With Wizards star guard John Wall possibly out with five non-displaced fractures in his hand, the team is feeling some pressure. Ray Lewis reportedly came by for a pep talk this week, players have promised to step up if Wall has to sit (though no decision has been announced yet.) But if Friday’s media time revealed anything it might be that Randy Wittman has had enough of the injury talk. The Wizards coach called out a Washington Post report that Wall had clashed with the team’s medical staff, calling it inaccurate. When the reporter tried to follow up with a question (which seems like a fair thing to do if a coach calls you out publicly), Wittman emphatically decided it was time to move on. For The Win

Bradley Beal started Game 1 against the Toronto Raptors nearly reduced to tears by an inspiring pregame speech from Washington Wizards coach Randy Wittman. "I almost cried," Beal said.

In a three-point game, as last night was coming down the stretch, it’s magnified.” Washington Post
