John Wall (left knee) returned to action on Wednesday with 13 points, four assists, two steals, one rebound, one block and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes of action.
Wall is 2 1/2 weeks removed from platelet-rich plasma and viscosupplementation injections in his left knee, which were intended to reduce inflammation. He was limited to minutes in the "mid 20s" tonight, which we expect will steadily increase over the Wizards' next few games. Tim Frazier and Tomas Satoransky barely held value in deep leagues while Wall was out, and neither guy belongs on fantasy rosters now that he's back. Dec 13 - 11:50 PM

John Wall (knee) is expected to play minutes in the mid 20s against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

He's been going through some on-court work since the weekend, but the Wizards certainly don't want to rush Wall back. With him returning, Tomas Satoransky is still expected to play and could get minutes on the wing. Bradley Beal and Otto Porter will also have some help after getting extra usage. Get Wall in your lineup for season long, but he's probably not a reliable play in DFS.

John Wall (knee) is "very likely" to play Wednesday against the Grizzlies, according to sources of Candace Buckner of The Washington Post.

David Aldridge reported on Tuesday that "all signs point" towards Wall getting back to the court for Wednesday's game, and Wall posted a picture to his Instagram account this morning that read "the wolf is awoke," so things are trending in a very positive direction here. There won't be a shootaround with this being the second game of a back-to-back set, so we likely won't get official confirmation until just prior to tip-off, but it looks like Tim Frazier will be heading back to the bench tonight.

John Wall (knee) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Nets.

"We'll give him another day of rest and see how he feels tomorrow," said head coach Scott Brooks. David Aldridge reported today that "all signs point" towards Wall getting back to the court for Wednesday's home game against the Grizzlies, but with that being the second game of a back-to-back set, there won't be a shootaround so we likely won't get official word until just prior to tip-off. Tim Frazier and Tomas Satoransky will split the point guard minutes sans Wall on Tuesday.

According to NBA reporter David Aldridge, "all signs point" to John Wall (knee) returning for Wednesday's game vs. Memphis.

Wall was upgraded from "out" to "questionable" Tuesday's game vs. the Nets, but Wednesday still seemed like the more practical return date. Assuming Wall sits out Tuesday's contest, Tim Frazier is expected to draw another start, with Tomas Satoransky likely logging 20-plus minutes off the bench.

John Wall (knee) has been upgraded to questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Nets.

Wall, who has missed eight straight games, has been making solid progress of late, including a full 5-of-5 practice last Friday. However, he was initially listed as "out" in the injury report released by the Wizards on Monday, which makes this "questionable" tag quite surprising. Nonetheless, we will have to wait to hear from Coach Scott Brooks for a more reliable update. If Wall can return, Tim Frazier will get bumped back to the bench, and Tomas Satoransky will see his minutes reduced as well.
Dec 12 - 10:41 AM

John Wall (knee) was a full participant during Tuesday's practice, but head coach Scott Brook wouldn't commit to having him available for Tuesday's game in Brooklyn.

This is the second report we have of Wall going through a full-contact practice without issue, and while he's being listed as "out" in the game notes for Tuesday's matchup in Brooklyn, Brooks playing coy with his availability indicates that he could be cleared. We should get another update following Tuesday morning's shootaround, but the Wizards might not want to bring Wall back for a road game on a back-to-back set. If he's out again, Tim Frazier and Tomas Satoransky will split the PG minutes.

John Wall (knee) is listed as out for Tuesday's game vs. the Nets

Wall went through a 5-on-5 practice on Friday, but he wasn't expected to return during Washington's road trip. Wall is reportedly targeting a return on Wednesday vs. the Grizzlies, so it's possible that his fantasy owners will be able to deploy three out of four times this week. Once he's cleared, Tim Frazier and Tomas Satoransky can be dropped in most leagues.

John Wall (knee) went through a 5-on-5 practice on Friday, but he will still not play against the Clippers on Saturday.

He said his knee "felt great" after the work, and an earlier report said Tuesday is also unlikely to happen, but Wednesday could be his target date. Back on Nov. 25, the Wizards announced Wall was expected to miss two weeks for his PRP treatment on his ailing knee, so he's just a shade behind schedule. For Saturday, Brad Beal will look to stay red hot against a defense that is getting ripped apart as Tim Frazier and Tomas Satoransky get the minutes at the point.
Dec 8 - 5:10 PM

John Wall (knee) isn't ready to return for Saturday's game vs. the Clippers or Tuesday's game vs. the Nets according to Candace Buckner of the Washington Post.

He has progressed to participating in half-court shooting and running drills, and Buckner adds that we could see Wall return as soon as Wednesday's game vs. the Grizzlies when the Wizards return home from their road trip. That would be a little later than his two-week timetable, but coach Scott Brooks said he's progressing well and that "he’s checked off all the boxes" in his rehab so far. His fantasy owners just need to hang in there for another week or so.
Dec 7 - 9:47 PM

John Wall (knee) has yet to practice or go through shootaround, which coach Scott Brooks wanted Wall to do before returning.

In other words, don't expect to see him play vs. the Suns on Thursday. Wall did do an individual workout with Wizards coaches after Thursday's shootaround, so that's a step in the right direction. His next chance to play comes Saturday vs. the Clippers -- in the meantime it will be Tim Frazier and Tomas Satoransky at the PG spot, with Bradley Beal handling the bulk of the offense.

John Wall (left knee) was working out with Wizards coaches after Thursday's shootaround.

We don't know what specific activities Wall was doing, and there's been no clear return date given, so we continue to await substantial updates. His original two-week timetable would have him back this weekend -- the Wizards play the Clippers on Saturday, so maybe that's a possibility. Tim Frazier and Tomas Satoransky have both failed to accrue standard-league value in Wall's absence.
Dec 7 - 2:23 PM

John Wall (knee) indicated that he doesn't have a return date in mind.

"I kind of really don't know yet," Wall said. "I'm just taking it day-by-day." Wall had a checkup on Friday, but we haven't heard any details about it. He was given a timetable of approximately two weeks on Nov. 25, so hopefully we'll see him back on the court next week. Tim Frazier hasn't played well in Wall's absence, but Tomas Satoransky is starting to make some noise with 14.5 points per game over his last two.

John Wall (knee) will receive platelet-rich plasma and viscosupplementation injections to reduce the inflammation in his left knee and is expected to miss approximately two weeks.

The Wizards announced on Saturday that Wall underwent an MRI exam on Friday after experiencing left knee discomfort and inflammation due to knee-to-knee contact in the team’s game on November 7th. Wizards physicians felt the PRP and other injections were the best course of action. Tim Frazier is expected to start in place of Wall. Frazier has started two games previously this season and averaged 5.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 8.0 assists in 33.5 minutes per game over those two starts.

John Wall (left knee) had an MRI on Friday and the results have not yet been revealed.

This left knee issue seems to have been bothering Wall for a good portion of this month and he will be questionable for Saturday. Hopefully, this is just a precaution, but obviously taking the time to get an MRI does show that Wall's knee is just not right at this time. Hopefully, we'll have an update later today. If you're in a deeper league, it's not a bad idea to add Tim Frazier until Wall gets the all clear.
