Exclamation Smith: Banks Done For The Season

Blogger's note: Actually, just heard he's got an injury -- a foot problem, I believe -- and they're going to shut him down for the year.

Don't worry, as long as Jake Voskuhl & Patrick O'Bryant are healthy Raps have a chance...

See, thats one thing I dont get. The Raps are pretty much out of playoff contention and yet Roko and Obryant arent getting many minutes. Isnt now the time to see what you have and what they can do?

I think Roko has already shown hes going to be a future Raptor for a while, but I'd like to see Obryant get some meaningful minutes for a couple of games to see if he can do anything. I mean he cant be any worse than Jake, its not possible.

I asked the same thing yesterday in the game thread.


Apparently they're still in win mode until they've officially been eliminated. Even though at times Roko has helped them win.

I agree 100% about Roko, he should play.

However, it's hard to make the same case for O'Bryant. I have trouble campaigning for minutes for a guy who has shown so little interest in playing at all. I mean, I know we're way out of it and tend to lose in extremely disheartening ways, but the guy should at least be trying to play for selfish reasons: to get more minutes, to get a real contract with an NBA team, etc. The fact that he's shown so little drive to even push for selfish goals is not a good sign.

i totally forgot about this guy. he's one of the players who could save us cap space in the offseason. sorry, i just don't see his role on this team. if i remember correctly, he can't even make shots that hit the rim..

I hate people that still look at it like this. You just put your best players on the floor. I understand if you are doing it to move a guy but if you're stuck with someone, as is the case with banks, you put your best guys out.
