WASHINGTON (AP) — Washington Wizards All-Star point guard John Wall says he does not need surgery for the fractures in his left hand and wrist that kept him out of three playoff games.

Wall says Monday that he will head to Cleveland this week or next to see a specialist about the injury and find out what he needs to do to heal properly.

He was hurt during Game 1 of Washington's second-round series against the Atlanta Hawks and sat out Games 2, 3, 4, then returned for Games 5 and 6. The Hawks took the final three games of the series to win it 4-2.

Wall says his hand "was very sore" when he returned to action, but "I wasn't complaining about guys hitting it; I knew it was going to happen."
