Injury updates on Wizards' John Wall and Lakers' Larry Nance Jr

Washington Wizards point guard John Wall (shoulder) will not play on Sunday versus the Toronto Raptors.

A Cavs club that had lost its four preceding games by a total of 64 points, the worst such stretch James has experienced since he was a rookie, broke out against a Wizards club that keeps insisting it is ready to reach the East finals for the first time in four decades. However, the Cavaliers fared better from the field, making 56 percent of their attempts.

"I think they understand what we can bring to the table".

"I don't want to give myself a ceiling". I'm nearly back to my wind.

Bradley Beal scored 36 points for Washington.

Ahead of Friday night's matchup against the struggling Cavs, both John Wall and Bradley Beal were confident.

Otto Porter Jr.'s lack of assertiveness on the offensive end, Wall's shooting woes and shoulder injury, and the lack of depth at the point guard position all contributed to the Wizards tough loss.

"I shouldn't have been out there".

Brook Lopez torched his former team for six 3-pointers and a season-high 34 points to lead the Lakers to a 124-112 win over the Nets.

But I think they didn't want to see us, period, because we would have seen them in the second round.

Jodie Meeks, Mike Scott, and Kelly Oubre have all been great bench players for the Wizards.

Going toe-to-toe with the then defending National Basketball Association champions helped elevate optimism on the Wizards.

Wall and Beal told reporters earlier on Friday that they believe Cleveland purposefully dropped out of the top seed in the playoffs last season to avoid facing Washington in the early rounds.

James played like he was someone who watched the interview intently. Also, Wall has scored in double figures in every game in Washington's torrid offense that scores 113.5 points per game, third highest in the league. In the first quarter alone Rose scored 9 points on 4-for-5 shooting and scored in a variety of ways. Washington trailed 104-93 through three quarters. "I always said that".

"I don't have a comment about that", James said.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue offered a sarcastic response to the comments following the Cavs' win: "They're right: They are the best team in the East".

"It's on fire right now", Wall said of the injury. "That's why he's the player he is".
