Wizards' John Wall: Puts up 17 points in preseason win

Wall scored 17 points (5-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-6 FT) to go with five rebounds, four assists and three steals across 24 minutes in Tuesday's 96-91 preseason win over the Cavaliers.

Wall's accuracy from the free-throw line has been an issue in his four preseason appearances, with the point guard hitting only 8-of-16 attempts. Beyond that, Wall has looked like himself since returning from offseason surgery in both of his knees, averaging 11.2 points, 5.2 assists, 2.7 rebounds and 2.7 steals in 20.2 minutes per game. With the 26-year-old enduring no setbacks with either of his knees since making his preseason debut, Wall should be ready to take on a 35-minute-per-game workload when the regular season begins.
