Source: Wiz­ards’ Wall needs surgery on heel

The Beaufort Gazette (Sunday) - - Sports - — WIRE SER­VICES

A per­son with knowl­edge of the sit­u­a­tion says Wash­ing­ton point guard John Wall has been told that he needs surgery to ad­dress bone spurs in his left heel, a pro­ce­dure that would keep the five-time All-Star side­lined for at least six months.

The per­son says Wall learned of the surgery di­ag­no­sis Satur­day. The per­son spoke to The As­so­ci­ated Press on Satur­day on con­di­tion of anonymity be­cause nei­ther Wall nor the Wiz­ards have pub­licly dis­closed the di­ag­no­sis. It re­mains un­clear when Wall will have the surgery, which would be sea­so­nend­ing.

Wall played in 32 of Wash­ing­ton’s 36 games this sea­son en­ter­ing Satur­day, av­er­ag­ing 20.7 points and 8.7 as­sists.
