Wizards Offer Surprising John Wall Health Update

The Wizards offered a surprising John Wall health update this week.

Wall suffered a ruptured left Achilles tendon nearly a year ago. After having surgery to repair it, he was given an 11-to-15 month timetable for rehabbing it.

The general expectation has been that there was a very good chance he would not play this year.

As such, a lot of people have not really been paying attention to the All-Star guard’s recover process.

This past week, the team offered a surprising update on it: it’s going very well.

According NBC Sports Washington, Wall is now playing in three-on-three scrimmages. This is a natural step up from the running and dunking drills he had been doing up to this point.

Per the report, the Wizards are giving Wall two to three days off between scrimmages and keep him out of team shootarounds.

All of this progress has left many wondering if there is a chance Wall returns this year.

“I don’t know if he’s going to play this year,” Scott Brooks said.

“I don’t know if he’s not going to play. I just know that he’s going to take every day and make the best of it. When you do that, you eventually come back the way you need to be.”

The Wizards are currently 13-25 through 38 games and at No. 12 in the Eastern Conference.
