Wall was handled carefully in the preseason after offseason procedures on both knees, but he gradually worked up to 27 minutes in the
Wall accumulated 15 points (6-11 FG, 3-4 3Pt), 11 assists, seven rebounds and one assist in 27 minutes during Friday's 119-82 preseason win over the Raptors.
The Wizards were conservative with Wall's minutes in the preseason since he was coming off surgeries on both of his knees, but he closed out exhibition play on a high note and looks to be in usual form heading into Thursday's season opener against the Hawks. Health concerns may have deflated Wall's stock a bit in fantasy drafts this season, but he was plenty effective while playing through pain for most of 2015-16, and the procedures actually may prove beneficial in the long run.
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.
Wall is expected to play roughly 25-to-28 minutes in Tuesday's preseason game against the Cavaliers, Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reports.
After recovering from offseason procedures on both knees, Wall has played in the Wizards' last three preseason contests, gradually increasing his workload in each game. Wall played 22 minutes and finished with 11 points and four rebounds Saturday against Sacramento, and he's now slated to see his heaviest minutes load to date. Of course, his playing time will rise further once the preseason begins, but that 25-to-28-minute estimate should be enough to make Wall a reasonably valuable DFS option Tuesday night.
Wall registered nine points (4-11 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-6 FT), nine assists, three steals, two rebounds and one block across 19 minutes in Thursday's 100-79 preseason win over the 76ers.
While Wall's shooting -- particularly from the free-throw line -- left much to be desired, he was otherwise excellent during his time on the court, nearly churning out a double-double while playing less than half the game. Coach Scott Brooks gave Wall three more minutes than he had received in his preseason debut Monday against the Knicks, and the point guard should see his playing time expand in the Wizards' final three exhibition contests. After undergoing offseason surgeries on both knees, Wall carries a little more risk as a fantasy commodity, but he's still a respectable selection in the first or second round of most leagues.
