Wizards’ John Wall out for 12 months after suffering ruptured Achilles

Wizards' Wall to have surgery on ruptured left Achilles

The procedure has not yet been scheduled and will be done in Green Bay, Wisconsin, by Dr. Robert Anderson.

Ironically, Wall had said that one reason he elected to have the season-ending heel surgery was to avoid suffering a worse injury.

The team announced Tuesday that Wall developed an infection in the incision from initial surgery on January 8 (a debridement and fix of a Haglund's deformity and a chronic Achilles tendon injury in his left heel that was also performed by Anderson). This due to what the team says is a slip-and-fall suffered at home. The surgery was a "debridement and fix of a Haglund's deformity and a chronic Achilles tendon injury".

The initial left heel injury was the 10th major injury to force missed time for the five-time All-Star, according to NBC Sports Washington. Douoguih estimated the recovery range for Wall's injury, "at John's age", to be from 11 to 15 months. Wall also had surgery on both knees in 2016.

Wall will undergo surgery on the latest injury, and per the team, will be out for about 12 months.

As already seen, that's never a guarantee.

Wall is set to make $37.8 million in 2019-20 as part of a supermax contract extension with the Wizards. It increases to a $46.9 million option in the fourth year.

Wall played in 32 of Washington's games this season, averaging 20.7 points and 8.7 assists even while dealing with the heel pain - which has been an issue for him many times over the past two to three years. At 22-31, the Wizards are now 10th in the East.
