Is John Wall's Underachieving Career Done — Washington Wizards

Wizards' Wall to have surgery on ruptured left Achilles

In the 2018-19 season, Wall is expected to make over $19 million per spotrac.

"Wall had developed an infection in the incision from initial [heel] surgery on 8 January, and he suffered the rupture after slipping and falling in his home", read a statement on the Wizards' website.

Making matters worse was how Wall was not wearing his walking boot when he slipped and fell, although not wearing the boot at home is permitted.

Wall, the first overall draft pick in 2010, is under contract through 2022-2023 for an average of more than $40 million per year.

Golden State Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins, who recently returned from a torn left Achilles after nearly a year of rehab, said Tuesday that he's spoken to Wall and offered him some advice. "Considering he's a player who relies so much on his quickness and explosiveness, there's also no guarantee he'll recapture his pre-injury form".

Since the incident occurred, Cardiff withheld the first scheduled payment until all of the facts were clarified. If we are successful, we will consider the feasibility of recovering the aircraft wreckage.

Let's start with how bad this is with regards to Wall: Players who rupture their Achilles don't always come back to their pre-surgery form, and on top of that, this is the same John Wall who signed an enormous contract extension past year. "It sucks. It's unfortunate".

Cousins' advice to Wall was simple. You could even argue they may have played better. That was my advice.

"That was my advice and like I said, there's no doubt in my mind he'll overcome this". All-Star guard Bradley Beal has led the squad this season at 24.8 points per game.

The Washington Wizards have become one of the more disappointing teams in the National Basketball Association.
