It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
Rolled ankles are a pretty common occurrence in basketball. Toronto Raptors forward Amir Johnson suffered one last night. What isn’t that common is getting a still shot of the roll. The eight-year veteran tweeted a picture of the painful-looking incident that occurred in Wednesday night’s game against the Grizzlies. Despite the 100 degree angle (I used my handy dandy protractor) of his leg/foot, Johnson (@IamAmirJohnson) said, “Sick ankle roll but I’m ok Thanx for your prayers.” Yeah, I’d say it’s pretty sick…sick as in my ankle hurts just looking at it.

THAT DOESN'T LOOK SAFE

Dwane Casey talked with the media about how the need for Toronto to get their defensive focus back, why the addition of Mickael Pietrus will cut into the minutes Terrence Ross has been getting and the growth of Jonas Valanciunas so far this season.
DeMar DeRozan scored 23 points, Amir Johnson added 16, and the Toronto Raptors beat the Phoenix Suns 101-97 to snap a six-game losing streak on Friday night.
Kyle Lowry scored 15 points, and Jose Calderon had 13 points and nine assists for the Raptors, who ended Phoenix's seven-game winning streak in Toronto. The Suns hadn't lost there since Jan. 4, 2004.

The Raptors are searching for depth at small forward with Landry Fields and Alan Anderson out.
