Maynor Anxious to Reclaim Backup Role
Recently he traveled to Orlando, Florida, to partake in workouts with the team as they participated in the NBA Summer League. When we caught up with (Eric) Maynor, the obvious question regarding his recovery was posed first.
“The knee’s doing real good,” Maynor shared with HOOPSWORLD. “I’m getting better day by day. That’s why I’m out here just working out, just trying to get healthy.”
Maynor has progressed to the point that he’s now engaged in on-court workouts. He should be back in the saddle fully healthy by the time the Thunder’s training camp starts.
When asked if he thought he would return to the team in previous form (he was averaging 4.2 points and 2.4 assists in 15.2 minutes per game prior to the injury), he said this: “Of course, yes. I’m working toward that.”
