he'll be unavailable this season because of injury.

This latest setback, which Wall suffered in a 116-114 overtime win against Philadelphia on Monday, comes just after the No. 1 overall pick returned to the lineup after missing four games because of a sprained left foot. That injury happened against Chicago on Nov. 13.

Wall attended practice yesterday afternoon, but he did little else other than stretching and riding the exercise bicycle. He received treatment later that afternoon and was undergoing more of the same earlier today, prompting Coach Flip Saunders to make him a game-time decision.

Wall leads the Wizards in scoring (18), assists (9.1) and steals (2.8), although he's coming off what Saunders called his worst game as a professional in Thursday's 116-96 loss in Atlanta. Wall finished with 10 points but missed 9 of 12 shots and had seven assists with three turnovers.

Gee also gets the start at the 3. For those of you who want Gil gone, maybe this can be the showcase game for the team who is the top destination for him.

Hmmmm, Gee gets the start. Sorry Nick, I guess you're not ready for prime time? Meanwhile, Cartier, rent, don't buy.

Orlando is about $2 Mil under the cap. Do you really think they'll ruin that by making a trade for Gil? They really don't have the pieces to put that trade together unless they pass off V Carter and Ernie will definetly meet his demise if he pulls off such a stupid trade.

Kevine' Seraphin playing really well. Got got the right idea with the screens and his muscle has made a difference defending D Howard.
