The Washington Wizards guard will miss at least 12 months after having surgery for a ruptured left Achilles tendon, per a team release.

Ironically, Wall had said that one reason he elected to have the season-ending heel surgery was to avoid suffering a worse injury.

Wall suffered the rupture when he slipped and fell at his home, per the team. The rupture was found during a procedure to clean the infection. The procedure, which has yet to be scheduled, will be performed by Dr. Robert Anderson in Green Bay, Wisc. 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. Douoguih estimated the recovery range for Wall's injury, "at John's age", to be from 11 to 15 months.

The song is the second track from her new album " thank u, next " expected to be released February 8 before the awards show. During an interview with Billboard a year ago , Ariana made it very clear that she is not a pushover in the industry.

In July 2017, Wall signed a four-year, $170 million contract extension through the 2022-23 season. It's another shot of unfortunate luck that's whacked the left leg of the five-time All-Star. It increases to a $46.9 million option in the fourth year. 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.

Wall appeared in only 32 games this season averaging just over 20 points per game. Now 10th in the Eastern Conference, Washington has struggled to a 22-31 record despite having one of the more talented rosters in the East.
