Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reported Tuesday that Washington Wizards point guard John Wall will reportedly undergo a procedure on his knee that will keep him off the court for six to eight weeks. Buckner called the surgery a "clean up" procedure.

He will also miss the All-Star Game.

It was previously reported that Wall had been looking for answers for his knee, even going back to visit his surgeon in Cleveland. 

Knee scope is tomorrow and will be performed in Cleveland by same surgeon who did his knee surgeries in May 2016.

NBA.com's David Aldridge reports that Wall had considered surgery, but initially opted for platelet-rich plasma therapy. His source says he wants to play, but "at some point you have to be realistic."

Wall is averaging 19.4 points and 9.3 assists a game, for the Wizards who sit sixth in the Eastern Conference and will be in dangered of missing the playoffs.

As far as All-Star replacement considerations, Clippers guard Lou Williams could be in the mix.
