Dennis Schroder opened up about playing for the Los Angeles Lakers despite being injured.

Schroder said he has done that his entire career and just doesn’t want to miss games, due to injuries.

“I have been playing like that my whole career. I am like that. I am built like that. It doesn’t matter what organization I am in. I am going to do the same thing.

It’s not because I changed organizations. I think that people know what I am about and that’s just trying to win games, trying to be out there and trying to help my teammates.

I don’t try to miss any games, even if I tweak my ankle or whatever it is. I just try to be out there and be competitive,” Schroder told reporters, via Harrison Faigen of Silver Screen and Roll.

Schroder had 25 points, six rebounds and eight assists in the 115-127 overtime win over the Utah Jazz on Saturday.
