John Wall recovers after ice-cold start Wed
Wall went into halftime scoreless on 0-of-8 FGs and 0-of-2 FTs, but he was on a mission in the third and fourth quarters, helping Washington come back for an impressive home win. Wall also threw down a decisive dunk on a breakaway late in the fourth quarter, which you can enjoy via the link below.
John Wall scores 16 points in loss
He shot 4-of-10 from the field and 8-of-9 from the line, adding four rebounds, three steals and five turnovers in 34 minutes. Wall received treatment under his left knee and on the side of his thigh after the game, but he didn't sound concerned and said that he would be "alright." We'll look for an update after Tuesday's practice, but for now his owners should expect him to play vs. the Hawks on Wednesday.
John Wall scores 19 points in a loss
After some trendy talk of the Wizards competing for the No. 1 seed, they've won just one of their last four games. That has pushed them down to two games behind the Celtics for the No. 2 spot and the Celtics get the 76ers on Sunday. Some of that is on Wall because he has made just 38.5 percent from the field -- he's made just 20.6 percent on jumpers in those four games. The more he attacks, the better he is.
John Wall hands out career-high 20 assists
Wall's status for this game was initially up in the air due to a sprained left foot, but his owners can breathe easy because he was sensational tonight. He shot just 4-of-13 from the field in 34 minutes, but added one block and one steal with two turnovers. The Wizards do play again on Saturday vs. the Hornets on the road, but Wall's owners should expect him to play with his team fighting for playoff seeding.
John Wall (foot) will start tonight
Wall will play and start in tonight's game against the Chicago Bulls after previously being listed as probable on the Wizards' injury report with a minor left foot sprain. Wall is also not expected to be limited by a minutes restriction in tonight's contest, according to Wizards head coach Scott Brooks, and should see his normal allotment of playing time. Given this news, Wall should be targeted in daily fantasy formats as normal and draws a juicy matchup with a Bulls squad that ranks 24th in DvP against opposing point guards.
John Wall (foot) will play Friday as expected
Wall had been listed as probable and this news serves as confirmation he will suit up. He sprained his left foot on Wednesday, but was able to return to that game. Coach Scott Brooks said that there will be "no limitations" on Wall. He should be deployed in all starting lineups as usual.
John Wall listed as probable in game notes for Washington; Trey Burke out
Wall stated yesterday that his chances of playing were 50-50 and that his status was up in the air but the official game notes have him listed as probable. Game notes are always hard to rely upon so stay tuned for any news that might come in regarding the Wizards All Star point guard. Brandon Jennings would benefit the most if Wall can't play. Trey Burke is out for Washington.
John Wall (foot) listed as probable Friday
On Thursday, Wall said his chances of playing were "50-50" and that it was "up in the air." We know never to place too much faith in the game notes, but it could be a positive sign that the team is listing him as "probable," as opposed to "questionable." We should have a more thorough update following the Wizards shootaround. If Wall can't play, Brandon Jennings is expected to draw the start at point guard.
John Wall's status uncertain for Friday due to a sprained foot
Wall played 36 minutes against the Mavericks on Wednesday but is dealing with a sprained foot. Wall mentioned that he's 50/50 to play and his absence would immediately open the door for Brandon Jennings to start. This is a situation we'll continue to monitor as the usage is also spread throughout the team. There should be another update on Wall after shootaround tomorrow.
John Wall says he's '50-50' for Friday
"It's up in the air," Wall said. Earlier today, coach Scott Brooks said he should know more on Friday morning, so we should have an update at shootaround. Wall has been extremely durable this season and has only missed two games due to rest earlier in November. That's extremely impressive because the plan was to rest him on back-to-backs until January. If he's out, Brandon Jennings will be a solid start in a good matchup against Rajon Rondo.
