David, it’s been quite some time since that December game against the Spurs, but what do you recall from that night? When was the moment you knew that something was wrong? David Nwaba: “I knew once it happened, I knew what was wrong. It was a loud pop and I just went down to the floor. I looked back to see if anybody was there and who kicked me, nobody was there. So I knew, I knew exactly what kind of injury it was.”
How has the rehab process been for you overall? David Nwaba: “It’s been pretty hard. Stressful at times, frustrating because I’m expecting to see quick results, quick improvements. It’s a 10- to 12-month recovery and it takes time and patience. So that’s the biggest thing for me, I am working on patience and not trying to get too down on myself or frustrated when I’m not seeing quick results. But in the beginning, it took a long time. I was in a boot for I think two and a half months, and then I was slowly walking, so I wasn’t seeing results. But now every week since the ninth month I’m seeing dramatic improvement, and every week, like this week, I’m feeling more explosive. I’m just seeing more results every day and weekly instead of just monthly. So I can see the improvements now I could see the light for sure.”
Have you gotten a chance to reach out to any of your new teammates and have you been able to work with them? What excites you most about the city of Houston? David Nwaba: “Right now, I haven’t seen too many of my teammates. I’ve run into PJ Tucker, Eric Gordon. Not too many guys I’ve run into right now but I’m sure they’re doing their own things, just trying to get their body right. doing the little things to keep their body in shape and to stay in shape and that’s what I’m trying to do as well. I’m just focused on just getting my body right. And just being ready for this season.”
10. David Nwaba, who was acquired by Houston prior to entering the bubble, “looks good,” according to a source, as he continues his rehab from his Achilles injury and prepares for next season. Internally, Nwaba is being viewed as a key rotational piece, with the expectation that he’ll be a solid contributor in the 2020-21 season. Nwaba initially tore his right Achilles tendon last December as a member of the Brooklyn Nets before being waived by the team in early January.
