UPDATE 6:06 pm: In his pregame comments, Wizards coach Flip Saunders said that Wall would be a game-time decision, to be made after he warmed up. If Wall does play, he will come off the bench, Saunders said.
11: 28 am: For the last week, John Wall has ceded the “ridiculous rookie highlight of the night” to Blake Griffin, but tonight that streak ends. And not just because the Clippers aren’t playing.
Wall will be back on the court with the Washington Wizards tonight after missing four games due to a sprained ankle, according to the Washington Post. He fully participated in practice Monday, which is a good sign.
The Wizards take on the Sixers, so Wall would get a good test with Jrue Holliday and No. 2 pick Evan Turner in opposing colors. Also, Gilbert Arenas said he is good going to the bench or playing whatever role is needed with Wall’s return. Arenas and Kirk Hinrich have played well and kept the Wizards at 2-2 in the four games Wall missed.
