John Wall scored 24 points with four rebounds, seven assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Blazers on Monday.
The wrist and pinkie injuries sure don't seem to be bothering him. Wall continues to talk about tweaking his shot due to his right pinkie, but he's taking jumpers with confidence and still blowing by people on drives. The Wizards were incredible in the first half with a 71 true shooting percentage to get them to 75 points and basically put the game out of reach in the third quarter. Wall's surgeon for the procedures on his knees probably needs a raise. Jan 16 - 5:46 PM

John Wall (wrist, pinkie) looked great in a 109-93 win over the 76ers on Saturday, scoring 25 points with seven rebounds, seven assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

Before the game, he said his hand injuries were affecting his shooting "big time" and he also was trying to figure out how to get the tape on his right pinkie to not affect him on the release either. Yeah, it didn't seem to bother him at all with a flurry of three treys in just a few minutes during the third quarter. Wall looks like he's good to go and should definitely be on the All-Star team.

John Wall (wrist/pinky) will play Saturday vs. the Sixers.

Wall did not practice with the team on Friday, but will be in the starting lineup for Saturday's game. It sounds like he will have to play with some sort of splint on the jammed pinky of his right (shooting) hand. The good news is that all X-Rays and MRI's on his pinky and swollen left wrist came back negative. As of now, it is unknown if the coach Scott Brooks will have a minutes restriction on Wall.

John Wall (wrist/pinky) is listed as probable for Saturday's game vs. Sixers.

Wall is dealing with a swollen left wrist and a jammed pinky finger on his right hand. Game notes are not overly reliable, so take this news with a grain of salt. However, it is encouraging that it appears Wall avoided any significant injury. Assuming he plays, it will be interesting to see if either injury impacts his shooting/production.

John Wall spent the end of practice taking free throws to keep his right pinkie away from his shooting motion.

He has a strip of black tape over his right pinkie, so that explains the adjustment. A pinkie isn't nearly as important to shooting a basketball as the index or middle fingers, but any change to a shooting motion has to be viewed as a negative for Wall. He may be looking to take more close-range shots in his next game, so we'll be tracking that.

John Wall (wrist/pinky) did not practice with the team on Friday.

Wall's left wrist is sore and swollen, but an MRI on his pinky finger came back negative for breaks or tears. And although he did not practice with the Wiz, Wall was at the facility, shooting around on the side. Coach Scott Brooks told reporters that there is a "possibility" that Wall will play on Saturday vs. the Sixers. Tomas Satoransky (illness) is questionable for Saturday. Trey Burke would see major minutes if both Wall and Satoransky were sidelined.
Jan 13 - 1:43 PM

Wizards coach Scott Brooks said John Wall's injuries could linger for the next couple weeks.

"It’s going to affect him a little bit in the next couple of weeks, but he’s tough," Brooks said. "He’s not gong to complain about it. That’s what I love about him. I love that competitive spirit." Wall is dealing with a swollen left wrist and a jammed right pinky, and while X-rays were negative, he could have an MRI on both Thursday. Hopefully we'll have an update later in the day, but Wall's status for Saturday's game vs. Philly is up in the air.
Jan 12 - 10:01 AM

X-rays were negative on John Wall's left wrist and right pinkie finger, but he might have an MRI on Thursday.

Wall came into Wednesday's game with both injuries preexisting. He played 39 minutes but finished just 4-of-21 from the field for a season-low nine points. The Wizards don't play until Saturday, which is fortunate, and we're considering him day-to-day until the test results are announced. If he does miss any games, both Trey Burke and Tomas Satoransky would be leaned on at PG, with Bradley Beal also doing more ball-handling.
Jan 11 - 11:25 PM

John Wall will have X-rays on his "badly swollen" left wrist after Wednesday's game vs. the Celtics.

Wall played 39 minutes on Wednesday, posting 10 assists, seven rebounds, three steals and one block, but he also shot 4-of-21 from the field for a season-low nine points. He also has a right pinky finger injury and both ailments were pre-existing before tonight's game. Fantasy owners should simply sit tight until the test results are disclosed. The Wizards are off until Saturday.
Jan 11 - 10:34 PM

John Wall hit 11-of-21 shots and a 3-pointer for 26 points, six rebounds, 14 assists, a steal and a block in Tuesday's 101-99 win over the Bulls. He also hit the game-winning shot with five seconds left on the clock.

Wall was brilliant tonight and has been for most of the season. He's double-doubled in three of his last five games and is fully healthy, so he should keep rolling until further notice. The game-winner was a beautiful 15-foot fadeaway that was never in doubt.
Jan 10 - 9:54 PM

John Wall scored 16 points on 7-of-15 shooting Sunday, to go with three boards, seven assists, one steal and five turnovers in 37 minutes.

Even with his 4.4 turnovers per game, Wall is a top-15 guy in standard 9-cat leagues with averages of 23.3 points (career-high), 4.4 boards, 10.2 assists, 2.3 steals (career-high) and 1.1 triples per contest on 46.6 percent shooting (also a career-high). In 8-cat leagues he ranks No. 7 overall, so apparently the concerns of him undergoing two knee surgeries (to each knee) this offseason were overinflated.
Jan 8 - 4:27 PM

John Wall scored 18 points with a season-high 18 assists in Friday's 112-105 win over the Wolves.

The win snapped a two-game losing streak for the Wizards. Wall took advantage of the great matchup and hit 8-of-16 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line with two boards, two steals, one triple and three turnovers in 40 minutes. The Eastern Conference Player of the Month for December gets a matchup with the Bucks on Sunday.
Jan 6 - 10:50 PM

John Wall scored 27 points on 10-of-19 shooting in Tuesday's loss to Dallas.

He was named the NBA’s Eastern Conference player of the month after leading the Wizards to a 10-5 record in December, averaging 24.5 points, 10.7 assists, 4.4 rebounds, 2.7 steals, 1.1 triples and 4.3 turnovers in that span. The Wizards dropped their second game in a row tonight, but Wall carried his weight with eight assists, four rebounds, three steals, one block and one triple while hitting all six of his free throws in 39 minutes.
Jan 3 - 11:14 PM

John Wall hit 8-of-18 shots for 18 points, five rebounds, 12 assists, two steals and five turnovers in Monday's loss to James Harden and the Rockets.

Wall has double-doubled in five straight games and has tallied 20 of them on the season. He's matchup proof and while he's not getting the attention that guys like Harden and Westbrook are, he's still in the midst of a very nice fantasy season.
Jan 2 - 11:13 PM

John Wall scored 19 points with 14 assists, two rebounds, one block, four steals and one 3-pointer in a 118-95 win over the Nets on Friday.

If you love fancy bounce passes, this game was for you. Wall just carved up the Nets with a ton of buckets in transition for the Wizards. Wall is also really shooting the ball well lately thanks to those transition scorer of his and he's not taking as many jumpers these days to help his consistency. He's having a really strong season despite getting surgery on both knees.
