Wizards' Wall tears Achilles in fall, out 12 months

John Wall Could Miss The Entire Next NBA Season After Rupturing His Achilles

One of the reasons Wall opted to undergo season-ending surgery to remove bone spurs from his left heel was to hopefully avoid a more serious 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.

The former Kentucky star ruptured his Achilles tendon in a fall at home. Wall had been dealing with an infection in an incision from a surgery performed on the same Achilles tendon in early January.

The procedure has not yet been scheduled and will be done in Green Bay, Wisconsin, by Dr. Robert Anderson. The rupture was discovered during a procedure to clean out an infection that resulted from the original surgery, according to the team. He was expected to miss 6-to-8 months recovering from that injury.

Alphabet stock slips despite revenue increase of 23% in 2018
Analysts polled by FactSet were expecting earnings per share of $10.86, or a profit of $7.6 billion, on revenue of $38.9 billion. Cloud bets are likely to start paying off in the coming years, said Wedbush Securities analyst Daniel Ives.

In July 2017, Wall signed a four-year, $170 million contract extension through the 2022-23 season. The injury will bar Wall from any basketball-related activity for at least 12 months. It's another shot of unfortunate luck that's whacked the left leg of the five-time All-Star.

Next year alone is set to cost the franchise over $40 million for Wall. The Wizards star has had his fair share of injury problems in the past as he only played 41 games last season thanks to a knee injury.

He appeared in only 32 games this season, averaging 20.7 points and 8.7 assists.
