Rockets star guard John Wall will be sidelined for the remainder of the season due to a hamstring tweak, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium. Wall being shut down also gives Houston opportunity to tinker with lineups for final 11 games of season.

Wall was traded during the offseason by the Washington Wizards to the Rockets in exchange for Russell Westbrook as he was preparing for a comeback season after two years out with several injuries.
Wall season had some positive signs, at least in the start, before the Rockets’ season plummeted. With the James Harden trade to the Brooklyn Nets and then Christian Wood injury, the team went on to a 20-game losing streak.
With the end of the season arriving and the team in the last place of the Western Conference and the worst record in the league with 15 wins and 46 losses, the team will sit out one of their stars for the last three weeks of the regular season.
Wall played in 40 games this season with averages of 20.6 points, 6.9 assists, and 1.1 steals in 32.2 minutes per game.
