In the end, it was mistake for the Raptors to sign Kleiza.

I wonder if Portland picking the injury riddled Oden over Durant was a mistake. Its not the GM fault? Oh yeah, that GM got fired!!
At the time of signing, as far as we know, BC had no indication of any health issues with Kleiza. I've said it back then and I will say it again - a healthy Kleiza, as a rugged post-up player and a great distance shooter, was a very good signing for this club. He got injured, tried to play through it and finally had to opt for the surgery.

If you think GMs get canned for bad luck - be my guest.

i'm sorry, but hes neither
he hasn't shown he was a decent post-up player prior to this year (denver, euro) when he was healthy and he certainly didn't show it this year. u can't blame injuries for what happened this year cuz he hadn't shown that part of his game before
i also wouldn't consider him a great distance shooter.....'good' suits him just fine

OK, I will settle for good. But I insists that, having been healthy, he would have been our best low-post threat across all 5 positions.

well ya, but being the best low post threat on this team isn't saying a whole lot
and i dont' think having a low post threat from ur SF position is a plus considering other things i would target down the list before i get to that

And I was talking specifically about what BC was thinking when signing Kleiza - for a team short on post-up players and with a poor rebounder starting at centre, Kleiza does seem like a very good fit, much better than Hedo.

I don't really care for the repercussions on our team.

He wasn't doing too much anyways.

What I do care is that it's a terrible injury for him to sustain and a terrible time. He's a good dude from what I understand and you never like to see a guy sidelined for so long...

Either way, I'm pretty sure we'd be able to use the injury exception on him considering he'll be out for almost a year.

Hopefully he has a quick recovery.

DISABLED PLAYER EXCEPTION -- This exception allows a team which is over the cap to acquire a replacement for a disabled player who will be out for the remainder of that season (if the player is disabled between July 1 and November 30) or the following season (if the player is disabled after November 30). This exception can also be granted in the event of a player's death. This exception can only be used to acquire one player. The maximum salary for the replacement player is 50% of the injured player's salary, or the average salary, whichever is less (see question number 25 for the definition of "average salary"). Approval from the league (based on a determination by an NBA-designated physician) is required for this exception to be used. This exception can be used to sign a free agent, or to create room to accept a salary in trade. When used for trade, the team may acquire a player whose salary (including any trade bonus) is up to 100% of this exception plus $100,000 (not 125%). Also see question number 20 for more information on the availability and use of this exception.

If a player is disabled between July 1 and November 30, the team must acquire the replacement player within 45 days. If the player is disabled between December 1 and June 30, then the team has until October 1 to sign a replacement. If the disabled player comes back sooner than expected, then he may be activated immediately, and the replacement player is not affected. However, if the disabled player comes back before the exception is used, then the exception is lost.

Teams sometimes have had difficulty getting the NBA to approve an injury exception. For example, Danny Manning tore an ACL toward the end of the 1997-98 season, yet the NBA did not approve the Suns for this exception. More recently, the Magic did not receive this exception in 2003 for Grant Hill. However, this exception was granted in the 1999 offseason to San Antonio, so they could replace Sean Elliott, who was disabled due to kidney problems. This exception was also granted to Charlotte soon after Bobby Phills was killed.

Don't confuse this exception with the salary cap relief teams can apply for a year after losing a player to a career-ending injury or death (see question number 55). This exception allows a team to acquire a replacement player. The salary cap relief removes a contract from the books.

Just saying....

He wasn't making a major contribution anyways.

But this blows, another $5 million down the drain.

do you think he is really hurt?
or is this just a business decision to have him sit out the remainder of the year since the Raptors aren't so great, and it also gives weems more minutes

Noone has surgery as a result of a business decision.

that would be dumb 1st because he's not sitting out, he had surgery
and sitting out kleiza to play weems more is even worse, i don't want to see weems with more minutes, i want less!
i hope this means more minutes for wright if anything
