    I didn't expect to start this with an injury report. Raptors fans are going a little crazy, although nothing more specific has been reported yet. In any case, my guess is that there will be some interest about Jonas V's successes and failures this year.

    ----

    From Ryan Wolstat:

    Pictures going around of #Raptors Jonas Valanciunas in a walking boot. Waiting for confirmation on extent of injury.

    But no crutches and fact he is walking on it is a good sign one would think.

    Team doesn't expect to update Valanciunas situation until tomorrow, but doesn't sound like any of us will be talking to him tomorrow after all.

    Calling it a Left Calf Strain at the moment. Doesn't sound like a big deal.

    Hopefully they both stink, or we'll be hearing from those who said we should have taken Drummond.

    ummm *coughs*

    He has blown 3 assignments by clearly not running back and feeling his man.

    I was so in this crowd right here... I was also kind of hoping we took Bismack at 4 last year. Oh well can't change the past.

    Good series for Jonas after looking overwhelmed in his first action.

    Showed some good big man fundamentals when he caught that pass in traffic by turning and keeping the ball high before making the bank shot. Then on the next trip down, he beat Monroe to every spot he tried to turn in the post before blocking his shot and starting the fast break.

    Man I wanted Drummond bad. I mean, big men with his size and athleticism don't just grow on trees. I'm hoping Waiters earns his draft spot or else I'm going to be crying in my beer about Drummond.

    Jonas looks unimpressive just like every other time I've seen him...

    I was down with Drummond too but I was a fan if the Dion pick, so I guess I will go cry in my beer now...

    I'm okay with the Dion pick as well, just saying it hurts to pass on a talent like Drummond. I haven't seen Dion play enough to really make a judgment yet so I'm going to hold off until I see him play as a rookie.

    You did not want to pick Leonard with the #4 pick.

    Stop.

    Here's what Amico just tweeted:
    Sam Amico @SamAmicoFSO 10 Oct
    Asked scout at Raptors-Pistons game to describe Jonas Valanciunas' debut in a word. He bounced between "soft" and "scared."


    Say what you will but no one ever called TT "soft..."

    I remember some reports that we were considering him. Oh well.

    Hm. Sorry to be racist against my own race but, the skinny white kid from Europe with "potential to be very skilled" looks soft against NBA guys? Shocking. :chuckles:

    It's only his first NBA action and things obviously change...he could get comfortable and add a few pounds of muscle (but not much with that frame). But he looked soft to me since the first time I saw tape of him. I still figure he'll be that way throughout his career. Sometimes you can't fix "soft".

    Except that 'Sheed is an All-World defender compaired to Monroe. I agree though, Detroit will be a handful whenever they figure out their PG situation.
