The Washington Wizards announced on Saturday night that the All-Star point guard will undergo surgery on his heel to fix an issue that has impacted him for several years. Wall will finalise a timetable for the procedure in the following days.
Brooks would not speculate on the severity of the injury. The procedure was determined to be the best course of action to relieve pain and inflammation in Wall's heel after consultation between Dr. Anderson, Dr. David Porter of Indianapolis, IN, and Wizards Director of Medical Services and Orthopedist Dr. Wiemi Douoguih. The former No. 1 overall pick has missed three games this season.
For a team that has been in nonstop tumult since the season began, Wall's injury only further exacerbates a frustrated locker room and fanbase.

As you can see, the five-division world champion apparently has no inclinations to return to the ring for a legitimate bout. After the smoke cleared, it became a three-round boxing match, falling fully in Mayweather's wheelhouse.
Wall had missed their last game against the Bulls with that injury. Tomas Satoransky started at point guard.
The Washington Wizards' horrific, dramatic 2018 season has been painful to watch at times.
Wall, who also missed a game December 10 with heel pain, is averaging 20.7 points and 8.7 assists per game. Trevor Ariza ($15 million) and Markieff Morris ($8.6 million) are the most practical to be moved due to their expiring contracts.
