There’s different versions of 100 percent. “Until we kind of test him and see him and start him in 1-on-1 and 2-on-2 — and the pandemic hasn’t allowed him that opportunity to do those type of things … there’s no rush clearly. “As far as I have heard, he’s recovering fine. There hasn’t been a setback. But one thing that’s been a little bit difficult in the last couple months is our ability to oversee those things as much as you might normally would.”
