04:59 PM ET 01.11 | The day of John Wall's return is finally on the horizon. Wall is officially slated to come back into the Washington Wizards' starting lineup when the team takes on the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday night. Wall will be on a minutes limit, and coach Randy Wittman is keeping a close watch on his conditioning. "The thing he has to temper a little bit is he's going to be going a 100 miles per hour, knowing John," Wittman said. "He's got to temper that, but you also want him to play the way he plays. I don't want to pull back on any of that. But hey, it's a good problem to have. His conditioning is going to be a thing that I make sure I keep a good eye on. That when I see the point of exhaustion, I got to get him in and out. I'm sure after talking to the doctor from a minutes standpoint I think we'll probably have something there initially and as he moves forward."

Washington is a terrible place for young players to mature. (3-4 young guys left last year -- all doing better elsewhere)

If your name is Russell Westbrook than there is nothing wrong with being a Jet Rocket IMO.
