“We haven’t put together […]

Fields To Have Hand Examined

After the Raptors’ latest slow start against the Mavs, head coach Dwane Casey acknowledged that a change to his starting five would have to be a consideration.

Injury may make that a necessity for Saturday’s home matchup vs the Sixers on Saturday (7PM, TSN, FAN590).

Landry Fields, who has started at small forward in every game for the Raptors, visited a hand specialist on Friday to examine discomfort in his right hand that he’s reportedly been experiencing for weeks.

DeRozan Hitting His Stride And Pounding The Boards

DeMar DeRozan has become more aggressive all over the court in the early season.

DeMar DeRozan and the Toronto Raptors.

In the star-laden universe that is the NBA, real prominence means that people plug the player first, and the team second.

Perhaps in no other game does the personality of the team’s best player dictate how that team is perceived.

So the question is: is it DeMar DeRozan and the Toronto Raptors or the other way around?

“As long as my name is mentioned, I don’t care,” DeRozan said. “As long as I’m with […]

Quick Hits From A Thunderous Loss

Kyle Lowry landed on Serge Ibaka

After a week that saw the Raptors take a modest step forward in their development, it’s hard not to view Tuesday’s 108-88 road loss to the Thunder as anything less than two steps back. Some quick hits from the second biggest blowout of the night south of the border.
