The Toronto Raptors will be without injured point guard Kyle Lowry and forward Landry Fields for Saturday night's home game against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Lowry left Tuesday's loss to Oklahoma City with a sprained right ankle and also missed Wednesday's game in Dallas. Fields has a tender right wrist and saw a specialist this week. He's to have a second opinion...
Landry Fields has a lot of reasons to smile. Well actually, one reason to smile - his paycheck. The Toronto Raptors picked up Fields this off season with a 3-year $20 million dollar contract.

Kyle Lowry will not be in the lineup for the Raptors on Saturday against the 76ers.
You don’t see many buzzer beating alley oops.
This one didn’t win the game for the Raptors, and it didn’t even come at the end of the game, but with three seconds left in the third quarter, Jose Calderon drove to the basket and chucked the ball back to Amir Johnson just in time for an impressive alley-oop. Johnson slammed the ball home just in time to beat the clock from hitting...

The Toronto Raptors’ military alternates are a nice tribute, and we’d never attempt to downplay their significance. However, from a sartorial standpoint they are a little, um, hideous. Thankfully, DeMar DeRozan’s act of aerial artistry made it all worth watching tonight.

Oh Amir, you are a character!

Although it may be an issue tucked away deep in the closets of many Raptors fans, ask any fan about Vince Carter and prepare to face the music. Pure venom comes spewing their mouths and only the bad memories remain. Vince Carter leaving for the Nets is on the same playing field as LeBron’s Decision in most parts of Ontario.

After leaning on their defense at the start of this season, the Philadelphia 76ers may have gotten just the breakthrough scoring performances they've needed last time out.
