They’ll be cautious with him, for sure, especially if they continue losing, but he should still put up numbers, I reckon he finishes top 50, but then again, I am his biggest fan outside of the states

On a per game basis, I think Wall actually has top-30 upside.

The question is, how often will he be playing throughout the rest of the year? I'm a Wizards fan and am hoping to see Wall look 100% healthy. When he has been on the court this year, he's looked just as explosive as he did 3 years ago. Because of this optimism, I think wall is a definite buy-low.

In the 81 minutes Wall has played with Harden off the court this season, Wall has a usage rate of 35.2 percent while posting averages of 26 points, 5.7 assists, 3 rebounds, 2.2 steals, and 2.2 blocks per 36 minutes.

Wall isn't going to average over 4 defensive stats a game, but I think he can come out of the season averaging 2.5. His assists should level out towards his career average of 9 per game as well. And it's very plausible to see him efficiently score 20 per game once this offensive unit of Wall, Wood, and Oladipo begin to jell.
