John Wall went through an "extensive workout" with the Wizards on Tuesday.
Wall got up some shots, did hard cuts and also went through some dribble drills where he'd burst to the rim. Scott Brooks said that he'll do "a little more" on Friday, but wouldn't commit to Wall being able to go through contact, which would mean no 5-on-5 work. Wall will need to go through some full contact, 5-on-5 work before he's cleared to play, so if that doesn't happen on Friday, we can assume he won't play on Saturday against the Pacers. Stay tuned.

John Wall (knee) might be able to get in a full contact, 5-on-5 practice on Friday.

Wall was able to get through some 5-on-0 work during Monday's practice, so going 5-on-5 will be the next major step. "I just want him to keep doing the work that he’s put in," Scott Brooks said. "We just want to make sure we’re never going to put him out there before he’s ready. Whenever he’s ready — whether it’s eight games, one game, no game — if he’s ready to play, he’s ready to play." The Wizards might want him to get in a few full-contact practices before he gets back out there, so Wall might not play this week.

John Wall (knee) participated in a 5-on-0 workout with the starters on Monday.

"He looked good," coach Scott Brooks said. Wall worked out for about 35 minutes and this was the "next step" in his rehab. Brooks added that Wall is progressing in the right direction of taking contact, so it sounds like a return in mid-March is still on the table. For fantasy owners in the playoffs, Wall's return can't come soon enough.

John Wall (knee) did some side to side shooting and slow movement during Wednesday's shootaround.

This is the second day in a row that Wall has gone through some on-court work, and Scott Brooks again said that he "looked good" while he was out there. Based on Wall's initial 6-8 week timetable, the earliest Wall will be able to return will be for a home game against the Timberwolves on March 13, so he's worth stashing if you've got an open IR-spot or if you've got a post-season spot locked up with a bye week.

John Wall (knee) did some light shooting on Tuesday.

"[He] moved around pretty good. Not a lot of reps, got a good sweat," said Scott Brooks of Wall's first workout since going under the knife in late-January. "Good workout. That’s another step in the progress in his return, see how he feels tomorrow." If all goes well, Wall's earliest possible return date would be on March 13 for a home game against the Timberwolves. He's worth stashing if you've got an open IR-spot.
Mar 6 - 5:32 PM

Coach Scott Brooks said that John Wall (knee) will begin on-court workouts "soon."

Wall had surgery four weeks ago and has missed 15 games. The initial timeline for his return was 6-8 weeks. TNT's David Aldridge reported yesterday that Wall will miss another 2-4 weeks, so he's on schedule. "On the court soon," coach Brooks said before Friday night’s game regarding Wall’s progress. "Probably [Friday] or [Saturday]. It’s very light shooting." Tomas Satoransky will continue to hold down starting PG duties.
Mar 3 - 9:22 AM

John Wall (knee) is expected to miss at least 2-4 more weeks according to TNT reporter David Aldridge.

He had surgery a month ago and this timetable is right in line with the 6-8 week timetable he was given right after surgery. Wall is expected to begin light shooting any day now, and while he's reportedly ahead of schedule, the Wizards will obviously be cautious. The good news is that this means he could return in time to help his owners in the fantasy playoffs. In the meantime, Tomas Satoransky and Bradley Beal will continue to share the ball-handling duties.
Mar 2 - 7:20 PM

John Wall (knee) has been riding a bike to improve his cardio.

He's ahead of schedule, but he is not going to rush back. Wall is expected to be out 6-8 weeks, so that should mean he'll be looking at a late-March return. Tomas Satoransky has been terrific as the starting PG while Bradley Beal continues to distribute the ball and run the offense more often.
Mar 1 - 2:56 PM

According to Candace Buckner of the Washington Post, John Wall (knee surgery) "no longer needs crutches and shows no visible hitch in his walk."

It's been two weeks since his surgery, and while John Wall didn't reveal much, he hinted that he's still hoping to return between the 6- to 8-week mark. "I haven’t really tried to get back on the court yet so, just doing the little things. And I haven’t started running yet. So whenever I get to that point I can kind of start grasping stuff and understanding what level I’m at but right now it’s between six to eight weeks," he said. "It might be longer but I don’t know. I haven’t got to that point." We'll continue to track his progress every step of the way, but it's possible he returns in time to help his owners in the fantasy playoffs.

John Wall and Marcin Gortat met privately last week to confront each other about where they stood with one another, according to Chris Hayes of ESPN.

After a victory over the Raptors back on Feb. 1, the team's third straight win with Wall sidelined due to knee surgery, Gortat tweeted: "Great 'team' victory." Last week, during an appearance on SportsCenter, Wall replied, "It was more just shock to hear it from him, understanding he gets the most assists from me and the most spoon-fed baskets ever." Per the ESPN report: "The meeting, which didn't last long, facilitated the airing of grievances, but sources say there is still more work to be done to fully repair that relationship."
Feb 14 - 9:50 AM

John Wall (knee) is expected to remain on crutches for about another week.

"I’m not a doctor," coach Scott Brooks said. "I know our guys are good and he’s diligent in his rehab and he’s been in here every day. He’s on crutches, I’m assuming, for another week. Maybe a little longer." He's limited to work on an AlterG antigravity treadmill for now, and based on his original timetable of 6-8 weeks, we won't see him on the court again until mid-March at the earliest. Luckily for the Wizards, Tomas Satoransky has been outstanding.

John Wall will undergo a "clean up" procedure on his left knee on Wednesday and will be sidelined for 6-8 weeks.

Wall did not play Sunday after it was revealed that he was dealing with a recurrence of soreness and swelling in his left knee. Wall flew to Cleveland on Monday to get a second opinion from the doctor who performed his original knee surgery in 2016. A decision has now been made to have the knee scoped. The first report from The Washington Post indicated that Wall would miss six weeks. However, Woj tweeted out that Wall could be sidelined for two months. Tomas Satoransky and Tim Frazier will divvy up minutes at point guard in Wall's absence.

John Wall (left knee) is doubtful to play Tuesday vs. the Thunder.

Wall underwent an MRI on Monday, but the results of that have not been made public and he's currently headed to Cleveland where he'll receive a second opinion on the knee that required a PRP injection earlier in the year from the doctor who performed his original knee surgery in 2016; so there's some cause for concern here. If Wall can't play Tuesday, Tomas Satoransky would have the opportunity to start and he'd be on the radar as a potential streamer.

As expected, John Wall (knee) did not practice on Monday.

Wall is currently in Cleveland getting a second opinion on his sore left knee. He received platelet-rich plasma injections to reduce the inflammation in his left knee back in late November which sidelined him for nine games, but he's currently listed as day-to-day and should be considered questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Thunder. If Wall can't go, Tomas Satoransky would be worth a look as a streaming option after scoring 11 points with seven assists in his last start.

John Wall (sore left knee) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. Atlanta.

Wall received platelet-rich plasma injections to reduce the inflammation in his left knee back in late November, which caused him to miss a total of nine games. He has started each of the 21 games the Wizards have played since. However, per coach Scott Brooks, Wall has dealt with left knee issues during this Wizards current road trip, and it became evident Thursday in OKC that "something was wrong." Brooks said Wall is day-to-day. Wall said he plans to travel to Cleveland next Monday to get a second opinion on the knee. Tomas Satoransky will start at PG on Saturday.
