Motiejunas’ rehabilitation includes a lot of core-strengthening and stretching. Each day, the exercises are tougher, and Motiejunas has been doing more work than ever to get back into playing shape. “I think no matter what kind of injury you get, it’s one of the worst things that can happen,” Motiejunas said. “What the guys do on the court and in practice isn’t as hard as what you have to do in rehab. “It’s extra conditioning, extra this, extra everything. I am actually working more than the guys practicing. It’s tough. I haven’t had a surgery in the last six years, and that was my tonsils, so this is different.”
