Long end of John Wall’s recovery spectrum is 15 months

Otto Porter Jr

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

Wall apparently developed an infection in the incision from his initial heel surgery in early January, then the Achilles' rupture came when he slipped and fell at home.

Wall will undergo surgery some time next week on a ruptured left Achilles tendon, the Wizards announced Tuesday. It was determined it was suffered during a fall at home.

Wall had already been ruled out for the rest of 2018-19 after undergoing heel surgery in late December. The rupture was diagnosed by Wizards Director of Medical Services and Orthopedist Dr. Wiemi Douoguih during a procedure to clean out the infection.

Is John Wall coming back worth waiting most of the season? The Wizards star has had his fair share of injury problems in the past as he only played 41 games last season thanks to a knee injury.

Wall is expected to be out 12 months from the time of the procedure. The 28-year-old signed a four-year contract extension in July 2017 and is due to make $37.8m next season. It increases to a $46.9 million option in the fourth year.

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. At 22-31, the Wizards are now 10th in the East.
