Sources: Wall to have surgery; out for season

Washington Wizards star John Wall is planning to undergo season-ending surgery to repair bone spurs in his left heal, league sources told ESPN.

Wall is expected to finalize a timetable for the procedure in the coming days, sources said. Doctors have determined the procedure is necessary for Wall to remedy an issue that has bothered him for over a year.

Wizards coach Scott Brooks said Friday that Wall would see a specialist after the point guard missed Washington’s loss to Chicago because of the injury.

Wall, who is averaging 20.7 points and 8.7 assists per game, also missed a game with an injury to his heel on Dec. 10.

Tomas Satoransky started in Wall’s place against the Bulls.
