Wizards' John Wall needs Achilles surgery; out another year

Wizards' John Wall needs Achilles surgery; out another year

"Wall had 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 Dr. Anderson) and he suffered the rupture after slipping and falling in his home". "He had a slight increase in discomfort". Even if the Wizards wanted to entertain trading him, the bloated contract and missing big chunks of what will wind up being three straight seasons will keep any interest away. He is on the books to make $38.2 million next season, $41.2 million in 2020-21, $44.3 million in 2021-22 and $47.3 million in 2022-23.

Wall was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 National Basketball Association draft out of Kentucky and was an All-Star each of the past five seasons.

The news is particularly worrying for a player who has struggled with injuries. He also had surgery on both knees before the 2016-17 season. He will now have an operation on his achilles and is not expected to return to action until at least a year after the surgery.

"I talked to him this morning", Cousins said after practice.

"You know, through it all, just try to better yourself each day and once that day's behind you, just move on to the next [one] regardless of the result".

This comes as devistating news to the Wizards, who will likely miss their star point guard for almost the entire 2019-2020 season.

Washington Wizards guard John Wall walks off the court during the second half of an NBA basketball game against the Houston Rockets on December 19, 2018, in Houston.
