Hernandez is just focused on improving each day so that he's ready to play his part when called upon in the run-in.
"I want to be a world-class player, so I need to work on every aspect of my game: my movement, goals and body strength, because I'm not the tallest or the strongest," the 23-year-old told ESPN.
"I need to be ready to compete in this tough league because it's very physical, quick and technical. With the help of the coaches and my team-mates, I'm improving day by day.
"I do my best and if the manager wants me to play one minute or 90 minutes, I need to be ready to help the team."
