It’s a tough day to be the head coach of the Washington Wizards, who just lost their superstar point guard to a broken wrist smack dab in the middle of a playoff run. So it’s not exactly surprising that Randy Wittman had himself a lil’ meltdown during this morning’s media session.
Wittman was ticked off about a portion of Michael Lee’s recent Washington Post column, which Wittman claims is completely false:
Wall refused to accept the initial diagnosis of a “real, real bad sprain” after X-rays immediately following the game were negative. According to a person with knowledge of the situation, Wall clashed with team medical staffers before sitting out Tuesday because he felt something more serious had caused his hand to explode. After a few days of confusion and concern, Wall got the confirmation of bone fractures that he never really wanted, leaving fans of the team with broken hearts.
Don’t worry, Randy. This will all be over soon.
