Amir says his ankle/foot is fine. Team kept him out of second half as precaution Friday.
How every morning should start..
Good morning world.
Be kind.. For they do not know.
What a game!
What's everyone doing tonight?
What is your favourite thing about corporate synergy?
One thing about them tables, they always turn!
Elderly man at Gate in Wichita marvels that at 75 he can keep shoes and coat on going through security but "they still take my pen knife."

Wheels up back to Toronto.. ✈️
Best thing to happen to Raptors in Wichita was Terrence Ross finding his long-lost jump shot.
The Raptor bench loves Caboclo threes almost as much as a Tyler Hansbrough three.
Caboclo gets a little run.
Make that 22 and four from distance for Ross.
Ross now has a game-high 19 with three from long range.
The same rim that rejected Amir just did the same to Westbrook, although the Thunder miss was a little more, um, embarrassing.
No word on severity of Amir injury but no sense in running him out here regardless, so don't read into his 2nd half absence. Wait & see
Word from Raps MR is sore left foot for Amir. Done for the night.
Amir will not return tonight, left foot injury. Patterson starts the second half in his place
Amir is not back on the bench. Awaiting word from the Raptors on severity of injury.
Second unit was excellent in the Q, by the way. James Johnson, Lou & Patterson missed just 2 of 10 shots, scoring 19 pts. Turned half around
Anyway, big Q for the Raps. They outscored OKC by 20 (37-17), lead 60-46 at the break. JV (12), Ross (11) & DeRozan (10) all in doub figures
Amir checked out but was walking around by the bench, putting weight on the ankle. Doesnt look serious. We'll see if he's back in 2nd half
Raps have a 60-46 lead at the half. Outscored Thunder 37-17 in the second quarter.
Amir limps to the bench. Looks like he may have turned an ankle boxing out for a rebound off a DeRozan free throw
T Ross has hit three of his five treys tonight.
Thunder broadcast crew (who are actually quite good, for the record) making the Raptors sound like the '96 Bulls
Raptors can scrap those "We The North" ads and just use this strangely complimentary Thunder broadcast to market their team
Hamilton goes 1-on-3 and gets bailed out with a call.
Hamilton first of the playing-for-a-job Raptors to see the court tonight. Casey liked what he saw from him in Portland.
Ah geez Jake.
Impressive quarter for Valanciunas, aggressive/physical early in tricky matchup vs the tough-as-nails Steven Adams
Raps down 29-23 after a quarter. JV has nine. Morrow has seven for the Thunder.
Raptors trail 29-23 after 1Q. Thunder shooting 50% w/ an 18-6 advantage in the paint, 10-0 on the break. JV: 9 pts, 2 reb & a blk in 10mins
Lowry is arguing with both official Marc Davis and teammate Lou Williams over his foul on Telfair.
JV leaves with a game-high nine points. Hansbrough in for him.
Thing that's difficult to say with a straight face: "Former Raptor Sebastian Telfair"
Sebastian Telfair, - remember him - is in the game for the Thunder.
Interesting Morrow tidbit. Asked Lowry about best shooters in NBA last year- he had Morrow in top 3. Underrated player, tho top3 is bit much
Raps starters against a Durant-less Thunder are down 14-8 after 6:20.
This OKC team is real thin on the wing sans KD. Will need Lamb/PJ3 to grow up in a hurry. Morrow's a nice pickup/great shooter - should help
Amir just got rejected by the rim. Ouch.
Not a great start for DeRozan and his new and improved handle. Couple bobbles early. Too much dribbling
DeMar's handle a little shaky tonight.
Valanciunas first touch he goes right up and over Adams for his first points.
Ibaka making his pre-season debut, Westbrook plays after sitting out last night. OKC going all out to beat the mighty Raptors?
By the looks of the empty seats here at InTrust Bank Arena, the Durant injury has hurt ticket sales.
No Greivis Vasquez tonight. He apparently was hit in the head with a basketball at shoortaround and was still a little light-headed.
