John Wall won't return from his ruptured Achilles during the 19-20 season regardless of how long it is delayed.

Wall suffered the injury in January of 2019.

“We’ve said all along that we can’t wait until John plays next season, and I think that will still be our attitude and our stance,” Tommy Sheppard said in a recent interview. “We’re very anxious to see John Wall in uniform next year. I don’t think any of this changes that.”

The Wizards expect Wall to be back for the 20-21 season.
