Gortat: Players Need to Manage Injuries More Responsibly


(Marcin) Gortat took a moment to collect his thoughts when asked after practice on Tuesday afternoon about how the Wizards have managed the myriad injuries this season.

“It’s not easy,” he said. “We’ve got a lot of vets. We’ve got a lot of older guys. They’ve got to take care of their bodies. At the end of the day it’s the players’ responsibility. I personally can’t understand how this is possible, how people can get constantly hurt.

“You’ve got to do something. You’ve got to change something in your routine to become a bigger pro, to become a better player and more professional about stuff you do.”
