Wizards confirm John Wall will have foot surgery, miss 6-8 months

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

Friday's game was the fourth he's missed this season.

On top of being 13-23 and in eleventh place in the Eastern Conference, the team might be forced to play the remainder of the season without the services of John Wall.

Wall is planning to undergo season-ending surgery on his injured left heel after seeing a foot specialist Saturday in Wisconsin, according to ESPN, though he hasn't yet made the decision final. The Wizards were at home for a game with Charlotte on Saturday night.

As the team's starting point guard and half of the All-Star backcourt, Wall will obviously be hard to replace.

The former punter recently called the Texas Tech-Baylor game last month alongside former Green Bay Packers linebacker A.J. Interim head coach Joe Philbin is expected to get a shot to land the gig full time, but a new name has crept in.

Wall had been averaging 20.7 points and 8.7 assists on the season. Washington is now 11th in the East with a 13-23 record.

The Washington Wizards' horrific, dramatic 2018 season has been painful to watch at times.

The Wizards will be without John Wall so Beal will be leaned on heavily to carry the offense against the Bulls. Trevor Ariza ($15 million) and Markieff Morris ($8.6 million) are the most practical to be moved due to their expiring contracts. The 28-year-old's new four-year, $169.3-million extension will kick in starting next season.
