The Wizards have not yet set a date for John Wall‘s return to the court, but it should be soon. Very soon.

He went through a full-contact 5-on-5 practice Saturday reports Chase Hughes NBC Sports Washington. That is usually the last step before a return.

“John did everything, he did an entire practice which was great,” head coach Scott Brooks said. “I thought he did a great job offensively and defensively.”

Washington hosts the Knicks on Sunday, then the Spurs on Tuesday.

The Wizards have gone 14-10 without Wall, outscoring teams by 1.5 points per 100 possessions thanks to a slightly above average offense, which covered for a slightly below average defense in that stretch.

At 40-32, the Wizards currently sit as the six seed in the East, two games out of the four seed and also two games out of the eight seed.
