    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.

    Per coach Scott Brooks, John Wall (illness) will be a game-time decision against the Cavs on Saturday.

    Wall traveled with the team but did not participate in shootaround as it is reported he is still under the weather. Austin Rivers started for Wall last game and put up nine points, seven rebounds and seven assists with one triple. Tomas Satoransky also benefited, playing 39 minutes in Wall's absence and scored 14 points with seven assists, four rebounds, two steals, a block and two triples.

    John Wall didn't practice on Friday and coach Scott Brooks was noncommittal on his status for Saturday's game.

    Wall missed the Wizards' last game as well with a personal issue. It appears as though he will be available on Saturday, but keep checking in on his status. Wall is killing owners with his percentages and turnovers but the upside is always there for elite production.

    John Wall is not in Atlanta and will not play tonight against the Hawks due to personal reasons.

    This comes out of nowhere and hopefully it translates to just a one-game absence for Wall. It remains to be seen who enters the starting lineup next to Bradley Beal and Tomas Satoransky but Kelly Oubre and Austin Rivers will most likely split up the minutes.

    According to Marc Berman of the NY Post, some in the league believe the Knicks are stocking up their young assets and will make a major play for John Wall if he becomes available.

    The Wizards are said to be ready to break it up after their disastrous start and for a deal to happen it would require a three-way scenario with the Knicks throwing in Frank Ntilikina, Damyean Dotson, Courtney Lee (for cap purposes), a 2020 first-round pick and a future second-round pick. This is obviously just a rumor but it makes sense as Wall’s extension kicks in next summer making it very hard for a team to trade for him. Wall is currently returning only top-50 value but his recent strong play suggests that better days might be ahead.

    John Wall struggled with his shot in Monday's win over the Knicks as he went 7-for-20 from the field but contributed in other areas as he finished with 18 points, 15 assists, one 3-pointer and one blocked shot.

    The Wizards have been better recently with back-to-back wins and better play from guys like Wall can be attributed to this success. Owners who've weathered the storm are crossing their fingers that this upward trend continues and that Wall can return to top-30 value.
