Holy cow the Wizards are bad right now. They're 2-11 in their last 13 games and have lost their last six.

John Wall hit just 2-of-10 shots for five points, 10 assists and four turnovers in 35 minutes as the Wizards were blown out by the Timberwolves 97-77 on Wednesday.

The five points were a season low for Wall, but he's surprisingly had several single-digit scoring nights this season. The Wizards are struggling without Bradley Beal, but still sit as the No. 5 seed in the East despite going 2-8 over their last 10 games. Wall will bounce back from this game, no problem.

John Wall scored 16 points and handed out 11 assists vs. Steph Curry and the Warriors on Tuesday, but he also committed eight turnovers in the Wizards' defeat.

Wall is once again leading the NBA with 578 total assists, putting him 19 dimes ahead of second-place Chris Paul. He shot just 8-of-18 from the field, missing all of his 3-pointers and his only free throw attempt, and the high turnovers are a fact of life for Wall's fantasy owners -- only James Harden has coughed up the rock more often than Wall this season.

John Wall and Randy Wittman met to discuss the Wizards' strategy at the end of quarters.

"Just talking to coach about basically too many isos and not getting good shots out of them," Wall said. "And then our percentage, even when we got good shots, is low so [we decided to] just get more movement and just try to get more movement and a better shot to get our percentage up." The conversation was aimed at Wall getting better looks late in the clock, especially since he's currently shooting just 20.4 percent in the final 24 seconds of a quarter.

John Wall currently leads all point guards in defensive real plus-minus at plus-2.54, a major jump from last season's real plus-minus of minus-0.44

"Playing in the playoffs last year, I just got more committed [on defense], knowing that every possession matters," Wall said. "And then I was like, ‘Why not take it to the regular season?’" Wall is having a fantastic season with averages of 17.4 points, a league-leading (and career-high) 10.1 assists, and 1.9 steals per game on a career-high 46.0 percent shooting from the field. He'll be a very fun point guard to own in fantasy leagues for many years to come.

John Wall (ankle) will not be on a minutes restriction during the All-Star game on Sunday night.

He is said to be gunning for Magic Johnson's assist record (22) on Sunday night, so we should be in for quite a show. Wall has been dealing with nagging ankle injuries in the past few weeks along with some mysterious migraines, so the next few days off will be just what he needs to keep his foot on the gas pedal when the season starts back up.
Feb 15 - 1:13 PM

John Wall said that he re-sprained his ankle during Monday's win over the Magic, but he says he's fine.

Wall has been battling with minor ankle sprains to both of his feet since January, but the injury has not caused him to miss any time. We'll consider him questionable for Wednesday's game against the Raptors, and if he's unable to go Andre Miller and Garrett Temple would see some increased floor time. Although, given Wall's tendency to play through the various nicks and bruises, we'd expect him to play.
Feb 10 - 3:10 PM

John Wall (rest) has pulled out of the Skills Challenge over All-Star weekend, but not because of injury.

Wall's fantasy owners can breathe a sigh of relief as Wall is only sitting out of the skills contest to get some extra rest over the All-Star break. The 24-year-old has seen his number drop a tad over his last five games with averages of 16.2 points, 9.8 assists, 4.6 rebounds, and 0.6 steals, so his fantasy owners can take comfort in the fact that he'll be getting some extra rest in order to finish the season strong.
Feb 10 - 1:12 PM

John Wall made three 3-pointers on his way to 17 points during a blowout 114-77 win over the Nets on Saturday, adding two rebounds, seven assists and five turnovers.

The Wizards needed this game badly and they snapped a five-game losing streak tonight. Most of Wall's numbers are actually up in his last five, averaging 20.0 points, 4.2 boards, 10.2 boards, 0.6 steals and 1.6 treys on 47.1 percent from the field. He should be even better than this.
Feb 7 - 9:49 PM

John Wall scored only two points in the second half of Thursday's 94-87 loss to the Hornets, finishing with 15 points, three rebounds, one steal and four turnovers in 38 minutes.

He continues to play through ankle and migraine issues, but it's hard to tell if it's affecting him outside of how he said he's struggling with his explosiveness. Interestingly, Wall has made 49.3 percent from the field in the first half of his 10 games compared to just 43.9 percent -- his shooting percentage was higher in the second half before that. Regardless, Wall is a must-start player and it's not a bad idea to try and buy low.
Feb 5 - 10:19 PM

John Wall said that his most recent ankle issue has impacted his explosiveness.

"You can’t really run and cut like you want to," Wall said. "So it takes away from my explosiveness." Wall aggravated his ankle twice during Wednesday's loss to the Hawks, and while he isn't expected to miss any action, it's definitely something for his owners to monitor going forward. Wall should be in line for a nice game on Thursday with Brian Roberts running the show for Charlotte, so owners in daily leagues shouldn't shy away from him barring a setback.
Feb 5 - 6:23 PM

John Wall hit 9-of-15 shots and three 3-pointers for 24 points, seven rebounds, nine assists and a steal in Wednesday's loss to the Hawks.

There's nothing out of the ordinary about this line for Wall, as he's been doing this all season long.
Feb 4 - 10:33 PM

John Wall played through a couple ailments on Monday against the Hornets, finishing with 16 points, one rebound, 10 assists and one 3-pointer.

He has been dealing with migraines for a couple weeks and has a foot problem, but he did play 34 minutes tonight. The Wizards have a back-to-back starting on Wednesday against the Hawks and they will take on the Hornets on Thursday. Wall made 46.2 percent from the field over his previous 10 with averages of 18 points and 10 dimes, so he should be fine.
Feb 2 - 10:26 PM

John Wall (ankle, migraines) will start against the Hornets on Monday.

He was questionable for Saturday, but he played a whopping 45 minutes in an overtime loss to the Raptors. Wall is going to be at less than 100 percent, but it doesn't seem like it will affect his minutes. His owners can plug him into their lineups like they normally do.
Feb 2 - 5:22 PM

John Wall (migraines) did not go through Monday's shootaround.

Wall said that he wasn't sure about his availability for Monday after experiencing migraines in Saturday's overtime loss to the Raptors, and he's been dealing with the headaches for more than just one game. He's shaping up to be a game-time call, and if Wall sits out, Garrett Temple could draw the start so Andre Miller can remain with the second unit. Temple was previously running with the starters a few days ago in shootaround when Wall's status was in jeopardy.
