Next season, Wall enters the first year of a four-year, $169 million extension. He will now have an operation on his achilles and is not expected to return to action until at least a year after the surgery.
Both that surgery and the next one will be performed by Dr. Robert Anderson in Green Bay, WI. It was diagnosed during a procedure to clear out an infection in the incision from his heel surgery January 8.
Ironically, Wall had said that one reason he elected to have the season-ending heel surgery was to avoid suffering a worse injury. The Washington Wizards star has been out of the lineup since December 26th with an injury to his Achilles that he actually sustained after slipping at home.
Wizards medical director and orthopedist Wiemi Douoguih diagnosed the rupture during a procedure to clean out an infection that had developed in the incision from the initial surgery.
It's an ignominious way for Wall, a five-time All-Star and former No. 1-overall draft pick, to lose a year off the prime of his career, but the effect is even more damaging to the Wizards.
