Oh,the Woes of john Wall. Wall, the Wizards star point guard will likely sit out the entirety of the 2019-20 season according to team owner Ted Leonsis. Wall missed most of last season after going on out in late December with a a heel injury. He then tore his Achilles tendon in February and was said to be out for 12 months, marking February 2020 as his probable return. But, as the team owner has made clear, Wall is slow in his recovery and the team is opting towards sitting him out instead of possibly bringing him back and causing re-injury.

Without Wall, the Wizards still have Bradley Beal and little else. Though they did resign power forward/center Thomas Bryant to a three year $25 million deal. They added point guards Isaiah Thomas, Ish Smith, Justin Robinson, and Issac Bonga (Who came in the Lakers trade) to fill in for Wall. It is a big pair of shoes with Thomas likely getting the starting spot. Moritz Wagner and Admiral Schofield are young talent that could help, but the Wizards are going to be hurting this coming season in the standings, not that they weren’t last season (though again a lot of that was due to losing John Wall). If Wall were healthy it would be a different story, but as is, the Wizards will be lucky to win the 25 I have projected for them. They will be playing for the bottom three or four spots in the east. The 12th spot if they are lucky.
