The procedure has not yet been scheduled and will be done in Green Bay, Wisconsin, by Dr. Robert Anderson.

The 28-year-old elected to have a season-ending surgery in December with hopes of avoiding any additional damage.

Washington Wizards all-star guard John Wall has suffered a major injury setback after slipping and falling at his home. The initial surgery, a debridement and fix of a Haglund's deformity and a chronic Achilles tendon injury in his left heel, was supposed to keep him out six to eight months. As for this new rupture, Wall apparently slipped and fell in his home. The five-time All-Star was wearing a boot on his left foot and using a scooter to get around.

Wall was diagnosed when a team doctor performed a procedure to clean out an infection. He's missed more than 70 games due to knee injuries. Wall also had surgery on both knees in 2016.

The Wizards say Wall is expected to return to full basketball activity in approximately 12 months from the time of the surgery. And Achilles injuries are known to be hard to return from at all, let alone do so at the skill level held prior.

Remember: Wall signed a massive four-year, $170 million contract extension with the Wizards last summer, and next season was set to be Wall's first year of that deal. At 22-31, the Wizards are now 10th in the East.

The previous heel injury had an estimated recovery timetable of 6-8 months, which meant Wall would likely be ready for the start of the 2019-20 season.
