    I assume you are basing this on play in college because there has been no evidence of it through the pre-season and the first 4 games. Unless you mean "...he can hit open shots (if he stays on the floor long enough to take 6-10 shots and by hitting you mean 1 in 6) and semi contested shots too..."

    I'd like to see TRoss get some run actually. Move DD to SF, try out some TRoss. This is all based on Fields not producing as we move forward. If he picks his game up, gravy. If not, switch it up

    I approve this message. Casey should as well

    I'm assuming Lowry is day-to-day?

    Yeah, he's in a walking boot with no timeline for return. I'm thinking he'll be back after the dallas game.

    He has shown that capability actually in a couple game. Showing that he can create enough separations to get his shot off. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who has seen him make contested shoots with the rare opportunity his gotten.

    Brotherston seem to agree

    What was the point of drafting Ross given DD just got that extension and Fields was signed. Ross is in Casey’s doghouse.

    Stephen Brotherston
    Ross has a different skill set. As a rookie, he is far ahead of DeRozan on defense at the same stage of his career. Ross is a “Natural” shooter = he’ll get a lot better at this than DeMar will. Ross has the potential to be one of those shooters who hits shots when he’s well guarded – DeMar does not.

    Ross isn’t in anyone’s doghouse – I did an article on this at the end of training camp. Ross is the victim of a numbers game. Casey has Anderson, Fields, Lucas & most important Jose Calderon who will all be looking for minutes at SG – all these guys are more ready to contribute than Ross. As Casey said – Ross is the future – he just has to catch up to where Alan Anderson is (That’s going to be tough)

    Ross will get a few minutes here & there – hopefully he pulls it all together and takes minutes from his competition at some point during the season.

    I think that is a given.

    Watch out for Crowder as well.

    No Lowry means trouble. You're left with last year's team plus Valancunias.

    Back-to-back. On the road. Tough building. Well-coached opponent. Can't say I'm too confident.
    Pffffft! And Fields. Seriously. C'mon slaw.

    Fields will go off tonight. Seriously, how does a pro baller forget how to shoot?

    Maybe Jose can get the starters going (Fields and Bargs). May as well look at the bright side

    Based on what? I hoping he stays out until he's 100%, and that's not going to be 4 days. His style of play doesn't seem well-suited to not being 100%. He's a key part of the future - hopefully they let him heal.

    Based on nothing really, its just not a serious injury. I hope he comes back when he's 100%, but with his attitude I doubt he'll have the patience to sit out

    This is the guy that came from a torn ACL in a couple of monthes in college. Now his playing his home town team on Saturday. I really don't think a sprain ankle is going to keep him out. No matter how bad it looked.

    Brotherston was clearly talking about Ross' college game.

    "...all these guys are more ready to contribute than Ross. As Casey said – Ross is the future – he just has to catch up to where Alan Anderson is (That’s going to be tough)

    Your telling me that Ross can't contribute more than fields right now.

    I really don't get why the coaches can't fix Fields' shot. If it's all confidence than he needs to grow a pair, because he's getting paid millions to defend and make open shots.
