Don’t expect John Wall to return for Wizards if NBA season resumes

John Wall is in the process of rehabbing from an Achilles tendon injury, and although he’s been making significant strides, he probably won’t return to action this season.  “We’ve said all along that we can’t wait until John plays next season, and I think that will still be our attitude and our stance,” Wizards general manager Tommy Sheppard said, according to The Washington Post’s Candace Buckner. “We’re very anxious to see John Wall in uniform next year. I don’t think any of this changes that.” It takes about 11-15 months for an Achilles tendon injury to heal, but the Wizards knew he would be out longer than that. Even with the coronavirus postponing the NBA season, Wall probably won’t be ready to return for the current suspended season. The COVID-19 outbreak has actually done more to hinder Wall than help him, especially considering NBA facilities are shut down as well as many health care buildings. The Wizards are being extremely cautious with Wall, and it’ll be for the best if forgoes the rest of the 20
