Wizards' John Wall sits out loss to Bulls due to heel injury

WASHINGTON -- John Wall missed the Washington Wizards' 101-92 loss to Chicago on Friday night due to a left heel injury, and coach Scott Brooks said the point guard will see a specialist.

Brooks would not speculate on the severity of the injury. He says Wall has managed an issue with his heel for years and "it comes and goes."

Wall is averaging 20.7 points and 8.7 assists per game. He missed a game with an injury to his heel on Dec. 10.

Tomas Satoransky started in place of Wall and had nine points while going 4-for-11 from the floor.

Otto Porter missed his ninth consecutive game with a bruised right knee. Brooks said he is improving and nearing a return. Forward Markieff Morris was also out due to a neck injury.
