John Wall has been playing through a shoulder strain.
"It's all right. It [will] be all right," Wall said of his right shoulder. "I have a little strain in it and it's something I have to deal with, but you make no excuses when you're in the playoffs." He is not in jeopardy of missing Game 1 on Sunday against the Hawks. Wall had a very good season against the Hawks on the stat sheet, but his turnovers were ridiculously high at 6.8 per game. If the Wizards are going to win, he'll need to cut down those TOs. May 2 - 3:38 PM

John Wall racked up 26 points and a Wizards' playoff-record 17 assists during Tuesday's Game 2 victory, adding one 3-pointer, one steal and one block.

Wall was playing through a sore shoulder but you couldn't tell by watching him -- he turned the ball over five times but that's a footnote to an otherwise brilliant game. He shot 8-of-16 from the field and 8-of-11 at the FT line with one steal and one block, thoroughly dominating his matchup with Kyle Lowry (six points, four assists), and heads back to D.C. with his team firmly in control of the series.

John Wall scored 10 points with six boards, eight assists, one block and one turnover against the Raptors on Saturday in his 44 minutes of action.

He missed a 19-foot contested jumper at the end of regulation and the Wall isolation plays were coming early and often. They didn't really work because he made just 5-of-18 from the field today. Wall hasn't been settling for jumpers nearly as much these days and the Wizards are at their best when he's breaking down defenses. Wall and Bradley Beal had bad games today and they were still able to win, so the Wizards have to be happy about that.
Apr 18 - 4:26 PM

John Wall and Bradley Beal will not play against the Cavs on Wednesday.

It's just rest and they're both fine. The Wizards have nothing to play for and will be the No. 5 seed to face either the Raptors or Bulls. With Wall out, Ramon Sessions and Will Bynum will handle the point. Bynum has the higher upside while Sessions is safer.
Apr 15 - 6:44 PM

Randy Wittman would not say whether his starters would play their usual allotment of minutes for Tuesday's game vs. the Pacers.

Wittman simply responded, "we'll see," when directly if he'd try to limit the minutes of his starters, so daily leaguers with their sights on John Wall, Bradley Beal, Paul Pierce, or Marcin Gortat may want to consider looking elsewhere for production.

The Wizards reportedly won't rest John Wall or any other players during Tuesday's game against the Pacers.

The Pacers bounced the Wizards from the playoffs last season and John Wall and his teammates now have a chance to keep the Pacers from making this year's playoffs. "We feel like we owe them from last year," Wall said. While Wall, Bradley Beal, Paul Pierce, and other Wizards starters will play on Tuesday night, look for them to see decreased minutes as the Wizards don't have playoff positioning on the line.

John Wall (ankle) said he was "perfectly fine" on Sunday.

It doesn't sound like the ankle is a major concern at this point. "I was perfectly fine," Wall said. "I was not fatigued or anything like that." We don't expect Wall to take any additional time off before the regular season concludes.
Apr 13 - 9:57 AM

John Wall (ankle) logged 35 minutes vs. the short-handed Hawks on Sunday, posting 24 points, two 3-pointers, four rebounds, nine assists, two steals, one block and a season-high 10 turnovers.

His ankle was still swollen and it's somewhat surprising that Washington played him, but you won't hear Wall's owners complaining despite the small mountain of turnovers. His DNPs on Wednesday and Friday were the only games he missed all season, which helped him attain top-10 value on a cumulative basis this season (8-cat). There are no indications that he'll sit out Tuesday or Wednesday, but it can't hurt to check his status in a back-to-back set.
Apr 12 - 8:58 PM

John Wall (ankle) will be in the starting lineup vs. the Hawks on Sunday, sending Ramon Sessions back to the bench.

This is definitely surprising considering the Hawks are resting their entire first unit tonight and Wall's ankle is reportedly still swollen, but his owners can go ahead and activate him in all lineups. We will let you know how he holds up after the game, while Ramon Sessions can be cut in most leagues with his demotion to the bench.
Apr 12 - 5:25 PM

John Wall will be available to play Sunday vs. the Hawks.

The Wizards have not yet made their starting lineup available, and it's anyone's guess if Wall will play tonight. Him being listed as available is an encouraging sign, but he is reportedly dealing with a swollen ankle, so he may spend another game on the sidelines in order to be ready for the playoffs. Owners will need to check back for another update closer to tip-off as it seems Wall is headed for the dreaded game-time decision.
Apr 12 - 4:17 PM

John Wall (ankle) did not go through shootaround, and he will be a game-time decision for Sunday's game vs. the Hawks.

Wall's ankle is still pretty swollen and it doesn't make a lot of sense for the Wizards to risk his health this close to playoffs. We should have another update closer to tip-off, but Wall's owners should have a backup plan ready. Ramon Sessions will continue to start if Wall is unable to play, while Will Bynum will continue to see more minutes as well.
Apr 12 - 12:09 PM

John Wall (rest) said he will not play Friday vs. the Nets.

Wall is healthy, and was a full participant during shootaround, but he will not suit up for Friday's game. Ramon Sessions will likely earn another start tonight, and he's certainly someone to consider in daily leagues after putting up 19 points and seven assists during his last outing. Will Bynum will also have the opportunity for some extended run, but Sessions is the guy to target here.
Apr 10 - 12:28 PM

John Wall (rest) will not play vs. the 76ers on Wednesday and Ramon Sessions is expected to draw the start.

Despite dealing with a variety of injuries, Wall hadn't missed a game this season prior to this news and it's probably a good idea for the Wizards to be cautious leading into playoffs. Wall should be ready to go Friday's game vs. the Nets, but we will update his status once we know more. Sessions is worth a look as a streamer in deeper leagues while Will Bynum figures to get more playing time as well.
Apr 8 - 11:53 AM

John Wall handed out 14 assists against the Grizzlies on Saturday with 18 points, six rebounds and one 3-pointer.

His dimes are way up in his last four with 14.8 per game. Wall and the Wizards are back on a three-game winning streak and turned it around again. They've been known to have their prolonged slumps, so they'll need to stay hot to make noise in the postseason. Wall is 0.2 behind Chris Paul for the league lead in dimes per game.
Apr 5 - 12:49 AM

John Wall handed out a career-high 19 assists in the Wizards' 101-87 win over the Knicks on Friday, and also chipped in with six points, two rebounds and two steals in his 29 minutes.

Wall wasn't really needed for more than he gave tonight so the assists helped prop up a garbage-time outing.
