INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — All-Star guard John Wall will miss the Washington Wizards' game Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time) at Indiana with bone spurs in his left heel.
Coach Scott Brooks has not said how much more time, if any, Wall might miss. He will be replaced in the lineup by Austin Rivers.
Wall sat out Wednesday's (Thursday, PHL time) victory at Atlanta, returned to action in Saturday's (Sunday, PHL time) loss at Cleveland and scored one point — a career low. He is averaging 20.4 points and 8.3 assists.
Brooks says Wall felt better Monday (Tuesday, PHL time) than he did Sunday (Monday, PHL time) and that the Wizards still have a "few more days" before making "the next decision."
The Wizards are on the final stop of a four-game trip and return home to face Boston on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time).
