John Wall had the early line of the night with 28 points, five rebounds, 17 assists, a steal and three 3-pointers on 10-of-24 shooting in 43 minutes of Tuesday's thrilling win over the Knicks.
The 17 dimes aren't even a season high, as he had 19 of them back on Dec. 21, but he is rolling right now, double-doubling in four straight games and averaging 25.4 points, 6.2 rebounds, 11.0 assists, 1.8 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.2 3-pointers on 50 percent shooting in February. And in case that wasn't enough, he also committed just one turnover tonight in his 43 minutes. Feb 9 - 11:06 PM

John Wall triple-doubled against the 76ers during a 106-94 win on Friday, scoring 18 points with 13 rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, one block and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

The Wizards offense is starting to click again and going small is probably the reason why. Wall had a really tough cold spell last month and it's probably not a coincidence that's when the team went with Nene (calf) at power forward. Expect to see Wall put up some big lines going forward.
Feb 5 - 11:44 PM

John Wall's season-high 41 points were not enough during a 134-121 loss to the Warriors on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, three 3-pointers and three turnovers.

He was 17-of-25 from the field in his best game of the season. Wall was in a shooting slump over his previous 10 at just 39.4 percent, but he should come around with a more aggressive style these days. As for the team, the Wizards' defensive rating took a pretty big hit with 134 points allowed in regulation. Wall should flirt with first-round value going forward.
Feb 3 - 10:56 PM

John Wall lost his duel with Russell Westbrook on Monday vs. the Thunder, scoring 17 points with eight assists.

Westbrook finished with a triple-double, while Wall turned the ball over six times. He did add four boards, three blocks and two steals, but he shot just 7-of-17 from the field. Wall hasn't even been in the top-100 in standard leagues over his last five games despite averaging 15.8 points, 10.8 assists, 4.6 boards, 1.8 blocks and 1.6 steals, but it's mainly because he is shooting just 33.3 percent from the field in that span with 4.4 turnovers.
Feb 1 - 11:15 PM

John Wall led the Wizards to a 123-122 win over the Rockets on Saturday, scoring 19 points with 13 assists.

Wall is still in a major slump and is shooting just 34.6 percent from the filed in his last five games, and he was 7-of-22 in this one. Regardless, the Wizards snapped a three-game losing streak and are determined to get back into the playoff hunt, so Wall could have a monster finish to the season. He added eight boards, two blocks, one steal and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.
Jan 31 - 1:03 AM

John Wall double-doubled in Tuesday's blowout loss to the Raptors, scoring 18 points with 14 assists, two boards and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

Wall was outplayed by Kyle Lowry in this one and he finished with five turnovers and shot just 6-of-17 from the field. Regardless, Wall has recorded double-digit assists in five straight games and will have to be a lot more aggressive this week with Bradley Beal on the shelf with a broken nose and a concussion, so he could have some monster lines coming his way. Deploy him with confidence.
Jan 26 - 11:35 PM

John Wall made 3-of-11 from the field for eight points with two rebounds, 10 assists, one steal and two blocks in 33 minutes against the Celtics on Monday.

That's two single-digit scoring games in his last three games, but Wall does have double-digit dimes in four straight. After a wonderful December, Wall's averages are down in points, assists, rebounds, steals, free throw percentage, field goal percentage and 3-pointers in January. He gets a tough matchup against Kyle Lowry on Tuesday.
Jan 25 - 9:41 PM

The game between the Wizards and the Jazz on Saturday has been postponed.

The game has been cancelled due to inclement weather, but the NBA should announce when the game will be rescheduled soon. Plan your lineups accordingly.

John Wall bounced back from Monday's 4-of-17 shooting performance to finish Wednesday's game with 18 points (7-of-14 FGs, 3-of-3 FTs), 10 assists, four rebounds and one 3-pointer.

Wall felt he was "letting [his] team down" after Monday's defeat, but he paced his team to an easy and much-needed win tonight -- the Wizards had dropped five of their previous six games at the Verizon Center.
Jan 20 - 10:58 PM

John Wall was held to just nine points in Monday's loss to the Blazers, shooting just 4-of-17 from the field.

It wasn't all bad as Wall did have 10 assists, four boards, three steals and one 3-pointer, but he had nowhere to go but down after exploding for a season-high 36 points vs. the Celtics on Saturday. He is going to lose some shots with Bradley Beal's workload set to increase in about a week, but Wall is still a top-five point guard in fantasy.
Jan 18 - 5:20 PM

John Wall went bonkers during a 119-117 loss to the Celtics on Saturday, scoring a season-high 36 points with seven rebounds, 13 assists, one block, seven steals and one 3-pointer in 44 minutes.

He missed a layup with less than a second left, so this monster stat line was all four naught. Wall really shined while Bradley Beal (rest) was out, so that'll be something to watch as Beal's minutes start to increase. He's also been great effective on the glass with five straight games with five boards or more to go with eight-plus dimes per game, too. Wall is a top-10 guard in fantasy.
Jan 16 - 11:06 PM

John Wall's MRI on Thursday revealed a minor Grade 1 strain in his VMO muscle above his left leg.

The injury is very minor, and Wall was able to play through the issue on Friday with 28 points, seven rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes. He claims he is as healthy as he has been all season, so it doesn't sound like he is in jeopardy of missing any time. Wall is safe to leave in all active lineups.
Jan 16 - 10:44 AM

John Wall dominated the Pacers during a 118-104 win on Friday, scoring 28 points with seven rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes.

It was much better than his first game against them back on Nov. 24 when he turned the ball over eight times. Wall was slowing down slightly this month with 19.9 points per game on 42.6 percent from the field in his previous seven January games -- down from 22.6 points per in December. He's obviously one of the best fantasy guards out there.

John Wall (knee) will play Wednesday vs. the Bucks, as expected.

Wall recently said that he's having trouble bending his knee without it being sore, but he'll continue to fight through the pain, just like he always does. Go ahead and get him active for a favorable matchup against the Bucks.

John Wall says he is having trouble bending his knee without it being sore.

"I know you’re going to deal with nagging injuries throughout the year," Wall said on Saturday. "I’m perfectly fine with that. But it’s the ones that – I can’t even bend my knee without it being sore. So that’s the thing that gets frustrating." He will have an MRI on Thursday, but he is expected to play through the injury on Wednesday vs. the Bucks. If you have an open roster spot and you own Wall, it's not a bad idea to add Ramon Sessions just in case Wall misses any time.
