Mon Shootaround: Woodson

Mike Woodson spoke to media after Monday's shootaround:

 On Amar’e: “Still a game-time decision. We'll know when we get to the arena whether he's going to play or not. I know he's been getting treatment and that's a good thing. He'll let us know whether he can go or not.”

“Amar'e's a big part of what we do. I'd rather have him in uniform but his health is more important as we move down the road.”

On Lin: “He's game-time decision as well but he was out shooting. We'll see how it goes once he gets to the arena as well.”

“The Bucks is a team we're fighting for a playoff spot. We need all of our pieces in order to be successful. From a coaching standpoint, when someone goes down, it gives someone else an opportunity to step up and play. I'm going to push the guys who are in uniform to get the job done. That's what it's all about if you're talking about trying to win it.”

On Larry O'Brien trophies: “It's important. Why would you be playing for anything else? I don't coach just to coach. I'm coaching to try and win a title. You should play to win. If you can put guys in that mindset, anything is possible.”

“We've got to consistently play for 48 minutes and see what happens.”
