Wall Says Resting Grizzlies Players ‘Disrespectful’

Updated

on

The Grizzlies, playing their 12th game in 19 nights, decided it was best to not only play without point guard Mike Conley, who sprained his ankle against the Boston Celtics Wednesday, but to also sit Zach Randolph, Tony Allen, and Marc Gasol simply to rest. Wizards point guard John Wall expressed contempt for the strategy after the Wizards’ 107-87 thrashing at Verizon Center.

“That’s how I see it,” Wall said when asked if the Grizzlies decision was disrespectful to Washington. “They sit them and I don’t know the reason why. I think we’re a team that’s on the rise and teams respect us now. I guess they don’t respect us and we went out there and played basketball the right way and tried to get a win no matter what.”
