The surgery for this latest injury has not been scheduled yet for Wall, but the Wizards' team doctor, Wiemi Douoguih, says that it will probably take place next week. The 28-year-old's official recovery time has been listed at 11-15 months. Douoguih says that Wall was not wearing his walking boot at the time of his fall, which is okay for him to do while at home. The fall took place on January 29th, which means he walked around for six days with the injury.
Wall is making $19.2 million this season and is signed through the 2022-2023 season. He is on pace to make $38.2 million next season, $41.2 million the following year, $44.3 million the year after that, and $47.3 million in 2022-2023. The No. 1 overall pick of the 2010 NBA Draft out of Kentucky has dealt with injuries for most of his NBA career, including him playing in just 41 games this season before undergoing surgery on his left knee. He also underwent surgery on both knees in 2016, as the five-time All-Star could have his career be in jeopardy with this recent incident.
