“My foot is great. It’s still attached, still there so that’s a good sign,” Green joked. “How much pain I’m in? I’m good. I’m able to go out there and play, so I don’t like to talk about certain things. If I’m on the floor, I’m going to play hard. Everybody’s in pain at this point in the season. Everybody’s fighting through something, I’m dealing with something and it is what it is.”

The scouting report goes out the window at a certain point, you just have to go out there and give it all you got.”
