It was (Washington Wizards Martell) Webster’s third back surgery in four years. He is currently rehabbing at training camp, but is confident he can contribute to the Wizards this season as their backup shooting guard. Still, he remains mindful of the back injuries’ effect — both for his career and the long term — and he decided last spring that he doesn’t envision playing professional basketball much longer.

“I know this game is probably not going to be the healthiest thing for me if I try to stretch it out as much as a possibly can,” Webster told The Post Thursday. “So I intend to really give everything I got for these last three years of my contract and probably walk away from this game so I can be healthy.”

“I’ve always wanted to retire young,” Webster said. “I love this game and I respect this game, but I only want to be in it as long as I can be effective and as long as I can feel comfortable.”
