Dr. Robert Anderson of Green Bay, Wisc., will perform the surgery to fix the torn Achilles, but no date has been scheduled for the procedure. 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. They say the tendon ruptured after slipping and falling in his home. The surgery was a "debridement and fix of a Haglund's deformity and a chronic Achilles tendon injury". He then slipped and fell in his home, which resulted in him suffering the injury.

The initial left heel injury was the 10th major injury to force missed time for the five-time All-Star, according to NBC Sports Washington. The timetable is set for 11-to-15 months, which could keep Wall out for up to all of next season, Wizards team doctor Wiemi Douoguih told reporters on a conference call Tuesday afternoon. An original 6-8 month recovery timetable after the first surgery is now naturally extended out.
