“You can never control it. You look at this year. I’ve really only missed three games. The COVID stuff happened, and I missed eight or nine games. That’s the stuff you can’t control. There hasn’t been any injury that hasn’t allowed me to be on the floor. It’s been about really managing and making sure that I’m also ready for the playoffs. But I just want to be on the court. With the All-Star break coming up, I didn’t want to stop. Feel good. My body feels great. We’re playing well as a team. I just want to keep building every single day, so by the time we get to the playoffs, we are ready.“
