John Wall 'leaning toward' season-ending heel surgery

  • Wizards' John Wall to have surgery on heel; out for season

He then missed Washington's next game two days later in Indiana.

Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal (illness) will play against the Chicago Bulls on Friday.

John Wall, the Wizards' five-time all-star, is reportedly expected to undergo season-ending surgery on his injured left heel following consultation with a foot specialist. The Wizards are 1-3 in those games, with their only win coming in triple overtime against the Phoenix Suns.

As the team's starting point guard and half of the All-Star backcourt, Wall will obviously be hard to replace. Washington is now 11th in the East with a 13-23 record.


Tomas Satoransky will likely start in place of Wall for the rest of the season.

The 28-year-old has played a crucial role for the Wizards this season and performed well even through the pain. He was average 20.7 points and 8.7 assists per game. Trevor Ariza ($15 million) and Markieff Morris ($8.6 million) are the most practical to be moved due to their expiring contracts. On Dec. 16 in Los Angeles, he scored 40 points with 14 assists against the Lakers.

Wall was limited to 41 games last season, mostly because of surgery on his left knee.
