John Wall posted a double-double against the Jazz on Wednesday during a 104-91 win with 14 points, two boards, 10 assists, one steal, two blocks and three turnovers.
He's dropping dimes in March like a clumsy toll booth collector, averaging 11.7 per game to go with 18 points, 1.3 steals, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 triples in three games this month. Wall is having a breakout season and hasn't missed a game since returning from a broken knee cap last year, so he's looking like a fixture in fantasy leagues for a long time.

John Wall filled up the stat sheet against the Grizzlies during Monday's 110-104 loss with 23 points, six boards, nine assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers.
He shot 8-of-16 from the field and has really turned it on lately. In his last five, Wall averaged 23.8 points, 4.0 boards, 10.0 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.8 triples on 54.2 percent from the field. He is probably the best point guard in the Eastern Conference in fantasy and reality, which is incredible at age 23.

John Wall handed out a career-high 16 assists against the Sixers on Saturday with 17 points, three boards, two steals and one 3-pointer on 6-of-10 shooting.
He handed out eight assists in the first six minutes of the game and was consistently making the Sixers defense collapse. After a disappointing January with just 7.5 assists per game, Wall handed out 9.1 per game in February. He was also above 8.9 per game n November and December, so Wall has really blossomed as a passer in his age-23 season. He'll be a fantasy stud for a long time.

John Wall was outstanding in Thursday's 134-129 triple-overtime win over the Raptors with 31 points, three boards, nine assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 49 minutes.
He shot 12-of-20 from the field and was attacking the basket all night. Wall's skills as a passer and as a shooter in his fourth season have really taken his game to the next level. He's only going to get better and anyone who took him in the first round of fantasy drafts has to be feeling pretty good.

John Wall scored a team-high 21 points against the Cavs during a 96-83 win, adding three boards, nine assists and three 3-pointers.
He got the best of fellow No. 1 draft pick Kyrie Irving tonight and kept his team to just five turnovers. His Wizards are sitting in the five spot for playoff seeding in the Eastern Conference and could climb as long as Nene's knee is not a season-ender. Regardless of Nene's status, Wall is going to be a high-end fantasy point guard in his best season as a pro.

John Wall hit 8-of-19 shots and three 3-pointers for 21 points, five rebounds, 12 assists, a steal and a block in Wednesday's win over the Hawks.
Wall's shooting could be better on most nights, but he's a great scorer, is hitting 3-pointers and is always a candidate for a points-assists double-double every time he steps on the court.

John Wall was named the Dunker of the Night in Saturday night's Sprite Slam Dunk Contest.
The new format being horrible was the main story of the contest. They started with a freestyle round which had each team of three players dunking for 90 seconds. After the East won that, one East player went against a West player in a battle round, then that was it. Wall's last dunk was incredible as he jumped over the Wizards' mascot and did double-pump reverse for what was one of the better dunks in the past few years. Damian Lillard also had a through-the-leg dunk off a bounce for another very impressive slam. Hopefully, the NBA goes back to the old format because Wall's dunk would have likely received a 50.

John Wall bounced back on Wednesday during a 113-112 loss to Houston, scoring 19 points with one board, 14 assists, three steals and two 3-poitners in 41 minutes.
He shot 8-of-24 from the field in a somewhat disappointing line against Jeremy Lin and the Pat Beverley-less Rockets. Wall scored just five points on Tuesday and heads into the break with his team in the sixth spot in the Eastern Conference due to losing their last two games. His numbers are terrific this season and he'll continue to be a No. 1 fantasy point guard.

John Wall had one of his worst games of the season on Tuesday, scoring a season-low five points with three boards, five assists and four turnovers in 33 minutes.
He shot 2-of-10 from the floor and didn't have the ball much while Bradley Beal was outstanding. Wall is coming off a 12-point game on Sunday, but had 22.4 points per game in his previous five February games including that 12-pointer. He isn't as active with Beal on the court, posting a usage rate of 19.7 percent with Beal vs. a 26.9 without him on the court, but his field goal percentage is almost six percentage points higher. There's really no need to worry and Wall has been able to co-exist with Beal in almost all of his time together with him.

John Wall scored a game-high 32 points in Friday's 115-113 loss at home to the Cavs, adding five boards, 10 assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers.
The Wizards were flying high with two huge wins over the Blazers and Thunder, but this loss has to hurt. Wall finally got himself over the 20.0 points-per-game plateau with this game and the Wizards are two totally different teams when he's on the court. He's responsible for so much of their offense and he's just 23 years old.
