Great news for the Washington Wizards since John Wall announced he's healthy and ready to go. The five-time All-Star shared the good news in a recent call, where he claimed he was '110%'. The Wizards have struggled without the point guard, and even though Bradley Beal is having a terrific season, he hasn't been able to do more for the Wizards.
He won't play this season, but he assured he's ready to return to the hardwoods next year and lead the Wizards to be a competitive team again. He underwent surgery for bone spurs in his left heel that ended his 2018/19 season and another for a torn left Achilles that prevented him from playing this campaign.
"I'm 110%," the point guard said Tuesday on a Zoom call, via ESPN. "I'm healthy."
"I'm itching to get back out there," Wall added. "I'm just focused on getting back out there and watching how [Bradley Beal] has developed, how our team has developed, how we have made changes in the organization to prepare ourselves for next season and see what we can do."
This season the Wizards were 24-40 before the NBA suspended the season after Rudy Gobert tested positive for COVID-19. It will be hard to see Washington back in action this season, so Wall will have plenty of time to get ready for his return.
It'll be interesting to see how he would play with the upgraded version of Bradley Beal, but right now fans have reasons to dream of seeing their team being relevant again.
