The Code Master reporting in on The Sportcodex Blog.

I just want to talk about the Wizards, yes the Washington Wizards, the team I picked as a Dark Horse to sneak into the playoffs at the start of the season. But that was before I knew John Wall was going to miss 8 weeks while recovering from a stress injury to his left kneecap.

The Wizards went 5-28 without Wall from the start of the season until early January. Since then the Wizards have gone 21-16! Thats a turnaround, this is just about MVP level criteria for carrying a team. His March statline reads, 21.8 Points per game, 8 Assists per game, 4.5 Rebounds per game (that’s with Nene & Okafor on the team) and 1.9 steals per game.

If only the season went for another month! In saying that though the Wizards are going to get another high pick and should be another piece to a hopeful future.

Check out Wall’s 47 Point Perfomance against the Memphis Grizzlies from yesterday.
