-- Sidelined for the past three games with fractures in his left wrist and hand, point guard John Wall is active and will return to the Washington Wizards for Game 5 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series against the Atlanta Hawks, according to reports.
After showing no apparent problems during pregame warm-ups, the Wizards announced that Wall would be active for the game. Coach Randy Wittman said Wall would not dress unless he was going to play.
Asked how he was feeling as he walked off the court, Wall said, "Good."
The All-Star's status was previously unclear after he practiced dribbling for the second straight day.
Wall suffered five non-displaced fractures in the wrist in a Game 1 win over the Hawks. The Wizards have alternated wins and losses since, going 1-2 without Wall.
Wall said earlier Wednesday he planned to again test his wrist and hand and consult with team doctors before Wednesday night's game.
"See how I can make moves with the dribble," he said. "That's the key, being able to make moves that I feel comfortable with, that I'm used to making."
Wittman said Wall did nothing significantly different than in Tuesday's practice.
"Just the stuff that he did yesterday," Wittman said. "We'll see where he is."
