Wizards' John Wall Ruptures Achilles After Slipping and Falling at Home, Out 12 Months
14 February, 2019, 09:58
The timetable is set for 11-to-15 months, which could keep Wall out for up to all of next season, Wizards team doctor Wiemi Douoguih told reporters on a conference call Tuesday afternoon.
The procedure has not yet been scheduled and will be done in Green Bay, Wisconsin, by Dr. Robert Anderson.
The whole reason why John Wall has been sitting out is to avoid further injury to his nagging heel injury, which had been bothering him earlier in the season and forced him to undergo surgery. The initial surgery, a debridement and fix of a Haglund's deformity and a chronic Achilles tendon injury in his left heel, was supposed to keep him out six to eight months.
Wall had reportedly developed an infection in his incision from his initial Achilles surgery on January 8 after suffering the rupture from slipping and falling in his home. He was expected to miss 6-to-8 months recovering from that injury.
Is John Wall coming back worth waiting most of the season? But me knowing John as long as I do, I know he'll overcome this.
"He's overcome a lot of hard obstacles in his life, [and you can] just add this to the list".
Wall played in 32 games during the 2018-19 campaign, averaging 20.7 points, 8.7 assists, 3.6 rebounds and 1.5 steals over 34.5 minutes per game while shooting 44.4 percent from the floor, 30.2 percent from 3-point range and 69.7 percent from the free-throw line. Surgery means Wall is likely to miss most, if not all, of next season - his first year of the four-year, $170 max contract extension he signed two summers ago.
