Wizards' John Wall: Not expected back if NBA returns

Wall (Achilles) isn't expected to take the court for the Wizards if the NBA resumes this season, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports.

Multiple members of the organization had already implied that Wall won't play in 2019-20, and the NBA's ongoing suspension due to the coronavirus pandemic apparently hasn't changed that line of thinking. Buckner notes that Wall has looked good in controlled environments during his recovery, but the league's suspension has left the point guard unable to simulate the intensity of his usual rehab workouts due to social distancing requirements. Team doctors would advise against quickly throwing him into games if the season resumed.
