does look like he's cultivating mass, but it could just be due to the crappy picture.

He does look a lot less toned, but the pic quality is dreadful.

By now, you've probably seen those pictures that make it seem like John Wall has gained a lot of weight in his time sitting while injured. In an interview with 106.7 The Fan, Wizards coach Randy Wittman confirmed that Wall has gained "about 6-7 pounds more than what he was prior to the injury" and "is not where he should be" conditioning-wise. However, Wittman doesn't seem too concerned about it.

"If you broke you hand, you know, then we should be a little concerned with where his conditioning is at. You can go out and run on the beach, you can run on the floor. But with his injury, he went so long where they just completely shut him down, and you can do laps in the pool," Wittman said on "LaVar and Dukes. "You can do a lot of different things. He only gained about 6-7 pounds more than what he was prior to the injury. It's going to be a process getting back into shape."

"The specialist just completely shut him down, and it's hard to stay [in shape]. You've got to watch what you eat, but still, if you don't do anything as a professional athlete for six months, you're going to gain some weight," he said later.

Wittman said that he can't rush back Wall too soon because hamstring and groin pulls happen when a player isn't in optimal shape. The doctors were worried that Wall would make the injury worse with most physical activity, hence the persecription for rest.

As far as a timetable, Wittman seemed to indicate that Saturday, as hinted by Ted Leonsis, might be ambitious.

"We'll get three great practices for him and we'll see what next week brings. Maybe we can get him on the floor for limited minutes starting next week sometime," he said.

The 1st pick is just awful, but he seems fine to me in the 2nd. Pic quality is pretty bad though.

So he gained 6-7 pounds and couldn't lift? He definitely shouldn't be that pudgy.

That looks like a much greater fat gain than 6-7 lbs to me.

I understand him not being able to run...cause we didn't want any stress on the injured knee...but don't people who usually suffer an injury like that...usually start to swim? Isn't that an acceptable form of cardio even with that sort of injury? Wall will get back in shape though, not worried. He has terrible dietary habits though.

Guy must have been depressed with his injury and all the losing and messed up his diet. I understand that you can't do physical activity while you're injured, but at least watch what you eat so you don't end up like that.
