There are new rules now saying players on two-way contracts are eligible to come to the bubble and also for postseason play. You fall in that category. Does it matter if you’re on a two-way or standard contract at this moment? Michael Frazier: Man, (I’m) just trying to play. I don’t really get caught up in that stuff because I feel like it’ll take care of itself. As long as I’m coming in every day, working hard and doing what the coaching staff and front office ask me to do, I think all that stuff will take care of itself. So I’m not really too caught up into that. I just want to make sure I’m ready to play when my number’s called and I can go out there and contribute and help the team win.
Storyline: Two-Way Contracts
Mike D’Antoni talked with me about the importance of depth and the rotation. You haven’t gotten that much of an opportunity, so some people might not be as familiar with you. So for those folks, who is Michael Frazier? Michael Frazier: I think I’m a guy that can defend multiple positions, knock down open shots and do whatever the team really needs me to do. I can kind of just be a chameleon, get in where I fit in. Just see what the team needs that night and try and contribute the best way that I can. But I think I’m a 3-point threat. That’s what I’ve been known for. And I think that’s what got me to this point. So just trying to go out there and focus on defending, being a good teammate and supporting my teammates and doing whatever Coach asks me to do, whatever my teammates need me to do to the best of my ability.
Q: What kind of communication has there been with players? Daryl Morey: With players, it’s pretty intense at the workout level and the health and wellness level. We had guys rehabbing. Luckily, they were at a stage they could just get the workout programs and do them themselves. (Guard Michael Frazier, out with a fractured left forearm, was the only player listed out with an injury when the season was suspended.) They can do workouts directed by Javair (Gillett, the director of player performance) and Willie (Cruz, a strength training assistant) and the crew there. And then John Lucas gives them basketball workout plans as well.
