Washington Wizards guard John Wall will undergo surgery to fix a ruptured left Achilles tendon, the team announced today.

Wall, 28, had left heel surgery days into the new year after consulting with a foot specialist. There aren't many injuries that can keep you out that long, but a ruptured achilles is certainly one of them.

The rupture was discovered when Wall had a procedure to have his infection cleaned out.

Dr. Robert Anderson of Green Bay, Wisc., will perform the surgery to fix the torn Achilles, but no date has been scheduled for the procedure.

Wall's surgery in January was for a debridement and fix of a Haglund's deformity and a chronic Achilles tendon injury in his left heel. It was determined it was suffered during a fall at home.

The Wizards say Wall is expected to return to full basketball activity in approximately 12 months from the time of the surgery.

The Wizards have tried to build a roster around him, and Wall's $170-million, four-year contract extension kicks in next season.

The initial left heel injury was the 10th major injury to force missed time for the five-time All-Star, according to NBC Sports Washington.

Wall averaged 20.7 points, 8.7 assists and 3.6 rebounds in 32 games this season.

The Wizards are now 22-31, 3.0 games back from the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference. Last season, when he had an operation on his left knee, Wall played in 41 of Washington's 82 games.
