PHOENIX -- Terry Rozier addressed speculation that he was unhappy with his role and playing time in Boston over the first 10 games of the season and quickly put an end to the belief that he's not understanding of his role.

"If you don’t know me, then you probably think I’d say something like that," Rozier said of Wednesday's report from Bill Simmons of The Ringer. "I woke up to the news just like you woke up to the news. I don’t know where it came from, but like I said, I’m happy to be in this position where I’m at, to be playing on a team that’s mentioned to have a chance to be in the championship, so I’m not really worried what’s being said."

Rozier has struggled in the past week after having a strong start to the season and his minutes have been up-and-down as he's battled with consistency. The transition to a secondary role is no surprise for the fourth-year guard though, who is doing the best he can with his situation.
