Washington Wizards point guard John Wall is expected to undergo surgery on his left heel, which would end his 2018-19 season, per multiple reports.
Wall saw a specialist for his left heel injury and is planning to have a procedure that would end his regular season, per Adrian Wojnarowski and Brian Windhorst of ESPN. The surgery would sideline Wall for an estimated six to eight months, per Candace Buckner of the Washington Post.
Wall missed Friday night’s game against the Chicago Bulls with the heel injury, a malady that coach Scott Brooks said his point guard has been dealing with for years. “It comes and goes,” Brooks told reporters on Friday.
It was Wall’s fourth game missed in December for the Wizards, who have dropped nine of their last 11 games. After making the playoffs in four of the last five seasons, Washington is mired among the dregs of the Eastern Conference this season at just 13-23.
