The bench has been rolling, and it's not even full health. Wilcox is apart of the "Gangsta Squad", but he's been sidelined with a thumb injury. Here's the latest update on Wilcox.
"I'm going to get out there and just see what I can do," Wilcox said before the afternoon session. "The other day I got out there and did some shots and layups and stuff like that with the team. So, today, try to get more active, just take it one day at a time."
Wilcox playfully celebrated the ability to once again palm the basketball, a step in his recovery, but admitted he's still uncomfortable given the injury is to his dominant hand.
"Look, I'm back in action," Wilcox joked while palming the ball. "So, like I said, I'm just going to go out, get a good practice in, play a little defense, push off and things like that and that will let me know where I'm at.
"It's still sore, but it's going to be like that for a while, so I'm just trying to do whatever I can and just get back out here on the court and then see what I can go through and see what's comfortable."
Kevin Garnett thinks Sunday's session will be good for Wilcox.
"This is when you need practice times right here for guys who haven't been in the flow of things," Garnett said. "It's good to have him back. Today should be a very interesting, passionate day, so it's good to have Chris back."
