The wrap around John Wall’s injured left hand was smaller on Sunday than in previous days and the swelling is down, which is good news for the Wizards’ injured point guard.

“It’s heading in the right direction,” coach Randy Wittman said. “Again, we’re not to the point of him doing anything on the floor yet. But, it’s heading to a situation where hopefully he can get a ball in his hand, get the feeling, see how that feels, then, you know, you just take those steps like that.”

Wall did not undergo any additional examination since an MRI and CAT scan taken on May 6 showed five non-displaced fractures in his left wrist and hand. Wall did not play in Game 2, when he was a late scratch because of the injury, or in Game 3.

“There’s still some [swelling] in there,” Wittman said. “I think they’re waiting. That’s the No. 1 thing. Before we move anywhere else, before he does anything [on the practice court] or with a ball, he’s got to get that out of there. There’s no sense in trying to do anything with a ball while it’s swollen. So, he hasn’t been able to do that yet.”
