John Wall missed the last two weeks due to a left knee injury that has bothered him since early November. Though the Wizards are on a long road trip, Wall traveled with the team and participated in a full contact practice on Friday, according to Candace Buckner of The Washington Post. But that’s not all. Here’s what Wall said about his knee:
“It feels great. I had no problems,” Wall said of his knee. “I had no problems yesterday. I had no problems today getting through practice, and I’ll just take it day-by-day to see how it reacts doing something like this.”
Wall will miss Saturday’s game against the Clippers, but the Wizards will practice again on Monday before their game against the Nets on Tuesday. They then head back to Washington and host the Grizzlies on Wednesday.
As expected, John Wall is out today vs #Clippers and will miss his eighth straight game.— Candace Buckner (@CandaceDBuckner) December 9, 2017
Team has a practice Monday in NYC, and he'll likely participate in his second full team session at that point.
Though there’s no definite timetable for Wall’s return, there’s a good chance he’ll be back sometime next week. That will be a good thing indeed.
