The minutes have already accumulated with John Wall, who leads the NBA in total minutes played since the All-Star break. He scored 13 points in the fourth quarter despite a sore left foot but tthe Wizards still lost to the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday.
Now Wall's status for Friday's home game vs. the Chicago Bulls is in question.
"I have no idea right now to be honest," Wall, who had a game-high 26 points in a 112-107 loss, said afterwards.
Wall went down after he challenged Nerlens Noel in transition and was blocked. His foot buckled under and he went to the locker room just before halftime.
He returned to start the third quarter and ended up logging 36 minutes, shooting 10-for-20 and having his 44th double-double with 11 assists.
The Wizards took X-Rays of Wall's foot at halftime but coach Scott Brooks said those were negative.
If Wall doesn't play vs. Chicago, or has his minutes reduced significantly, is Brandon Jennings able to fill that void?
He has been the primary backup and has jumped Trey Burke in the rotation but has yet to show he can be a signficant improvement in running the half-court offense. Jennings played 16 minutes and shot 1-for-3, all three-point looks, with four assists.
Wall has played an average of 37.9 minutes per game since the break. That's second to Karl-Anthony Towns' 38.4. But Wall has played more games which is how he leads in total most minutes played.
