VIDEO: John Wall, Kelly Oubre work out with LeBron James; Wall says he's best two-way PG

John Wall's offseason documentary with Ball Is Life has a new episode and in it is extensive footage of Wall working out with teammate Kelly Oubre, Jr. Well, there's also another familiar face in the video: LeBron James. Ever heard of him?

Yes, Wall and Oubre went through drills and hung out with the three-time NBA champ. We knew Wall hard worked out with LeBron based on Instagram pictures, but now we can see them in action.

In that video Wall proclaims himself as the best two-way point guard in the NBA, another indication he is taking defense very seriously this offseason.

As some have noted on Twitter, LeBron and Wall seem to make a pretty good team. Surely, that won't have Wizards fans dreaming of what could be next summer when LeBron is a free agent. No, they wouldn't do that.

Oh wait, they already have:

Three things to watch...

Will Wall or Mahinmi play?

The Wizards may be getting their best player back on on Wednesday, as John Wall inches closer to his return from a left knee injury. Wall had platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment and viscosupplementation injections on Nov. 25 and has been working his way back in the weeks since. If Wall can  come back, it will be at a good time. The Wizards have lost two straight games to sub-.500 teams and are 4-5 since he went down with the injury.

Ian Mahinmi has a right knee strain and missed his first game of the season on Tuesday against Brooklyn. It's unclear how serious his injury is, but Jason Smith did play well in his absence.

Can the Wizards beat a bad team?

The Grizzlies are certifiably bad, but so are the Nets and the Wizards lost to them. The same could be said about Saturday's game when they lost to the Clippers. Losing to lesser teams has been a trend for the Wizards this season, as they are 5-7 against sub-.500 opponents.

Memphis has lost 15 of their last 16 games and are 8-19 overall on the season. However, they have beaten the Warriors, the Timberwolves, the Blazers and the Rockets twice. The Wizards should beat them, but we've said that about other teams.

No Conley for the Grizzlies

The Wizards may be getting their star point guard back, but the Grizzlies will definitely be without theirs. Mike Conley, Jr. is sidelined with a left Achilles and heel injury and the Grizzlies aren't much without him. Conley went down 14 games ago and Memphis is 1-13 during that stretch.

With Conley out, the Grizzlies have relied heavily on Tyreke Evans (18.2 points, 47.4% FG) and of course Marc Gasol (19.0 ppg, 8.6 rpg).
