John Wall said the Wizards shouldn't have rested he and Bradley Beal at the same time during the fourth quarter of Wednesday's loss to the Hornets.
Wall and Beal both sat for the first part of the fourth quarter and Wall thinks it helped contribute to the loss. "I feel like we can’t have me and Brad sitting," said Wall. "That’s just my opinion. Coach makes the decision he feels is best for us. I just feel like one of us has to be in in that situation because when you’re on the road, this is the time when you can step on them." Frustrations aside, Wall has been struggling for the last couple weeks, but is too talented for fantasy owners to bench as a turnaround should be around the corner. Nov 26 - 12:55 PM

John Wall stole the ball a season-high six times on Wednesday, adding 14 points, two 3-pointers, five rebounds and six assists in a tough road defeat.

Wall's career-high is nine steals and he's now averaging 2.4 per game this season, good for fourth place in the NBA behind Jae Crowder, Stephen Curry and Kyle Lowry. It wasn't all positive for Wall tonight, however, as he also shot 6-of-18 from the field with a team-high five turnovers.
Nov 25 - 9:46 PM

John Wall was efficient during a 115-86 win over the Bucks on Tuesday, making 7-of-10 from the field for 19 points with six rebounds, nine assists, two 3-pointers and five turnovers in 31 minutes.

He was not having a good month before this one, making just 35.5 percent from the field in his previous five games. Wall still has some turnover bugaboos right now and is leading the Eastern Conference with 4.3 turnovers per game. The turnovers won't be coming down, but at least he should be better from the field.
Nov 17 - 10:18 PM

John Wall made just 5-of-14 from the field for 15 points during a 108-99 win over the Magic on Saturday, adding three rebounds, 11 assists, one steal, one block, one 3-pointer and four turnovers.

He's in a serious shooting slump. In his last five, he's made just 35.5 percent from the field due to making just 25.0 percent from beyond the restricted area. On the bright side, he has averages of 14.6 points, 9.8 dimes, 2.4 steals, 1.2 blocks and 0.8 treys. This is a mini buy-low window.
Nov 14 - 10:29 PM

John Wall didn't have much to offer against Russell Westbrook on Tuesday, hitting just 4-of-13 shots for nine points, two rebounds, five assists and two steals.

Meanwhile, Westy racked up a triple-double on the same night Kevin Durant went down with a hamstring injury and didn't return to the game. Wall will bounce back and be fine, but this was a tough way for him to start the week out for his owners.
Nov 10 - 9:49 PM

John Wall scored 19 points during a 114-99 loss to the Hawks on Saturday, adding two rebounds, 12 assists, two steals, one block, two 3-pointers and seven turnovers.

He might have some more scoring on his plate. Before tonight, Wall had a 37.5 usage rate in his 34 minutes without Bradley Beal (shoulder) this season and it was still very high at 29.3 in his 1,200 minutes sans Beal last year. Wall is going to put up big numbers regardless, but DFS owners will likely be all over him if Beal is out.
Nov 8 - 1:34 AM

John Wall had eight turnovers to go with his eight assists in Friday's loss to the Celtics.

Wall hit 6-of-17 shots with no threes and just one trip to the foul line, finishing with 13 points, five boards, three steals and three blocks over 28 minutes. The defensive stats help ease the pain of the inefficient night, and he has had a top 5-10 start so far this season in 8- and 9-cat leagues, respectively.
Nov 6 - 10:32 PM

Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich praised John Wall's play in the Wizards win over the Spurs on Wednesday.

While calling Wall's play brilliant, Popovich heaped praise on the 25-year-old after the loss. "He got the ball to the right people at appropriate times, often," Popovich said of Wall. "He was very consistent, he made big shots when he needed to, but the floor game was really excellent." Wall is off to a strong start this season and is well on his way towards making his fantasy owners happy that they drafted him in the early rounds of drafts.
Nov 5 - 10:51 AM

John Wall dished a season-high 13 assists vs. the Spurs on Wednesday, adding 17 points, two rebounds, four assists, one block and only one turnover.

Wall shot only 6-of-16 from the field but he controlled the game for stretches, and his efforts yielded another victory. His ability to limit turnovers was critical tonight -- the Wizards had 10 turnovers vs. 20 for the Spurs, including nine in the fourth quarter alone.
Nov 4 - 10:10 PM

John Wall scored 19 points on 4-of-10 shooting (including a three) with one rebound, 10 assists, two steals and one block in Friday's road win over the Bucks.

Wall hit 10-of-10 free throws and also fell on his previously injured left hand, but shook it off and stayed in the game. For now owners can consider this nothing, but if we see any more recurrence of the injury then we'll stick it on our radar at that time.
Oct 31 - 1:40 AM

John Wall set a new career-high with five blocks on Wednesday, adding 22 points, two 3-pointers, seven rebounds, six assists, three steals and six turnovers in a win vs. the Magic.

He missed four of his six FT attempts, but made 9-of-18 from the field and launched six 3-point attempts, proving that he won't be shy from the perimeter this season. Wall has missed only three games over the past two seasons and is a thrill to own.
Oct 28 - 9:53 PM

John Wall thinks that his game is peaking at the right time.

"I think I’m peaking at the right time," Wall said. "I’m trying to get to where I want to be in this league. It all comes with time. Some people jump into the NBA and have success right away. Mine came a little bit later, but I’m cool with that because that’s how it was in my high school career, when I didn’t blossom on the scene until my junior year. And I know if you get that success and love early on and you don’t succeed and keep it up, they start to talk bad about you when you’re starting to drop. I’m just going to keep rising." The Wizards are going to play at a faster pace and Wall looked stronger than ever in the preseason, so he is poised for a top-10 season for those of you in 8-cat leagues.
Oct 24 - 10:59 AM

John Wall dropped dimes like a clumsy toll-booth attendant on Friday against the 76ers, handing out 14 assists in 21 minutes with six points, four rebounds, one steal and five turnovers.

The Wizards were going up and down with a break-neck pace, which has been been the case all month. Wall is doing a terrific job finding his teammates and he's the heavy favorite to lead the Eastern Conference in assists. He still has some turnover and efficiency issues, so he's not quite a first rounder in standard formats -- he is in eight-cat, though. Wall will likely rest on Saturday.
Oct 16 - 9:44 PM

John Wall said that his goal is to be the top point guard in the NBA.

"My goal is to be number one," Wall said. "There’s a lot of great talent in this league, so it’s great to move up. Each year I move up, that means I’ve improved. And now I want to move up even more. I don’t want to be satisfied with where I’m at." After making improvements in the offseason and challenging himself to cut down on the turnovers, Wall is shaping up to deliver another excellent season. He's a first-round pick in 8-cat leagues, and a 2nd/3rd round pick in 9-cat formats.
Oct 12 - 11:53 AM

John Wall handed out nine assists during the Wizards' easy win over Paschoalotto Bauru on Sunday, adding seven points, six rebounds, one steal, one 3-pointer and two turnovers through 23 minutes of action.

Washington got out to a 34-19 lead after the first quarter and never looked back, thoroughly embarrassing their international opponents with a 34-point blowout win. Bradley Beal ended his night with 17 points, two 3-pointers, two steals and a block, and Otto Porter had another solid outing with 12 points, two assists, three rebounds and a steal. Wall is a first-round stud in 8-cat leagues, but when you include the turnover category, his value plummets to the third-round.
