John Wall said his attempts at playing through injuries finally caught up to him after he recently ruptured his Achilles.
"I guess God is telling me something. To sit down and get yourself fully healthy. I've played through injuries my whole career. I know a lot of people who played through injuries and don't sit down. That's one thing I don't like to do. If something that's nagging or not broken, I want to play. I guess it kind of caught up to me," said Wall.
Wall was already out for the season after getting surgery to repair bone spurs in his heel. The Achilles rupture was discovered after a doctor was cleaning out an infection in the area.
"I understand I had an infection and getting off antibiotics, I felt like something wasn't going right. I slipped, but I don't think that's the main reason...my pain was still the same. I didn't have discomfort," added Wall.
Wall also stated that Bradley Beal should start in the All-Star Game.
"I felt like he should have been an All-Star starter, with the numbers he's put up and carrying this team throughout the year. You don't see too many other guards doing that other than probably James Harden."
