Wizards coach Scott Brooks said that John Wall has the ability to become one of the best players in the league.
"He has the ability to be one of the best players in the game," Brooks said. "He can fill up the stat sheet. He can score at a high level, and he’s improved his 3-point shooting. I like his ability to make plays for others. Always been a high-assist guy. His rebounding is good, solid for that position." Brooks did say that he wants Wall to get to the free throw line more, saying that he and Bradley Beal should combine for 12 attempts per game. Still only 25 years old, Brooks could help Wall realize his full potential. Apr 30 - 12:00 PM

Coach Scott Brooks said John Wall could hit another level or even two or three more.

Wall sort of plateaued last season with more turnovers, only an 0.2 assists per game increase and a dip in true shooting percentage despite more 3-pointers. Brooks is known for his somewhat simplistic offense, but he's done a decent job of developing some players. Wall will likely be worth a look in the second round of a standard-league draft and a late first in eight-category leagues.
Apr 27 - 2:44 PM

John Wall (knee) will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

Wall will miss the final game of the 2015-16 season for Washington, and he'll end his year with averages of 19.9 points, 10.3 assists, 4.9 boards, 1.5 triples, 1.9 steals and 4.1 turnovers per contest on 42.4 percent shooting. Ramon Sessions will draw another start tonight, and he's an option in daily leagues. Wall will make for a fine second-round target in 9-cat leagues next season.
Apr 13 - 12:20 PM

John Wall (knee) will not play against the Nets on Monday.

This isn't a surprise and he's likely out for the season. Ramon Sessions will get another start and he should a must-own player for the final two games. Wall should be dropped in re-draft leagues.
Apr 11 - 6:14 PM

John Wal (knee) is doubtful to play against the Nets on Monday.

The Wizards really have nothing to play for now. In fact, their win on Sunday moved them down to a tie for the 12 and 13 spots in the lottery with Houston -- their pick goes to Phoenix unless they win a top-three pick. As for Wall, he is unlikely to play tonight. Ramon Sessions will be a must-start option.
Apr 11 - 3:58 PM

John Wall (knee) acknowledged that he may not play again during the 2015-16 season.

Wall has spent the past three games on the sidelines with a sore knee, and with just two more games remaining on the schedule for Washington and the playoffs no longer a possibility, it would be far from surprising to see Wall shut down. Ramon Sessions will continue to start in his absence, and with averages of 15.0 points, 10.0 assists and 1.0 triples on 50.0 percent shooting as a starter this season, he's worth a look just about everywhere.
Apr 10 - 3:11 PM

John Wall (knee) will not play on Sunday vs. the Hornets.

The Wizards have been eliminated from playoff contention, so Wall's season could be over. Ramon Sessions will draw another start and is worth a long look in DFS. Sessions is averaging 14.3 points, 8.3 assists and 3.0 boards over his last three games.
Apr 10 - 11:18 AM

John Wall (knee) will not play against the Pistons on Friday.

That should seal the fate of the Wizards and Wall could be shut down with a loss tonight. Ramon Sessions will get another start and will be a must-play option in DFS with his cheap price. Bradley Beal will be very busy.
Apr 8 - 6:45 PM

John Wall (knee) is a game-time call against the Pistons on Friday.

The Wizards will be knocked out with a loss, so Wall might want to play here. Still, he's closer to doubtful and he didn't even warm up on Wednesday. Ramon Sessions is still expected to start.
Apr 8 - 6:08 PM

John Wall (knee) said that he "probably" won't play on Friday vs. the Pistons.

"I don’t know," Wall said. "Probably not, to be honest." Wall had an MRI on Wednesday after missing the first game of his season, but it didn't reveal any damage. Wall did have his knee drained which took care of the swelling, but the pain is still there. "It took all the fluid out but it’s just still sore and numb to move," Wall added. This doesn't sound too promising, so his owners should probably have a backup plan ready. Ramon Sessions had 18 points and 13 assists in his last start, so he would be worth a long look in DFS if Wall sits.
Apr 8 - 2:22 PM

John Wall (knee) still doesn't know if he will play on Friday vs. the Pistons.

He missed the morning shootaround, so he's shaping up to be a game-time call. This is a must-win game for Washington to keep their playoff hopes alive, so expect Wall to do everything in his power to play. If Wall sits, Ramon Sessions would be worth a long look in DFS after scoring 18 points with 13 assists in his previous start.
Apr 8 - 12:17 PM

John Wall (knee) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Pistons.

Wall sat out Wednesday's win over the Nets, and he was spotted walking with a limp in the locker room. If Washington can pullout a win over Detroit, it will greatly improve their playoff odds, so perhaps Wall guts that one out. Owners can expect to get another update on his status following Friday morning's shootaround, but if he's out, it'll be Ramon Sessions earning another start with Bradley Beal shouldering a larger load on offense. Stay tuned.
Apr 7 - 2:40 PM

John Wall (knee) is out for Wednesday against the Nets.

He was walking with a limp and he did not go through warmups. There's a chance Wall gets shut down going forward with the Wizards possibly knocked out of the playoffs tonight. Ramon Sessions figures to get heavy run at the point and is worth a look in a favorable matchup. Garrett Temple should get some added minutes, too.
Apr 6 - 6:11 PM

John Wall (sore knee) is questionable to face the Nets on Wednesday.

The Wizards basically have to win out to keep their playoff hopes alive, so expect Wall to at least give it a try. Perhaps the bad news on this is that Wall could be a shutdown candidate once the Wizards are eliminated. If Wall is out, Ramon Sessions will take over the starting gig.
Apr 6 - 5:31 PM

John Wall scored 15 points and handed out 13 assists on Sunday, but it wasn't enough to earn a win vs. the Clippers at Staples Center.

"When we play defense and we're locked in, we're a totally different team," Wall said this weekend. His team didn't get the memo tonight, allowing the Clippers to shoot 50.6 percent from the field with a 42.1 percent mark from downtown. The loss puts Washington 3.5 games behind the No. 8 seed Pacers, with only five games left in the Wizards' regular season.
