The Wizards were at home for a game with Charlotte on Saturday night.

Wall missed the Wizards' last game - a 101-92 loss to the Chicago Bulls that saw the team fall to 13-23 on the year.

This is undoubtedly a major blow to the team's outlook for an already-disappointing 2018-2019 campaign.

The All-Star guard played in the first game after Christmas, against the Pistons in Detroit, and scored 21 points.


Wall is averaging 20.7 points and 8.7 assists per game. While he had a handful of underwhelming games over the past month or so, his production will be hard to match. Tomas Satoransky has been starting at the 1 in his absence.

The 28-year-old has played a crucial role for the Wizards this season and performed well even through the pain. He signed a 4-year, $170-million extension with the Wizards in 2017. Trevor Ariza ($15 million) and Markieff Morris ($8.6 million) are the most practical to be moved due to their expiring contracts.

That made surgery a near no-brainer for Wall and the team as it does not make sense to risk further injury for a meaningless season. More of the fallout from this injury will become clear in the coming days and weeks.
