Raptors Media at practice this morning

RT @RaptorsPR: #Raptors centre Jonas Valanciunas sustained a left calf strain. Injury not thought to be serious. ... tmi.me - WolstatSun: RT @RaptorsPR:

Calderon downplays comp with lowry
Quote:
Ryan Wolstat ‏@WolstatSun

Calderon says he did not ask for a trade. Happy to be back. Wants to win in Toronto. #Raptors
Quote:


Ryan Wolstat ‏@WolstatSun

Calderon said competition is good, will make team better. Also said he is impressed with Valanciunas. Seen him a lot in international ball

Quote:
Ryan Wolstat ‏@WolstatSun

Landry Fields first Raptor on court. Calderon, McGuire, Kleiza in weight room. Waiting on more willing to run media gauntlet.

Eric Smith ‏@Eric__Smith

Casey called Lowry an "alpha dog" today & said he's looking forward to healthy competition at the point & across his whole roster #Raptors
Quote:
Eric Smith ‏@Eric__Smith

Casey added that Calderon & Lowry pairing is a huge asset. Strength of the team. No decisions made yet. All will be evaluated #Raptors
Quote:
Eric Smith ‏@Eric__Smith

Casey also said that no matter who starts -- Lowry or Calderon -- the 2 could see time TOGETHER on the floor at times. #Raptors

Quote:
Eric Koreen‏@ekoreen

So, Casey was careful to say he wasn't a doctor, but JV's is a calf tendon strain, not like AB's calf muscle strain. Maybe not as serious.
Quote:
Michael Grange‏@michaelgrange

@ekoreen I'm officially over #TANK ... I'm all about 8th place. #Raptors #NBA

I so wish Jose was honest and not just polite because he was aware of limited minutes due to critics.

Lets go reptars! Kleiza starting SF!

Not earth-shattering, but, team sources report Lowry has been fantastic in early scrimmages and really taking charge (and winning said games

No idea if Calderon lasts season, but clear the Raptors' new "alpha dog" Lowry intends to spread his demeanor to teammates

All the interviews are on the Raptor's video page (LINK). I was kind of bored witless by the interviews. Jose said that he didn't ask for a trade but he was choosing his words pretty carefully.

Yeah, they interviewed Casey (see above), Jose and Ed. They said Raptors today will be on again wednesday @ 6pm and they'll have interviews with Fields and Lowry.


Davis when asked if he added weight- "I lost body fat" ..........ok

It means he is not any bigger or stronger, but if you poke him in the belly, he doesn't giggle and hand you a Pillsbury croissant.

that is one of the weirdest quotes i've heard in a while!? tendons connect bone and muscles right? never heard of a bone or muscle that the body doesn't use!?

People who can cross their eyes or move there ears dont need to...

But what bones muscles or tendons don't we use in our legs?

Casey did say he didn't know what exactly was wrong though, sometimes people just say something just to say something.

Jonas is going to be out for some time it sounds like. When a coach says its not serious, and its "not season ending, but there is no timetable for his return" that only means that hes going to be out anywhere from 4+ weeks from now at the least....

its like ya, its not serious, but its not going to end his season, then the tendon comment....has casey been dropping a few bourbons, or maybe he smoked a fat head before the interview
