John Wall Sets Target Return to the Wizards Lineup
John Wall has yet to play during this season and the Washington Wizards are suffering greatly with a 3-23 record and last place in the Eastern Conference. The star point guard suffers from a stress injury to his left knee and although he hasn’t pinpointed an exact return date, he finally has a timetable. “My timetable is some time in January,” Wall told Yahoo! Sports on Wednesday night. “The way I am feeling with no pain, working out and doing it three [days straight] and it has no pain, I’m feeling good. I feel like I am taking the right steps and I haven’t had no pain the last couple of days after workouts.”
The determining factor for clearance to play?
“When I feel like I can run and do everything like I used to, cut, jump like I used to, run fast like I used to,” Wall said. “And I feel like I am getting closer and closer to those steps.” Do you think his impact will affect the NBA as much as a derrick rose return?
