Things just keep getting worse for Wizards and John Wall

  • Wizards' Wall to have surgery on ruptured left Achilles

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.

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.

To pile on, John Wall ruptured his Achilles tendon after slipping and falling at home.

John Wall was looking at being out for 6-8 months after undergoing heel surgery last month after discovering that he had a genetic defect in his foot that affected his Achilles tendon. As for this new rupture, Wall apparently slipped and fell in his home. He is due to make $37.8 million next season, according to the Washington Post. "The rupture was diagnosed by [Wizards doctor] Dr Wiemi Douoguih during a procedure to clean out the infection".

Wall was limited to 41 games last season, mostly because of surgery on his left knee.

Aaron Paul to Star in 'Breaking Bad' Movie as Jesse Pinkman!
A fifth season of spin-off show, Better Call Saul , focusing on White's dodgy lawyer Saul Goodman, is set to air this year. Even Gilligan himself acknowledged that when accepting the show's first Emmy for Best Drama.

He was expected to miss six to eight months of action while recovering from that injury.

To make matters worse, this is how he suffered the injury.

The Wizards are three games outside the playoffs in the Eastern Conference but team owner Ted Leonsis says he expects the team to push for the postseason, despite Wall's absence.

As already seen, that's never a guarantee.

Mostly, though, the first year of Wall's four-year maximum contract extension kicks in next season. It increases to a $46.9 million option in the fourth year. Washington now sits at a record of 22-31 and are two games out of a playoff spot.
