D. Smith: Raps getting closer to full strength, sorta?

Looks good for Belinelli & Wright for tomorrow night. But now Amir has a sore Knee?? Obviously not too serious, but when does it end?

The walking wounded look a bit healthier
It looks like the Raptors may be at full strength – well, as close to full strength as they’ll get until Reggie Evans gets healthy – for Tuesday’s game against the Indiana Pacers.

Just got done practice – they had to throw a late-working Jarrett Jack out of the gym because the Pacers came in to work out – and the reports on Marco Belinelli and Antoine Wright were promising.

According to coach Jay Triano, both of the injured players too part in a full workout; Belinelli’s groin injury is much better and Wright was able to get through the session on his still-tender ankle.

No one will say for sure who’ll be healthy tomorrow night but I’d put it at 95 per cent for Belinelli and slightly less for Wright.

The only other issue seems to be with Amir Johnson’s left knee. He tweaked it a little bit late in Sunday’s loss to Orlando but played through it for that game. He also worked out fully Monday and the only way he doesn’t go is if things flare up overnight.

Injuries havent been too brutal for us so far, so im not really complaining. We havent lost any of our best players and belenili only missed 1 game. The only player who has had serious injury issues is reggie evans.

Jack is a real gym rat.

Hopefully the hard work he is putting in while he slumps will start to pay off on the floor.

I wouldn't say he's our MVP off the bench, other then yesterday. Although, after a slow start he's playing well as of late and i've been impressed.

Anyone who is injured on the Raps should just sit right now, I'm not saying tank but I am really tired of the excuses now...14 Games in & still no defence!!

I do think it is time to shake up the starting line up...

Either AB or Jose needs to come off the bench...We need better defence in our starting line up...

The call will probably be Jack starting, I know Jose will get upset but untill he plays like he did before I would think this is the only logical move to make at this point...

And JT should only play Jose & Jack together if the opponents have 2 guards 6'3" or less on the floore at the same time!!!!
