Washington Wizards’ 5-time all-star point guard John Wall is considering surgery on his left heel that would end Wall’s season.
The injury would keep Wall out 6 to 8 months according to Candace Buckner of The Washington Post.
Shams Charania of The Athletic is reporting that Wall has attempted to play through the pain from bone spurs this season, but the pain is becoming too much for the five-time All-Star to overcome. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Brian Windhorst report the point guard is planning to have the surgery.

The Wizards currently sit a 13-23, yet still have a chance to push for the 8th seed, but this team had a failed offseason with Dwight Howard, Otto Porter regressing and many other issues with the team. Bradley Beal has been rumored in many trades as well, so this might be the time that the Wizards chose to tank.
The surgery is not for sure, they have been conflicting reports from different sources. It is confirmed he needs the surgery, but not 100% that he will go through with it.
