What is your normal day under these circumstances?
Lillard: My son just turned two, so he gets up every morning between 7 and 7:30 o’clock, so I get up and make him breakfast, change him, put him back into his bed, turn on his cartoons, entertain him, take him outside, put him down for a nap. Then I go work out while he´s napping. Then we make lunch. He´s like a full-time job. So, I´ve been having a really busy day just chasing him around.
So, how many shots are you able to get up in the course of a day now while you wait to see when and if play resumes?
Lillard: I mean, I got a court outside of my house and I kind of shoot around out there and have been messing around a little bit. But as far as like a real workout on the court or in a real gym I haven’t shot a ball since they told us we couldn´t go into our facility. Other than shooting on my hoop outside I haven’t been getting shots up. I just have my fitness center at my house, fortunately for me. So, I can do conditioning and lift weights and all that. I mean, other than the ball we don’t have options.
You know the last time you played a game was march 10th. That marks about a month since you´ve played. Does it feel like a month or does it feel like a year?
It feels like a year! It definitely feels like a year. I think the night before All-Star-Weekend I strained my groin. I think that was February 12th. So, from February 12th until maybe a month later – I missed All-Star-Weekend, then I missed six games post All-Star-Weekend. And then I came back and played like four games. And that time period was about a month, but I still felt like time was passing, but not a lot, because I was still going in and working out, getting treatment, following the team, I was at practice – I just had stuff to do. Now it´s a month of just nothing. Like I´m in the house every day. I´m on daddy day care every day. It´s two completely different things, but both times it was a month off for me.
