John Wall Expected To Return Against The Sixers

New, 1 comment

It's been a little while since we have seen John Wall on the basketball court. The sprained foot he suffered against Chicago about a week ago has kept him out of the lineup for the last few games, and the Wizards have certainly missed his presence. But now that is coming to an end. According to Michael Lee of the Washington Post, Wall is ready to return to the lineup on Tuesday against the 76ers.

Saunders said Wall told him he was a "little sore" after practice and wasn't sure who would comprise his starting back court if Wall is healthy enough to play. "Haven't thought about that, will worry about it when the time comes. We're going to wait and see, play it by ear and see how it feels and what our medical people think."

So it sounds like Wall is ready to play, but that he isn't totally and completely healthy. The foot is one of the most important parts of the body to a basketball player, and if Wall's foot is still giving him some trouble, it could mean that his play suffers a little bit. If the training staff thinks he's healthy enough to be out there I may be proved wrong, but I'm not accepting him to be at full speed when he gets back on the court.

It should be noted that the Wizards still list him as a game-time decision.
