Houston Rockets star John Wall had a long road back to the NBA, but it could have been much worse, as a foot amputation was once allegedly on the table.

Wall’s comeback has proved to be an inspiring one. Almost out for two years due to an injury, including a ruptured Achilles, Wall is ready to compete for a championship.

During an interview with Shams Charania, Wall recalled all of the rehab that he went through as well as infections he had to fight off during his tenure as a Washington Wizard.
