Utah Jazz forward Joe Ingles has been impressively durable and currently holds the longest active streak of consecutive games played, a testament to his training.
With 281 straight games played, Ingles recently discussed what it takes to accomplish the feat, crediting his fitness routine and lifestyle for his durability.
“We do a lot so we spend probably like an hour before every practice and game on the table getting treatment,” Ingles said, according to the Desert News’ Eric Woodyard.
“We spend probably about the same, 30 minutes to an hour after the game, to be reasonably healthy when we can. But yeah, especially for me, doing the treatment before and after the game is why I’m able to be out there every night.”
Wizards’ Isaiah Thomas Wants to Find Permanent Home
Washington Wizards’ guard Isaiah Thomas is looking to find a permanent home as he gets his career back on track.
Thomas is currently on a one-year minimum contract with the Wizards, and while he didn’t rule out a long-term deal with Washington, he did state his goal is on this long-term future.
“I want to be somewhere I can be three or four years,” Thomas said, according to Fred Katz of The Athletic.
“I was in Sacramento for three years. I was in Boston for three years. Even though that’s not a long time, I was comfortable there. My family was able to build relationships with people around the organization, people around the city. It just made things easier. So, what I am looking for — obviously, I want to get paid the most I possibly can, because I feel like I deserve that, but I also want to be able to be somewhere for a while.”
Thomas is averaging 13.2 points and 6.2 assists per game for the Wizards this season.
