Washington Wizards guard John Wall tore his Achilles in February and is expected to miss the entire 2019-2020 season. While the timetable for Achilles rehab could theoretically put Wall on track to return near the end of next season, the Wizards plan to be cautious with their point guard. Wall should be off the fantasy re-draft radar at this point. Expect to see Bradley Beal and Ish Smith play most of Washington's guard minutes, with Smith in particular in line for an increase in production as the team's starting point guard.
Washington Wizards point guard John Wall (Achilles) is expected to miss roughly 12 months after undergoing surgery to repair his left Achilles tendon. It sounds like Wall is going to be out for a full calendar year, so there's a chance he doesn't return until possibly after the 2020 All-Star break. Wall is most likely going to be limited after he returns, so he's basically looking at a lost season before it started. It's looking like Wall is not going to be even worth grabbing in fantasy leagues next year. At best, he might return late next season, but probably won't mean much for fantasy hoops.
Washington Wizards point guard John Wall (heel) will undergo a debridement and repair of a Haglund's deformity and chronic Achilles' injury in his left heel. The procedure is expected to take place sometime next week and will have him on the shelf for six to eight months. He finishes the 2018-19 season with 20.7 points and 3.6 rebounds per game through 32 outings . With Wall on the mend it will be Tomas Satoransky seeing more playing time at the point, with Trevor Ariza serving as one of the primary scoring options. Thomas Bryant is also expected to see more playing time with Chasson Randle also expected to see a larger role off the bench.
