Every NBA team has one player that they can’t play without.

Take the Washington Wizards.

The one player they can ill-afford to lose for any length of time is point guard John Wall.

The 24-year-old, 2-time All-Star is out indefinitely as his team is in a 1-1 dogfight with the Atlanta Hawks in the NBA’s other Eastern Conference semifinal matchup.

Wall has five nondisplaced fractures in his left wrist and hand.

The University of Kentucky product was hurt in Game 1 against the Hawks.

Game 3 is on Sunday at Washington and head coach Randy Wittman says the team is prepared to go ahead without Wall.

Washington misses much without the 6’4, 195-pounder.¬†Wall is known for his blazing speed and explosive athleticism.¬†Along with his ability to get to the rim using his speed, Wall also has a tremendous ability to pass the ball.

Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin was named the Rookie of the Year on Wednesday after a landslide vote, becoming the NBA’s first unanimous choice for the award in 21 years.

Griffin received every first-place vote from all 118 media members, easily beating Washington Wizards point guard John Wall.

The 6-foot-10-inch former Oklahoma star is the first to win the award unanimously since David Robinson of the San Antonio Spurs in 1990, and just the third unanimous selection in NBA history since Ralph Sampson in 1984.

Griffin’s season one one to remember, as he led all rookies in scoring, finishing 12th in the league at 22.5 and rebounding, finishing 4th in the league at 12.1. He played all 82 games for the Clippers, won the NBA’s slam dunk contest and was the NBA’s first rookie All-Star since Yao Ming in 2003.
