Washington Wizards point guard John Wall (migraine headache) is considered questionable for Friday's game versus the Brooklyn Nets. What It Means: Wall appears to be headed for a game-time decision after missing the Friday morning shootaround. The Wizards can afford to sit Wall against the Nets, which would create very appealing DFS opportunities for both Bradley Beal and Markieff Morris. Washington has one of the first tip-offs of the night, so Wall's status will be known before lineups lock. When Wall isn't on the floor this season, Beal's usage rate shoots up to 31.0...

The NBA’s latest celebration hits Washington John Wall took a page out of the Warriors playbook on Wednesday night and celebrated this Bradley Beal three-pointer before the ball even left his hands.Considering the Wizards were shooting around 20 percent from the three-point line at the time of the shot, the confidence from Wall was pretty impressive. That said, a couple of trips later down the floor Bradley Beal tried to return the celebration favor to Bojan Bogdanovic. Bogdanovic absolutely missed leaving Beal with his hands in the air for no reason.

Washington Wizards point guard John Wall (foot) will play Friday night against the Chicago Bulls. What It Means: Wall had been listed as probable and this news serves as confirmation he will suit up. He sprained his left foot on Wednesday, but was able to return to that game. Head coach Scott Brooks said that there will be "no limitations" on Wall. He should be deployed in all starting lineups as usual. Our models project Wall for 22.2 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 10.5 assists on 36.6 minutes on Friday. Source: Rotoworld.com

March Madness is still going down as we get closer to finding out which teams make the Final Four. And for the Wizards, we’re getting closer to seeing whether they’ll break the 50-win glass ceiling and/or their first division title since 1979 when this song was a cool tune to sing to, instead of a corny sports arena punch line. Anyway, let’s get to this week’s top stories: The Wizards split their games from last week Last Friday, John Wall dished 20 assists to lead the Wizards to a 112-107 win over the Bulls at home.

If the Wizards are going to improve defensively, it must start with John Wall

If the Wizards are going to improve defensively, it must start with John Wall

It’s no secret that the Wizards have been woeful on defense since the All-Star break. What was once considered a major strong suit for this team has turned into a glaring weakness overnight. Since the All-Star break, the Wizards rank 22nd in the league in Defensive Rating. There are several reasons why the defense has taken a hit over the past month but the most infuriating, yet most fixable reason, starts with the head of the snake; John Wall. Wall can be a top defender in this league when he’s engaged. But for whatever reason recently, there have been too many instances recently when...

The Read & React: Celtics rebound against Wiz

The Read & React: Celtics rebound against Wiz

Rebounding has been a weakness for the Celtics all year, but against the Wizards, they made it a strength. Attack of the glass eaters (Bill Sy): One of the Wizards’ strengths is getting out in transition with their speedster point guard John Wall. They’re fifth in the league in fast break points at 15.8, but like the Celtics, they’re one of the worst defensive rebounding teams in the NBA. Washington is 25th in rebounding percentage at 75.4% with Boston trailing just behind at 75.3%. The Celtics aren’t great on the offensive glass either; they rank 25th in OFFREB% at 21.2%. Last...

Celtics, Wizards downplay budding rivalry

Celtics, Wizards downplay budding rivalry

By all appearances, the Washington Wizards wore their normal attire for last night’s showdown with the Celtics at the Garden.The Wizards locker room felt a lot less morbid, unlike before the previous meeting between these teams on Jan. 24, a 123-108 Celtics loss. Then, of course, the Washington players arrived at the Verizon Center dressed in black, as Wizards point guard John Wall called the game a “funeral” for the Celtics.Such terminology is not the normal pregame chit-chat during the regular season. It does, however, lend credence to the thought that a rivalry is developing between...

Wizards vs. Hornets final score: Washington goes cold in 98-93 loss to Charlotte

The Wizards went ice-cold, shooting just 37 percent from the field as they lost to the lowly Hornets, 98-93. John Wall and Bradley Beal only combined for 37 points, shooting 11-30 on the night. Five Hornets players scored in double figures, led by Cody Zeller with 19. From the start of this one, it looked like we might be in for another up and down affair. Bradley Beal and John Wall started the game by driving down the lane for open dunks while Charlotte was knocking down shots on the other end. Things slowed down midway through the quarter after Beal was sent to the bench with two fouls....

Focus on the quality, not the quantity from John Wall’s career-high 20 assist game

When a guy has a career night like John Wall did on Friday against the Bulls, it’s easy to dwell on how Wall was able to get so many assists, but then forget just how good the passes were that got him there. For example, look at how well Wall navigates this fast break, draws the attention to him, and in doing so, creates a lane for Mahinmi to get to the rim: Or, just look at how Wall puts the ball in the exact spot it needed to be on this alley oop: If the pass had been three inches higher, Beal wouldn’t have been able to corral the pass in. If it had been...
