The Wizards Announce John Wall’s Season Is Over Due To Heel Surgery

John Wall’s 2018-19 season will come to an abrupt end. The Washington Wizards announced on Saturday night that the All-Star point guard will undergo surgery on his heel to fix an issue that has impacted him for several years.

“Wizards guard John Wall will undergo a debridement and repair of a Haglund’s deformity and a chronic Achilles tendon injury in his left heel,” the team announced in a statement. “The procedure will be performed by Dr. Robert Anderson in Green Bay, WI, next week on a day to be determined. Wall is expected to return to full basketball activity in approximately six to eight months.”

In what has been a disappointing season for the Wizards, Wall appeared in 32 games, averaging 20.7 points, 8.7 assists, 3.6 rebounds, and 1.5 steals.
