“We thought we could maybe try to play him into shape once he got back,” [Randy] Wittman said. “After looking at it, it’s unfair for me to put him in that position. and I think what we’re going to do, we’re going to probably not play him for a while, get him on a program here, where he can really go after it from a conditioning standpoint to get himself back into shape. It’s not fair for me to do that to the kid.”

What does “really go after it from a conditioning standpoint” mean? Apparently, it means some late-night gym sessions. Or possibly early-morning.

“Let’s get it,” Blatche wrote on Twitter at 3:32 a.m. on Wednesday.

One of his confidantes then wrote at 3:47 that he and Blatche had “just left gym” and got “good work in.” Blatche retweeted this information a few minutes later. I’ve done a lot of things at 3:47 in the morning, but go to the gym to work on my conditioning is not one of them.
