Wondering when John Wall will return to the floor for the Washington Wizards? It looks like it could be soon.
Let’s get one things clear. The NBA is better when John Wall is playing meaningful basketball games. Unfortunately, the Washington Wizards have been without their All-Star point guard since December 26, 2018. Sadly, it has been over a year since we’ve seen Wall blow by his competition with an impressive blend of power and fluidity.
However, there is good news on the John Wall injury front. Thanks to some videos from Chase Hughes and Fred Katz, Wizards fans got a glimpse into the Wall’s rehab. By the looks of things going down in practice, rehab appears to be going great.
The biggest concern for Wall coming off of an Achilles tear is whether he’ll have the speed and explosiveness that set him apart during his first nine season in the NBA. Well, he looks pretty quick to me.
And the explosiveness? Well, he can still get up above the rim with relative ease.
Not enough? You want to see Wall working on that jumper while he’s sidelined. Oh, well he’s been doing that, too.
Stepback, check. But what about your range, John?! The NBA has changed and the three-pointer reigns supreme! Ok. No problem.
And even after more than 12 months without any NBA minutes, Wall still has an incredible feel for the game. Wall, who was averaging 8.7 assists per game when he went down last season, still makes the most incredible dimes look routine.
In case you forgot about John Wall during his extended absence, he’s here to remind you that he’s coming. And he is coming back with a vengeance. This is your last warning, NBA. Once John Wall gets back on the court, it is game over.
