To the surprise of no one, Washington Wizards point guard John Wall will be absent from the lineup when the team takes on the Atlanta Hawks in Game 4 on Monday evening.

Wall missed both Games 2 and 3 as a result of non-displaced fractures in his hand and wrist, and while the All-Star point guard was listed as a "game-time decision" for Monday evening, he was never considered likely to appear. The Wizards claimed Game 3 in their home building on the strength of a Paul Pierce buzzer-beater, and Wall's replacement, Ramon Sessions, made only two of his ten field goal attempts with six assists and three turnovers in 35 minutes.

The Hawks will deploy a full lineup for Monday's game, with Paul Millsap rejoining the starting lineup after a bout with flu-like symptoms.
