Scott Brooks says John Wall is doing well on his recovery
A former NBA point guard himself, the new coach of the Washington Wizards hopes to bring the franchise back to relevance and he’ll be relying heavily on the All Star court general.
Wall is coming off knee surgery this summer but is expected to be back in action well before the 2016-2017 wars commence. Speaking with Chris Miller of CSN Mid-Atlantic, Brooks provided an update on his star point guard’s road to recovery.
“He’s working hard. Every day he’s in the gym, getting his rehab on his body. He’s on the court, he’s playing. One-on-one right now.”
“We’re in no rush. We want to make sure that he’s ready. It’s a process. We still have all of training camp. We’ll see. We’re going to keep working, keep pushing him. The one thing about John. He puts the work in.”
It’s a safe bet that Wall is bent on not losing momentum, especially after the most prolific season of his career which saw him average 19.9 points, 10.2 assists, and 1.9 steals per game. He needs to work on taking better care of the ball as he committed more than four miscues per contest last year.
