Recovering John Wall Expects to be Better Than Ever Upon Return
One of the most explosive point guards in NBA history is nearing a return to the court.
Washington Wizards’ All-Star John Wall has not played since December of 2018 after suffering a left heel injury. A month following his initial injury, the 29-year old guard ruptured his Achilles tendon after slipping at his home.
“I’m watching these guys play. Like these young guys, they killing our team and they looking at our bench and stuff. Just know I got those written down in my notes for when I come back when they start next season. I can’t wait to see them what I got, what I’m about. But I’m gonna be better than what I was before, and that’s the scary part. … They ain’t even get the best of John Wall yet, they just got a clip of him,” said Wall on the All the Smoke podcast.
While speaking with Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson, Wall also addressed the rumoured beef between him and All-Star teammate Bradley Beal.
“They always say, ‘Well, they don’t like each other. They downgrading each other.’ Ain’t no John Wall without Bradley Beal. Ain’t no Bradley Beal without John Wall. We make each other better. We accommodate each other so well on the court and it works easy for us.”
Ruled out for the remainder of this season, Wall is expecting to be back in the fold by the start of the 2020-21 campaign.
