Washington Wizards: Is John Wall's Underachieving Career Done?

Washington Wizards: Is John Wall's Underachieving Career Done?

The new injury will require another yet-to-be-scheduled surgery, which will be done by Dr. Robert Anderson in Green Bay.

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

Wall suffered the rupture when he slipped and fell at his home, per the team.

Washington Wizards guard John Wall will undergo surgery to fix a ruptured left Achilles tendon, the team announced today. He is due to make $37.8 million next season, according to the Washington Post. An original 6-8 month recovery timetable after the first surgery is now naturally extended out.

He was expected to miss six to eight months of action while recovering from that injury. The Wizards' Director of Medical Services and Orthopedist Dr. Wiemi Douoguih diagnosed the rupture during the procedure to clean out the infection.

Kanter played and started 71 games last season with the Knicks and opened this season in their rotation, too. Kanter has appeared in 560 career games with the Utah Jazz, Oklahoma City Thunder and Knicks.

Wall was limited to 41 games last season, mostly because of surgery on his left knee. And Achilles injuries are known to be hard to return from at all, let alone do so at the skill level held prior.

In July 2017, Wall signed a four-year, $170 million contract extension through the 2022-23 season. It increases to a $46.9 million option in the fourth year.

After a 137-129 loss at home against the last-place Atlanta Hawks on Monday night, the Wizards are 22-31 and tied for 10th in the Eastern Conference.

Wall played in 32 of Washington's games this season, averaging 20.7 points and 8.7 assists even while dealing with the heel pain - which has been an issue for him many times over the past two to three years.
