Coach Scott Brooks said Wall (Achilles) will not return to the court until he's "ready to play 100 percent," Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reports.
This isn't exactly a groundbreaking quote from Brooks, but it sounds as though neither he nor the Wizards have much of a timetable for Wall's return. While Brooks said he's not resigned to the fact that Wall will miss the entire season, the star guard is working back from a major injury that typically requires nearly a full calendar year of recovery. "I don't know if he's going to play this year," Brooks admitted. "There's a good chance he misses most of the season, if not all of the season." Sep 30 10:46 am (EST)
- Wizards managing partner Ted Leonsis said Monday that he doesn't expect Wall (Achilles) to play for the team at any point in the 2019-20 season, Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington reports. "Our highest-paid player, our five-time All-Star, may not play at all next year. He probably won't play at all next year," Leonsis said, when asked about Wall's outlook.
- 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."
- 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.'' All John Wall News
