Rudy Gay Plans to Play Again This Season
If there indeed was a conversation about shutting down Rudy Gay for the season at some point in the past 72 hours, the conversation ended rather quickly once it involved Gay himself.
Gay was in Toronto getting some treatment for a wonky back on Saturday while the team was in New York for the tail end of a back-to-back with the Knicks.
Asked afterwards about the talk of him being shut down for the year, Gay seemed to be suggesting it was all a misunderstanding.
“The only way I’m going to get shut down is if the doctors tell me I need to stop playing,” Gay said. “I’ve been forced out before and that’s not something I look forward to again.”
