WASHINGTON (AP) — Two people familiar with John Wall's status say the Washington Wizards point guard will have surgery on his left knee.

One person tells The Associated Press that the length of Wall's absence will be determined after the surgery. The other says the expectation is that Wall could miss six to eight weeks.

Both people spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the Wizards had not announced that Wall needs an operation.

He had surgery on both of his knees before last season.

Wall was recently selected to his fifth NBA All-Star game. He is averaging 19.4 points and 9.3 assists this season.
