Scottie Barnes has been ruled out of Game 2 with a left ankle sprain.
Barnes yelled in pain when suffering the injury in Game 1 and thought it would be worse than a sprain.
"I thought it was going to be bad, man," Barnes said. "I hit the ground and I was like, 'Damn. It's just the beginning, just getting started.
"But, afterward, I was just still trying to have positive thoughts, and keep myself into it."
Barnes declined to give a timeline for his return, but said he multiple times he was feeling better each day.
"I don't know," he said with a smile, when asked when he could be back on the court. "Might be soon. We just have to see. Feeling better, though, each and every day."
