John wall scored 17 of his 34 points in the fourth quarter during a 103-101 loss to the Pacers on Wednesday, adding four rebounds, six assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers.
That's four losses in a row for the Wizards and they're back to playing some sub-par basketball after a nice run last week. As for Wall, he only scored 10.0 points per game in his previous two on horrific shooting, so at least his fantasy owners are happy with this game. With Bradley Beal (ankle) possibly out, we could see more big scoring lines from the All-Star. He'll get a favorable matchup at home against the Hornets on Friday. Mar 25 - 11:01 PM

Date:

John Wall sputtered vs. the Kings on Sunday with nine points, four rebounds, eight assists and one steal in 33 minutes.

He shot 3-of-10 from the field and lacked his usual energy, and none of his teammates picked up the slack in a lopsided loss to the Kings. Wall is allowed the occasional dud and he'll need to have a short memory as the Wizards travel to Golden State to finish their back-to-back set on Monday.
Mar 22 - 8:42 PM

John Wall (ankle) played in Friday's loss to the Clippers, scoring 19 points on 7-of-18 shooting (including a three) with six rebounds, 10 assists and one steal in 39 minutes.

Wall looked great and you'll probably see his 360-degree layup all over the highlight shows. He's rolling at the perfect time for fantasy owners.
Mar 21 - 3:03 AM

John Wall (ankle) will play against the Clippers on Friday night.

There was never really a doubt and the red-hot Wizards will get one of their toughest tests. Chris Paul has shut down a number of elite guards, so Wall might be cooling off from one of his best stretches of the season.
Mar 20 - 9:06 PM

John Wall (ankle) went through shootaround on Friday following an ankle tweak against the Jazz on Wednesday.

While the Wizards are on the road against the Clippers tonight, they're not in a back-to-back set. We think Wall will give it a go even though coach Randy Wittman has hinted that he could stagger the rest for his guys. The Wizards have a road-road back-to-back set coming up with a game in Sacramento on Sunday and in Golden State on Monday. Wall will carry a little more risk for both of those games.
Mar 20 - 2:53 PM

John Wall (ankle) sprained his ankle during Wednesday's win over the Jazz.

Wall sprained his ankle during the final minutes of Wednesday's win and his status for Friday's game against the Clippers is in question. "You know me. I want to play. I want to compete," Wall said. "I tied my shoe as tight as possible and ran it off. If it hurts afterwards I’ll get a day off tomorrow to rest. So it’s nothing." We'll update Wall's status as more information becomes available, but Ramon Sessions would likely be in line for the start if Wall is unable to suit up.
Mar 19 - 1:15 PM

John Wall continued to carry his team during an 88-84 win at Utah on Wednesday, making 9-of-13 from the field for 24 points with nine rebounds, six assists and four turnovers in 37 minutes.

That's five wins in a row for the Wizards and Wall is playing his best ball right now. In those wins, he's averaged 22.4 points, 6.4 boards, 8.8 assists, 1.2 blocks, 1.4 steals and 1.2 treys on 58.8 percent from the field and 83.3 percent from the line. He and Chris Paul are tied for the league lead with 10.0 dimes per game. Wall looks like he'll be on a lot of fantasy championship teams if he keeps this up.
Mar 19 - 1:52 AM

John Wall remained locked in during a 105-97 win over the Blazers on Monday, scoring 21 points with nine rebounds, 11 assists, two steals and two blocks in 41 minutes.

He has been on a roll in his last four, averaging 22.0 points, 5.8 boards, 9.5 assists, 1.8 steals, 1.5 blocks and 1.5 treys on 56.7 percent from the field. Most importantly for the Wizards, they won all four of those games. Although, they almost blew another huge lead again. Wall is finally redeeming himself after a month-long slump before this recent hot stretch.
Mar 16 - 9:51 PM

John Wall dominated against the Kings during a 113-97 win on Saturday, scoring 31 points with two rebounds, 12 assists, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers.

He made 9-of-15 from the field and 9-of-10 from the line to give him a tremendous 79.9 true shooting percentage. Since Wall said he wasn't himself last week, he has been on an absolute tear. In his last three, he averaged 22.3 points, 4.7 boards, 9.0 assists, 1.7 steals, 1.3 blocks and 2.0 treys on 64.9 percent from the field and 86.7 percent from the line. He's in NBA Jam "on fire" mode.
Mar 14 - 9:58 PM

John Wall said he felt disrespected by the Grizzlies decision to rest four of their best players for Thursday's nationally televised matchup with the Wizards.

"They sit them and I don’t know the reason why," said Wall. "I think we’re a team that’s on the rise and teams respect us now. I guess they don’t respect us and we went out there and played basketball the right way and tried to get a win no matter what." The benching of Memphis' stars predictably did not go well for the Grizzlies, and Wall let them have it, flirting with a triple-double while shooting a ridiculous 72.7 percent from the field. Wall has played very well in his previous two outings, and it appears the mini-slump from February is now behind him.
Mar 13 - 10:26 AM

John Wall was phenomenal against the Grizzlies on Thursday during an easy 107-87 win, scoring 21 points with seven rebounds, six assists, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer.

It was not all good just a week ago. However, Wall was fantastic on Monday during a win over the Hornets, but these two games do come with a grain of salt because he went against Mo Williams and Beno Udrih. Still, he has a little more confidence and his one-month slump may be over. His fantasy owners can finally stop dreading he has a bad game on a given night.
Mar 13 - 12:06 AM

John Wall looked much better against the Hornets during a 95-69 win on Monday, scoring 15 points with nine assists, five rebounds, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

His defense was superb and the Wizards allowed the fewest points in a game for them this season. Wall was also 7-of-11 from the line and had easy shots over Mo Williams all night. He won't get an easy matchup against the Grizzlies on Thursday, but this is a step in the right direction.
Mar 9 - 11:24 PM

Coach Steve Clifford said that using Michael Kidd-Gilchrist on John Wall for Monday's game isn't likely because Mo Williams isn't better off guarding Bradley Beal or Paul Pierce.

This is just a heads up to anyone looking to start Wall in a Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) game tonight. MKG was awesome on Sunday guarding Reggie Jackson in the second half and allowing him to score just four points after R-Jax dropped 21 before recess when MKG wasn't on him. Wall is in the midst of one of his worst two-game runs and has already admitted he's not right since the break. You're obviously starting him in season-long leagues and it's not a horrible idea to go against the grain and use Wall in daily leagues.
Mar 9 - 5:40 PM

John Wall said he hasn't been the same since the All-Star break.

He's right. While Randy Wittman chalks it up to some fatigue, Wall has really fallen off since coming out of the break. To Wall's credit, he's not offering excuses, but his accountability doesn't do anything for fantasy owners. Over nine games since the break, Wall is averaging a lousy 14.4 points, 4.3 boards, 9.8 assists and 1.4 steals on just 36.2 percent shooting.
Mar 9 - 1:14 PM

John Wall's offensive struggles continued against the Bucks on Saturday during a 95-81 loss, making 3-of-14 from the field for 11 points with nine rebounds, six assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

The Wizards are in a freefall right now and are now only 1.5 games up on the Bucks for the No. 5 seed. Wall scored just six points on 2-of-7 from the field on Friday and is in a shooting slump from outside. Back in January, he made 47.0 percent from the field, but that dropped to 40.8 percent in February. Basically every Wizard player had a poor game tonight, so hopefully they all bounce back against the Hornets on Monday.
