Staff report

Washington Wizards point guard John Wall has set his sights on a return to the court following a long injury layoff.

The UK alum has yet to play an NBA game this season due a stress injury in his left knee.

“My timetable is some time in January,” Wall said to Yahoo! Sports on Wednesday . “The way I am feeling with no pain, working out and doing it three [days straight] and it has no pain, I’m feeling good. I feel like I am taking the right steps and I haven’t had no pain the last couple of days after workouts.”
