John Wall is inching his way back to the hardwood.
The former Wildcat and five-time NBA All-Star slipped and ruptured his Achilles in February. Four months after the surgical repair, Wall is in Miami to train with David Alexander, the first step in his road to recovery.

After pushing the Boston Celtics to a game seven in the second round of the 2017 NBA Playoffs, Wall has played in only 73 games over the last two seasons. Wall’s string of recent injuries has put the Wizards behind the eight-ball, but the ownership is not pushing for him to return anytime soon. He could miss the entire 2019-20 season.
“John looks fantastic. He just looks ready to play. My concern is the other way,” said owner Ted Leonosis. “If it takes the whole season, we don’t care. We are not putting any pressure on you.”
