According to Wizards head coach Scott Brooks, Wall consulted a specialist, Dr. Robert Anderson and recommended that top pick of the 2010 NBA draft will undergo a procedure.
“I’ve been with him for almost three years,” Brooks said of Wall. “He’s as tough as they come. He never complained. He wanted to compete for his team, but it got to a point where he had to make some tough decisions. And that’s why he met with a specialist.”
Wall is bothered by an injury in his left heel for more than a year and he is currently playing with pain.
Sources: Washington Wizards guard John Wall is considering surgery on his injured left heel, which would sideline him six-to-eight months.
