Chris Douglas-Roberts strained his neck in the third quarter of tonight’s 93-89 preseason loss to the Knicks.
He said his head went back and it caused “a little ligament tear.” But x-rays were negative and he’s listed as day-to-day.
Douglas thinks Saturday’s off day is all he will need and it won’t keep him out of anything.
“No, it’s not,” he said. “Nah. Not at all. I’m going to ice it down, do what I have to do tonight, see how it feels in the morning. But I won’t be missing anything. I can tell you that now.”
You would expect this type of answer from Douglas-Roberts, a tough-minded player who doesn’t want to sit down after everything he did this summer to get ready for this season.
