John Wall (migraines, ankle, Achilles) will play against the Raptors on Saturday.
The Wizards had Garrett Temple with the first unit at shootaround, but Wall is going to suit up for this big game. The Raptors have been awful at defending point guards with Jarrett Jack's 35-point game coming on Friday, so Wall could be in for a productive night. His fantasy owners should have him locked and loaded. Jan 31 - 5:18 PM

John Wall (migraines) didn't participate in shootaround on Saturday, but teammates Bradley Beal and Garrett Temple believe that Wall will end up playing against the Raptors.

Wall is battling a couple of bum ankles, a sore Achilles and some mysterious migraines, so we will be sure to monitor his status very closely prior to tip-off. We will leave him on the injury report for now, but we still think that Wall will end up playing in this one. Should Wall miss any time in the future, Bradley Beal, Andre Miller and even Garrett Temple will all benefit. Stay tuned.

John Wall (migraines) said his goal is to suit up and play against the Raptors on Saturday.

"I’m used to getting through things but when you re-sprain it again it’s kind of aggravating when it’s on the verge of kind of getting better you gotta get back to step one again," Wall said. The Wizards have a huge game with playoff implications, so this probably isn't the game to rest. If he sits, expect to see more of Andre Miller with Bradley Beal running the offense more.

John Wall (ankle, head) will to meet with a doctor about his migraines on Friday.

Wall is already dealing with a balky right ankle, but his headaches are becoming the main issue as he's played his last two games through intense migraines. "It’s just been killing me, man, to be honest," Wall said before Wednesday's loss to the Suns. Wall has two days off before the Wizards play again on Saturday, but Andre Miller would be in line for a spot start if Wall can't suit up against the Raptors.

John Wall (ankle, Achilles, migraines) didn't have a great game against the Suns during a 106-98 loss on Wednesday, making 5-of-16 from the field for 11 points with seven boards, seven assists, one steal, two blocks, one 3-pointer and five turnovers.

He has been dealing with migraines for the past two weeks and he's dealing with some foot issues, as well. Wall and the Wizards had their four-game West Coast trip end tonight, so they'll head back home to face the Raptors on Saturday. While the Raptors have been struggling against PGs, Wall actually had one of his worst games against them with eight points earlier this season.
Jan 29 - 2:18 AM

John Wall will play against the Suns on Wednesday night.

There is no word of him being limited, so his fantasy owners can start him against his former Kentucky understudy, Eric Bledsoe. Wall should put up nice numbers in a game with a little faster pace than they're used to.
Jan 28 - 9:08 PM

John Wall is listed as questionable to face the Suns, but a team official said he thinks Wall will play.

He wasn't on the injury report for the pre-game notes, but the Wizards are going to entertain the idea of resting him again. He was supposed to have a minutes limit on Tuesday, but it didn't happen. Wall has an Achilles issue, a sore ankle, and migraines, so it's possible he sits. Owners in season-long leagues should start Wall tonight, but he's not a great DFS option.
Jan 28 - 5:21 PM

John Wall is reportedly dealing with a sore left Achilles, minor ankle sprains on both feet, and he was dealing with a migraine during Tuesday's game vs. the Lakers.

"He fought through a lot of different things," coach Randy Wittman said of Wall. "He's beat up a little bit. He's under the weather a little bit. But John loves playing. That's why I love that kid. It takes a lot for him to miss a game." To be clear, Wall is not expected to miss any time, but this simply speaks volumes of his toughness. Wall should get a chance to recover during the All-Star break, so his owners shouldn't be too concerned. Feel free to deploy Wall as normal for now, just be sure to stay tuned for updates.
Jan 28 - 10:20 AM

John Wall wasn't bothered by his sore Achilles on Tuesday, as he piled up 21 points on 8-of-12 FGs, nine rebounds, 13 assists in a comeback win vs. the Lakers.

He shot an unusually awful 5-of-12 at the FT line with four turnovers, but added three steals and it's all gravy for owners who weren't even sure if he'd suit up tonight. Wall has been perfectly durable over the past two seasons and his owners shouldn't fret about his minor ailment -- start him with confidence vs. the Suns on Wednesday.
Jan 28 - 1:41 AM

John Wall (sore Achilles) will start vs. the Lakers on Tuesday.

He was a game-time decision and the Wizards announced his availability literally a minute before the 10:30 start time. Fantasy owners who went out on a limb should expect at least three quarters of terrific production before the game gets out of hand, while those who gambled on Garrett Temple or Andre Miller are left regretting the decision.
Jan 27 - 10:29 PM

John Wall (sore left Achilles) did not participate during shootaround, and is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Lakers.

This is the first time we're hearing of any Achilles soreness for Wall, and we'll be monitoring his status closely. It's worth noting that Wall has yet to miss a game since the 2012-13 season, but with the Wizards going up against a hapless Lakers squad, there's certainly a chance Washington gives their franchise-player some rest tonight. Andre Miller would likely draw the start if Wall is forced to sit, with Bradley Beal also seeing some increased opportunity.
Jan 27 - 4:40 PM

John Wall led the Wizards to an overtime win in Denver on Sunday, scoring 19 points and dishing out 16 assists, one shy of his career high.

Wall made 8-of-16 shots including one 3-pointer and he was huge down the stretch, scoring or assisting on six of Washington's scoring plays. He added one steal with only two turnovers in tonight's high-scoring affair, and he's overtaken Ty Lawson for the league-lead in assists with 10.1 per game. When you eliminate turnovers from the equation, Wall's fantasy valuation leaps into the top-25.
Jan 25 - 11:02 PM

John Wall scored a team-high 25 points against the Blazers during a 103-96 loss on Saturday, adding four rebounds, nine assists and one steal.

It's his first 20-point game in his last five tries and it was also the first time he was above 50 percent from the field in that span, too. Wall's offensive numbers are going down a bit due to a drop in efficiency and usage rate, but he's still leading the NBA in assists per game with over two steals per game. He's a stud.
Jan 25 - 12:49 AM

John Wall handed out 13 assists against the Thunder during an 105-103 overtime loss on Wednesday, adding 18 points with six rebounds, four steals and two 3-pointers.

He moved into sole possession of assists per game and he's done a great job of passing. However, the scoring has fallen off since Bradley Beal has played big minutes. Since Beal played more than 35 minutes in his first game this season on Dec. 3, Wall has scored just 16.2 points with a usage rate of 23.8 and an effective field goal percentage of 51.2. Before that, Wall had a 26.8 usage, a 45.8 eFG% and 18.1 points per game. Regardless, he's a fantasy stud.
Jan 21 - 11:56 PM

John Wall had a mediocre game against the 76ers during a 110-76 win on Monday with 11 points, four rebounds, 10 assists, one steal, one block and five turnovers.

Wall's scoring has really fallen off in his last three, scoring just 11.7 points per game. He's also turning the ball over a little too often with at least three turnovers in each of his last nine games. There's a good chance this is his low point of the season.
