John Wall out for season
The Washington Wizards announced late Saturday, John Wall will be our for the rest of the season as he will undergo a season ending surgery to repair bone spurs in his left heel. Wall is expected to be out for six to eight months for surgery and recovery.
Wall has averaged 20.7 points per game with 3.5 rebounds per game and 8.7 assist per game this season in some games hiding the pain very well for example putting up 40 points and 14 assist against the Lakers but in some games showing the pain and the results of it just like the Cavaliers keeping him to one point in their Dec. 8 game.
Tomas Satoransky has been taking John wall’s place in the last two games including Saturday’s against the Hornets. Averageing 6.1 points per game.
The Wizards have eight games remaining in the regular season and if they want a chance at playoffs without Wall they will need to play balanced games as they did in their 130-126 win Saturday against the Hornets but they also will have to work on maintaining a lead as they had a lead of 114-121 late in the 4th quarter but ended up allowing the Hornets to catch up to them bringing the game to a thin wire.
