Toronto Raptors’ Forward Quincy Acy Recalled from D-League, Rudy Gay Practices Tuesday
March 26th, 2013 at 6:00 PM
The Toronto Raptors (26-44) recalled 22 year-old rookie forward Quincy Acy from their D-League affiliate, the Bakersifeld Jam on Tuesday (March 26). He averaged 2.8 points and 1.8 rebounds in 7.8 minutes while he was with the Raptors. It'll be nice to see his Reggie-like beard on the bench, and hopefully Dwane...

Toronto Raptors’ SF Rudy Gay Will not Play Tonight (Back Stiffness)
March 10th, 2013 at 6:03 PM
Toronto Raptors' SF Rudy Gay will not play tonight due to back stiffness. Casey had mentioned the possibility of resting him down the stretch to heal his nagging back issues, so it's no big surprise. If Terrence Ross doesn't get a plethora of playing time tonight, it's time to take...

Toronto Raptors’ C/PF Andrea Bargnani Will not Play Tonight (Strained Elbow)
March 10th, 2013 at 5:04 PM
Raptors' C/PF Andrea Bargnani will not play tonight due to a strained right elbow. This is the same elbow that kept him out of the lineup for an extended period of time, and he will have diagnostic testing done tomorrow. One can only hope this means that Valanciunas sees 30+ minutes,...

UPDATE: Toronto Raptors’ C/PF Andrea Bargnani Will Play Tonight VS Warriors
March 4th, 2013 at 10:32 PM
Updating a previous item, Andrea Bargnani will suit up for the Toronto Raptors tonight. Dwane Casey has elected to insert him into the starting lineup next to Jonas Valanciunas, with Amir Johnson coming off the bench. This is a lineup we haven't seen, and it seems as though the Raptors...

The Toronto Raptors have announced that they have re-assigned rookie PF/SF Quincy Acy to their D-League affiliate Bakersfield. In his 20 games played he averaged 3 points and 1.8 rebounds in just over seven minutes per game. The move makes it quite obvious that Andrea Bargnani is going to be slated...

UPDATE: Toronto Raptors’ SF Rudy Gay Will Play Tonight, Andrea Bargnani Game-Time Decision
March 4th, 2013 at 2:32 PM
Updating a previous post, Raptors SF Rudy Gay will play through his back spasms tonight, but C/PF Andrea Bargnani is a game-time decision (reaction to medication). The season just gets worse for Bargnani, and this surely means rookie C Jonas Valanciunas will see significant minutes if the 7-foot Italian can't...

Toronto Raptors’ SF Rudy Gay Questionable (back Spasms) for Tonight’s Game Against Warriors
March 4th, 2013 at 2:14 PM
Toronto Raptors' SF Rudy Gay is questionable (back spasms) for tonight's game against the Golden State Warriors. He did not dress in Saturday night's loss against the Milwaukee Bucks. The Raptors officially, (but not mathematically),  ended any chance at reaching the postseason with the setback in Brew Town two night's ago,...
