Is John Wall's Underachieving Career Done — Washington Wizards

Is John Wall's Underachieving Career Done — Washington Wizards

On Tuesday, the Washington Wizards announced John Wall has had surgery to fix a ruptured Achilles' tendon.

Wall developed an infection after undergoing an operation on January 8 to fix his chronic Achilles issues.

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.

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.

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. They say the tendon ruptured after slipping and falling in his home.

"If I don't want to deal with the pain or make it any worse and have an opportunity to maybe rupture my whole Achilles later down the road, you get the surgery and take it out", Wall told the Washington Post in late December. It was determined it was suffered during a fall at home. He missed two months after knee surgery last season, and had double knee surgery in 2016.

As already seen, that's never a guarantee.

Wall averaged 20.7 points, 8.7 assists and 3.6 rebounds in 32 games for the Wizards this season.

Also worth noting is that next season is the first year of Wall's contract extension he signed with Washington last Summer. The Wizards (22-31) are 10th in the Eastern Conference as of Tuesday's surgery announcement.
