John Wall has missed the entire NBA season so far due to an injury to his left patella, or kneecap. The injury was originally believed to keep him out eight to twelve weeks, with the twelve week mark coming up on Monday. Wall has yet to be cleared for practice, and a source tells ESPN that the Wizards will err on the side of caution regarding his return, only allowing him to play when he is “100% healthy.”
In order to get a better timetable for his return, Wall is having his knee reexamined by New York doctor Dr. David Altchek today. Altchek first diagnosed the injury back in late September.
Everyone cross their fingers.
