John Wall has not played in any games this season. 

The former All-Star point guard is on the rebuilding Houston Rockets, and ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported earlier in the month that "there are no plans" for him to play for the Rockets. 

A tweet with what Wojnarowski said can be seen embedded below from the NBA on ESPN's Twitter account. 

According to ESPN's salaries of NBA players list, Wall will make $44,310,840 this season. 

He is the third highest paid player in the NBA, which puts him ahead of a lot of superstars in salary this season. 

For instance, Kevin Durant will make $42,018,900 from the Brooklyn Nets this season. 

Wall was a star when he signed his massive deal with the Washington Wizards several seasons ago, but he has dealt with several injuries since, and then was traded for Russell Westbrook to a Rockets team that is full on youth-mode. 

The former Kentucky star is still just 31-years-old. 

He averaged 20.6 points and 6.9 assists in 40 games last season. 

  • KUZMA AND THE WIZARDS ARE ROLLING: The Washington Wizards traded Russell Westbrook before the start of the season and have a new-look roster. Yet, they look fantastic to start the season, and after they got their tenth win on Monday night over the New Orleans Pelicans, Kyle Kuzma tweeted about their winning streak. CLICK HERE.
  • STEPH AND THE WARRIORS ARE ON FIRE: The Golden State Warriors have not made the playoffs in two seasons, but that appears likely to change this season. They are on fire to start the season led by superstar guard Steph Curry and have the best record in the entire NBA. . CLICK HERE.
