Wizards rule out John Wall returning this season

The Washington Wizards have ruled out the possibility of star guard John Wall playing when the NBA season resumes. General manager Tommy Sheppard says Wall will not travel with the team to Walt Disney World in Central Florida to restart the season. Wall has not played an NBA game since December 2018. He tore his left Achilles tendon and needed another operation in 2019. The 29-year-old in late May deemed himself healthy and said he’s itching to play. Sheppard said Monday the limit of 35 people in the team’s quarantined bubble played a role in deciding not to take Wall on the trip.
