Things are not looking for the Washington Wizards at the moment and it seems it got even worse really fast. According to different reports, John Wall has suffered a ruptured Achilles and is set to undergo surgery. After the surgery, Wall will receive treatment and will probably miss basketball action for another 12 months.

What is bizarre about this injury is that it happened at Wall's home where he slipped and fell pretty hard which caused the rupture of Achilles.

Washington Wizards medical staff said Wall developed an infection in the incision from the initial surgery he had this January. During the treatment to clean out the infection, they also discovered the rupture in his Achilles.
