Wizards’ John Wall could miss start of camp after knee surgery
Washington Wizards guard John Wall is not expected to participate with the U.S. national team this summer and may not be 100% by the start of camp in the fall, reports Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post.
Wall is recovering from recent surgery on both knees and is expected to finish his recovery by the start of the 2016–17 season.
He underwent procedures to remove calcium deposits from his left patella tendon and loose particles from his right knee. He has dealt with knee injuries in the past, missing 33 games at the beginning of the 2012–13 season.
Wall is one of the 31 finalists to make the national team and compete at the Rio Olympics in August.
He averaged 19.9 points and 10.2 assists this season as the Wizards failed to make the playoffs, finishing 10th in the Eastern Conference.
