After undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery in late January, it appears John Wall is close to returning to action.
Wall is listed as “questionable” for the Wizards game vs. the Pistons tomorrow night, the first sign he is ready to return from a two-month absence. He will travel with the Wizards to Detroit and practice in the shootaround tomorrow morning. The Wizards just posted this pic of him boarding the team plane:

Wall’s expected recovery time was six to eight weeks. Tomorrow is the eight-week mark. During that time, the Wizards have gone 15-11 and Wall has lost 10 to 15 lbs. and sprouted some new dreadlocks.
If Wall doesn’t play tomorrow, he may return for the Wizards’ game vs. the Hornets in D.C. on Saturday or their trip to Chicago to play the Bulls on Easter Sunday. He looks pretty good in this footage from Sunday:
