John Wall was originally expected to return from his achilles injury next February. Now it’s looking like he won’t return for any of the 2019-20 season.
Ted Leonsis said John Wall "probably won't play next season" & starts each day reading updates on how he's progressing with his Achilles injury.

Ted Leonsis said “We are really taking care of John and are very, very proud of the way John has reacted to the rehab. He is a little bit ahead of schedule, but we have told John that your entire focus is to get well. I know he’s up for that challenge. John can’t wait to come back and get on the court and show all of you, but we’ve told him, don’t rush. We want you to be 100% when you come back and not aggravate any injuries and he’s agreed to that.”
Wall averaged 20.7 points and 8.7 assist per game last season. However, he only played in 32 games. Wall has only playing in 85% or more of the team’s games four times in his 9 year NBA career.
The last time the former Kentucky Wildcat was healthy and playing the full season he was averaging a double-double with 23.1 points and 10.7 assists per game.
