  • Wizards' John Wall to have surgery on heel; out for season

Washington Wizards John Wall has made a decision to undergo foot surgery, which would cause him to miss the rest of the season, according to multiple reports. The Washington Post's Candace Buckner was the first to report the possible need for surgery and Hoop District has confirmed it. Wall will finalise a timetable for the procedure in the following days. He played in only 41 games last season because of a knee injury and has been plagued by the heel injury for several seasons, according to Chase Hughes of NBC Sports. Wall met with specialist Dr. Robert Anderson on Saturday, who recommended the surgery. How they decide to play the rest of the season, fully tanking or competing for the No. 8 seed, will be interesting to see with the trade deadline a little bit over a month away. Friday's game was the fourth he's missed this season.

The Indian cricket team is ahead by 346 runs in the ongoing third Test match against Australia being held at the MCG . India had declared their first innings on 443 for 7 and then bowled out Australia for just 151 runs.

Despite the injury, Wall still has performed at an All-Star level at times, averaging 20.7 points and 8.7 assists per game this season. Trevor Ariza ($15 million) and Markieff Morris ($8.6 million) are the most practical to be moved due to their expiring contracts.
