According to coach Scott Brooks, there's a "good chance" that Wall will resume practicing Saturday, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports. Wall -- out since late January -- has remained limited to 5-on-0 work up until this point, but things have progressed well enough to where the team feels safe sending him back into a 5-on-5 format. He'll likely need to go through a few practices before ultimately being cleared to play, though if he does indeed start practicing Saturday, it seems within reason that he could return by the end of the month or in early April.
Coach Scott Brooks said the Wizards are hoping Wall (knee) will be cleared for 5-on-5 work by the end of the week, Chris Miller of NBC Sports Washington reports. To date, Wall has remained limited to 5-on-0 work, but Brooks noted that the point guard had his best workout on Sunday since undergoing knee surgery back in late-January. Wall, who has not played since Jan. 25, will likely need to log a couple of full-contact practices before returning to game action, but if he's able to play 5-on-5 by the end of the week, there's a chance he could be back on the floor for the Wizards before the calendar turns to April. Regardless, the hope is that Wall is able to log at least a handful of games before the start of the postseason, which seems likely, considering Washington plays six games between Apr. 1 and the end of the regular season on Apr. 11.
Wall (knee) went through 5-on-0 work with the Wizards' starters ahead of Monday's practice, Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reports. Wall reportedly put in about a 35-minute session with the team, with coach Scott Brooks saying afterwards that Wall "looked good." It appears he continues to ramp up his activity, though an official timetable for his eventual return isn't quite clear yet. Once Wall is given the green light for full-contact work, that should be an indicator that a return is forthcoming.
Wall (knee) is expected to participate in a pregame workout prior to Saturday's matchup with the Heat, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports. Wall is now traveling with the team and continues to make steady progress. He's finally beginning to ramp up his activity in an effort to make a return in mid-to-late March. Look for more updates on his status in the coming weeks as his anticipated return date approaches.
Wall (knee) was able to do some light shooting Tuesday and coach Scott Brooks said he was moving around "pretty good," Zach Rosen of WashingtonWizards.com reports. It's been roughly five weeks since Wall underwent a procedure on his left knee and with this recent news of him getting back on the court for some light shooting, it appears he continues to progress well in his recovery. The original expectation was that Wall would be cleared for a return in mid-to-late March, so look for him to continue to ramp up his activity over the next few weeks in anticipation of getting back to game action. That said, the Wizards likely won't rush Wall back in order to avoid any sort of setback for their superstar, so fantasy owners will have to continue to be patient with the recovery process. Wall's next step appears to be upping his drill work and potentially taking part in some limited contact, so look for another update once he's increased his activity once again.
