WASHINGTON (AP) — Wizards point guard John Wall is expected to play in Game 4 against the Pacers on Sunday despite a scratch on his right eye.
Wall says Saturday he “could barely see” in the third quarter of Washington’s 85-63 loss to Indiana on Friday night. That gave the Pacers a 2-1 lead in their best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal.
He was poked in the eye on a drive to the basket early in the second half. Teammate Bradley Beal says Wall “said a few times it was bothering him and that he couldn’t really see.”
Wall had seven turnovers, six assists and 15 points Friday.
Wizards coach Randy Wittman says he thinks Wall will be fine Sunday.
Wall wore a contact lens Saturday with a solution on it to help the eye.
