Wizards say John Wall will have season-ending surgery | AP sports

Wall will finalise a timetable for the procedure in the following days.

On Friday, head coach Scott Brooks told reporters that Wall was off to see a specialist as early as Saturday to examine the bone spurs in his left heel.

On Saturday morning, Wall visited foot specialist Anderson where he received the recommendation to undergo surgery. Superstar point guard John Wall will miss six to eight months due to heel surgery, per a report.

Brooks would not speculate on the severity of the injury.

The procedure would sideline Wall 6-8 months.

That would effectively end his season and most certainly end the Washington Wizards season as they can't even win with him on the floor.

Wall, who is averaging 20.7 points and 8.7 assists per game, has been able to manage the pain and looked like his All-Star self in some games this season, such as on December 16 in Los Angeles, when he scored 40 points with 14 assists against the Lakers.

Wall had missed their last game against the Bulls with that injury. Whether the team would consider moving Bradley Beal and/or Otto Porter (who each have two-years and $56 million left on their max contracts) is another story that is a long-term decision.
