Excerpts from a media interview Thursday with Paul Millsap.
Millsap said he'll practice lightly Thursday and plans to play Tuesday against the Los Angeles Lakers during the Jazz's regular-season opener. He's listed as day-to-day with right quadriceps tendinitis.
Millsap on coach Tyrone Corbin's comments Wednesday that he isn't guaranteed to be Utah's starting power forward this season: What can you think? That's the man. He's the head coach. Either you like it or you don't like it. Whatever happens, you've just got to deal with it.
Feeling like he's obviously a starting power forward in the NBA: Obviously. Obviously. But other people might see different. People have their own opinions about things. If his opinion is to bring me off the bench — if he sees fit to do that — and it'll help our team more, then OK.
