The Washington Wizards point guard John Wall is sidelined for 12 months due to a ruptured Achilles after slipping and falling in his house.
The 28-year-old player reflected over his current situation.
Here is what Wall said, per The Washington Post:
“I guess God is telling me something: ‘Sit down and get yourself fully healthy.’ I’ve played through injuries my whole career. I know a lot of people who’ve played through injuries and don’t sit down; that’s one thing I don’t like to do. If something is nagging or not broken, I want to play. And I guess it kind of caught up to me. Something I can’t control, but my love for the game is still there, and I’ll come back and conquer this like it was just a little step in the road.”
This season, John Wall averaged 20.7 points, 3.6 rebounds and 8.7 assists per game, while shooting at 44.4 percent from the floor and 30.2 percent from three in 34.5 minutes of action.
