It may be the most underreported story of the offseason: John Wall had surgery on both knees after last season (which ended with the Wizards missing the playoffs). This was more than a simple cleanup scope job; Wall has said he was not sure he would be back for the start of this season.
It sounds like he’s making progress, according to Chris Miller of CSN MidAtlantic.
More important than if Wall be ready to go opening night or a couple of weeks later is this: Do the Wizards get vintage, explosive Wall? He says yes. He’s one of the best athletes playing the point in the NBA when he’s healthy — and the Wizards need that Wall, and better chemistry between him and Bradley Beal, if they want to make the playoffs in the East.
