In losing at home to the Miami Heat on Friday, the Washington Wizards simply got outworked in a first half that saw them trailing by as many as 25 points. It didn't help that John Wall was dealing with a sore left knee. Wall shot 3-for-12, scoring a season-low eight points.

Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reports that the knee could hold Wall out of the Wizards' important matchup with the Toronto Raptors on Sunday (3:30 p.m. ET, League Pass).

For the second time this month, John Wall's playing status is in doubt as a sore left knee could keep him out for the Washington Wizards' game Sunday against the Toronto Raptors.

Wall, who has been limited with swelling in the knee, is "questionable" to play at Air Canada Centre against the Raptors (10-5), according to a person familiar with the situation. On Friday night, Wall revealed the extent of his ailment following the Wizards' 91-88 loss to the Miami Heat, telling reporters that fluid in his knee has caused swelling and affected his play.

Wall did not score through the first three quarters and finished with eight points on 3-of-12 shooting and eight assists — his worst statistical performance through 14 games.

"It was holding me back," Wall said of his knee on Friday night.

Miami powered past Washington on Friday night.
