    Wizards' John Wall: Progressing in rehab

    John Wall (Achilles) is progressing well in his recovery from a ruptured left Achilles tendon, Ryan Homler of NBC Sports Washington reports. "I feel great, man," Wall said at Monday night's NBA Awards. "I'm doing a great job with my body, taking care of that."The All-Star is still facing a length road to recovery, and the expectation remains that he'll miss much of the 2019-20 season after sitting out 50 games in 2018-19. Wall revealed that he plans to begin jogging within the next few weeks, and he's already to progressed to isolated movements like ladder steps and stand-up exercises. Even so, the former No. 1 overall pick cautioned that he won't attempt to come back before his body is fully ready. "Just taking my time and progressing and letting everything heal the right way so I don't force myself back and get another injury," Wall said.

    Wizards' John Wall: Unsure of status for 2019-20

    John Wall (Achilles) admitted Tuesday that he's not entirely sure whether he'll be able to play at any point in the 2019-20 season, the Associated Press reports. "I have no idea just yet. That's my goal...That's my mindset, where I'm pushing toward,'' he said. "But whenever the doctors clear me and get to that point, then I will know.''Wall appeared in 32 games before undergoing season-ending surgery on his left heel in January. While recovering from that procedure, he ruptured his Achilles' tendon on the same foot in February when he fell at his home, an incident that required another surgery. Wall received a loose 12-month timeline for his recovery following the second surgery, which would essentially rule him out through at least the All-Star break next season. Even if Wall's rehab proceeds without any notable setbacks, the Washington Wizards may prefer to have the star point guard turn his attention to getting fully healthy in advance of the 2020-21 campaign rather than playing only a handful of late-season games next spring.

    Wizards' John Wall: Given 12-month timetable

    John Wall underwent surgery to repair his ruptured left Achilles on Tuesday and will be out for 12 months, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.Even after undergoing the procedure, the Washington Wizards are sticking with their initial recovery timetable for 12 months, which means the point guard likely won't be able to return to taking part in basketball activities until after the 2020 All-Star break. Thomas Satoransky will continue operating as Washington's starting point guard through the end of this regular season in Wall's absence.

    Wizards' John Wall: Surgery slated for Tuesday

    John Wall is scheduled to undergo surgery Tuesday to repair his ruptured left Achilles' tendon, Ava Wallace of The Washington Post reports.Already sidelined for the rest of the 2018-19 season after undergoing surgery in Jan. 8 to address chronic pain in the same left heel, Wall will now require a more intricate procedure to fix the ruptured tendon. The upcoming surgery is expected to carry an 11-to-15-month recovery timeline, making it likely that Wall misses most if not all of the 2019-20 campaign. Tomas Satoransky has emerged as the Washington Wizards' starting point guard and must-own fantasy player since Wall was shut down, and it's now increasingly likely that Washington looks to re-sign the 27-year-old when he hits free agency in July.

    Wizards' John Wall: Requires surgery for torn Achilles

    John Wall is set to undergo surgery to repair a ruptured left Achilles' tendon, which he suffered after slipping and falling in his home. The point guard is expected to return to basketball activity in roughly 12 months.Wall was already on the shelf after undergoing surgery in early January to address a chronic Achilles/heel issue, and this latest development will push back his timetable even further and will likely keep him out for most -- if not all -- of the upcoming season. It's a crushing development for the Washington Wizards, who had initially hoped to have Wall back around the start of training camp, but with the surgery slated for next week, the point guard likely won't be back on the practice floor until around the 2019-20 All-Star break, per Candace Buckner of The Washington Post. While the five-time All-Star has been productive when healthy, the extension he signed in the summer of 2017 now represents a significant albatross for Washington, as Wall is set to earn an average of $42.3 million over the next four seasons, the final of which carries a colossal $46.9 million player option.

    Wizards' John Wall: Undergoes surgery Tuesday

    John Wall underwent surgery Tuesday to address his left heel injury, Ben Standig of NBC Sports Washington reports.As was reported a little over a week ago, Wall's procedure will carry a recovery timetable of 6-to-8 months and officially ends his season. Tomas Satoransky has taken over as the Washington Wizards' starting point guard while Wall has been sidelined for the past six games, averaging 12.2 points (on 48.2 percent shooting from the field), 4.7 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.5 three-pointers and 1.0 steal in 32.2 minutes per contest during that stretch. Wall should be back to full strength for training camp in advance of the 2019-20 season.

    Wizards' John Wall: Season-ending surgery imminent

    John Wall will undergo season-ending surgery next week to address a chronic Achilles tendon injury in his left heel, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.Wall has been dealing with heel pain for the past few years, and it's finally reached a point where the star point guard will go under the knife to resolve the issue. The six-to-eight month timetable means Wall will be out for the remainder of the 2018-19 campaign and will still be rehabbing over the summer with hopes of being completely healthy heading into his age 28 season. While he's out of the lineup, Tomas Satoransky will presumably be the Washington Wizards' starting point guard and is worth a pickup in most fantasy formats. Bradley Beal should also see a noticable bump in usage. Despite playoff aspirations, Washington finds themselves 10 games under .500 and the 11th seed in the Eastern Conference prior to Saturday's games. Trade rumors regarding Beal and Otto Porter Jr. were prominent earlier in the year when the team was slow out of the gate, and it seems more likely than ever that the pair will be floated out in offers.

    Wizards' John Wall: Contemplating season-ending surgery

    John Wall (heel) is contemplating surgery, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports. If he were to go through with the procedure, Wall would be sidelined for six-to-eight months.This is a serious development for Wall and the Washington Wizards, who have clear playoff aspirations following the offseason signing of Dwight Howard and the recent trade for veteran wing Trevor Ariza. It's not immediately clear what kind of recovery Wall would go through should he not elect for surgery, but he's been periodically missing games since early December. If the point guard chooses to go under the knife, his season would essentially be over. In that case, Tomas Satoransky would presumably take over as Washington's starting point guard.
