The Raptors have five ending contracts: Amir Johnson ($7 million), Landry Fields ($6.25 million), Chuck Hayes ($5.95 million), Lou Williams ($5.45 million) and Tyler Hansbrough ($3.32 million). It’s unlikely the Raptors look at anything involving Williams, but it seems that any combination of the others would get traction from Toronto’s side. The Raptors do own almost all of their future picks both in the first round and the second round, with their 2015 second going to Atlanta as the only traded pick at this point. The Raptors do have a couple of pick swap options, but for the most part they have draft picks to play with if so inclined.
Tyler Hansbrough is not expecting a long absence from the Raptors lineup. The man who has become the poster boy for physicality on the Toronto roster took an elbow directly on top of his left shoulder in the loss Friday in Phoenix. An MRI Saturday in Los Angeles showed the injury to be nothing more than a sprain. “I don’t think it’s going to be very long,” Hansbrough said Sunday before the game. “It’s already feeling better and it’s just a matter of me being able to play with it.”
On a play that became a video hit on the web, Hansbrough got rough during a scramble underneath getting entangled with World Peace. When World Peace followed Hansbrough out of the scramble, the former UNC star turned, realized it was the former Ron Artest and patted him on the stomach, saying, “My bad. My bad.’’ When asked if he saw the play, Anthony laughed. “I was standing right there,” Anthony said. “I had front-row, courtside seats. I saw Tyler’s apology. It was all good.”
“It was real tough to watch, bro. A lesson learned,” Andersen said. “I got to be able to control my composure no matter how rough the game gets. I just got to continue to play the way I play. Just play smart. Play the right way. “Of course I could have made a difference in the rebounding. But we’re still the Miami Heat. It’s a tough series. Indiana is tough. But you know what, we got to go back home and the good thing is we have our home-court advantage. We’ll go back to Miami and take care of business on Monday.”
