    Are we even going to see Kyle play again this year? there's really no reason to rest him anymore.
    Well, considering he's likely hoping to cash in on one last big contract, he probably prefers to rest given there is nothing to play for and an injury in one of these meaningless games could hurt that chance. Heck, the franchise probably prefers not to see him get hurt either.

    If the younger core guys are healthy I suspect they play to get a little more development time, but I do think they are banged up to some degree so we might not see them either. But in Lowry's case, there's no real upside to him playing.

    Play all the starters and rotation guys. No pressure, just go out and have some fun. None of them played last night so they are rested. A hat tip to the fans and fuck the league and Silver.

    Since the Raptors have the 7th pick secured, it would be cool to play the full team (if healthy), the last 2 games and blow out the other teams.
    it would be pretty cool on one hand. on the other, it would be a gigantic middle finger to the league that explicitly stated "we don't give a fuck about your play-in tournament and flagrantly tanked this stretch run."

    personally i think that's pretty funny, but it might not be great lottery juju. other teams are mailing it in just as blatantly but in most cases they have shut their guys down for what they claim are season ending injuries so that's somewhat less embarrassing for the league. except for the horford thing, i can't ever remember that happening.

    Coach Nick Nurse said it ``remains to be seen'' if Siakam, VanVleet, Lowry and Anunoby will play again this season. ...
    They're all out today, so I doubt they play again this season.

    No real reason to play him either.

    His market in free agency, whatever it is, has already been established.

    As a fan I'd love to see him play though.

    Grange doesn't know what the fuck is happening 99% of the time.

    Grange running a long Lowry GROAT tribute piece on SportsNets this morning.
    Great spot but sure sounds like a eulogy in Toronto....could either be a tribute because they know he's leaving or a feel good piece because he's re-signing.

    Could be. Maybe that's all it is. I just think it's more. That smarmy grin on his face when he answers questions just screams out at me that he's thinking "I know something you don't know."
    I have a strong gut feeling he's sticking around till he retires. He's gonna buy a nice fancy house in Toronto and ride out his career. He stay.

    Lowry has been at peace since we won the chip and he finally got his vindication and validation. His reputation was further entrenched last year when we massively over-exceeded expectations and he, in particular, had a brilliant series against the Celtics. He is man finally comfortable in his own skin, having received all his flowers and can now move on (or stay) knowing his legacy is etched in granite, with the additional benefit of mentoring the new core being the cherry-on-top.

    He's just too damn happy. Somethings up.
