Raptors had a formidable duo of lowry+calderon going into the latter half of the season. That is now a thing of the past and I feel gravely worried about the raptors at this position. The raptors are one of those teams that really need a good distributor, and jose fulfilled that role amicably. He was key for the raptors getting out of their rut. Now I'm not saying jose is one of the best in the league, but there's no comparison between him and lucas.

Lowry is not playing anywhere near 100%. What if he has to sit again? Are we going to rely on Gay/Fields for the slack? A bandaid solution that will probably hurt more in the long run.
