Re: Raptors 2015/16 Season Discussion Thread

I don't even mind Lowry getting throw out, I think you need a few players in each squad with that level of intensity in the game.

Not a great game, but to be fair, the Kings are a handful to deal with.

When JV comes back they should try BB and JV starting and use Scolas scoring off the bench. BB is a beast on the boards, quickly falling in love with his game

DEMARRE CARROLL UNDERGOES SURGERY
Posted: Jan 06, 2016
The Toronto Raptors announced Wednesday forward DeMarre Carroll had arthroscopic surgery this morning on his right knee. The procedure was performed by Dr. David Altchek at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City. Carroll’s status will be updated as appropriate.

Carroll sat out Monday’s game at Cleveland with a swollen right knee. He had played in the previous five contests after missing nine games (December 7-22) with a right knee contusion.

Carroll has averaged 11.7 points, 4.8 rebounds and 31.9 minutes in 23 games. He had a season-high 21 points on two occasions: October 30 at Boston and November 22 at the Los Angeles Clippers. The Raptors face the Brooklyn Nets tonight at 7:30 p.m. at Barclays Center (TSN/TSN1050 Toronto)

And with that my friends ... we start to hurt :-(

Biyombo has been a fantastic fit and surprise for us ... really lucky to have both him and JV healthy and ready to battle for us ... Just love what they give us in terms of options for the 5-spot in late game situations and match ups!!
But having said that ... defense is where it all begins and we've just taken a major lunch in the gut! Hopefully he can make it back in time for playoffs ... if not. We're a first round exit yet again...

Anybody have any idea when he will be back or is he done for the season? Such a big blow, he really is the glue that elevates this team to East contender status.

I haven't heard or seen anything yet ... it was just announced this morning .. so I'm not expecting he'll be back until just before the playoffs .... if we're lucky.

Better than what I'd expect too ... but look how long he was out initially and that was without surgery .... so i'm hopeful, but skeptical :-/

I really don't see a series victory this year unless they can add a legit starting 4...

I actually didn't attend.

I planned to, then life got real busy and I completely forgot to try and buy tickets. When I remembered, the tickets had sold out completely.

I was at the last OT game when we played the Nets in London, so in some comforting way, I was at least glad another fan that maybe didn't get the chance to go last time, got to see a thriller this time.

Great win, DeMar and Kyle had horrible shooting nights, but we still found a way to win.

Re: Raptors 2015/16 Season Discussion Thread

That's too bad. Their number one fan in the UK missed out.
Oh well. Life is very much like that. Ups and downs and every year is busier than the last. I didn't even get to see the game at all!! Forgot to pvr it and I don't have the primo sports package ($$$) to watch the replays :-(
But at least they one ... So we'll just hang out hats on that and look forward to all star weekend ;-)

Re: Raptors 2015/16 Season Discussion Thread

I've watched 3 of the games on this little 4-game win streak, and point guard play has really stood out to me with this team. Lowry is back to his form from late last season, and Joseph is a very steady presence off that bench. I feel like this team only gets near its peak when those PGs are controlling the action.

If they could add a go to front court piece I'd have a lot more faith in them. But relying on Lowry/DD every night isn't going to get this team past the second round at best
