Over the next two days will be having two season previews. This Week in Raptorland with me and John Chick will have an interview with Amir Johnson and some thoughts from DeMar DeRozan too. In addition we will have a season preview with the one and only Jack Armstrong.
In case you missed it the Raptors final pre-season game vs. Bucks never made it out of the first quarter on Friday. The court was deemed unplayable do to condensation coming up from the ice below the court. If I remember correctly they have an AHL Hockey team that plays in the same building.
Over the weekend the Raptors cut Chris Wright and Carlos Morais were told thanks for coming out and waived from the roster. Julyan Stone is currently injured but it seems like he may have nailed down the fifteenth roster spot.
Kyle Lowry as mentioned will be playing with a splint on his ring finger on his non shooting hand for likely the next 6 weeks. Given what we have seen at the back-up point guard position if Lowry were to miss any time that would have been a major blow. Even though he is not, you still have to wonder how well he will be able to deal with the pain.
It all gets started for real on Wednesday against the Boston Celtics.
