John Wall To Miss 12 Months Due To Ruptured Achilles

14 February 2019

The initial surgery, a debridement and fix of a Haglund's deformity and a chronic Achilles tendon injury in his left heel, was supposed to keep him out six to eight months.

Wall was recovering from heel surgery he underwent in December and had an infection on the initial incision from the procedure. He missed two months after knee surgery last season, and had double knee surgery in 2016. Wall was already due to miss the rest of this season after heel surgery.

The rupture was discovered when Wall had a procedure to have his infection cleaned out. Now, Wall will need another surgery to fix it which will make him miss the next 12 months of action, according to ESPN.

Wall's former college team-mate DeMarcus Cousins has weighed in with some advice for the crocked star, after the Golden State Warriors center made his comeback from the same injury earlier this year.

What sort of return can they get for a point guard that won't play until mid-February?

He says his decision was influenced by "everybody showing love" on his unofficial visit at a Georgia game. Shooting guard Anthony Edwards of Atlanta, Georgia has made a decision to stay in his home state.

Is John Wall coming back worth waiting most of the season?

"He's overcome a lot of hard obstacles in his life, [and you can] just add this to the list". "Like I said, there's no doubt in my mind he'll overcome this".

Remember: Wall signed a massive four-year, $170 million contract extension with the Wizards last summer, and next season was set to be Wall's first year of that deal.

The previous heel injury had an estimated recovery timetable of 6-8 months, which meant Wall would likely be ready for the start of the 2019-20 season.
