What Inglis Says

Having a first impression like Inglis did when he saw his first action playing basketball after breaking his foot, Inglis spoke about his experience at Summer League during this year’s media day and how it was all part of the plan for him getting back into playing shape:

"Summer League was just about playing basketball again, being in a playing mode.  So, I was healthy but I was not ready to go, so I was not 100 percent healthy.  So, Summer League was part of the process for the season right now, so after Summer League, I worked hard to get back in shape.  So, right now, I just feel good and ready to go."

As mentioned before, Inglis has been doing the right things to correct that first impression for Bucks fans as he has shown the caliber of player he is during this year’s pre-season.  Yes, it’s only pre-season, but given where things were for Inglis only a year ago, it’s nevertheless encouraging the signs he’s showing. But, according to Inglis, he knows that it’s just the beginning of getting back into the swing of things as the long season nears:

"After summer league I had a good month in August where I worked out with the guys. My ankle felt better and my body just started to feel better. I’m in shape right now. It’s just a start and I have to keep pushing right now."
