Washington Wizards' John Wall out for season for ruptured Achilles tendon surgery

The John Wall injury further pushes the Wizards into NBA purgatory

Douoguih estimated the recovery range for Wall's injury, "at John's age", to be from 11 to 15 months.

The 28-year-old elected to have a season-ending surgery in December with hopes of avoiding any additional damage.

He just knows how to make plays and put the ball in the bucket.

Making matters worse was how Wall was not wearing his walking boot when he slipped and fell, although not wearing the boot at home is permitted. "He had a slight increase in discomfort".

Traditionally Achilles injuries could spell a death sentence for basketball players, especially centres and forwards, because larger players find it extremely hard to make sharp movements and change direction after the injury. Wall had already been out after heel surgery.

Boston Police officers couldn't resist the tune either, posting the video below to their official Twitter account. Staying in the Locker Room for the playing of our National Anthem is as disrespectful to our country as kneeling.

Wall contributed 20.7 points per game to the Wizards this season in 32 matches.

Wall was the No.1 overall pick in the 2010 National Basketball Association draft. He missed two months after knee surgery last season, and had double knee surgery in 2016.

Next season, Wall enters the first year of a four-year, $169 million extension.

The news might change the way the club approaches Thursday's trade deadline, because while this season was basically a throwaway after injuries to Wall, Dwight Howard and Markieff Morris, the uncertainty surrounding the point guard for next season makes the franchise's future even harder to assess.

The Wizards are now 22-31, 3.0 games back from the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference.
