Kelly Oubre fouled his way into the starting lineup, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander posted a strong but confusing line, and Mitchell Robinson moved to the bench in favor of Enes Kanter.

John Wall was rolling on Saturday as he dropped 30 points on 12-of-24 shooting with five boards, nine dimes, three triples and one steal.
John Wall erased the bitter memory of his underwhelming 11-point performance on Friday with this gem. He's still a top-50 player in 9-cat but has a top-25 ceiling. That said, the Wizards are more lost than Hansel and Gretel right now, making any player on that team difficult to trust.

John Wall fell flat for the Wizards in Friday's 98-123 blowout loss to the Sixers as he tallied 11 points on 4-of-15 shooting with three rebounds, seven assists, a 3-pointer and three steals.
It was a rough night for many a Wizards player. Kelly Oubre Jr. started for Otto Porter Jr. (personal) and managed just six points on 2-of-10 shooting with six rebounds and one trey. Wall and Oubre have definitely seen better days, so just keep your fingers crossed that the Wizards sort things out soon.

John Wall tallied a big double-double with 36 points and 11 dimes in a 135-131 OT win over the Rockets on Monday along with three rebounds, two triples and two blocks.
Wall hit some big shots down the stretch and drew a couple offensive fouls from James Harden in overtime to help push the Wizards past the Rockets. Although the Wizards have a lot of off court issues, Wall is still the No. 39 player in 9-cat leagues on the year.

John Wall put up 22 points, seven rebounds, eight assists, a steal and a 3-pointer on Saturday and was seen icing his left ankle in the locker room after the game.
Apparently someone stepped on Wall's ankle tonight. It doesn't sound like it'll be an issue going forward but it's definitely something to keep an eye on just in case. He had the typical blemish of five turnovers tonight and also went 5-of-10 from the free throw line, though he also went 8-of-16 from the field. While Washington seems to be pulling up from their disaster spiral, Wall has been an early-round fantasy option from the jump this year. We're hopeful that he can improve as the team does.

John Wall scored 30 points on 9-of-24 shooting (5-of-12 3PTs, 7-of-10 FTs) with four rebounds, eight assists, two steals and two blocks over 41 minutes in the Wizards' 125-118 win over the Clippers on Tuesday.
The Wizards were down by 24 points and Twitter was burying them yet again, only to see them rally and win at home. Wall has been at the center of the drama and looks like the problem in Washington, and since he's the untradeable one he has to figure it out if they're going to right the ship. Everybody in this is expendable from a team perspective but as long as Wall is healthy and not doing anything too crazy, he should be an early round value.

John Wall was fined by the Wizards for cursing at Scott Brooks during a recent practice.
So, to recap: This morning Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Wizards would be willing to listed to trade offers for anyone on the roster, Shams Charania reports that the Wizards had a volatile practice that featured multiple verbal altercations, J. Michael reports that Bradley Beal has no interest in staying with the Wizards past his current contract and now Woj caps it off with Wall's fine. It's been a big day for the Wizards. Wall reportedly hit Brooks with "F— you" after the coach wanted the team to raise its intensity. Wall apologized to Brooks and his teammates shortly after. He's been able to maintain early-round fantasy value despite the dysfunction in Washington.

John Wall played well on Sunday but was seen on the bench for the entire fourth quarter as the Wizards were down big against the Blazers before losing 109-119.
Wall scored 24 points through three quarters with three blocks, three assists, three triples and three boards. He logged 31 minutes but Coach Brooks chose to keep Wall and Bradley Beal on the bench for the final frame. Beal only logged 26 minutes but was still productive with 12 points, four boards, three assists, two triples, a steal and a block.

John Wall made just 6-of-19 from the field for 16 points (one triple), seven assists, a steal and a block on Friday as the Wizards fell 115-104 to the visiting Nets.
This dud aside, Wall has been pretty good this year with top-25/30 value in 8/9-cat. As long as his knee holds up, he looks good to go this season assuming the team doesn’t implode from dysfunction. Bradley Beal also did his thing with 20 points (one 3), six boards, two assists and a block.

John Wall played 33 minutes on Monday in the 117-109 win over the Magic, scoring 25 points with 10 assists, four boards, two triples, a steal and a block.
Wall finally got his minutes down on Monday after logging three straight games with at least 41 minutes played. While the minutes are great Wall owners would prefer to see his minutes managed so that he can stay healthy all season long. The Wizards aren’t very good and Coach Brooks is likely coaching for his job at this point.

John Wall was great on Saturday night, helping the Wizards top the Heat by going 9-of-20 from the field in 41 minutes for 28 points, nine assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers.
Wall went 7-of-9 from the line and only committed two turnovers to round out a strong night overall. He's still sitting with early-round value as the Wizards struggled out of the gate, so perhaps he'll be able to put himself up into second-round territory if the team can get itself going. Bradley Beal chipped in 18 points on an economical 6-of-10 from the field as well, adding a steal, a block and two threes.

John Wall double-doubled with 19 points (no 3s) and 12 dimes to go with seven boards, two steals and a block as the Wizards fell to the Magic on Friday.
Wall is sitting tight with nice top-25/35 value in 8/9-cat and as long as his knees hold up, he’ll reward owners who took him on draft day. The Wizards went small after half-time and Kelly Oubre added 19 points (two triples), four boards and two steals and is a top-150 play for the year.

John Wall showed off his elite athleticism and feel for the game of basketball on Sunday against the Knicks with 26 points, five steals, three triples, seven assists and two boards on 9-of-16 shooting.
The Wizards needed to get the win tonight and they delivered against the Knicks. Wall has been a bit slow to start the season so it’s great to see such a dominant performance. He’s currently just inside the top-30 in 8-cat leagues but this should help propel him closer to the top-20 ranking that owners expect from Wall when healthy.

John Wall shot a surprising 9-of-15 on Tuesday night and put up 22 points, five rebounds, seven assists, three steals and four threes.
Wall had a great 8-cat night but his nine turnovers really take the shine off for 9-cat players. The Wizards are in a major slump and nobody seems to have any answers right now, as they dropped this one against a beatable opponent despite getting solid contributions from their three best players. It looks a lot like a chemistry issue for the Wizards these days, and Dwight Howard is about to throw himself back in the mix. It might be an eventful few weeks in Washington.

John Wall scored 18 points on 8-of-20 shooting with three rebounds and five assists in a blowout loss to the Clippers on Sunday.
He also had four steals in this game, but it was not one of Wall’s better games as the efficiency was not there for him. To be fair, no one on the Wizards played particularly well so Wall played well compared to the rest of his teammates. He is behind his ADP so far this season and looks slower than normal, but hopefully Wall can improve his play in the next few games.
