Wall (knee) is no longer using crutches, Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reports.
Wall made the revelation during his media availability over All-Star Weekend, remarking that he's done with the crutches less than three weeks after undergoing surgery on his left knee. Still, Wall did not have much to say when asked to gauge when he might return to game action. "I really don't know because I'm just doing everything the doctors are telling me," Wall said. "I haven't really tried to get back on the court yet so, just doing the little things. And I haven't started running yet. So whenever I get to that point I can kind of start grasping stuff and understanding what level I'm at but right now it's between six-to-eight weeks. It might be longer but I don't know. I haven't got to that point." Wall went on to confirm that he'll begin traveling with the team after the All-Star break, but at this point it seems unlikely that he'll be back on the court until sometime in mid-to-late-March, at the earliest. Washington has 25 regular season games remaining, 14 of which will be played on their home court.
Updating a previous report, Wall's left knee procedure, which he will undergo Wednesday, is expected to sideline him for 6-to-8 weeks, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports.
The scope will be performed in Cleveland by the same surgeon that conducted surgeries on both of Wall's knees in May 2016. Though he's rarely been at full strength for the past season and a half, Wall hadn't missed significant time due to the knee issues, but the upcoming procedure could keep him off the court for up to two months. Wall's absence looms especially large with 16 of the Wizards' next 20 games coming against would-be playoff teams, so it wouldn't be surprising if Washington looked to the trade market to upgrade its options at point guard. For now, Tomas Satoransky looks poised to continue starting at the position, though he may share the minutes fairly equitably with Tim Frazier.
Wall is scheduled to undergo a cleanup procedure on his left knee Wednesday and is expected to miss the next six weeks, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports.
Wall, who previously underwent surgeries on both of his knees in 2016, experienced soreness in his left knee following the Wizards' Jan. 25 game against the Thunder and was sidelined for the team's last contest Saturday against the Hawks. After being evaluated by the doctor who performed his previous surgeries, it was determined that Wall will require a minor operation again, which will likely sideline him through mid-March. With an extended absence on tap for Wall, Tim Frazier, who tallied 14 assists across 27 minutes Saturday, and Tomas Satoransky should continue to split minutes at point guard, though it wouldn't be surprising if the Wizards explored the trade market to bolster their depth at the position.
Wall was held out of Saturday's game with soreness in his left knee, and all signs point to another absence Tuesday, though he hasn't officially been ruled out. The All-Star will fly to Cleveland on Monday for a second opinion on the knee, after which there should be some more clarity on the situation. As of now, expect Tomas Satoransky to make another start at point guard Tuesday.
Wall will not play in Saturday's game against the Hawks due to soreness in his left knee, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports.
This is the first we are hearing about a knee issue for Wall, so it is unclear how serious the injury is. The Wizards could simply be erring on the side of caution with their prized point guard in order to avoid a lingering issue. In his absence, Tomas Satoransky will fill in at point guard with the starting unit, but some combination of the other starters, especially Bradley Beal, will presumably be called on to fill Wall's offensive void. Expect an update on his status if the team provides more information on the injury. At this point, consider him be day-to-day going forward.
