Strange scheduling.

They will be able to get in a lot of practice during that 4 day break. How this goes will tell a lot about when he returns.

Then after the 12th they have a day off then a game on the 14th, then another day off before they head on the road for 5 games. First road game is against SAC on the 16th.

Could his return be that game ?

Heard during the game that Trevor A could have played today. I found that interesting. When is the last time you remember hearing that from the team? An injured played could return but they are waiting even longer then needed. I think they said he would play against OKC tomorrow.

yeah seem more and more like they trying to tank. But why would they be tanking this season?


They aren't "tanking". They are just this bad!

Every year the same drivel.

Players who remain under contract through 5 p.m. will have their salary on the books for the remainder of the season. Temple survived, after replacing Mack as the starter and adding a bigger, more versatile player who could defend multiple positions.

With Price practicing and Temple showing he adds something to the roster, it was a forgone conclusion Mack was the odd man out. We saw that the second game after Mack returned with Temple got the start.

I think that leaves them at 14 so they have a slot open if they want to add someone.

Maybe Cook. They would use a big who has range.

^^ehh, He'll play light minutes for a couple weeks and that weight will slid off. When your in great shape and immediately stop activity(and have a poor/average diet) you can pack on some pounds quickly because your basal metabolic rate still make you hungry as all hell. But when you return to activity it drops off extremely fast.

Son of Eackles! That looks like "prison weight": lotsa lifting, very little cardio. :P

Eh, I think he'll be fine. I don't think he looks that much different than, say, a shirtless Chris Paul would.

Looks like he could stand to lose 5-10 pounds. That's to be expected since he couldn't do much cardio.

But folks expecting 20 & 10 right out the gate may be disappointed.

funny how age changes one's perspective 'cause when I saw the pix
I thought he looked ripped. Then again, the guy I see most with his
shirt off is me in the mirror.
A lot of what we call 'thought' is just mental activity

“It is possible but not quite certain, for the first time all season, that we could dress all of our players,” Leonsis wrote. “I don’t want to jinx it, but we are all hoping that is what we will see.”

---

They have until Friday to get in practices. Now if Trevor A was ready to play the game before but didn't, I don't see how they bring Wall back on such short notice. Sounds like Ted trying to see some seats and get people excited knowing he will be returning soon. No NHL and a bad start of the Wiz has gotta be hitting the pocket.

Not saying he couldn't play but why push it. Give his joints and muscles a little more time to adjust. I would suit him up and have him ready, but I wouldn't play him unless there was a specific need.

They just beat OKC. Go with what you had last game that worked. RG3 and Cpt Kirk comes to mind. Why rush it. You know what I mean ? Temple and Price handled the PG duties just fine last game.

I would rather he return at ORL or SAC.

This video is to funny. Now we know where the John Wall belly came from.

:-?

Perhaps this is part of some transformation to becoming and looking like a shooter as opposed to a guy who gets by on athleticism. A doughy, non-athletic looking dude is always the player you cannot leave open. John Wall looks like a shooter right now and nothing like a world class athlete who makes millions.

Wall could be in worse shape.

:o

Wall needs to tighten up. He doesn't want to end up like the athlete above.

Wow... People need to relax. People need to realize that he wasn't allowed to do any type of physical activity for months right? He will get back in shape, this is nothing to worry about.

It's still a drastic transition from his previous shape.

At this point, I'd let him come back after All-Star game and with limit on minutes.

Return to Washington Wizards
