The protagonist is carrying a wounded man with him on his shoulder to his destination.

"How for have you borne me?"
"Around two leagues. I'd say."
"And you are not tired?"
"Some," I said "but not enough to need rest just yet."

I'd like to know what "just yet" means.
Thank you in advance for your help.

    It means that something will be soon.
    Not yet = not at the moment
    Not just yet = not at the moment, but soon
