Wall is getting close
Saturday marks exactly two weeks since John Wall had platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment and viscosupplementation injections in his left knee and at the time was prescribed a recovery timeline of approximately two weeks. By that timeline, he should be very close to returning and in recent days he has been able to ramp up his rehab to the point where he participated in a full practice with the Wizards on Friday.
Wall is not expected to play against the Clippers, but this could be the Wizards' last game without him. They have been managing relatively well without him in the lineup. The Wizards are 4-3 since his knee procedures and 5-4 overall without him this season.

Beal is on a roll
Bradley Beal continued to light it up against the Suns on Thursday and could have had more than the 34 points he amassed. After dropping 51 on the Blazers on Tuesday, Beal had 30 points entering the fourth quarter in Phoenix. He has hit the 30-point mark for the second straight game for the fifth time in his career. One more and he matches his career-best streak of three games set on Nov. 5.
Not to get too far ahead of things, but just in case anyone is wondering, the franchise record for most consecutive 30-point games is seven held by Earl 'The Pearl' Monroe who accomplished the feat back in 1968.

Clippers are banged up
It has been a tough season so far for the Clippers who are missing two of their best players in Patrick Beverley, who is done for the season, and Blake Griffin, who is out several months. They have also been playing without Milos Teodosic, a talented rookie point guard.
Add it all up and the Clippers have been one of the NBA's worst teams in the past month. After starting the season 5-2, they are 3-13 in their last 16 games. That stretch includes a four-game losing streak and a 13-game losing streak. All three of their wins were in a row. The Wizards have no business losing this game, even without Wall in their lineup.
