Wall will sit out Friday's preseason finale against the Guangzhou Long-Lions for rest purposes, Zach Rosen of WashingtonWizards.com reports. Wall put together an absolute monster of a game Wednesday, posting 32 points (12-23 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 5-7 FG), nine assists, five rebounds, three steals and one block across 31 minutes. It was an impressive enough performance to the point where head coach Scott Brooks no longer needs to have his All-Star point guard play in the preseason. As a result, Wall will get the night off Friday and will then be ready for a full workload once the regular season opens next week.
Wall is not expected to play past the first quarter in Monday's preseason matchup against the Knicks, Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reports. Wall isn't dealing with any sort of injury, but the Wizards will do everything they can to keep his minutes down in an effort to have him as fresh as possible for the regular season. Considering the hefty playing time restrictions, Wall may be someone to avoid for those playing preseason DFS.
Wall scored 23 points (9-22 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT) to go along with eight assists, five rebounds, one steal and one block across 40 minutes during Friday's 102-92 loss to the Raptors. Wall struggled a bit from the floor, but he still delivered a solid all-around performance. He couldn't help his side through a dismal fourth quarter, however, as the visitors erased a five-point deficit and ended up winning by double-digits. Wall is hardly to blame for Washington's first-round exit, with strong averages of 26 points, 11.5 assists, 5.7 rebounds and 2.3 steals per game across six contests.
Wall scored 26 points (10-21 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 6-7 FT) to go along with nine rebounds, nine assists, three blocks and one steal across 44 minutes during Wednesday's 108-98 loss to the Raptors. Wall struggled a bit from beyond the arc, but he was on point in virtually every other aspect of his game as he just missed a triple-double. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough to pull off a road victory, so Washington will face their first elimination game Friday on home turf. Wall, who is averaging 26.6 points, 13.0 assists and three steals per game this series, will be central to his team's effort to prolong their postseason run.
Wall totaled 27 points (10-24 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 7-10 FT), 14 assists, six rebounds and three steals in 41 minutes during Sunday's 106-98 victory over the Raptors. Wall's line was eerily similar to his previous game and fortunately for the Wizards, the outcome matched the production. Wall has been excellent for the Wizards across the entire series and they have now managed to tie things up at 2-2. The team gets a couple of nights rest before hitting the floor in Toronto for a crucial Game Five.
