John Wall scored 25 points with 13 assists in Monday's 118-113 win over the Nets.
The win snaps a two-game losing streak for the Wizards. Wall was a limited participant at practice on Sunday due to a thigh contusion, but he sure looked healthy on Monday. He shot 10-of-19 from the field with one rebound, three steals, one triple and four turnovers while hitting all four of his free throws. He did play 36 minutes, so it will be interesting to see if the Wizards decide to limit his minutes against the Magic on Tuesday for the second night of a back-to-back set. Dec 5 - 10:44 PM

Updating a previous report, John Wall was a limited participant during Sunday's practice.

An initial report said that Wall didn't practice at all, but apparently he went through some things. He's dealing with some standard nicks and bruises that players pick up over the course of an NBA season, but he should be good to go for Monday's game in Brooklyn.
Dec 4 - 5:39 PM

John Wall (rest) sat out of practice on Sunday.

He is a little "banged up" with a thigh contusion, but the Wizards are just managing his reps in practice to keep him fresh for the games. He also missed a practice on Thursday and ended up scoring 17 points with 15 dimes against the Spurs on Friday. He's fine.
Dec 4 - 1:58 PM

John Wall scored 17 points on 8-of-16 shooting with 15 assists in Friday's loss to the Spurs.

This was his second game in a row with 15 dimes and he added two rebounds, three steals and one triple in 37 minutes. Wall did miss practice on Thursday, but the Wizards are just managing his reps to keep him fresh for the games. The Wizards are only 6-12, so they will need to turn things around in order for Wall's fantasy value to be safe when it matters the most.
Dec 3 - 2:12 AM

John Wall was given the day off for practice on Thursday.

He's fine after playing 44 minutes against the Thunder on Wednesday. The Wizards wanted to keep Wall's minutes down, but that hasn't happened with his 40.2 per game over his last five. He also led the team in usage rate over that span with a 43.1 assist percentage. He'll get plenty of minutes against the Spurs on Friday.
Dec 1 - 3:15 PM

John Wall played 44 minutes against the Thunder on Wednesday with 15 points, six boards, 15 assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers.

The Wizards probably should've had this game with a seven-point lead with four minutes left. After the loss, Wall said this was the toughest loss of the season, which may hurt even more for coach Scott Brooks against his former team. Wall getting 44 minutes tonight clearly indicates the Wizards have no intention of limiting him right now.
Dec 1 - 12:23 AM

John Wall (left knee) was a limited participant during shootaround, but said that he's planning on playing Wednesday vs. the Thunder.

Wall spent most of shootaround getting treatment on his surgically repaired left knee, but it doesn't sound like he's planning on missing Wednesday's game against his head coach's former team. We'll have official confirmation closer to tip-off, but owners in season-long settings can probably go ahead and just get him active.
Nov 30 - 1:18 PM

John Wall had 19 points, 11 assists and 11 turnovers for the kind of triple-double NBA players don't love posting on Monday night.

He hit 6-of-16 shots, a 3-pointer and 6-of-6 free throws, and added eight rebounds, three steals and a block, so his line was still nice despite the 11 turns. Maybe he was just getting jealous of Russell Westbrook's 5.4 TOs per game, and Wall came in at 4.2 per game. He's having a nice season and his knee seems to be holding up well, so things are still looking up for Wall.
Nov 28 - 11:53 PM

John Wall said his surgically-repaired knees feel fine despite his increased workload.

"I feel fine," Wall said "Just doing everything I'm supposed to do, treatment, cold tub, all that. I feel fine. Just would've been better if we got both wins." He played in both games of the back-to-back set and has played 37 or more minutes in four straight games, so the Wizards are playing with fire. Wall will try to keep up his momentum against the Kings on Monday.
Nov 28 - 9:40 AM

John Wall played 37 minutes against the Spurs during a 112-100 loss on Saturday, scoring 21 points with three rebounds, five assists, one steal and four turnovers.

Before the game, coach Scott Brooks said he was not expecting big minutes for his studs, but he obviously doesn't trust his bench enough to limit Wall following 39 minutes on Friday. The Wizards only have one back-to-back with a set on Dec. 5-6 as their only one for almost the next four weeks, so Wall shouldn't have to worry about limits too much.
Nov 26 - 9:47 PM

Coach Scott Brooks said not to expect big minutes for his key players on Saturday.

This is pretty obvious after Wall played 39 minutes on Friday when he had his minutes monitored. He's obviously locked and loaded for season-long leagues, but DFS owners may only want to look for him to play minutes around 30-33.
Nov 26 - 5:34 PM

John Wall scored 26 points during a 94-91 win over the Magic on Friday, adding seven rebounds, 10 assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in a game-high 39 minutes.

Yeah, so what minutes monitor was coach Scott Brooks using here? Wall was expected to have his minutes held in check tonight on the front end of a back-to-back, so you can bet he has some sort of minutes restriction against the Spurs on Saturday night. Wall is still expected to play, but expect him to be closer to 30 than 40.
Nov 25 - 10:18 PM

John Wall will have his minutes monitored on the front end of a back-to-back on Friday.

The Wizards get the Magic tonight and the Spurs at home on Saturday. In the last back-to-back, Wall played 24 minutes on the front end and 31 minutes on the back end back on Nov. 16 and 17. His minutes should still be a little higher and close to 30. Start him in season-long, but he's a slight risk in DFS at his high price tag.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Wall is now best avoided in DFS contests this evening, but his minutes being monitored does make a few other Wizards more appealing. Bradley Beal has seen a ton of run since returning from his own injury, playing at least 40 minutes in each of the last two games, scoring no fewer than 45 FPs. He's a great bet for 35-38 minutes again tonight, making him an elite mid-range target at the SG spot. Markieff Morris and Otto Porter are also more attractive as a result of this news.
Nov 25 - 6:01 PM

John Wall hit just 6-of-24 shots and 1-of-5 3-pointers for 18 points, but also added a season-high 15 assists, four steals and three blocks in Monday's win over the Suns.

The points were nearly a season low, but when you add in the fact he committed just two turnovers on such a busy night, the line is pretty phenomenal. Yeah, your field goal percentage took a decent hit, but you also gained in most other categories if you're a Wall owner. The minutes restriction is gone and Wall looks like he's as healthy as he's been in a long time.
Nov 22 - 1:02 AM

John Wall wasn't on a minutes limit for his surgically-repaired knee and played 37 of them, finishing with a season-high 34 points, three rebounds, eight assists and a season-high five 3-pointers in Saturday's loss to the Heat.

He's cooking, scoring at least 23 points in his lsat four games and shooting a ridiculous 50 percent in the month of November. He hit 12-of-23 shots tonight, but struggled at the line, hitting just 5-of-8 attempts. His knee is still a small concern for owners, but he's only missed two games thus far and the fact he wasn't on a minutes count is a good thing.
