John Wall PG WAS 9 Hrs
John Wall handed out eight assists in Monday's 75-74 loss to the Nuggets to go with 20 points, five boards, three steals, one block, two 3-pointers and four turnovers in 38 minutes.
Wall's numbers are jumping in just about every category and he's on pace for new career highs in points, boards, assists, steals, triples and free throw percentage. His 1.2 triples per game has really launched his fantasy value to new heights and there's no signs of his slowing down.

John Wall scored 30 points on 9-of-23 shooting (0-for-5 from deep, 12-of-13 from the line) with three rebounds, eight assists, two steals and three blocks in the Wizards' 109-105 overtime loss to the Bucks on Friday.
Wall couldn't find the range shooting the ball but everything else was in place. If Martell Webster and Nene miss time then his efficiency could slip as the team becomes easier to defend, but there are no real worries about his top 10-15 value.

John Wall handed out 13 assists against the Magic on Monday with 16 points, four boards, one steal and two 3-pointers on 5-of-14 from the field.
His skills as a passer have been the big difference this year. Not only is Wall ranked second in the NBA in assists per game, but he also leads the NBA in secondary assists per game and makes the second-most passes per game. He does have some issues in scoring when he's not getting layups and dunks, but the dimes, threes, points and steals more than offset his low field goal percentage. He's one of the best point guards to own in fantasy.

John Wall cleared the 30-point plateau for the third consecutive game on Tuesday with 31 points, six boards, nine assists, three steals and three turnovers on 10-of-18 shooting against the Lakers.
He shot 11-of-12 from the line tonight and is absolutely on fire in this three game-stretch. Wall shot 61.4 percent from the field on his 19.0 shot attempts per game. He was relentless in attack the rim tonight and 10 of his 18 shots came from within four feet. Wall said after the game he's trying to be the best point guard in the NBA, and he'll get his chance to be a superstar with Bradley Beal out of the lineup.

John Wall shot 15-of-21 in a loss to the Raptors on Friday for a season-high 37 points to go with six boards, two assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 40 minutes.
He was long overdue for a productive game after a terrible start shooting. Outside of the 63.6 percent Wall made in the restricted area, he's shooting just 30 percent on his other field goal attempts. He ranks second in the NBA in assists per game and has really made some great strides to become one of the best point guards in the league.

John Wall's back spasms may have limited him during Saturday's loss, in which he handed out 12 assists but shot just 3-of-13 from the field.
Wall didn't seem as explosive as usual, and when he wasn't in the game he lay flat on his back with heat pads, la Steve Nash. He also had a puffy eye from Wednesday's game, but his back is the lingering concern -- the good news is that there hasn't been any suggestion of DNPs, and he's ready to go for Washington's back-to-back set on Tuesday and Wednesday.

John Wall played through an eye injury on Saturday but hit just 3-of-13 shots and missed all four of his 3-pointers for nine points, 12 assists and a steal.
The 12 dimes were nice, as was the fact he played, and it's possible the eye was bothering him enough to affect his shot. With four games next week, Wall remains a must-start in all leagues.
