14 months have passed since John Wall was injured. NBC Sports Washington’s Chris Miller recently interviewed the Wizards’ star about how he is dealing with injury, that kept him out of action for so long.

“Now you understand how quickly and easily things can be taken away. Everybody was like ‘if he is doing these types of dunks, he can play.’ Well, there’s a lot more to basketball than just dunking. That’s not playing 38-to-40 minutes and then seeing how your body reacts the next day. You won’t know that until you play in a game. So, that’s why I’m not rushing the process and trying to re-injure anything. I’m just taking my time,” Wall said.

When being asked, if he’s going to give up his aggressive style of play, Wall answered: “Nope. That’s all I know.”
