John Wall 2017-2018 Season Outlook

Recommended Posts

John Wall (knee) has been riding a bike to improve his cardio.
He's ahead of schedule, but he is not going to rush back. Wall is expected to be out 6-8 weeks, so that should mean he'll be looking at a late-March return. Tomas Satoransky has been terrific as the starting PG while Bradley Beal continues to distribute the ball and run the offense more often. Mar 1 - 2:56 PM

The fourth week has passed in John Wall’s rehabilitation and the Washington Wizards’ all-star guard is set to return to the hardwood for low-intensity shooting.

“On the court soon,” Wizards Coach Scott Brooks said before Friday night’s game regarding Wall’s progress. “Probably today or tomorrow [Saturday]. It’s very light shooting.”

Since the procedure, Wall has run on an anti-gravity treadmill and pedaled on an elliptical bike, according to Brooks. However, the imminent shooting workouts will mark the first time that Wall will get on the court.

“He’s progressing,” Brooks said, then referenced Wall’s recovery schedule. “I don’t know when. The timeline said six to eight [weeks], you never know. That’s smart people guessing, an educated guess. Hopefully it’s some time in between that.”

Don't have an IR spot, but if hes only about a week and a half to 2 weeks away it wouldn't be a bad idea. Plus he says he feels like hes ahead of schedule. So im thinking hey may come back at the 6 week mark.

But that means you will be holding an injured player into Frist week of PO

Do they have any incentive not to ease him back in though?

 

Seeding /chemistry reps - but he should still be more useful in 20-25 mins than 30+ mpg of an end of bench  / low usage guy like Agustin, Hill, Mudiay.

 

Playoffs start late (2 weeks from now, next week x2) in my leagues though

Safely have a first round bye with playoffs starting next week. Low risk high reward pickup. If he comes back by the end of next week it's found money. If not I'll drop for a streamer.

John Wall (knee) did some light shooting on Tuesday.

Scott Brooks said that Wall "moved around pretty good" in his first time getting back on the court since going under the knife in January, so this was a small step in the right direction. If all goes well, Wall's earliest possible return date would be on March 13 for a home game against the Timberwolves. He's worth stashing if you've got an open IR-spot.

Think it's bordering on negligent listing the earliest possible return date as March 13 (while true in a technical sense, there's next to no chance of that happening given his current status and timetable).

Yeah not sure why Rotoworld reports this earliest return date as the 13th when the team just announced on the 2nd that he'll be out between another 2-4 weeks.  2 weeks (short end) would put him out until the 16th which would have him playing on the 17th against Pacers at earliest not the 13th.

There's always conflicting reports, besides they also stated that he is ahead of schedule. So the 13th would be great.

Wizards guard John Wall joined the team in Miami and participated in a rigorous on-court workout before the game.

During his physical trial that lasted longer than 30 minutes, Wall showed a range of activity. In one drill, Wall attempted floaters in the paint while elevating off one foot. Later, he sprinted from sideline to sideline and lofted jump shots. Wall ended the workout by attempting corner threes until his teammates ran on the court for pregame warmups 15 minutes before the playing of the national anthem.   Although Wednesday will mark the sixth week since Wall had left knee surgery, Brooks said he will not return by that date. The team set the original timeline of recovery for six to eight weeks.

On Wednesday, as the Wizards play in Boston on the second night of a back-to-back set, Wall will reach the six-week marker of his rehab timeline. The team will not practice after consecutive games, but Brooks said Wall could still get in another workout with coaches and team staffers. Wall would have to wait until Friday to potentially practice in a five-on-five setting.  “We’ll have a practice at the end of the week,” Brooks said, “and if everything continues to go in the right direction, he’ll be there.”  The number of games that Wall will play, however, is not as certain.   

Beginning Tuesday when the Wizards host the Minnesota Timberwolves, only 15 games remain in the regular season. Because it’s already expected that Wall will not return this week, he will have a dozen games left to prepare for a possible postseason run. To Brooks, the number of games does not matter — the team is more concerned about getting Wall comfortable again.
