    Guess there was an interview with Nick today where he spoke a fair amount to Gasol’s status... saw something about it on some random insta raps account which quoted and didn’t sound like good news. Can’t find anything to the rest of what he said, but along with what we already know, NBA.com had this to say below, which doesn’t sound great...

    “When asked about the ideal amount of games Gasol would play in before the playoffs, Nurse said between eight and 12 (per Sportsnet's Brad Fay). Nurse's ballpark estimate might be conjecture but with just 27 games remaining on the Raptors' regular season schedule, it could mean that Gasol is sidelined for another 15-20 games.”

    I feel like sometimes when Nick has said a guy is close to returning, as he did of Marc before the Allstar break, it doesn’t really pan out that way. It’s happened a couple of times now this year. Think maybe the other was with Norm?
    I think that number is taken out of context from Nick. He basically said Gasol could play now but they are being super cautious with his leg because he re-aggravated it once already. Then said they would only be concerned about the timing of getting him back to get him enough reps to get in shape before the playoffs. Basically he'll come back when he's healthy and only in that final stretch would they start to even consider risking him playing at 95% health because at that point there is a rust cost to the rest.

    There was a follow up question about how many games Nick thought players needed to really get in rhythm before the playoffs and that's where he gave the 8-12 game number. It was not a prediction for Gasol.

    No way can you offer him more than a one year deal this off season or one year and a team option. Hope he takes it.
    This was true last summer. Nothing has changed. Obviously the team will offer him a one year deal, unless a multi year option is far cheaper than I can imagine it being.

    Marc is having his offseason in the middle of the season
    Suck but his playoff health is more important then some random regular season games. Seems that this hamstring may be a long term issue if we're being so catious with him. Be a big blow if this thing flares up again in the middle of a 2nd round series

    Last time Marc came back from injury it was against OKC. Nurse had both Serge and Marc starting at the same time. But the Suns have a smaller front court so I'm not sure what will happen this time around.

    Good question. Nurse is a creature of habit so I'd bet Gasol would start but the minutes would be more skewed than normal. A big goal would be to get Gasol to the post season healthy
    Yeah, he likes to get them right back onto the saddle. Thanks

    Will he be starting, Serge to the bench?

    After next season we need to consider moving forward with FVV and Terence Davis or other more inexpensive option and regretably let Kyle walk.
    You can't be left holding a $30M declining asset and you can't keep both FVV and Kyle. Big boy pants and tough moves needed.
    After next season we need to consider that Lowry may still be a better player than FVV by a good margin. If Giannis brings his talents to Toronto, I'll ride or die with Kyle motha fukin' Lowry.

    You just hope at that point Kyle will come in cheap since we overpayed him that extra year and it a place his family grew up. Think its a pretty easy sell if we have another star player joining the fred, pascal, O.G core that summer as well
    The hope is we get a discount, but it's a players league and they look out for themselves. Paul got his max from Houston at the age of 33. Kyle's age now. It's not inconceivable that Kyle will want the money.

    Hopefully Kyle goes the way of Dirk and Duncan rather than Wade or Kobe. Dirk and Tim took pay cuts to remain with their teams and to help their teams get better. TD's cut allowed them to go after LMA in free agency. Wade didn't get what he wanted from Miami and took off to Chicago which was weird. He ended up in Miami in the end though but at that point he was pretty much washed up. Kobe was given a huge extension even though the team was trash. Would have been weird to see Kobe play for a different team too. But Kobe's extension hamstrung the Lakers for those years until he officially retired.

    Lowry's not at their level but he means a lot to the Raptors. But I'm not sure if Masai would pigeon hole himself and his team by surrendering all their cap space to get a big star, just to keep Lowry happy. But Lowry is not wired like most people either.

    May/June 2021 will be really, really interesting.
