John Wall had a mixed game on Sunday, scoring 23 points with 11 assists, three rebounds and four steals, but he also committed nine turnovers.
Wall has at least five first-quarter assists in six consecutive games, and he did his best to carry his team to a win tonight, but their offense wasn't up to snuff at 42.5 percent shooting. His turnovers didn't help matters tonight, but all credit is due to Utah's suffocating team defense. Wall's shot has been off lately, so it was also nice to see him knock down 9-of-18 shots with a pair of 3-pointers tonight. Feb 26 - 7:56 PM

John Wall scored 29 points with eight rebounds, 14 assists, two blocks and six turnovers in a loss at Philadelphia on Friday.

He lived at the line with a career-high 13 makes in this win. On the other hand, Wall has struggled from the field in his last 10 games, making just 40.0 percent from the field with averages of 21.5 points, 3.7 boards, 12.9 assists, 1.5 steals, 4.2 turnover and 1.1 treys. The best part of his season is likely behind him after a monster December, but Wall is still an elite fantasy option.
Feb 24 - 10:21 PM

John Wall kept it going during a 111-98 win over the Pacers on Thursday, scoring 20 points with two rebounds, 12 assists, one steal, two blocks and five turnovers in 37 minutes.

Break up the Wizards. They have won 11 of their last 12 to help them surge to the No. 3 spot in the Eastern Conference. Wall has also passed Russell Westbrook for No. 2 in assists thanks to this outburst and is just 0.02 steals per game behind Draymond Green for the league lead in that department. Wall has absolutely earned his All-Star spot and has been among the best Eastern Conference player in the past month.
Feb 16 - 10:11 PM

John Wall played through a minor left ankle tweak in Monday's win over the Thunder, scoring 15 points with 14 assists.

Wall only played 30 minutes in the blowout, a welcome sight for the Wizards after he logged an average of 41.2 minutes per game in his previous five. He shot 4-of-10 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line, adding five rebounds, one steal, two blocks, one 3-pointer and five turnovers. This was his 31st game of the season with 15+ points and 10+ assists, so he's now tied with Russell Westbrook and only trails James Harden (39).

John Wall (left ankle) will play on Monday vs. the Thunder.

Wall didn't go through shootaround and also didn't practice on Sunday after rolling his left ankle on Friday vs. the Pacers, but the Wizards are just giving him some extra time off -- he's averaging 41.2 minutes per game over his last five. Wall said he's "fine" and his owners can feel confident about deploying him vs. the Thunder.

John Wall (left ankle) did not practice on Sunday.

He said he rolled his left ankle in the win over Indiana on Friday, but made it clear that he's fine. The Wizards simply gave him the day off because he's been logging 41.2 minutes per game over his last five, but expect him to see his normal workload vs. Russell Westbrook and the Thunder on Monday.
Feb 12 - 1:11 PM

John Wall scored 26 points to lead the Wizards to a 112-107 win over the Pacers on Friday.

Wall shot 7-of-16 from the field and 10-of-15 from the line, adding 14 assists, three rebounds, two steals, two triples and seven turnovers in 37 minutes. He was clutch down the stretch and accounted for Washington's final nine points of the game, and he now has at least 20 points and 10 assists in five consecutive games which matches a franchise record. He continues to defy all expectations after offseason surgeries to both knees.
Feb 11 - 12:19 AM

John Wall racked up 23 points, 12 assists, two blocks and one steal with three turnovers in 46 minutes vs. Brooklyn on Wednesday.

The Wizards lost a thriller to the Cavs on Monday, but they're still 8-1 in their past nine games, and 15-5 since the start of the New Year. Wall shot just 7-of-24 tonight but he's been terrific during his team's hot stretch, and his fantasy owners appreciate the fact that he's missed two games all season (in early November). Washington is in the thick of the playoff race, so there's no reason to think Wall will slow down after the All-Star break.
Feb 8 - 11:27 PM

John Wall scored 22 points with four rebounds, 12 assists, one steal and six turnovers against the Cavs on Monday.

It looked like Wall was going to have another one of his signature moments in a huge win, but the Wizards came up short to snap their 17-game home winning streak with Kyrie Irving taking over. Wall has cooled off slightly as a scorer over his last five, averaging 22.4 points, 3.0 boards, 13.6 assists, 2.2 steals, 0.6 blocks and 1.2 treys on 41.8 percent from the field. He'll get a dream matchup against the Nets on Wednesday to up his efficiency.

John Wall turned in a fantastic performance during a 105-91 win over the Pelicans on Saturday, scoring 24 points with three rebounds, 13 assists, five steals, one block and two 3-pointers.

He's playing like an MVP right now and completely carried his team late. The Wizards were down 83-80 at the start of the fourth, but Wall just brought great defense and nice stats. In those eight minutes, he scored six points with four assists, two steals, one block and no turnovers with his +53.9 net rating. He gets the Cavs for the next one and said it's the biggest regular season game of his career. "It's on," Wall said. We can't wait for Monday in D.C. with the Wizards on their 17-game winning streak at home.
Feb 4 - 10:24 PM

John Wall scored 33 points in a 116-108 win over the Lakers on Thursday, adding three rebounds, 11 assists, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers in 41 minutes.

That's the 16th consecutive win at home for the Wizards. There were a lot of Lakers fans out there for this game and they were even chanting for defense late when the Wizards had the ball. Wall has talked about the atmosphere at the arena before and this time it was Bradley Beal. "I'm sick of that too," Beal said on Thursday. "That's terrible. I felt like we were on the road today." Whatever the case, Wall is playing like an All-Star in any venue.
Feb 2 - 11:04 PM

John Wall scored 18 points with a season-high 19 assists, one rebound, two steals and one block during Sunday's 107-94 win over the Pelicans.

Wall recorded his 27th double-double of the season and his sixth of the month. This is his third consecutive year averaging a double-double, and he's currently averaging a career-high 23.0 points and 10.1 assists per game. He might be playing the best basketball of his career right now, even after having two surgeries on his knees this summer.
Jan 29 - 8:59 PM

Despite offseason operations on both knees, John Wall is playing at an extremely high level and is averaging a team-high 36.3 minutes per game.

Back at the start of the season, Wall was under doctor's orders to sit out the second night of back-to-backs and limit his minutes in general. As a result, Wall slipped further than he should have in fantasy drafts. Those that gambled on Wall have been rewarded. He is returning top-10 overall value while averaging career highs in points (23.1) points and steals (2.2), while also dishing out 10.1 assists per game. He is one of only three players James Harden and Russell Westbrook) averaging a point-assist double-double this season.

John Wall scored 19 points with six rebounds, nine assists and one 3-pointer during a 112-86 win over the Hawks on Friday.

Not the best game, not the worst game. The Wizards played their best ball when Wall kicked out to shooters, and they're at it again. On the year, Otto Porter and Bradley Beal have made a combined 113 treys off Wall passes this year, which already passes the 111 those two made all of last year. For a guy to have this kind of a season and make the All-Star team after two surgeries on his knees, it's pretty incredible. The Wizards have gone 10-2 in their last 12.
Jan 28 - 3:30 AM

John Wall revealed the original recovery plan for his two knee surgeries this summer was to hold him out in back-to-backs until January.

As we've said before, his surgeon needs a raise. Wall missed two games in a back-to-back set on Nov. 5 and Nov. 12, but he's been healthy since. On top of that, Wall has played 37.6 minutes per game on days with no rest, which is more than his average for days with one, two or three-plus days of rest. He's an All-Star and is playing the best ball of his life.
