Washington Wizards guard, John Wall believes he is ready for his return, after undergoing his latest knee surgery.

The guard says upon his return, he will play like his former self, not letting the injury he just recovered from to deter him.

“I’m just going to be John Wall,” he said Monday after the second full-contact practice of his comeback from an operation on Jan. 31. “That’s all I know how to do.”

The Wizards are 14-11 without Wall since his recent absent, they dropped to sixth in the Eastern Conference and are 40-33.

“It’s been good. It’s been bad. We’ve played well, at times. Sometimes, we haven’t played well. Like when everybody was saying that they (were) playing better without me, that was great. The good thing is, I’m glad we did we did win those games when we did, because if we didn’t, right now, we would be in a situation where we might not be in the playoffs,” Wall said. “I feel like everybody should have given those guys credit for playing well.”

“When I’ve had an injury in the past, I don’t think about it. I go out there and play the same way I played before, and that’s with a lot of aggression, a lot of attacking mode, a lot of fast pace. And I’ve been doing that,” he said. “All I had to do was show that glimpse and that showed me I was being myself again.”
