HoopsHype Landry Fields rumors


January 10, 2013 Updates

It all stemmed from a play with 15.6 seconds left and the Raptors with the ball, up 16. It certainly would appear to be a time when Toronto would hold the ball and run out the clock. Instead, guard Jose Calderon threw an alley-oop pass to Landry Fields, who threw down a dunk. Sixers coach Doug Collins stared down at the Raptors' bench, where, when the game ended, coach Dwane Casey waved at Collins. The Sixers coach didn't respond and a couple of minutes later, as the Sixers approached their locker room, words were exchanged. In the Raptors' locker room, both Calderon and Casey said they wanted to apologize, saying they didn't know how much time was left. Perhaps the fire that Collins' players showed after the late-game incident will carry over to the next game, which is Saturday at home against Houston. Right now, they need to look anywhere and everywhere for some answers. Philadelphia Inquirer

Starting small forward Landry Fields likely will be out the longest, but even his diagnosis brought some relief. Fields had ulnar nerve transposition surgery Wednesday in New York City to address compression/entrapment in his right elbow. Fields will be reassessed in two weeks, and could be out for a while. Still, the team was relieved that there was a medical explanation for the pricey free agent signing’s troubling play early on. Fields was averaging just 2.4 points and 3.2 rebounds and shooting 20.8% from the field, including 0-for-6 from three in his five starts. Toronto Sun

In Landry Fields, the Raptors may have found someone who could be that Garbajosa-like player. The ‘glue guy’ term is one Fields, even in his rookie year was hearing. And he has his own definition of that kind of player. “I hear the term a lot,” Fields said Thursday. “A glue guy is kind of unheralded at times. It’s a guy every team needs who doesn’t necessarily show up in the statistics box with superstar stats but even when they don’t they are still effective on the court, whether that’s making right cuts so somebody else is open or running the floor, so he draws another person’s man and that person is open. It’s the guy who does the little things to help teams win. Every team has to have a guy like that.” Toronto Sun
