John Wall's Recent Struggles: Are You Concerned?

It's no secret that John Wall hasn't been all that amazing since the trade for Nene. Since Nene played his first game in D.C. eight games ago, here are Wall's numbers.

  • 11 points per game
  • 7.125 assists per game
  • 34 percent shooting
  • 5-33 on 16-23 foot jumpers
That's ... not good. It's enough to get Kyle Weidie concerned over at Truth About It. From last night's recap:

Are we being too hard on John Wall? Or is the reality further setting in that he hasn't put as much time into his own development that people hoped he would have. Part of it is kid-Wall, burst upon the scene as the sudden savior No. 1 selection of a paltry 2010 class, has been surrounded by toxic relations since his entry into the NBA. The other part is him. Wall came close to helping the Wizards steal one on the road in Toronto without Nene and Booker, but his game on this night was too much of a shrug-the-shoulders affair.

I'm a bit reluctant to put together a ton of conclusions here until I look at the tape a bit more, so I'm going to throw this one out to the community. How worried are you about Wall's struggles since the trade?
