WASHINGTON – Washington Wizards point guard John Wall says he is not sure he can play next season while recovering from a torn Achilles tendon.
Wall spoke with reporters at halftime of the Wizards' last regular-season game on Tuesday night.
He said his goal is to return next season, "but every time the doctors dispatch me and reach that point, I'll know."
Wall appeared in just 32 games this season, averaging 20.7 points and 8.7 badists, before undergoing an operation on his left heel in January. Then he broke his tendon in a fall at his home in February.
Wall said he will rehabilitate his Achilles in Miami during the offseason.
The five-time All-Star wore a gray boot on the left foot and on the bottom of the leg.
"My job is to go back to the place where I think I can be," he said.
