G - HOU - OUT
Rockets PG John Wall (injury management) won’t play on the front end of a back-to-back Sunday vs. the Magic.
This is likely to become a recurrence moving forward, where the Rockets rest Wall in back-to-back sets. Look for Kevin Porter Jr. to see increased usage with Wall out of the lineup. He should return Monday vs. the Heat.
John Wall posted 13 points (5-20 FG, 3-10 3PT), two rebounds, eight assists, one steal, and five turnovers in 36 minutes during Monday's loss to the Suns.
Wall took a backseat to Kevin Porter Jr. in this one as he continued his poor shooting from the field. His value has gone way down over the last couple of months but fantasy managers have no choice but to continue starting him. He'll look to bounce back in Wednesday's tilt against the Pacers.
John Wall posted 31 points (12-23 FG, 4-10 3PT, 3-6 FT), three rebounds, seven assists, one block, four steals, and only one turnover in 34 minutes during Wednesday's win over the Mavericks.
Making his return after missing more than a week, Wall had arguably his best fantasy showing of the season. He was efficient, didn't turn the basketball over, and contributed in every stat category en route to his third 30-point game of the season. While he is always a threat to rest on any given night, you're starting him if you have him. He'll look to stay in form for Friday's tilt against the Clippers.
John Wall (knee) says that he expects to play in Wednesday's contest against Dallas.
Wall has missed the last four games for the Rockets and has not seen the floor since March 29th. The Rockets have lost all four games that Wall has missed, en route to a 13-37 record on the year. It is likely that if Wall returns, he will be on a minutes restriction for tonight's contest, so fantasy managers should monitor Wall's minutes going forward.
Houston Rockets PG John Wall (knee) has been ruled out Monday against the Suns.
The Rockets will be without Wall on the second night of a back-to-back Monday due to left knee effusion. The injury has cost him four straight games, and there was a report earlier this season that Wall will eventually require surgery to alleviate the discomfort. Kevin Porter Jr. has risen as the primary playmaker sans Wall, and Sterling Brown has started in the interim.
