Wall developed an infection after undergoing an operation on January 8 to fix his chronic Achilles issues. Douoguih estimated the recovery range for Wall's injury, "at John's age", to be from 11 to 15 months.

Traditionally Achilles injuries could spell a death sentence for basketball players, especially centres and forwards, because larger players find it extremely hard to make sharp movements and change direction after the injury. "He had a slight increase in discomfort".

Godspeed, Wall! The NBA needs him back sooner than later. Last season, when he had an operation on his left knee, Wall played in 41 of Washington's 82 games. He also underwent surgeries on both knees in 2016.
