    John Wall (illness) did not participate in Friday's practice.

    The Wizards are the latest team to deal with a batch of illnesses this time of year, and there'll be more to come throughout the winter months. If Wall can't go tomorrow then Tomas Satoransky becomes a worthwhile stream.

    John Wall led the Wizards on Sunday as they rebuffed the siege laid by King James and his fellow Lakers, scoring 40 points with 14 assists, six boards, four triples, three steals and two blocks.

    Wall has been a top-6 contributor over the last week after being a top-25 value on the season. Wall was a lock for top-12 production before his injury-riddled campaign last season and could see his production rise back to those levels after getting Trevor Ariza integrated into the lineup.

    John Wall showed no ill-effects of his early-week heel injury on Friday, going 7-of-16 from the field en route to 17 points, 13 assists, a steal and a 3-pointer.

    Wall also looked good after getting his foot stepped on in Wednesday's game, so while he'll probably hit the injury report a few more times over the course of the season he should be deployed with confidence for now. The fact that he committed only two turnovers was also a nice bonus for 9-cat players, and the only thing keeping him from early-round value will be health concerns.

    John Wall was excellent in Wednesday's 125-130 overtime loss, returning from a one-game absence (left heel) to post 34 points, six rebounds, 13 assists, two steals, a block and a 3-pointer while shooting 14-of-26 from the field.

    It wasn't all roses, however, as Wall had his right foot stepped on in overtime. He checked out of the game immediately but was able to return after 45 seconds of game time. Wall says that his foot is merely "sore" but we'll keep an eye out for any updates tomorrow. The Wizards might want to tread carefully as he's now dealing with injuries to both feet. As long as Wall is on the court, however, he's an early-round fantasy play.

    John Wall went down hard in Wednesday's game against the Celtics and was in visible discomfort but was able to gingerly walk to the bench on his own power.

    Wall, and his knees have been an ominous cluster of storm clouds in his owners' horizon. This fall obviously is a concern. The takeaway and silver lining is that he walked to the bench on his own. Austin Rivers and Tomas Satoransky stand to benefit if he misses time.

    John Wall (heel) will start on Wednesday against the Celtics.

    Wall missed Monday's game with a heel issue that he's reportedly been dealing with for a while, so he's back in action tonight. The injury really limited him on Saturday so hopefully the few days of rest since then have served him well. Austin Rivers will return to the bench tonight.

    John Wall (heel) has been upgraded to probable ahead of Wednesday's game.

    Wall sat out on Monday but went through a pregame workout and he's been able to play through his heel injury in the past, so the Wizards might have their star guard back as soon as tomorrow. Austin Rivers will return to the bench and Wall can be plugged back into fantasy lineups, although he did have a rough game on Saturday prior to Monday's absence.

    John Wall (heel) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Celtics.

    Wall has been playing with this injury for a few games now plus he sat out two of the last three. This could become a season long issue and if the Wizards fall out of playoff contention we could be looking at a possible future shutdown. It would be wise to field offers for him as soon as he can string together a few good games.

    While John Wall isn't playing on Monday, Scott Brooks said he was able to do "a lot" of his usual pregame workout routine.

    Wall's bone spurs sound like they'll require him to spend some time on the sidelines but the Wizards are treating him as day-to-day and he's been playing through similar issues for over a year, so perhaps he'll be able to return to the court relatively quickly. Those of you who added Austin Rivers may only be looking at short-term value, though this situation will remain pretty fluid until the Wizards give a firm timetable for Wall.

    John Wall (heel) has been ruled out of Monday's game versus the Pacers.

    Wall was questionable entering Saturday's game with an illness and wound up playing. He was clearly in pain and following the game Wall mentioned a bone spur in his heel that was bothering him. Tomas Satoransky and Austin Rivers will fill in at point guard and are worth a speculative add, while Bradley Beal and Otto Porter divide up the rest of Wall's massive usage. There is no word to just how long Wall will be out, but this sounds like it could linger without rest.

    John Wall (heel) sat out Sunday's practice and is listed as doubtful for Monday's game.

    Wall missed shootaround yesterday with an illness and is feeling better, but his heel issues continue to bother him. He clearly wasn't himself last night and said after the game that he couldn't really move, so Wall might be looking at some time on the sidelines. Tomas Satoransky and Austin Rivers are the big beneficiaries, with Satoransky the higher-upside option.

    When asked what was wrong with his left heel, John Wall said, "t’s just like a bone spur… I probably shouldn’t have played, that’s my fault."

    Wall finished with one point in 26 minutes on Saturday night and clearly wasn't healthy. While it's nice of him to admit that, we can't fathom what the training staff was thinking in letting him play tonight. Wall said that the injury was the main culprit behind his awful game, too, saying, "I couldn’t move. You seen me out there. You know me, Can Dance. I really couldn’t move, couldn’t run. But I mean, you still got to play better." Wall could become a headache for fantasy owners here, and it's probably wise to keep Tomas Satoransky and Austin Rivers close by in case the Wizards give their star point guard some time off. It's an issue that he's dealt with going back to last season. Wall also added that he's uncertain to play on Monday, and will see how he's feeling after treatment.

    John Wall returned from a one-game absence on Saturday night but may as well have sat out, going 0-for-5 from the field and splitting his trip to the free throw line for one point, four rebounds and six assists in 26 minutes of action.

    You would be forgiven for expecting a down game from Wall after he missed Wednesday's game and sat out Friday's practice, but this was a bit excessive. The Wizards got waxed by Cleveland tonight and this group of players may not be together much longer. Wall's fantasy value shouldn't be affected much either way, but with the team playing so awfully he's more prone to duds than he has been in years past. Austin Rivers returned to the bench for this one and posted 6-3-3 in 26 minutes.

    John Wall (illness) will return to the lineup for Saturday's game vs. Cleveland.

    Wall did not play Wednesday for personal reasons and did not practice Friday, but he is good to go for Saturday. Austin Rivers and Tomas Satoranksy both take hits with Wall's return.
