John Wall scored a playoff career-high 42 points during a series-clinching 115-99 win over the Hawks on Friday, adding one rebound, eight assists, four steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 44 minutes.
After all the smack talk in this series, Wall was pumped to get the win on the Hawks' floor. He was waving goodbye to the fans and he looked to be talking smack to Atlanta Falcons All-Pro receiver Julio Jones in the front row. Wall is playing extremely well and basically did whatever he wanted in a favorable matchup. Moving forward, he actually did struggle against the Celtics, averaging 17.8 points, 8.3 assists, 2.3 steals and 0.5 treys. If he plays like he has lately, he'll still be unguardable.

John Wall made 10-of-12 from the field for 29 points in a 116-98 loss to the Hawks on Saturday, adding four rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

He didn't get much help with Bradley Bealy only scoring 12 points on 6-of-20 from the field. The other four starters only combined for 30 in this game, as well. The Wizards starters were absolutely smashing in this series for the first two games, but the slow start led to their undoing. Wall's usage rate should be higher in Game 4 and he may try to put the team on his back even more than usual.

John Wall stated during a recent interview that Scott Brooks brought a lot of confidence to the team during his first year as head coach of the Wizards.

"He’s brought a lot of confidence," said Wall of Brooks. "He makes sure that everyone is confident and believes that we can compete against anybody. We all work really hard to improve and he has helped us with that too." Wall posted career-highs in points (23.1), assists (10.7), steals (2.0) and field goal percentage (45.1) this season, and it sounds like he's attributing a lot of that success to Brooks and the new system he's installed in Washington.

John Wall posted a 32-point, 14-assist double-double during the Wizards' Game 1 win over the Hawks on Sunday, adding four boards, two 3-pointers, one block and three turnovers in 37 minutes.

Wall became just the third player in Wizards' history to score 30 points and dish out 10 assists in a playoff game, joining Gilbert Arenas and Archie Clark. Wall acknowledged prior to the game that he still holds a bit of a grudge against Dennis Schroder for Schroder telling his teammates to slap at Wall’s badly fractured wrist during their 2015 second-round series, and Wall got some revenge against Schroder with a highlight-reel chase down block during the first half of action (link below).

John Wall (quad) is not on the injury report for Game 1 against the Hawks on Sunday.

Wall played in 78 regular-season games games, but missed the final two contests due to some soreness in his quad. He hasn't played since Apr. 8 and should be well rested, so don't expect him to have any restrictions this afternoon. In four games vs. the Hawks this season, Wall averaged 18.5 points, 8.8 assists, 5.3 rebounds, 2.5 steals, 0.8 blocks and 0.8 triples.

John Wall (quad) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Heat.

This isn't surprising at all with the Wizards locked in as the No. 4 seed, and Wall dealing with an actual injury (although a minor one). Wall will be just fine for the postseason, but it doesn't make sense for him to risk the quad getting worse in a meaningless game. Brandon Jennings figures to earn the start in his place tonight, with Trey Burke and Tomas Satoransky seeing some increased opportunity with the second unit.

John Wall (quad) and Otto Porter (back) have been ruled out for Monday's game against the Pistons.

The Wizards are locked in as the No. 4 seed out East, so these guys might not play over Washington's final two games. Brandon Jennings and Kelly Oubre will move into the starting five with both these guys on the sidelines, and Scott Brooks said that Tomas Satoransky will be earning "extended" minutes. Bradley Beal figures to be very busy on offense tonight.

John Wall is a game-time call on Monday vs. the Pistons due to a sore quad.

Coach Scott Brooks said that the starters will play limited minutes on Monday as the Wizards prepare for the playoffs, so even if Wall is able to go, DFS owners might want to look elsewhere. If Wall sits this one out to rest, Brandon Jennings will be a solid punt option in DFS and season-long owners can give him a look if they need to stream some assists in the final week of the season. In Wall's words, his injury is "super sore" and "sensitive."

John Wall dominated after halftime vs. Charlotte on Tuesday, finishing a 118-111 home victory with 23 points (8-of-15 FGs, 4-of-5 FTs), 13 assists, six steals and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

Wall had 14 points and six dimes in the third quarter alone, which shifted the tide. After the game, Wall said that coach Scott Brooks will decide whether he's rested down the stretch. "[I've] missed too many games in my career already," he said. "Rest don't mean nothing right now. I want to play as many games as I can ... That's got to be coach's decision, because I wouldn't say it." Washington doesn't have any back-to-back sets remaining, which works to his favor.

John Wall finished with 15 points, 11 assists, five rebounds and a steal over 27 minutes in Sunday's 139-115 loss at Golden State.

Wall now has the franchise record for the most assists in a single season. He also moved into the franchise's top spot for career assists and steals this season. It's been quite a campaign for Wall this year and he isn't close to being done. While those numbers are nice, he was outplayed by Steph Curry in Sunday's showdown and shows he still has a ways to go before measuring up with the game's MVP candidates. He is averaging just 15.5 points per game over the past two outings, apparently hitting a bit of a wall, no pun intended, after a lengthy road trip.
Apr 2 - 11:32 PM

John Wall scored 41 points against the Clippers during a 133-124 loss on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, eight assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.

It's the most points he's scored on the road in his career, but the Wizards couldn't stop a nosebleed on defense during this loss. Wall's scoring is through the roof these days with at least 34 points in three straight while he's also seen 3.0 steals per game and plenty of other stats along the way. While the Wizards can't defend right now, Wall's fantasy owners have to be loving these high-scoring, fast-paced games.

John Wall lit up the Lakers for 34 points and 14 assists in Tuesday's 119-108 win.

Trailing by 13 points entering the fourth, the Wizards outscored the Lakers 37-13 in the final quarter. Wall finished 14-of-25 from the field and 5-of-5 from the line with three rebounds, four steals and one triple in 37 minutes, improving the Wizards to 30-12 since the new year. The Wizards play three more times this week against the Clippers on Wednesday, the Jazz on Friday and the Warriors on Sunday.
Mar 29 - 1:24 AM

John Wall scored 37 points during a 127-115 win over the Cavs on Saturday, adding four rebounds, 11 assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers.

He was red hot and made his first seven shots from the field during this win. Wall and the Wizards just dominated in the paint with 58 points from that range, and they also had a 27-4 advantage in fast-break points during this win. The Wizards are within shouting distance for the top seed and are just 2.5 behind the Cavs while they're 2.0 behind Boston for No. 2. Wall's shot is back with two efficient games in a row, so his owners can expect monster stat lines with four games this week.
Mar 25 - 11:02 PM

John Wall, Bradley Beal, Otto Porter, Markieff Morris and Marcin Gortat will start against the Cavs on Saturday.

Wall looks like he's good to go and didn't have a water jug as he arrived to the arena this time around. Get him in your lineup and feel free to have high expectations, especially with a thin second unit lacking Bojan Bogdanovic (back).
Mar 25 - 7:17 PM

John Wall (migraine) needed just 24 minutes to score 22 points during a 129-108 win over the Nets on Friday, adding four rebounds, nine assist and one steal.

Thankfully, the Wizards had this game in hand early to limit Wall's playing time. Wall said he's dealt with migraines in the past and he took a nap until about 4:30. He had a gallon of water as he arrived to the arena and warmed up wearing a hoodie. The Wizards have a massive game in Cleveland on Saturday, so hopefully Wall will be back to 100 percent.
