    Man in one week it's the playoffs. I know it's close but I wish I could freeze myself and fast forward till then, the wait is going to be agonizing.

      I would assume so. Rest vs rhythm.

      My guess is today Lowry and Ibaka sit. Then all hands on deck for tune up game Wednesday
      This is a good problem to have, but who is going to play point? 48 min of Delon? (if FVV's back is still wonky). Do we say damn the 905 and call a PG who will play 3 nights in a row (2 in their finals)?

        It's a meaningless game for the Raptors. Put Powell in to play a bit of pg, or give Demar some time there. Important thing is to rest the key players.

          Lewenberg has a pretty good article on the Raptors culture reset:

          Best quote came from Fred:

          “I think the biggest thing that came out of it was holding everybody accountable, holding everybody to the same standard,” said Fred VanVleet. “Obviously we’re in a league of stars and superstars and you’ve got to massage guys’ egos, but I think this year more so than last year we’ve held everybody to the same standard and guys are being held accountable, from Kyle and DeMar all the way down to me and Lucas [Nogueira], or whoever, Bruno [Caboclo] when he was here.”

            I suspect FVV is fine and will play. And if not, no rest for Lowry.

              Or just play Lowry 20 minutes and ask him not to play defence.

                What happened to that Brown guy?

                What can Brown do for us?

                      I'd rather sit Lowry and Fred if he's banged up. I won't even be watching or PVRing this game, instead I'll be running errands. Blasphemous for KeonClark to do so but just shows how little it means. I need to get things done before the playoffs take up 50% of my nights with zero exception to this rule.

                        He's playing in G-league finals. I guess they'll keep him there

                          He's playing for the 905, who are in the Finals right now. I think they care about their G-League team and won't screw with it.

                            JV seems like the most likely but he got praised by the coach earlier in the year so who knows?

                            “(Lowry’s) in great shape, Jonas (Valanciunas), all of our guys,” said coach Dwane Casey. “I don’t know of anyone who’s not in great basketball condition. This is probably the best summer our guys have had as far as body fat, weight, conditioning, running, since I’ve been here.”

                                CJ seems to be less "athletic freak looking" than the rest of our wing players. But what do I know?
