The new injury will require another yet-to-be-scheduled surgery, which will be done by Dr. Robert Anderson in Green Bay.

The 28-year-old elected to have a season-ending surgery in December with hopes of avoiding any additional damage.

Wall suffered the rupture when he slipped and fell at his home, per the team.

Wall developed an infection in the incision from initial surgery on January 8 (a debridement and fix of a Haglund's deformity and a chronic Achilles tendon injury in his left heel that was also performed by Dr. Anderson), and he suffered the rupture after slipping and falling in his home. "The rupture was diagnosed by [Wizards doctor] Dr Wiemi Douoguih during a procedure to clean out the infection".

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey New Game+ promised this month
Considering AC3 originally released on Wii U, bringing this new, remastered version just seemed somewhat logical to begin with. This being said, Assassin's Creed III Remastered coming to Switch shouldn't be all that surprising in the first place.

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. He also had surgery on both knees before the 2016-17 season.

The Wizards are three games outside the playoffs in the Eastern Conference but team owner Ted Leonsis says he expects the team to push for the postseason, despite Wall's absence. And Achilles injuries are known to be hard to return from at all, let alone do so at the skill level held prior. Surgery means Wall is likely to miss most, if not all, of next season - his first year of the four-year, $170 max contract extension he signed two summers ago.

Wall played in 32 games for the Wizards this season averaging 20.7 points, 8.7 assists and 3.6 rebounds per game. At 22-31, the Wizards are now 10th in the East.
