Is this a supporting wall?

The wall is not perpendicular to the floor joist in the basement. I can't get to the attic as it's a 1940 cape style home. Any info will be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forums.

If that was a load bearing wall it would need a main beam under it in the basement with usually columns to the floor.
