Brooks reports that Wall is “shooting the lights out” during team workouts.
The 29-year-old five-time NBA All-Star says “it’s time for us to get a championship.”
“He’s running, he’s jumping, he’s shooting. He’s shooting the lights out. That’s the good thing about an injury like he’s had — all you have to do is shoot. He’s looking good,” Brooks told “The Sports Junkies.”
“Still lots of work to be done, but he has the right mindset. I anticipate him coming back and being as good as ever.”
Relegated to the role of a spectator while he continues to rehab his Achilles’ tendon, it’s been a good run for Wall the sports fan, who enjoyed watching the Mystics and Nationals bring a WNBA championship and World Series title to the District over the past month.
“I think it’s time for us to get a championship,” Wall continued. “I’m not promising anything, but that’s my ultimate goal is to bring a championship there for the Wizards. The city has been on fire. You can’t [forget] the Caps that won it a year or two ago.”
