  • John Wall wears hoodies to deal w/ migraines

    "I have migraines a lot, so I always wear hoodies," Wall said. "If you know me, I've always got shades on and I wear hoodies with shorts." He dealt with migraines as recently as March of last season, at which point we wrote, "[Wall] had a gallon of water as he arrived to the arena and warmed up wearing a hoodie." He also dealt with migraines for a few weeks in early 2015, but obviously has a regimen to deal with them. Nothing suggests this will be an issue going forward, and Wall only broached the topic because people were comparing him to 'Hoodie Melo'.

  • John Wall will not play in preseason opener

    Wall isn't dealing with any kind of injury, but this is a meaningless game against a non-NBA team, so head coach Scott Brooks will withhold his star point guard from participating. Brooks also said that while he'll allow Bradley Beal to step on the court tonight, he'll only grant him roughly 10 minutes of playing time.

  • John Wall's $170m extension is official

    Wall called it an "easy decision" to agree to a deal that will keep him in Washington through the 2022-23 season. Team president Ernie Grunfeld said that Wall has "constantly worked to improve and expand his game and has developed into an All-NBA player who has elevated our franchise and electrified our fans." He's been remarkably durable over the past four seasons and should once again return cumulative first-round value in 8-cat fantasy leagues.

  • John Wall signs designed player exception

    Wall's extension includes a fourth-year player option and a 15 percent trade kicker, per ESPN. Wall will be the franchise player for the Wizards and should contend for the league lead in dimes. One year after surgery on both knees, Wall should be set for a big season.

  • Leonsis predicts J. Wall will sign extension

    "He wants to be here and my goal is to have no drama," Leonsis said. It's obvious that the Wizards want to have Wall around at the max, but they do have to convince Wall that the Wizards will be able to compete for a title. Despite surgery on both knees last offseason, Wall played in 78 games with career-high averages in points, assists, steals and offensive rebounds.

  • John Wall not ready to talk extension

    The Wizards have a four-year max extension on the table that would start after the 2019 season, but it sounds like Wall is going to take his time making a decision. "Not yet," he said. "Everybody knows where I want to be." He added that his offseason goal is work on his conditioning so that he will have the stamina to better close out games. Wall underwent surgeries to both knees prior to last season, but he was excellent with averages of 23.1 points, 10.6 assists, 4.2 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 1.1 3-pointers. Fantasy owners can feel comfortable about selecting him at the turn of the first and second rounds.

  • Wizards looking to lock up John Wall?

    That offer would be a four-year deal starting after the 2019 season and pay Wall the highest amount possible. However, Wall reportedly isn't sure if he is going to take it because he wants to make sure the Wizards are going in the right direction before making such a long-term commitment.

  • John Wall recruiting Indy's Paul George

    "Look at our team. We are one piece away," Wall said. "We have the point guard, we have the shooting guard, we have the center, we have the power forward. Our 3-man, [Otto Porter Jr.], did great for us. You can't take nothing away from what he did. But, [George] is a guy that can guard LeBron and go back at LeBron. It's a piece that you're going to need to win. If you don't have a guy who can do that, you don't have a chance. George appears to have his sights set on L.A. or Cleveland in the end, but it's not unthinkable that he could opt to join forces with Wall and Beal in Washington for the right deal. Either way, George's days in Indy appear to be numbered and it will be fun to watch his negotiations until we see where he'll finally land.

  • John Wall would like Wiz to improve the bench

    "We need to help our bench," said Wall. "Just to be honest, that was our downfall in each series that we had in the [Eastern Conference] semifinals, our bench got outplayed." In particular, the Wiz need to add quality backup guards. Wal was clearly worn down by the end of the seven-game series vs. Boston. Tomas Satoransky and Trey Burke were inconsistent all season. Washington then signed Brandon Jennings, but Jennings was awful in the postseason. The Wiz need to add a reliable backup PG to limit the wear-and-tear on Wall going forward.
