Amir Absent from Raptors Fan Jam?
 
Hey guys,

One of my friends is at the Raptors Fan Jam right now, and she has been telling me over FB that Amir is not there today. Further, she said that when asked about it, some guys with team security passes said that he's been traded.

This is all second hand obviously, as I am on the other side of the country, but I know that some of you guys must be there. Can anyone offer any conformation or denial of any kind? I'm sorta freaking out a bit.

Thanks.

If that was true, highly doubt that security guards would know that before Wojnarowski or other insiders.

Haaahhh! I doubt that...

Apparently he's playing through pain.

I think everyone could tell hes been hurt. Allstar break should help.

Agreed. Amir has been more of a detriment to the team on both sides of the ball. We have PP and Psycho T for depth reasons, so play them and sit Amir until he is fully healed. It serves no purpose to play Amir because he will constantly be playing in pain and when the playoffs start he will be useless.

Before turning his ankle a couple weeks ago.....no. There was speculation because of his play but we didn't know. Either way, should rest and at the very least come off the bench the next couple games.

He should just take this week off. Rest up, this with the all start break should help. Give him the week and a bit to get a bit healthy

Which would be almost two weeks off since we haven't played since friday. I agree

Amir been bad for more than past two months, you can just assume "he's gotta be hurt" everytime he doesn't show up in the games.

Amir has earned the benefit of doubt. He's been hurt, you can just tell and he's admitted it now.

I'll say it agin, if that's the case and he's stunk for a while now......sit the fuck down. Sorry, i love that he's trying to play through it but he's not helping. And i don't think i've seen a player with so many ankle issues. Two seasons ago he was plagued by them and even last season he rolled his ankle and was hurt at one point.

Stonezz 02-10-2014 01:35 PM

Yea if he could sit now until after the AS break that would be awesome
