What a tough year for John Wall. The Washington Wizards just announced that their star point guard will be out for a full year after rupturing his left Achilles tendon.

Wall was already recovering from a surgery he had on January 8 to repair bone spurs in his left heel and suffered the rupture after slipping and falling in his home. Doctors diagnosed the rupture while cleaning out the infection to the incision from the original surgery. He will undergo surgery soon, which will be performed by Dr. Robert Anderson in Green Bay, Wisconsin. He’s expected to return to full basketball activities in approximately 12 months. Wall’s four-year $170 million contract extension kicks in next season; at least he got that secured before this happened.

Coincidentally, this is the same injury that Wall’s former teammate DeMarcus Cousins just returned from. Maybe Boogie can give him some recovery tips?

    That $170 is a silver lining here. Actually more like a diamond-encrusted platinum lining.

    Not that this doesn’t suck, but his future and his (hypothetical?) children’s futures are secure.

    I hope his recovery goes well and I wish he would get the heck up out of Washington.

    Going to be tough for a guy that relies on his speed so much to come back from this one.
