Washington Wizards guard John Wall had surgery to remove calcium deposits on his left knee, the team announced Thursday.
Wall will begin rehab and be ready for the 2016-17 season. “I am determined to lead this team back to the playoffs and getting healthy is the best way for me to accomplish that,” said Wall. “I can promise the fans, my teammates and the organization that I will be focused on that goal throughout the summer and it will drive me to do everything I can to be ready for next season.”
