John Wall News
Houston Rockets point guard John Wall (hamstring) has been ruled out for the rest of the year after having tweaked his hamstring. With 11 games still on the Rockets' slate, they will likely hand starting PG duties to Kevin Porter Jr., increasing his already sizable workload. Wall's first season in Houston was marred by injury, as he played in just 40 contests; he averaged 20.6 points and 6.9 assists per game when available. With two more likely seasons as a Rocket in his future, Wall should remain a strong fantasy asset, especially as the team goes through the early stages of a rebuild.
Houston Rockets point guard John Wall ended an eight-game double-double drought on Friday with 27 points and 13 assists in a 109-104 loss to the Clippers. He also picked up three rebounds, two blocks and one steal while shooting 9-for-22 from the field and 8-for-9 at the foul line. Wall had a rough night with the three-ball, finishing 1-for-7 from behind the arc. The Rockets play again on Saturday and it's already confirmed that Wall will sit out the road contest against Denver. He should be back on Tuesday against Minnesota in a very favorable matchup. The Timberwolves are allowing the most points per 48 minutes to opposing point guards this season. Wall's shot hasn't dropped very well in the matchup this season, but he has posted double-doubles in both of his outings.
Houston Rockets point guard John Wall (rest) has been cleared to play in Friday's game against the Clippers, but he has been preemptively ruled out for Saturday versus Denver. Wall is unlikely to play in both legs of any back-to-backs down the stretch of the year with Houston considerably out of the playoff mix. When on the floor, he has proven to be a solid contributor, albeit one who has hovered around the 30-minute mark in his last three contests. Season-long managers can anticipate having him back Tuesday when the Rockets take on the T-Wolves with no restrictions.
Houston Rockets point guard John Wall scored a team-high 21 points in Wednesday's blowout loss to Utah, shooting a poor 1-for-5 from downtown but a decent 8-for-19 overall from the field with a 4-for-4 record at the foul line. His night also included six assists, three rebounds and three turnovers. Wall was in a bit of an offensive slump ahead of Wednesday's action, so this was a good performance to spark a scoring streak. The next matchup against the Clippers is a very favorable one for him, but it's the first game of a back-to-back set, which could result in a rest day for the veteran, so fantasy managers have to take that into consideration before getting him into the lineup.
