And when it comes to wall treatment, it is not directly linked with turbulence model; even LES requires wall treatment. y^+ is a non-dimensional (Reynolds) number and for almost all industrial fluids, theoretically as well as experimentally, it is found that u^+ = y^+ up to y^+ of 5. And if it is linear within this limit, it does not matter if you have 10 points or just 1 point, the line would be same. So, y^+ being smaller than 1 is an overkill and does not help within anything.

Boundary conditions for both k and \varepsilon at the wall is 0.
