Another operation to fix the tendon will be performed by physician Robert Anderson in Green Bay, Wisconsin, at a date to be determined.

In 2018, Wall opted for left heel surgery this past December, thus being ruled out for the rest of the 2018-19 season, and now his latest setback in inuring his left Achilles, Wall has played a total of 541 out of 656 games in his eight year career and only played all 82 regular season games once in his eight-year career back in 2013-14, his fourth in the National Basketball Association.

The 28-year-old playmaker, the first overall choice in the 2010 NBA Draft by the Wizards, slipped and fell in his home to rupture the tendon.

If John Wall's initial Achilles injury had dimmed the Wizards' hopes for the present, the latest news casts a dark cloud over their future as well. The rupture of his Achilles' was diagnosed by Wizards director of medical services and orthopedist Dr. Wiemi Douoguih during a procedure to clean out the original incision. Wall will undergo a yet-to-be-scheduled surgery to fix a ruptured left Achilles tendon. Wall also had surgery on both knees in 2016.

The loss of Wall is obviously a tough blow for the Wizards - a team with playoff aspirations.

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.

Dr. Robert Anderson of Green Bay, Wisc., will perform the surgery to fix the torn Achilles, but no date has been scheduled for the procedure. Next season starts Wall's four-year, $170 million extension. You could even argue they may have played better.
