Barbosa back against the T-Wolves
 
Quote:

The Raptors received a modicum of good news on Thursday. Leandro Barbosa, who has missed the Raptors’ past 11 games because of a sore hamstring, participated in practice and is expected to play against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night.
Raptors? Linas Kleiza could be out a year after surgery

Modicum? This is huge news, the team can't win without Barbosa and it was clear because of this losing streak.

jeffb 02-03-2011 04:06 PM

we should win now

Chiggmo 02-03-2011 04:15 PM

We'll still lose, he's rusty and this team sucks.

We just lost 13 in a row and we still have more wins then Minnesota. If we're gonna win a game, this is it.

amazing how much people miss Barbosa...

Crèpe 02-03-2011 04:26 PM

A guy who can put 15 pts, With 3pts shooting, ability to attack the basket, is always missed. Barbosa is always putting pressure on the opponent in Offense.

good news. i just hope he doesn't play point guard in any way shape or form.

Sick, Wicked and Nasty! 02-03-2011 04:31 PM

So much for operation tank :)

I think the streak ends friday.

Don Vito 02-03-2011 04:32 PM

Barbosa > Weems any day of the week. I hope Weems doesn't cut into Barbosa's playing time, that'll be a disaster.

DuCa00795 02-03-2011 05:47 PM

Hopefully he starts chucking so we will have a have a bad spread with Minny in case we tie them.

I like watching Barbosa play.

I'm actually curious as to whether or not Toronto still has fans that just like watching the game of basketball being played, regardless of results, expectations and whatnot.

Seems like all I ever hear is endless analysis, bitching, crying, complaining, comparing and cynicism.

i absolutely still love watching basketball being played, but we're not seeing good basketball from the raps, thus the analysis and bitching. gotta watch other nba games to stay positive about the game itself...

They play in a harder conference and still have way more talent then the raps. We have little chance.

I'd rather the wolves win for tank nation, makes more sense, no?

meh, we're gonna win again. May as well be against Minnesota, and it will be imo.

I like Barbosa a lot.

I hope he didn't rush himself back to action. Raptor fans know how nagging a hamstring injury is *ahem* Jose *ahem*.

anyone care to guess how many rebounds love will have against us?
his only competition for rebounds is his own teammates

FoldedLaundry 02-03-2011 10:46 PM

Weems might get less minutes now since they might run Jose/Bayless at point, Barbosa at the 2, and DD at the 3 at some point.
