  • Wizards' Wall to have surgery on ruptured left Achilles

It was Anderson who operated on Wall on January 8, removing damaged tissue from Haglund's Deformity - a bony enlargement on the back of the heel - and repairing a chronic Achilles tendon injury in his left heel.

Washington Wizards player John Wall has suffered an injury that occurred off the court this time.

Wall was recovering from the heel surgery he underwent in December and the initial incision become infected and required debridement. The Wizards think Wall can return to full basketball activity around 12 months after the surgery takes place. As for this new rupture, Wall apparently slipped and fell in his home. "The rupture was diagnosed by [Wizards doctor] Dr Wiemi Douoguih during a procedure to clean out the infection".

Injuries have robbed Wall over the last couple of years, with the star only playing in half of his team's 82 games last season due to a left knee injury.

Golden State Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins, who recently returned from a torn left Achilles after nearly a year of rehab, said Tuesday that he's spoken to Wall and offered him some advice. "It sucks. It's unfortunate". "You have to go to the players, the coach, the staff and say, 'Do we have enough to make the playoffs?' And to a person, I was told, 'Yes we do.'" Leonsis told Washington radio station WTOP last week.

He played just 32 games this season, the second straight year that he'll miss significant time. Wall's four-year "supermax" contract extension will kick in next season with an annual salary starting at $37.8 million.
