Wizards' Wall to make season debut Saturday

The SportsXchange

Washington Wizards guard John Wall is scheduled to make his season debut on Saturday against the Los Angeles Clippers, multiple media outlets reported Friday.

Wall, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, has not played at all this season as he recovers from a knee injury.

His minutes will be restricted on Saturday and in his first several games back as he gets into game shape.

"The thing he has to temper a little bit is he's going to be going a 100 miles per hour, knowing John," Wizards coach Randy Wittman told the Washington Examiner. "He's got to temper that, but you also want him to play the way he plays. I don't want to pull back on any of that. But hey, it's a good problem to have. His conditioning is going to be a thing that I make sure I keep a good eye on. That when I see the point of exhaustion, I got to get him in and out. I'm sure after talking to the doctor from a minutes standpoint I think we'll probably have (a restriction) there initially and as he moves forward."

Wall averaged 16.3 points and 8.0 assists for the Wizards last season, which was his second season in the NBA.

Washington is 5-28 this season.
