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

Wizards' Wall to have surgery on ruptured left Achilles

The procedure, which has yet to be scheduled, will be performed by Dr. Robert Anderson in Green Bay, Wisc. After surgery to his Achilles, Wall developed an infection and during a routine surgery to clean the infection, it was discovered that his Achilles was in fact ruptured.

The 28-year-old elected to have a season-ending surgery in December with hopes of avoiding any additional damage.

Wall will be out for 12 months following the second surgery.

He was expected to miss six to eight months of action while recovering from that injury.

Wall's former college team-mate DeMarcus Cousins has weighed in with some advice for the crocked star, after the Golden State Warriors center made his comeback from the same injury earlier this year. He also had surgery on both knees before the 2016-17 season.

There is no way to know what sort of player Wall will be when he returns, Douoguih said. "It sucks, it's unfortunate. He's overcome a lot of hard obstacles in his life and prepare to just add this to the list". You could even argue they may have played better.

Mostly, though, the first year of Wall's four-year maximum contract extension kicks in next season.

In 2018, Wall opted for left heel surgery this past December, thus being ruled out for the rest of the 2018-19 season, and now his latest setback in inuring his left Achilles, Wall has played a total of 541 out of 656 games in his eight year career and only played all 82 regular season games once in his eight-year career back in 2013-14, his fourth in the National Basketball Association.
