John Wall will miss the remainder of the season with a hamstring injury.
Wall sustained a Grade 2 hamstring tear, which will cause him to miss Houston’s final 11 games.
It’s a little less of a blow considering Houston is at the bottom of the Western Conference and out of playoff contention. The extra time off will give Wall time to recover from the injury moving into the offseason and net season.
Wall found success in Houston this season, averaging 20.6 points per game to go along with 6.9 assists and nearly one steal per game over 40 games. Wall scored 20 or more points in his last eight games before suffering an injury.
Wall told local reporters in Houston he believes he can return to All-Star form.
“I still think I’m an All-Star in this league,” Wall told reporters. “I still think I’m a big-time player in this league. In the last two years, there’s a lot of talent that came into this league, and there’s a lot of guys that are still in this league that were talented before I got injured. But I feel like when I’m healthy, I can go against the best of them.”
Houston is in line to get an early draft pick and could play a piece as a veteran leader for a Rockets squad that is clearly building for the future. Hopefully he comes back healthy and in top form next season.
