POSTGAME QUOTES

HEAD COACH GREG MOORE

On Nick Robertson:

Lower body injury. I don’t know to the extent yet. He’ll get assessed, and we’ll know more tomorrow.

 

On Josh Ho-Sang:

More so a maintenance day, nothing serious. His hip was bothering him a little bit and just wanted to make sure that this early in the season we weren’t making it worse and prolonging what’s going on with him.

 

On the upcoming week of practice:

It’s a really big week. This league is a very, very competitive league and every single night you have to come out and be ready to play. We were flat at the start. We had a hard time finding our game, so it’s going to be important this week that we get back to just an everyday commitment to how hard we are going to work so that we get comfortable being uncomfortable. We get into games and there’s no excuse for questioning where that energy level is coming from and we’ll keep homing in on what our team details are.
