Quinn Cook, who has seized the moment in the absence of Stephen Curry, stopped by “The Greg Papa Show” with Bonta Hill on Wednesday to discuss his rise with the Warriors.

Asked about the possibility of forcing his way onto the 15-man playoff roster, Cook played it cool.

“Whatever happens, happens,” Cook said on 95.7 The Game. “It’s not in my control. The only thing I can control is being the best teammate and player I can be out there.”

In order to slid Cook onto the roster, the Warriors would have to cut a current player. Omri Casspi has been the subject of such speculation and addressed the topic after practice on Wednesday.

Warriors president of basketball operations/GM Bob Myers told Papa and Bonta that the roster situation will be addressed seriously, but at the appropriate time, pointing out that injuries could impact the decision.

Cook also talked about how much it’s helped to serve as Stephen Curry’s understudy. Cook knew the two-time MVP back at his day at Duke where he overlapped with Seth Curry, Steph’s younger brother.

The bond has only grown during Cook’s time as a Dub.

“Since I’ve been here, he’s been the ultimate big brother, the ultimate mentor,” Cook said. “He’s helped me so much.”
