Ironically, Wall had said that one reason he elected to have the season-ending heel surgery was to avoid suffering a worse injury. As the Wizards' press release reveals, Wall "developed an infection in the incision from initial surgery on January 8" and then sustained the rupture when he fell in his home. As for this new rupture, Wall apparently slipped and fell in his home. 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. It's another shot of unfortunate luck that's whacked the left leg of the five-time All-Star. "The rupture was diagnosed by [Wizards doctor] Dr Wiemi Douoguih during a procedure to clean out the infection".
