The Wizards have ruled John Wall out of Saturday’s game though he’s expected to participate in another full practice when the team practices on Monday, per Candace Buckner of the Washington Post.
Wall will miss his eighth straight game but is nearing a return, as evidenced by his increased workload in practices. Tim Frazier and Tomas Satoransky haven’t done much with their opportunity while Wall was out and will soon go back to the bench. The All-Star might need a couple games to shake off the rust and make sure his knee can withstand the rigors of NBA action but owners should be prepared to get him back in lineups as soon as next week.
