Wall Likely To Debut Saturday
It is appearing more and more likely that John Wall will make his season debut for the Washington Wizards on Saturday against the Atlanta Hawks.
“I stepped it up this year. You got to step it up from time to time,” Wall said after Wednesday’s practice while flashing a grin, before concluding: “I’m tired of suits. I want to put on a jersey.”
“They have to ultimately clear him,” Randy Wittman said. “He’s conditioning isn’t near where it needs to be at this time. I don’t want to put him in a situation out on the floor where conditioning is going to have a tendency to cause another injury. I have to be careful with that on my own without a doctor telling me that.”
Wall has yet to play this season due to a stress injury in his left patella.
