Report: Wizards' John Wall, Bradley Beal to play through injury tonight

BY foxsports • May 5, 2015

There's just no stopping these Washington Wizards. They've won five playoff games in a row, they've turned into a road juggernaut, and even injuries don't seem to be a problem for their stars.

John Wall (wrist) and Bradley Beal (ankle) had vowed yesterday that they would play through their ailments for the Wizards in Game 2, and Washington's star backcourt is reportedly good to go tonight.

One thing to watch: The Wizards did an outstanding job of limiting Atlanta's shooters in the second half of Game 1, and they did it by limiting their rotations and switching fairly regularly. If Beal's ankle hampers his mobility, look for Washington to increase its switching even further, which could leave the Hawks open for jumpers if those switches are just a beat late.
