It's encouraging. I traded Green and Dinwiddie to get him, so I want him 100%. He's special, I hope the knee holds up for ROS. 

 

I also traded Green to get him. I am  hoping he comes back 100 %

 

11/25/17 John Wall G Knee Expected to be out until at least Dec 9

i drafted john wall 11th overall and i would re-tear my acl from excitement if some1 offered me anthony davis for him 

well this news further f**k me up since I have gobert conley on my IR and a millsap in my roster as well....

How is that insane? Lots of leagues don't have run-away playoff locks and teams need to compete every week to sneak in. Most leagues are in the midst of their playoffs and Wall does return it will lik

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.

Mid-Dec seems like a good bet barring any setbacks.

Schedule is also the reason why target is Wednesday. They finish their road trip Tuesday, so makes sense to get him back Wednesday in a home game, and also avoid back to back in return. I'm fine with that

 

Agreed.

 

Wiz actually have 4 games next week. I might put Wall in my weekly lineup (predicting he might play 3/4 games), same amount as my current sub Collison (3 games).

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 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.

It'll have been a little longer than expected, but I'm just glad he'll finally be back really soon.  Donovan Mitchell has really helped make up for the loss of Wall while he's been out, but it will still be great to have him back and then have a pretty dangerous PG duo.

Same here brother. I just traded for Lonzo Ball too. Those 3 should be fun together!

The wait is over fellas (hopefully)! Tonight I have a drink to healthy knees and lots of assists and steals

 

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

Amen to that!

Just ruined my FT for the week!

You can get your percentages up, quit whining, what matters is that he got through this game unscathed. Look at the bigger picture. He's healthy now, that's what matters. He has top 10-15 ROS upside. 4 free throws ain't gonna kill your season.
