John Wall and Marcin Gortat met privately last week to confront each other about where they stood with one another, according to Chris Hayes of ESPN.
After a victory over the Raptors back on Feb. 1, the team's third straight win with Wall sidelined due to knee surgery, Gortat tweeted: "Great 'team' victory." Last week, during an appearance on SportsCenter, Wall replied, "It was more just shock to hear it from him, understanding he gets the most assists from me and the most spoon-fed baskets ever." Per the ESPN report: "The meeting, which didn't last long, facilitated the airing of grievances, but sources say there is still more work to be done to fully repair that relationship."

John Wall (knee) is expected to remain on crutches for about another week.

"I’m not a doctor," coach Scott Brooks said. "I know our guys are good and he’s diligent in his rehab and he’s been in here every day. He’s on crutches, I’m assuming, for another week. Maybe a little longer." He's limited to work on an AlterG antigravity treadmill for now, and based on his original timetable of 6-8 weeks, we won't see him on the court again until mid-March at the earliest. Luckily for the Wizards, Tomas Satoransky has been outstanding.

John Wall will undergo a "clean up" procedure on his left knee on Wednesday and will be sidelined for 6-8 weeks.

Wall did not play Sunday after it was revealed that he was dealing with a recurrence of soreness and swelling in his left knee. Wall flew to Cleveland on Monday to get a second opinion from the doctor who performed his original knee surgery in 2016. A decision has now been made to have the knee scoped. The first report from The Washington Post indicated that Wall would miss six weeks. However, Woj tweeted out that Wall could be sidelined for two months. Tomas Satoransky and Tim Frazier will divvy up minutes at point guard in Wall's absence.

John Wall (left knee) is doubtful to play Tuesday vs. the Thunder.

Wall underwent an MRI on Monday, but the results of that have not been made public and he's currently headed to Cleveland where he'll receive a second opinion on the knee that required a PRP injection earlier in the year from the doctor who performed his original knee surgery in 2016; so there's some cause for concern here. If Wall can't play Tuesday, Tomas Satoransky would have the opportunity to start and he'd be on the radar as a potential streamer.

As expected, John Wall (knee) did not practice on Monday.

Wall is currently in Cleveland getting a second opinion on his sore left knee. He received platelet-rich plasma injections to reduce the inflammation in his left knee back in late November which sidelined him for nine games, but he's currently listed as day-to-day and should be considered questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Thunder. If Wall can't go, Tomas Satoransky would be worth a look as a streaming option after scoring 11 points with seven assists in his last start.

John Wall (sore left knee) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. Atlanta.

Wall received platelet-rich plasma injections to reduce the inflammation in his left knee back in late November, which caused him to miss a total of nine games. He has started each of the 21 games the Wizards have played since. However, per coach Scott Brooks, Wall has dealt with left knee issues during this Wizards current road trip, and it became evident Thursday in OKC that "something was wrong." Brooks said Wall is day-to-day. Wall said he plans to travel to Cleveland next Monday to get a second opinion on the knee. Tomas Satoransky will start at PG on Saturday.
Jan 27 - 12:12 PM

John Wall made 7-of-16 from the field for 21 points with one rebound, 12 assists, one block, two steals and five 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Thunder on Thursday.

Garbage time helped him out here with three 3-pointers in the final 2:02 of this loss. If not for those nine points, it could've been four consecutive games when Wall didn't score more than 16 points. Wall is prone to slumps and it looks like he doesn't have a chance to match his career-high 45.1 percent from the field from last season -- he's at 41.7 percent on this season. He's still a near lock for early-round value with his stat-stuffing ways.
Jan 25 - 10:47 PM

John Wall hit 4-of-15 shots for 11 points, Bradley Beal hit 4-of-14 shots and three 3-pointers for 18 points, and the Wizards' starters combined to hit just 14-of-52 shots (27%) in an ugly 98-75 loss to the Mavericks on Monday.

The bench wasn't much better and the Wizards hit just 31 percent of their shots in the blowout loss. Hopefully shots are falling against the Thunder on Thursday, and hopefully Wall's migraine is a distant memory by then. He was iffy coming in because of it, but was able to play. And the migraine likely explains at least part of the poor performance for Wall and his teammates tonight.
Jan 23 - 12:00 AM

John Wall (migraine) is listed in the starting lineup for Monday's game vs. Dallas.

He missed the morning shootaround and was a game-time call, meaning he's probably not 100 percent. His season-long owners should deploy him and hope for the best, and be sure to check back after the game to see how he fares.
Jan 22 - 8:10 PM

John Wall (migraine) is now a game-time call vs. the Mavericks on Monday.

Wall missed the morning shootaround, but it didn't sound like his status was in doubt. Maybe coach Scott Brooks just wants him to go through warmups first, but DFS owners will have to be careful here. If wall can't go, Tim Frazier and Tomas Satoransky will benefit, while Bradley Beal will see a bump in usage.

John Wall (illness) is expected to play vs. the Mavericks on Monday.

Wall missed the morning shootaround, but it sounds like the Wizards were just playing it safe. He's a little risky in DFS, but his season-long owners can deploy him in their lineups. We'll have an update after warmups.
Jan 22 - 1:33 PM

John Wall posted 16 points and 11 assists over 37 minutes in Friday's road victory against the Pistons.

Wall hit 6-of-15 from the field, including 2-of-5 from behind the 3-point line, while also chipping in with three boards and a steal. It wasn't all great, as he had five turnovers, but apparently Scott Brooks liked the effort enough. The head coach warned of changes in minutes coming if the effort wasn't there, but Wall had 37 minutes and is apparently not in the doghouse.
Jan 19 - 11:19 PM

John Wall went 7-of-22 from the field and 12-of-13 from the line on his way to 27 points, four boards, nine dimes, one triple, three steals, two blocks and four turnovers in 41 minutes on Monday.

Wall has finally been trending in a positive direction over the past few weeks, posting averages of 25.9 points, 11.3 assists, 2.1 steals, 1.3 blocks, 1.4 triples and 5.3 turnovers per contest on 44.2% shooting from the field and 70.7% from the stripe, which has been good enough for top-15 value when punting turnovers. Wall hasn’t been great from the charity stripe this season, but as a career 78.5% shooting from the line, it should only be a matter of time until he’s draining those.

John Wall finished with 23 points while tying a season high with 16 assists over 40 minutes in Saturday's overtime victory against the Nets.

Wall wasn't the big star on Polish Heritage Night in D.C., as that honor belonged to Marcin Gortat. But Wall made it a successful night and sent the home crowd home happy. If you're wondering what sixteen is in Polish, and who wouldn't be, it's 'szesnascie'. Wall has managed nine or more assists in each of his six January outings, and seven in a row. His six-game run with at least one blocked shot came to an end, however.
Jan 13 - 10:34 PM

John Wall connected for 30 points, nine assists, three rebounds, three blocked shots and a steal over 36 minutes in Friday's 125-119 win against the Magic.

Wall appeared to roll his ankle in the second quarter, but he started the second half an didn't appear to be playing with any limitations in the final two quarters. After an off shooting night last Saturday against Milwaukee, Wall has bounced back with a pair of 30-plus performances, averaging 32.5 points, 10.0 assists, 2.0 blocked shots, 2.0 steals and 4.5 rebounds per game.
