    Raps have now lost 3 of 4. This all started vs Boston, when you know, they gave Lowry the rest. Lowry was playing so well before that Boston game.Now he's completely out of synch.

    I said it before and i'm going to say it again. DeRozan is 26. Lowry is 29. These guys don't need rest. Unless they're battling some nagging injuries, then sure give them a game off.

    I don't remember Michael Jordan or Iverson, or Kobe, Miller etc...getting a "rest day" during their prime years.
    Totally agree man (not on the rest costing us games, just on it not being necessary). Don't understand the resting players stuff. If guys are legitimately hurt? Of course sit them. If not, fucking play. Golden State isn't resting anyone, Klay played the entire 4th quarter against PHILLY just so he could get to 40 (the game was over).

    This attitude of guys breaking if they play more than 35 mins or don't get rest is just so lame. AI used to play 42 minutes per game and he was 165 soaking wet. Smaller than basically anyone who gets regular run nowadays and literally carrying his team's offense night in night out.

    Guys need to work and stay in condition to be able to play their minutes on a night to night basis. Lowry getting hurt last year imo was his fault, not anyone else's. That's why he went to work on his body in the summer because he knew his conditioning was poor.

    seriously, he went golfing with a sore wrist?
    The optics of this don't look good.

    "Kyle Lowry hurt his wrist against Charlotte last week. He wore a brace during all-star parties on Saturday night in New Orleans and golfed Sunday morning according to a source; he iced the wrist during the game Sunday night, missed two practices getting back to Toronto after a Turks and Caicos vacation, and then was ruled out Friday night with re-evaluation pending next week. Lowry apparently thought the injury wasn’t serious, but it didn’t go away. The Raptors medical staff apparently believe the weekend did not aggravate the injury, but Lowry will miss some games.

    “I woke up Thursday, and I thought I slept on it wrong,” said Lowry. He said he got treatment during all-star weekend, but it stayed a problem. He tried to shoot Thursday night and lasted one shot before quitting."

    Man, I just had a flashback to 2010... star player and impending free agent hob-nobs with guys on other teams who were coaxing him to leave, star player gets injured around the same time... I really don't think this is headed in the same direction, but damn, everything turned south in 2010 so quickly after the all-star break.

    for him to hide this and play the all star "game" anyways is really not a good look. very unprofessional IMO.

    Does anyone know the exact nature of KL's wrist injury? Rotoword just states it will be further evaluated this weekend. We really need him for Wizards Home and away.

    Whoever has lucky Buddhas start rubbing them and don't stop until he's back.

    Damn, I legit thought this was a thread from last year, can't believe it's happened again.

    Only minor bright side is it forces Casey to give Delon some burn and hopefully he continues to have a "Powell" effect this year.
    9 days off ....damn

    I'm going with the bright side here too. Delon will give us ball movement until he gets Casey'd. CoJo is beyond help now.
