Wall (Achilles) is progressing well in his recovery from a ruptured left Achilles tendon, Ryan Homler of NBC Sports Washington reports. "I feel great, man," Wall said at Monday night's NBA Awards. "I'm doing a great job with my body, taking care of that."
The All-Star is still facing a length road to recovery, and the expectation remains that he'll miss much of the 2019-20 season after sitting out 50 games in 2018-19. Wall revealed that he plans to begin jogging within the next few weeks, and he's already to progressed to isolated movements like ladder steps and stand-up exercises. Even so, the former No. 1 overall pick cautioned that he won't attempt to come back before his body is fully ready. "Just taking my time and progressing and letting everything heal the right way so I don't force myself back and get another injury," Wall said.
Wall (Achilles) admitted Tuesday that he's not entirely sure whether he'll be able to play at any point in the 2019-20 season, the Associated Press reports. "I have no idea just yet. That's my goal...That's my mindset, where I'm pushing toward,'' he said. "But whenever the doctors clear me and get to that point, then I will know.''
Wall appeared in 32 games before undergoing season-ending surgery on his left heel in January. While recovering from that procedure, he ruptured his Achilles' tendon on the same foot in February when he fell at his home, an incident that required another surgery. Wall received a loose 12-month timeline for his recovery following the second surgery, which would essentially rule him out through at least the All-Star break next season. Even if Wall's rehab proceeds without any notable setbacks, the Wizards may prefer to have the star point guard turn his attention to getting fully healthy in advance of the 2020-21 campaign rather than playing only a handful of late-season games next spring.
Wall underwent surgery to repair his ruptured left Achilles on Tuesday and will be out for 12 months, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Even after undergoing the procedure, the Wizards are sticking with their initial recovery timetable for 12 months, which means the point guard likely won't be able to return to taking part in basketball activities until after the 2020 All-Star break. Thomas Satoransky will continue operating as Washington's starting point guard through the end of this regular season in Wall's absence.
Wall is scheduled to undergo surgery Tuesday to repair his ruptured left Achilles' tendon, Ava Wallace of The Washington Post reports.
Already sidelined for the rest of the 2018-19 season after undergoing surgery in Jan. 8 to address chronic pain in the same left heel, Wall will now require a more intricate procedure to fix the ruptured tendon. The upcoming surgery is expected to carry an 11-to-15-month recovery timeline, making it likely that Wall misses most if not all of the 2019-20 campaign. Tomas Satoransky has emerged as the Wizards' starting point guard and must-own fantasy player since Wall was shut down, and it's now increasingly likely that Washington looks to re-sign the 27-year-old when he hits free agency in July.
Wall is set to undergo surgery to repair a ruptured left Achilles' tendon, which he suffered after slipping and falling in his home. The point guard is expected to return to basketball activity in roughly 12 months.
Wall was already on the shelf after undergoing surgery in early January to address a chronic Achilles/heel issue, and this latest development will push back his timetable even further and will likely keep him out for most -- if not all -- of the upcoming season. It's a crushing development for the Wizards, who had initially hoped to have Wall back around the start of training camp, but with the surgery slated for next week, the point guard likely won't be back on the practice floor until around the 2019-20 All-Star break, per Candace Buckner of The Washington Post. While the five-time All-Star has been productive when healthy, the extension he signed in the summer of 2017 now represents a significant albatross for Washington, as Wall is set to earn an average of $42.3 million over the next four seasons, the final of which carries a colossal $46.9 million player option.
Wall underwent surgery Tuesday to address his left heel injury, Ben Standig of NBC Sports Washington reports.
As was reported a little over a week ago, Wall's procedure will carry a recovery timetable of 6-to-8 months and officially ends his season. Tomas Satoransky has taken over as the Wizards' starting point guard while Wall has been sidelined for the past six games, averaging 12.2 points (on 48.2 percent shooting from the field), 4.7 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.5 three-pointers and 1.0 steal in 32.2 minutes per contest during that stretch. Wall should be back to full strength for training camp in advance of the 2019-20 season.
Wall will undergo season-ending surgery next week to address a chronic Achilles tendon injury in his left heel, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
Wall has been dealing with heel pain for the past few years, and it's finally reached a point where the star point guard will go under the knife to resolve the issue. The six-to-eight month timetable means Wall will be out for the remainder of the 2018-19 campaign and will still be rehabbing over the summer with hopes of being completely healthy heading into his age 28 season. While he's out of the lineup, Tomas Satoransky will presumably be the Wizards' starting point guard and is worth a pickup in most fantasy formats. Bradley Beal should also see a noticable bump in usage. Despite playoff aspirations, Washington finds themselves 10 games under .500 and the 11th seed in the Eastern Conference prior to Saturday's games. Trade rumors regarding Beal and Otto Porter Jr. were prominent earlier in the year when the team was slow out of the gate, and it seems more likely than ever that the pair will be floated out in offers.
Wall (heel) is contemplating surgery, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports. If he were to go through with the procedure, Wall would be sidelined for six-to-eight months.
This is a serious development for Wall and the Wizards, who have clear playoff aspirations following the offseason signing of Dwight Howard and the recent trade for veteran wing Trevor Ariza. It's not immediately clear what kind of recovery Wall would go through should he not elect for surgery, but he's been periodically missing games since early December. If the point guard chooses to go under the knife, his season would essentially be over. In that case, Tomas Satoransky would presumably take over as Washington's starting point guard.
Wall (heel) will not play Saturday against the Hornets.
As expected, the Wizards will play it safe with Wall as he visits a specialist to address his heel injury. During Friday's game with Wall out, Tomas Satoransky started at point guard and played 39 minutes, while Bradley Beal posted 34 points, seven rebounds, five assists and two steals across 38 minutes.
Wall (heel) is doubtful for Saturday's game against the Hornets, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.
Wall sat out Friday as he continues to nurse a heel injury, and the Wizards indicated that he'll meet with a specialist to further examine the issue. As such, the expectation is that Wall will remain out Saturday, which would be his third absence in the last five games.
Wall (heel) has been definitively ruled out for Friday's game against Chicago, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports. He will also see a specialist regarding his injury, Ben Standig of NBC Sports Washington reports.
There had been some mixed reports on Wall's status for Friday's contest after he missed shootaround, but the Wizards have made it official that their start point guard will indeed be held out. He'll have a chance to return in the second half of a back-to-back Saturday against Charlotte, though his status seems murky at best considering his visit to a specialist.
Wall is listed as out Friday against the Bulls due to a sore left heel.
Despite earlier reports indicating Wall would play despite missing shootaround, the NBA's official injury report lists the point guard as out. With a game Saturday against the Hornets, it's possible the Wizards want Wall healthier for the more difficult game on the second half of a back-to-back. Assuming Wall is out, Tomas Satoransky would probably draw the start at point guard and make for a low-cost DFS option.
Wall didn't attend Friday's morning shootaround but he's still fully expected to play later in the night against Chicago, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
The Wizards are labeling Wall's absence from shootaround as scheduled rest, which makes sense given that he's averaged just under 35 minutes per game so far in the month of December.
Wall notched 21 points (9-19 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight assists, seven rebounds and one block across 38 minutes in Wednesday's 106-95 loss to the Pistons.
Wall returned from an illness Sunday and posted just seven points, so seeing a 20-point game after his absence is encouraging. What is discouraging, however, is the turnovers that Wall has committed lately, as six turnovers is his lowest total in the last three games.
Wall (illness) will play in Sunday's game against the Pacers.
Wall missed the last game for Washington with an illness, but as expected, he will play and start for Washington. Wall is averaging 21.2 points and 8.9 assists over 34.6 minutes per game.
The Wizards are listing Wall (illness) as probable for Sunday's game against the Pacers.
The star point guard's availability is always welcome news for Washington, but especially so one day after 149-146 triple-overtime win over the Suns. Backcourt running mate Bradley Beal (54 minutes) and fill-in point guard Tomas Satoransky (48 minutes) both saw significant playing time and could be fatigued for the second half of the back-to-back set, so Wall might not necessarily be eased back in after a one-game absence due to the illness. The Wizards should confirm Wall's availability shortly before the 5 p.m. EST tipoff.
Wall (illness) is out Saturday against the Suns, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
Wall is battling an illness that seems to have gotten worse throughout the day. The Wizards will hold him out Saturday in hopes he'll be available Sunday against the Pacers. Tomas Satoransky will draw the start against Phoenix.
Wall (illness) has been downgraded to a game-time decision for Saturday's matchup against the Suns, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
Wall was initially cleared to play while battling an illness, but it appears he's taken a turn for the worse. There's a chance he'll still take the court, but the situation is worth monitoring. If he's sidelined, Tomas Satoransky would probably draw the start at point guard.
Wall (illness) has been cleared to play Saturday against the Suns.
Wall and Markieff Morris both missed Friday's practice session because of an illness, but Wall wasn't listed on Washington's latest injury report. He should start and figures to take on his usual workload Saturday.
Wall was sidelined during Friday's practice due to an illness, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports.
Wall was joined by teammate Markieff Morris, who was also dealing with an illness. It's unclear how severe Wall's bug is, but the point guard should, for now, be considered questionable for Saturday's home game against the Suns. More clarity on Wall should come by Saturday morning at the latest.
