On how he got injured and his feelings since:
"“I was playing pickup out here with the team on Tuesday, and I just happened to slip on a wet spot while we were playing. I was trying to do a move and stop, did a split, I thought I just overstretched it at first. I thought I just tweaked it a little bit, tried to walk it off but really couldn’t put any weight on it. Then I just took it day by day. I got an MRI a day or two afterwards and just found out the news. It was tough at first, knowing I’m going to be out. A couple of months was the longest time I’d been out before, but look it happens, at least it wasn’t anything worse with the knee and just a hamstring.”"
On timetables for return:
"“I’m just going to listen to my doctors. I don’t want to rush back and try to do things too quickly. I’m going to listen to my doctors and whatever timetable they give me for rehab after my surgery, that’s what I’m going to go with.”"
On when he’ll have his surgery:
"“I’m having it on Wednesday in New York. He’s the guy who did Jabari’s surgery [Dr. David Altchek], he’s supposedly one of the best in the business.”"
On disappointment from last season:
"“We had a great season the year before and then kind of took a step backwards. But we learned a lot from that last year. We also had a lot of injuries, a lot of nagging injuries off the bench as well as some with our starting guys. This summer, there’s been a lot of guys putting in work. Changing their bodies, working on their games and with the pieces we added here, we’re definitely excited for this year still. I’m confident these guys can still go out there and get the job done with the summer that we’ve had.”"
