“We’ve said all along that we can’t wait until John plays next season, and I think that will still be our attitude and our stance,” Wizards general manager Tommy Sheppard said, according to The Washington Post’s Candace Buckner. “We’re very anxious to see John Wall in uniform next year. I don’t think any of this changes that.”
