John Wall Aint Walkin Through That Door

Wizards point guard John Wall met with the media on Monday to discuss his injury...

John Wall has missed the past 10 weeks with a "stress injury" and there's no timetable for his return. Anyway, you can read the full transcript here, but for the sake of preserving history, we've pieced together some of the saddest quotes, one-by-one. Being a Wizards fan is awful.

●"I want to play basketball, you know what I mean?"
●"[Blake Griffin] broke his kneecap. I think mine was just a stress fracture."
●"I was in the beginning stages of breaking my kneecap."
●"I had a little bit of cartilage problems."
●"Underneath my kneecap it's kind of rough."
●"I mean, you never know how it's going to go."
●"You just hope it heals the right way."
●"No, no timetable."
●"I'm still going to have to have to be playing a certain time limit whenever I come back."
●"I'm not going to be fully in the best of shape"
●"It's still going to be tough."
●"I couldn't even run on it. I couldn't stretch my leg out at one point. It's been getting better, it's just got to take time and see where it goes from here."
●"[Biggest comeback risk] Going back to the beginning stages. Probably breaking my kneecap."
●"It's the cartilage part left that I'm trying to get cleared."
●"All I do is sit at home."
●"I don't really eat too much anyway."
●"Yeah, but [RG3's injury] is a game. Mine's been 3-4 months [chuckles]."
●"You don't want to miss a whole season, but if it comes to it, you have to."
●"I'm not trying to think that far ahead."
●"Everything else around my knee is in the right order it's supposed to be. There's just this one problem I'm trying to get over."
●"You can't cut, you can't run full speed, you can't jump like you want to."
●"So you're basically out there just wasting your time."
●"[Injuries] are just tough times you have to deal with."

Ummm... ouch. Another franchise PG with his career in peril? This is not good for the league.
But that's just me.

Re: John Wall Aint Walkin Through That Door

I really want to see this kid come back healthy, if he doesn't at least turn into a fringe All-Star I'm going to feel a little cheated as a fan. Too much talent not to put together some type of success.
