Coach Randy Wittman confirmed that John Wall (knee) will be on a minutes restriction initially.
Wall's knee is feeling 100 percent and he is fully expected to start Saturday's game against the Hawks. At this juncture, Wittman sounds most concerned about his star point guard's conditioning. "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," Wittman said. Wall's minutes cap should start out around a solid 25 and is unlikely to last too long. He'll be the on-court focal point of the franchise shortly.
