I don’t really care about that. I’ve got to be able to move. I want to help the best I can. It might be the last two games instead of this one. If I do something stupid this week and I miss the last two games and the playoffs. But the thing that keeps going through my mind is if I don’t play and we lose this one, then the last two don’t matter.”
