Scottie Barnes on what Rookie of the Year means to him, and hearing the news from Vince Carter:
“It was a goal of mine all year to try to win it but I didn’t want to overthink it or do too much. I just played my role, did what I had to do, and winning helps with it as well.” pic.twitter.com/J40sKVV9VU5:27 PM

Eric Koreen @ekoreen
‘Topes win! 110-102 Siakam comes through with a playoff career-high 34 points, with Trent supplying 24. Thaddeus Young had a huge performance, especially in the first half, to help the Raptors deal with the loss of VanVleet and the Scottie Barnes not being quite himself. – 4:31 PM
Kyle Neubeck @KyleNeubeck
Scottie Barnes is in for Fred Van Vleet to open the second half – 3:18 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Fred VanVleet has not come out of the locker room for the second half, and it appears Scottie Barnes will be replacing him in Toronto’s starting lineup to begin the third quarter. Really big blow to the Raptors. – 3:18 PM

Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Scottie Barnes got tripped up on a Paul Reed screen and seemed to tweak his sprained left ankle. Raptors immediately call a timeout to get him out of the game and trainers are looking at it on the bench. – 2:33 PM
Rich Hoffman @rich_hofmann
Poor Scottie Barnes. Wasn’t nearly as nasty as the last one but he stepped on BBall Paul’s foot and looked like he tweaked it. – 2:33 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Scottie Barnes goes down on that tender left ankle again, and limps back to the bench. Barnes has five rebounds in six minutes so far in this game. He’s getting looked at by Toronto’s trainers during this timeout. – 2:33 PM
Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Oof, that’s tough. Scottie Barnes took a spill and he’s limping back to the bench. He’s playing through that ankle sprain, but that might be it. That looks rough. – 2:32 PM

I can’t stop thinking about that guy in my mentions on draft night insisting Masai and Bobby needed to be fired because Scottie Barnes was trash and picking him fourth was the biggest mistake ever – 2:01 PM
Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen
Scottie Barnes a deserving Rookie of the Year, edging Evan Mobley. Cade Cunningham third.
Jalen Green fourth, which would normally indicate first-team All-Rookie to come. But received just three third-place votes so not much of a clue yet. – 2:01 PM

Scottie Barnes is the first rookie to average 35 mins per game on a playoff team since Derrick Rose.
