    Default March 10 - Detroit Pistons - Bargnani returns & Xrays on Calderon negative

    Raptors just tweeted and informed the media that Bargnani will make his return vs the Pistons tonight. It will be interesting to see how he does after such a long time off, and with some doubt as to whether he would return until Tuesday.

    Couldn't help but grimace when he went down.. I've done that before, grade II or III ankle sprain for sure.

    Grade II Ankle Sprain:
    A grade II ankle sprain is more severe partial tearing of the ligament. There is usually more significant swelling and bruising caused by bleeding under the skin. Patients usually have pain with walking, but can take a few steps.

    Grade III Ankle Sprain:
    Grade III ankle sprains are complete tears of the ligaments. The ankle is usually quite painful, and walking can be difficult. Patients may complain of instability, or a giving-way sensation in the ankle joint.

    Ankle is never the same after that...

    The call for the second half? The raps tighten up the d, close to within 10 and lose by 15

    Ugly thus far.



    Good news:


    Toronto Raptors ‏ @Raptors
    Calderon will not return tonight. RT @Paul__Jones: From @RaptorsPR : X-rays on Calderon negative #SN590 #smithandjones

    Default That game was borderline unforgiveable

    Their body language sucked...They looked two steps slow all night...I didn't see one redeeming quality to tonights game other than its nice that Bargnani is back. I've said before and I will tell anyone that will listen...I don't care if the Raptors lay it on the line and lose. I do care when millionaires phone it in, after two days off

    What the hell happened to them out there? It looked like an NBA Team vs. A Middle School team...

    Positives: Demar had points, but useless points. Bargnani returned, but again useless.. Fluke Injury to Jose, now we know he gets to stay.

    Negatives: Everything else.

    It happens.

    I don't think there is anything we can take away from this game that is meaningful.

    The Raptors were due for a stinker. Every team has a bad night - OKC and LAL have lost to Washington this year.

    Remember, the Raps roster is lacking - I'll leave it at that. If this was the norm, I'd be pissed, but it is not. The effort and intensity are usually there.

    Lets see how they respond tonight. My thoughts would be very much different with another outing like this versus Milwaukee tonight.

    Default Casey telling it like it is....

    But even that injury cannot explain how terrible the Raptors were from start to finish in a performance that had Casey livid after the game.

    “There was no defensive focus. There was no screening. There was no fundamental we executed tonight on both sides, and I’m shocked,” said the coach. “We walked out there tonight like we had won 20 games in a row, with no sense of purpose. We can have every excuse . . . (but)

    whatever the excuse is, it’s not valid. This is the NBA and you have to walk out every night with a focus and be ready to compete and we didn’t do that.

    Especially when they had two off days as well. Milwaukee is going to be hard and ugly. Keep the ping-pong balls coming!!!

    Depending on Jose's injury severity this is now truly judgement time for Bayless....is he or isnt he capable of playing the point at a decent level. It shall be interesting to follow this.
