Both Andrea Bargnani, the starting centre, and Antoine Wright, the backup swingman, missed Saturday's practice with what coach Jay Triano described as the flu. They are expected to be game-day decisions for the 6-7 Raptors, as will Marco Belinelli, Toronto's backup shooting guard.
Belinelli missed practice Saturday with a sore left groin. He said he suffered the injury in Friday's win over the Miami Heat when he slipped on a puddle of his perspiration and involuntarily did the splits while attempting to guard Dwyane Wade.
"Like a ballerina," quipped Belinelli of his misadventure. "It was my sweat, so it was completely my fault."
