Wall is coming off of arthroscopic left knee surgery, which took place back on Jan. 31. The Wizards (41-34) have been without their superstar point guard since then and still won 15 out of the 27 games Wall was absent. In the 37 games he played, Wall averaged 19.4 points, 9.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.1 blocks.
Even with the success the Wizards have enjoyed with Wall sidelined, having Wall in the playoffs will be key. The Wizards are currently projected to face LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the first round of the playoffs.
