You know it's sad when the franchise is pinning its hopes on a player who isn't even in college yet....

Any idea why Kleiza didn't played against portland ? He had a good game against clips and pietrus went 3-13. Haven't watched the game just wondering.

NBA.com's box score says that it was a coaches decision, but I know I heard Devlin say before the game that he had some kind of injury that was going to keep him from playing, but I can't remember exactly what the injury was.

Toronto was already without forward Linas Kleiza because of a sore right knee.

per ESPN.

Thanks. He's been either crap or injured most of the time for Raptors, yet when he plays for NT he's always decent, he played better for the nuggets aswell even tho he was backing up melo most of the time.

I don't even know what he is doing anymore.

throwing your OWN COACH under the bus is just disgusting behaviour from a front office GM. The end is near, we can only hope

Second time I've heard something about Colangelo saying something about Casey but haven't been able to find a link. Can anyone help?

Interview:

Referenced here:

Quote:
Colangelo, meanwhile, is dancing as fast as he can, and spent the weekend on an all-out media blitz. He said the record “is not a talent issue,” which shifted the blame directly onto coach Dwane Casey. Colangelo blamed “a lack of focus” and “attention to detail.” He called the situation “unacceptable.” When I asked him directly on TSN 1050 Monday whether Casey’s job was in jeopardy, Colangelo said, “No. A change at the top in terms of coaching has not been contemplated at all to date. We think he’s earned the right to see this thing through.”

There are those who insist Casey’s status has been discussed, including sources within the organization, but Colangelo flatly and unequivocally denies it. Regardless, something needs to change. It seems unlikely that Casey lost his ability to coach one season after somehow dragging this team to eighth in the NBA in field-goal percentage allowed — which, in a historical context for this franchise, is a little like teaching a horse to change a tire — so the roster is the next step.

I don't think Casey is the greatest coach in the world but at the same time clearly they need changes to the roster. I wonder if BC is a big enough idiot to let things sit as is and let the season play out when his ass should really be on the line.
