John Wall has been declared day-to-day in the Rockets’ injury report ahead of their game against the Memphis Grizzlies tonight.
John Wall has had his fair share of injuries. Wall was sidelined for the Houston Rockets’ last match against the Thunder for recovery purposes for his left Achilles. Without Wall in the lineup, the Rockets were blown out by the Thunder 104-87.
Just a few days back, Wall helped Houston to thrash the Thunder, as the Rockets went off to convert 28 three-pointers. But the team is doing the prudent thing by resting him on the one of two nights on a back-to-back – he missed their loss to the Thunder. But he’ll probably pe playing tonight as a result.
‘I finally can jump’: John Wall talks about his health and how it has helped him improve his shooting
The 5-time All-Star hadn’t played an NBA match for almost 2 years, but he hasn’t been showing any signs of his injury slowing him down. Wall is having himself a career-best three-point shooting, shooting the ball 37.3% from beyond the arc.
Wall has also been consistent with his scoring this season. Although he isn’t as offensively gifted as James Harden was, Wall is able to lead the team to victories. Wall spoke about how his health has been helping him be a better player. He said:
“I finally can jump. People don’t understand, and I can’t wait to tell my story of the two bone spurs I played with, the one in my knee and the one in my heel. it’s just all a testimony to all the hard work and dedication I put into my game.”

The Rockets are going to be playing without the likes of Victor Oladipo and David Nwaba. Ja Morant and the young Grizzlies going against a John Wall led Rockets, will be fun to watch.
