John Wall (left Achilles) may not be able to play next season after tearing his Achilles.
Wall ended another frustrating year in Washington with top-35/75 value in 8/9-cat leagues (top-200/230 in total value), as his atrocious 3.8 turnovers per game really dragged down his appeal. The Kentucky product averaged 8.7 dimes per game this year, which is a six-year low. Wall also shot a ghastly .697 from the free throw line, and he’s now spent the last two seasons below 73 percent from the line after going 76 percent or better in each of his first seven years. Those big drops were more than enough to counteract his improvement from the field (.444, up from .420 a year prior). Wall battled left heel soreness throughout his 32 games before undergoing season-ending surgery in late December, and he would later rupture his left Achilles in a slip-and-fall incident at home while recovering from the first procedure. He won’t return to basketball activity until February 2020 and can be written off until the 2020-21 campaign.
