    This sucks.

    Let the Shamorie Ponds Era begin. Or at least let's see what Terence Davis can do with more minutes.

    Shamorie Ponds is already up on his 2 way so is Brissett. The other option is buying out someone “looking at you Stanley Johnson “ and bring someone else up on a 10 day.
    The Raptors are well into hardship territory at this point (at least 4 players injured for at least 3 games), so they can add a contract without needing to waive anyone, at least until they get a couple bodies back (once they are no longer hardship eligible they'd need to waive a player, either the new guy or someone else). Even with Thomas returning (and FVV's clock just starting now), they have been missing Marc, Pascal, Norm and Hernandez for a while.

    Nu blet (ffs)...

    Soon we'll have to call our d league squad at this rate.
    VanVleet out vs. Trail Blazers with hamstring injury

    Matt Thomas, though, will likely be available

    The point of this paragraph I think was to say Lowry is playing good, but bolded 3 times you managed to either give a back handed compliment, a sneaky insult, or just an outright passive aggressive insult.

    never change, golden!

    Meh, Lowry loves putting up big numbers early in the season to secure his all-star spot... which is a surefire lock this year (dumbass fan-voting aside). In some ways, the injury to Pascal was a boon to show the world that he's still got "it". Lowry looks happy and rejuvenated and he's getting his due this year. And finally, he's only directing his anger towards the other team instead of his coach, his teammates and Masai.

    The key will be to find the right balance between Lowry, Pascal and FVV and of course, have everyone healthy going into April, May & June. We didn't get to see Pascal and Lowry operating together at their peaks yet. And I'm really looking forward to the Lowry/Pascal + RHJ/TD/Boucher unit. That group has the potential to wreak absolute havoc.
    Yeah, I have no problem with the choice to play Lowry so much and have him carry the load, it's what's best for the team right now. Just hoping we get healthy before it bites us.

    We may not see that lineup. Those bench guys hopefully keep getting used together, but in terms of offence this team needs to use its bench minutes to rest one of Lowry or Siakam (or both but those minutes would suck). But we'll likely keep seeing Lowry+bench, probably with Serge (Boucher at PF hopefully, to keep him in the rotation once Gasol is back, or at C in the meantime but probably with a FVV or OG rather than a Siakam out with them). Siakam + bench should be way better once we stick to using those three, because he will have FVV to space the floor for him - unfortunately Serge complicates things there because Siakam at the 3 with Boucher and Serge is tough on spacing too.

    Oh, I agree, long breaks screw up his shooting sometimes. Still a little concerned about the heavy minutes combined with the high usage. 40 minutes on 25% usage (plus 33% assist rate). That's a lot, no matter what, and Lowry is 5 years older than he was last time.

    But Lowry's already had a long break from playing, this year. And it was just a thumb injury, so he should have plenty in the tank to keep up this pace until some reinforcements get back. The more he plays, the better he seems to shoot, IMO.

    Real nice to see the shooting come around in the second half. Good thing the Nets stopped being amazing three point line defenders like they were in the first half.

    Lowry is so great. Hope we get healthy soon, he's going to run himself into the ground like 2014-15 when DeMar was out around the same time of year.
