No Minute Restriction for Wall Tonight
According to Chris Miller of NBC Sports Washington, John Wall will start tonight vs the Hornets. We already knew that Wall was likely to return tonight, but the more exciting part of Miller’s report is that Wall will face no minutes restriction that would be expected after such a long time out. Clearly the Wizards training staff feels comfortable enough with Wall’s progress to let him play as if he hadn’t just been out for two months.
The Hornets are not a particularly fierce opponent at 34-42, but they are led by All-Star PG Kemba Walker (23.0 PPG this year) who Wall will have to guard.
