Rudy Gay (back) practiced on Thursday and plans to continue playing through soreness and stiffness.
Gay has been in pain since hurting himself on March 1st. Since then, he's shooting just 36.7 percent from the field with 4.2 turnovers per game. Although Gay will continue to play, Dwane Casey has suggested that he could be shut down if the injury continues to limit him. "Your back is such a big part of whatever you do," Casey said. "He hasn't been himself since he's had the back issues."
