Source: John Wall's knee issue is similar to the one that prompted Blake Griffin to cut short his summer-league
stint prior to his rookie year. Griffin, of course, kept thinking the patellar-tendon pain would eventually subside and kept working out. Whether that directly led to the knee-cap fracture that cost him his entire rookie season is not clear, but the Wizards don't want to find out. Hence, the caution with Wall. Best-case scenario, from what I've been told, has Wall back to practicing in next week or so and playing at start of New Year. Worst-case: closer to All-Star break.
