John Wall injury update: Wizards' G to begin 'ramping up' activity level

Jason Miller

The Washington Wizards' point guard received some good news about his injured left knee. He will begin to "ramp up" his activity with the hope of returning soon.

The 3-16 Washington Wizards finally got some relatively good news this season. Star point guard John Wall is on the road to recovery after receiving some good news about his injured left knee in a visit with a New York doctor. Wall will begin to "ramp up" his activity level with the hopes of returning to the court soon, according to the team.

Dr. David Altchek did acknowledge that some "irritation" remains in the knee, and the team will continue to treat that. It remains to be seen when Wall will return to actual game action.

Still, the news comes as a relief to the Wizards and their fans. Wall was initially expected to miss eight weeks with a stress injury to his left patella tendon, but 11 weeks had passed and Wall still hadn't been cleared to return to practice until now. The Wizards decided to bring Wall to see Altchek to get a better idea of when Wall might come back. Altchek is the same doctor that initially diagnosed Wall's injury over the summer.

The Wizards have struggled mightily without Wall, as replacements such as A.J. Price and Shaun Livingston have been a major step down. Price too is now out for 4-6 weeks after fracturing his hand in the Wizards' loss to the Golden State Warriors last Saturday.
