Raptors D. Smith: Kleiza playing through Knee, achilles injuries

Q: Hi Doug. Just curious as to your take on Kleiza at the moment? He had a terrific World Championships and pre-season and then sustained the injury. Do you think he's still hurting? I felt he was going to be a big part of the offence and it just hasn't happened. His ball handling has also been suspect as well as his three point shooting.

A: Hes hurt and playing through it. His knees are sore and his Achilles still gives him a bit of a problem and those have contributed to his play. I would say hes been as big a disappointment as theres been on the team but I think its got to do with physical issues more than were being told publicly.
