That hasn’t stopped him from moving on with life though. The offseason has allowed Wall to focus more on his family. In the last month, we got to see his son Ace more often on Wall’s Instagram:
And his niece Carisma Lynn committed to play for the Guilford College (N.C.) Quakers’ women’s basketball team. Last season, Guilford went 20-6 overall and won the NCAA Division III Old Dominion Athletic Conference title.
Finally, you may be wondering how Wall is spending his time conditioning. For now, he’s started working on the battle ropes and we also get to see him without a boot on his left heel.

Before anyone gets too excited, Wall is still nearly a full calendar year away from playing NBA games on the court. Also, note that Wall is not working on leg exercises. But for now, it’s good for us to get a quick glimpse of Wall’s workouts early in his rehab process.
Wall isn’t the only star basketball player who recently ruptured his Achilles. Seattle Storm forward Breanna Stewart tore hers last April in the EuroLeague Women championship game.
Maybe we can see the two workout together on their road to recovery in a vlog series? Just a suggestion.
