John Wall after Wizards’ first practice of training camp: “I feel great”

RICHMOND — Like the rest of us, Marcin Gortat understood that John Wall would be limited in Wizards training camp. Knee surgery and rehabilitation can be a long process, and Wall is recovering from two procedures. So, conventional thought — and cautious words from the man himself — would lead one to believe that Wall would slowly work back into form […]

Scott Brooks wastes no time stressing defense as Wizards open training camp

RICHMOND — For someone as excitable as Kelly Oubre Jr., the Washington Wizards could not have scripted a better first practice of training camp.

What the Wizards need to replace from the players they lost over the summer

The Wizards spent this offseason looking to get younger and more athletic at several positions. With the NBA evolving faster and faster, there were players on last year’s team that no longer fit the bill or the scheme that this team was trying to implement so the front office let them walk. Much has been made about what the Wizards are gaining with their new acquisitions, but let’s...

This is exactly what the Washington Wizards brass wants to hear less than two months after signing Bradley Beal to a five-year, $128 million max deal. Fellow back-court star John Wall spoke out about his relationship with Beal recently — comments that shouldn’t make Wizards fans feel all cozy. “I think a lot of times we have a tendency to dislike each other on the court,...

John Wall: Bradley Beal and I ‘dislike each other on the court’

When the Washington Wizards selected Bradley Beal with the third overall pick in the 2012 draft, it was said that the team had the potential to have the best backcourt in the NBA. But they’ve been anything but. Beal has struggled to stay healthy, playing in 55 games last season, and failing to play in more than 73 during any of the first four years of his career so far.

The Wizards' Quiet, Confusing Offseason

At this time last summer, the Washington Wizards were on the way up. All-star point guard John Wall led the Wizards to their second straight playoff trip, and while the Wizards were bounced in the second round for a second straight year, they battled down to the wire with the Atlanta Hawks without John Wall for three games. They bowed out to the Hawks after a late Al Horford rebound...
