John Wall to miss a year after rupturing Achilles tendon in fall at home

Turns out John Wall is going to be out longer than he thought.

The five-time All-Star will undergo surgery to repair a ruptured left Achilles tendon, the Wizards announced Tuesday (Wednesday, Manila time).

Wall was recovering from the heel surgery he underwent in December and the initial incision become infected and required debridement.

The new injury was discovered when Wizards director of medical services and orthopedist Dr. Wiemi Douoguih went in to do a routine procedure to clean out the infection.

Wall will be out for 12 months following the second surgery.
