DeRozan drops 43 as Raptors down Celtics, 107-97

The Raptors dig themselves out of a huge hole without Kyle Lowry, and beat the Celtics (again). It was the casual way coach Dwane Casey said it. Before the Raptors game against their natural rivals, the Boston Celtics, he was talking up the team’s newest acquisitions Serge Ibaka and P.J. Tucker. After the squad’s recent slide, the long wait to see them retake the court with their new look only heightened the excitement. Fans across Toronto were turned up. And then Casey dropped it: Kyle Lowry, three time All-Star and the team’s undisputed leader, would sit out against the Celtics...

Celtics blow 17-point lead and lose to revamped Raptors

New Raptors Serge Ibaka and P.J. Tucker energize a relentless effort by Demar DeRozan that propelled Toronto to 50 points in 11 minutes out of halftime. Toronto erases a massive Celtics lead and brings themselves back into the race for the top of the east. A swarming defensive effort holds Thomas to 20 points. The entire Celtics team took off for Toronto as the trade deadline sun set to calls for and against the team’s stagnancy. The common ground both could agree on, with 23 games remaining, that this one would be massive for Boston with leads of two and four games over Washington and...

Raptors' Kyle Lowry could sit out another game

Toronto Raptors Head Coach Dwane Casey said he is unsure how long guard Kyle Lowry (wrist) is going to be out, but that "it's not a one-day thing." What It Means: Lowry was icing his wrist on the sideline of the All Star Game and reportedly went golfing on Sunday, so it doesn't seem like the injury is too serious. However, considering Casey's comments, Lowry could miss another game or two. DeMar DeRozan and Cory Joseph will gain some value in fantasy if Lowry misses more time. Lowry is averaging a career-best 22.8 points to go with 4.8 rebounds, 6.9 assists and 1.4 steals over...

Kyle Lowry will not play Sunday as the Raptors face the Blazers

Toronto Raptors Kyle Lowry (right wrist) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Portland Trail Blazers. What It Means: Lowry sat out Friday Night as well after suffering the injury on February 15. He played in the ALL-Star game last Sunday, making it seem like the injury is not too serious. However, it appears the wrist issue has a chance to linger with the point guard sitting out a few games down the stretch. Cory Joseph will start in his place. Joseph is projected for 13.1 points, 3.7 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 1.3 steals, and 25.3 fantasy points by our...
