Wall underwent procedures on both knees over the summer and is still recovering from surgery to remove bone spurs in his left knee. The point guard has been working in one-on-one and three-on-three settings of late, but the team will limit him to begin camp Tuesday, with new coach Scott Brooks telling the media that Wall take part in "some of our practice, not all." The
Wizards coach Scott Brooks indicated Wednesday that Wall's (knee) status for the start of training camp is uncertain, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports. "[Wall is] doing some one-on-one, he's doing some three-on-three. Not really worried about that," Brooks said, regarding the point guard's availability for camp. "Like all of our athletes, I want them to be ready but he's definitely moving towards that direction."
Wall underwent surgeries on both of his knees during the offseason after playing through most of the 2015-16 campaign at less than full health. While his right knee appears to be in sound condition based on reports earlier this summer, he's still recovering from the procedure on the left knee, which required the removal of a bone spur. It's generally expected that Wall will be ready to go by the time the regular season begins, but an extended absence during training camp could cause him to fall a few spots in fantasy drafts.
Wall (knee) is progressing well from offseason surgery, Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reports. "I just came from the doctor and I'm right where I'm supposed to be but I'm not in a rush," said Wall on Saturday.
Buckner reports that Wall has been working out twice a day and getting shots up, but he hasn't quite progressed to playing one-on-one. Still, the season is over a month away, so it's not unusual for a player like Wall to be taking a measured approach to his recovery in order to not push things too quickly. By every indication, Wall remains on schedule with his recovery.
Wall underwent surgery May 5 to address both of his knees, with the right one requiring some minor cleanup and the left one requiring the removal of a bone spur. The point guard appears to be further along in his recovery with the right knee than the left knee, but he's already been able to start doing some light basketball-related activities. Wall played most of last season while nursing sore knees, but still posted career-high averages in points (19.9), assists (10.2), rebounds (4.9) steals (1.9) and three-pointers (1.5). If he enters the 2016-17 season at full health as expected and is able to do a better job of avoiding the sort of recurring issues that dogged him the season before, Wall could take his production to even greater heights.
Wall (knee) is ahead of schedule in his recovery from offseason knee surgery, Todd Dybas of the Washington Times reports.
Wall underwent a procedure in early May to "excise calcific deposits in his patella tendon," and the expectation is he'll be healthy well in advance of the Wizards' training camp in the fall. Wall is an invitee to Team USA Training Camp at the end of the month, and at this point it seems unlikely he'll be able to participate. For what it's worth, Wall, himself, expressed back in August that he was not optimistic about his chances to make the final, 12-man roster that will head to Rio at the end of the summer.
