Wizards' Wall to have surgery on ruptured left Achilles

Wizards' Wall to have surgery on ruptured left Achilles

Dr. Robert Anderson of Green Bay, Wisc., will perform the surgery to fix the torn Achilles, but no date has been scheduled for the procedure.

Wizards point guard John Wall tore his left Achilles tendon in a fall at his home and could be sidelined up to 12 months following upcoming surgery, the team has announced.

Wall, 28, was already out for the rest of this season after undergoing surgery to remove bone spurs from his left heel on January 8. He then slipped and fell in his home, which resulted in him suffering the injury. The Wizards star has had his fair share of injury problems in the past as he only played 41 games last season thanks to a knee injury.

Wall was diagnosed when a team doctor performed a procedure to clean out an infection. It's another shot of unfortunate luck that's whacked the left leg of the five-time All-Star. He also had surgery on both knees before the 2016-17 season.

Usually, when athletes suffer season-ending injuries, it's because of something that happened in a game.

Wall, whose game is built around his speed and ability to drive to the basket, is expected to be able to return to what the team called "full basketball activities" about a year after that operation.

As already seen, that's never a guarantee. It increases to a $46.9 million option in the fourth year.

The previous heel injury had an estimated recovery timetable of 6-8 months, which meant Wall would likely be ready for the start of the 2019-20 season. Washington now sits at a record of 22-31 and are two games out of a playoff spot.
