“It’s always in the back of your head. But at the end of the day, there are some injuries you got to fight through. Sometimes your team needs you out there.

And I definitely want to be out there. I don’t think I ever missed three games in a row in my career. I didn’t want to do it. I don’t like missing games. It’s a pride thing. It’s an ego thing.

I was definitely close to being 100 percent before this game,” the “Greek Freak” told reporters after the victory against the Miami Heat on Friday (22/03).
