John Wall led the Wizards to a 117-109 win over the Magic on Monday, scoring 25 points with 10 assists for his third double-double of the season.
He was an efficient 9-of-15 from the field with four rebounds, one steal, one block and two triples, but did hit just 5-of-8 from the line with three turnovers. The Wizards have now won three out of their last five to improve to 4-9 and all of Wall's double-doubles have been in that span. Wall has been instrumental in Washington’s turnaround, averaging 23.2 points, 9.4 assists, 3.4 rebounds, 2.0 triples, 2.4 steals and 3.6 turnovers in his previous five November games. With games coming up against the Cavaliers and Nets, Washington could continue their climb from the bottom of the East. Nov 12 - 9:29 PM

John Wall scored a season-high 28 points during a 116-110 win over the Heat on Saturday, adding two rebounds, nine assists, one block, one steal and three 3-pointers in 41 minutes.

The Wizards badly needed this one after a bad loss to the Magic on Friday. Wall's minutes are soaring right now with 41-plus in each of his last three, and he's seen increased dimes and usage, as well. Angry Wall putting the team on his back is a positive for his fantasy value, so he'll look to keep it going in a rematch against the Magic on Monday.
Nov 10 - 11:49 PM

John Wall scored 19 points with seven rebounds, 12 assists, two steals, one block and three turnovers in 42 minutes during a 117-108 loss to the Magic on Friday.

That puts the Wizards at 2-9 and it's all about their defense right now. Their starting lineup was putting up a 113 defensive rating, so the Wizards have to play from behind and that actually helped Wall put up this strong line. Wall's stats should be better than they are and he's fourth in the NBA for potential assists, so his dimes should hit double digits more often like the did tonight.
Nov 9 - 9:28 PM

John Wall hit 8-of-20 shots and two 3-pointers for 24 points, four rebounds, a season-high 10 assists, three steals and a block in 41 minutes of Tuesday's loss to Dallas.

He finally ripped off his first double-double of the season, but the Wizards fell to 2-8 on the season, despite a great game by Otto Porter Jr. and a solid line from Dwight Howard and Wall. Wall's having a fine season, but the Wizards are still a bit of a mess. Things can only get better from here.
Nov 6 - 11:08 PM

John Wall hit 9-of-16 shots and three 3-pointers for 26 points (tied his season high), two rebounds, seven assists and a season-high five steals in 38 minutes of Sunday's 108-95 win over the Knicks.

Bradley Beal also played well with 22 points, eight rebounds and four blocks, and the Wizards finally snapped a five-game losing streak. The Knicks will probably cure a lot team ills this season, but the Wiz should have a good matchup against the Mavericks on Tuesday, as well.
Nov 4 - 9:07 PM

John Wall scored 19 points (8-of-13 FGs, 1-of-2 FTs) with two rebounds, nine assists, one steal, and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Thunder on Friday.

Wall also added seven turnovers in what was an ugly game for the Wiz. His numbers are in line with his career averages, but the team is just a mess right now. They're giving up a ton of points each night and aren't showing any signs of recovering. Regardless of all that, Wall is still producing for fantasy owners and will do so as long as he's healthy.
Nov 2 - 11:05 PM

John Wall shot 8-of-20 from the field on Sunday, scoring 18 points with five assists, four steals and three rebounds.

Wall didn't make a 3-pointer and the silver lining is that he racked up steals while committing just one turnover in 28 minutes. Prior to the game, Wizards head coach Scott Brooks emphasized defense as the key, but they lost 136-104 in L.A. tonight with the Clippers shooting 54.4% as a team. The Wizards are unintentionally tanking but it's safe to assume that Wall, Bradley Beal and Otto Porter will continue to check the necessary boxes for fantasy owners.

John Wall and Bradley Beal pubically called out teammates after Friday's embarrassing loss to the Kings.

The Wiz dropped to 1-4 on the season Friday night and tension appears to be building in the locker room. "We’ve got guys that’s worried about who’s getting shots. …You should never worry about that," said Wall. Brad Beal also had some harsh comments: "Sometimes, we have our own agendas on the floor, whether it’s complaining about shots, complaining about playing time, complaining about whatever it may be." Neither player mentioned Otto Porter by name, but coach Scott Brooks did, saying Porter "can’t worry about" his shots. Yikes. The Wizards next game is Sunday vs. the Clippers.
Oct 27 - 10:29 AM

John Wall broke out of a mini-slump on Friday vs. the Kings, scoring 26 points on 9-of-20 shots and 7-of-8 free throws with eight assists, two rebounds, three steals, three blocks, one triple and two turnovers.

It still wasn't enough though, as the Wizards imploded late and fell to 1-4 on the season. He came into tonight's game shooting 41.3% from the field and 68.4% from the line, but it was never a concern for him. "It takes time. It is what it is. I know I’m putting in all the work in and preparing myself for every game," Wall said. "You’re not going to make every shot. You just got to go there and be confident." We'll see if Wall and the Wizards can get a result in Los Angeles vs. the Clippers on Sunday, but a lot of Washington fans are already panicking.
Oct 27 - 12:48 AM

John Wall scored 16 points with nine assists, four rebounds, one block and one steal in Monday's 125-124 overtime win vs. Portland.

Walled banked in a jumper to give the Wizards a 125-121 lead, but bricked a pair of free throws shortly after. Luckily, he was bailed out by a clutch Otto Porter Jr. block. The counting stats were nice, but Wall's efficiency is hard to look at -- he hit 5-of-19 shots and 6-of-11 free throws with four turnovers. Hopefully this isn't a trend that continues, because all three of those categories (FG%, FT% and TOs) really held him back last season.
Oct 23 - 12:54 AM

John Wall scored 25 points with four rebounds, six assists, four steals, one block and four turnovers in 34 minutes against the Raptors on Saturday.

The migraines that caused him to miss shootaround didn't affect him in this one. Additionally, this was the first game Wall really exploded off the the dribble, which is a delightful sight after he mentioned he wasn't in game shape during the preseason. He'll be one of the best stat-stuffing players in the NBA, but he'll have some efficiency issues with all those possessions.
Oct 20 - 10:04 PM

John Wall (migraines) will play vs. Toronto on Saturday.

He didn't go through shootaround and he's played through migraines before. Wall looked like his old self in the opener with 26 points, and he'll likely be getting around 36 minutes again against Kyle Lowry.
Oct 20 - 5:27 PM

John Wall sat out of Saturday's shootaround due to migraines, but is expected to play Saturday night vs. the Raptors.

Wall has dealt with migraines throughout his career, having missed many practices and shootarounds. However, he typically is able to suit up and play come game time. We should have an update from coach Scott Brooks when Brooks speaks with the media at approximately 5:45 pm. If Wall is ruled out, Tomas Satoransky would draw the start and would be a very popular DFS play.
Oct 20 - 11:11 AM

John Wall scored 26 points with three rebounds, nine assists, one steal, three blocks and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes against the Heat during a 113-112 loss on Thursday.

It was a discouraging offseason for Wall, but he looked like his All-Star self as he leaned on his drives to get to a team-high 26. Wall's blocks weren't cheapies either and getting 36 minutes out of the gate is another positive despite this heartbreaking, last-second loss on a Kelly Olynyk bucket. Wall will be putting up big lines as long as he's healthy.
Oct 18 - 11:28 PM

John Wall will not play on Friday night.

He did play on Wednesday night in his best game of the month, logging 32 minutes for 32 points, five rebounds, nine assists, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers. Wall still doesn't look as fast as he usually does and he himself admitted he wasn't in great shape yet. His downside in nine-cat leagues is high due to turnovers and poor shooting, and even his injury history makes him risky in even points formats.
