John Wall out, Markieff Morris doubtful for Wizards vs. Bulls
We know for sure that John Wall won’t play in this contest. The 28-year-old guard is out due to a heel injury which has been bothering him all season. Tomas Satoransky will start in his place.
Washington, however, could also be without Markieff Morris. The Wizards have listed him as doubtful because of neck stiffness.

The Wizards are 13-22 on the season, 11th place in the Eastern Conference standings. They are coming off a 106-95 road loss to the Detroit Pistons.
In 32 games this year, John Wall is averaging 20.7 points, 3.6 rebounds and 8.7 assists. The five-time All-Star is shooting 44.4 percent from the field, 30.2 percent from beyond the arc and 69.7 percent from the free-throw line.
Wall has 10 double-doubles on the season, but the team is just 11-21 when he plays.
Morris, entering the final year of his contract with the Wizards, is putting up 11.5 points, 5.1 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 34 games. The eight-year veteran is shooting 43.6 percent overall and 33.3 percent from the 3-point line.
Washington has been one of the most disappointing teams this season and the injuries haven’t helped at all.
