“We’ll see — I have to talk to Claude and we’ll go from there. “We’ll have to make that decision later today,” said Kane.
(from yesterday) ”I’m not sure if he’s a player for tomorrow. I will have to check on that. Normally, we like to go a little longer with that. And nothing’s changed — you want to set a player up to succeed. I’m not sure if I feel comfortable with that right now.”
