    Generally, soreness doesn't keep a guy out for a week, so asking a question about it is not the same expecting him to play 82 games after 2 years out.

    Not surprising since Dipo is from DC and played AAu there while wall was playing with the wizards

    Generally doesn't apply to Wall especially with his injury history

    I wonder if he is practicing yet? Likely not but will need to practice a little before he can play. When he does play just play him 30-32 minutes.

    This is exactly how you define "injury prone"

    Yep. I never did though personally. After the Yao/Tmac mess.

    The uncomfortableness may disrupt bball, Wall's supplement game is weak, I'm guessing

    He is a great tank commander. You can't get a top 4 pick if you have Harden and Wall playing. Trade one and bench the other.

    But there is a special interview on how he is disrespected and is still one of the top guards in the league. All we have to do is ask him.

    He hasn’t played in 2 years after a devastating injury, I had my hip replaced (I’m not old, 32). And anytime I play my knee kills me. I think he’s always going to be sore on other parts of his legs even though he’s recovered

    Underman tanking.

    Showing he can still play, if down the road; trade value. Benefits us and him. He just wants to play in the NBA, be it here or any other city.

    Fills team's minimum salary.

    Seems like a good teamate.
