Looks like the John Wall I traded for! :D

Wizards have to be the least clutch team in the league.  Routinely throw away big leads and lose games they have no right losing.  

I thought Wall's return might steady the ship a little but nope.  They're still a**.

If you ignore the fact that the %'s were awful now for both of his games, he actually had a pretty nice line tonight.

 

Still, I'm with others... WTF?  The FT shooting has been an issue for him most of the season, and basically all of the progress he made last season has evaporated.

He’s just rusty, he’s not that bad of a FT shooter. He’ll get up to 75-80 before season’s end. He’s been away from game action for a while, so he’s trying to get his rhythm back. What matters is that he has made it out healthy, and the stocks are really encouraging. A PG who helps in blocks is rare. And the assists will come up once his PT increases again. We just gotta be patient.

I don't disagree with most of your post, but the FT shooting was a major issue even before he went out.  He seemed like he had corrected it for the last week or so before he went out, along with the rest of his game, but now the FT shooting is right back to the unexplainable (I doubt even Wall could tell you why).

 

I remember when he was healthy and I was watching games and actually dreading him going to the FT line, which is obviously not what I drafted.  I drafted a guy you could plug into your lineup and not have to worry about a thing.  I'm sure he'll get there at some point (not just the FT shooting), but the first year I've ever owned him couldn't be any more disappointing by Wall's standards.

Maybe this a good buy low. I'll trust the career numbers at the ft line and assume they normalize. FWIW he was very good at the line to start the season ( 82% the first 6 games). It's really been exasperated by 5 big negative games from the line. November 1st, 3rd, 5th...and then the last two games. I could be wrong, but we have a really large sample size of him being a more than capable ft shooter.,

Me too. It is worrisome. He hasn’t been right this year. I think the knee has affected his overall game across the board. It’s thrown off his rhythm. It’s hard to give 100% when you have constant pain. I’m sure his focus has been thrown off from that, and it’s been affecting his percentages. Maybe now that his knee is right, his percentages will trend upwards from here

His shoulder has been ailing him too. He's been closer to 50% healthy rather than 100%. I think he's a realistic shutdown candidate in the upcoming months. I wouldn't blame him either. He looks like he really needs the rest.

Too early to say that. He ain't getting shut down if Washington is in the playoff hunt.

Actually a borderline pretty good line tonight if you throw out the fact that he couldn't shoot in the second half.

His shooting will trend up, what matters is that the peripherals are there, and he's explosive again. and healthy! Hopefully it stays that way for ROS!

A monster triple double might happening. Rondo has no answer for him. He's slashing at will.

What’s happening here? 

Just going to assume he's injured because he's on my team. Seriously though 7:33 in the first half and no fouls, but nothing that I can find about an injury. Hopefully he's just sick or something. This guy has been a huge disappointment so far. 

 

Edit: Back to start the 2nd half, weird.
