According to Chris Mannix of SI.com, Washington Wizards point guard John Wall is expected to make his 2012-13 NBA regular season debut following a left knee strain.

After practicing Thursday, Wizards guard John Wall is expected to make his season debut within the next two weeks, league sources told SI.com.

Wall is an integral piece to the Wizards organization and will be vital moving forward.

After shipping out non-character players the Washington organization recognized as detrimental to the development of the team, the Wizards have hoped to rebuild around Wall and Nené.

With the center’s return, the Wizards still haven’t taken off as they had hoped to, holding a franchise-worst 4-27 record without Wall in the lineup.

As for Wall’s progress through treatment for the knee and what to expect when he returns to the floor?

“He’s still the same player,” A.J. Price told the Post. “Fast. Aggressive. He looked good. Looked like his old self. He was extremely active. Just talking. You could see that he really wanted it. And that’s always good to see, especially from your franchise player, coming back off injury, to show how enthused he was to be back out there and how aggressive he approached the situation.”

Let’s be honest, things can’t get much worse for Washington right now.
