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

Wizards guard John Wall's season is likely over.

Star point guard John Wall is 'planning to undergo season-ending surgery' to fix bone spurs in his left heel, ESPN's Brian Windhorst and Adrian Wojnarowski reported Saturday, citing league sources. Per the Wizards, the procedure was determined to be the best course of action to relieve pain and inflammation in Walls heel after consultations with more than one doctor.

Brooks would not speculate on the severity of the injury.

The 28-year-old Wall had been trying to play through heel pain for years, according to Scott Brooks.

For the first time since 2013, Wall will not be an All-Star after being selected five consecutive times.

Through 32 games this year, Wall is averaging 20.7 points on.444 shooting, 8.7 assists and 1.5 steals in 34.5 minutes a night. The third-year player has been a go-to fill-in for injured Wizards starters this season thanks to his versatility and decision-making.

For a team that has been in nonstop tumult since the season began, Wall's injury only further exacerbates a frustrated locker room and fanbase. Forward Markieff Morris is also out with a neck injury.
