Here's a little bit of (good) news for Nate
This just in, and we'll get more as the night unfolds here, but Nathan Jawai has been cleared to resume regular physical activity and should begin practicing with the Raptors tomorrow.
Jawai's been out since the first day of training camp after a heart abnormality was discovered during pre-camp medical tests. He was told to rest and not do any basketball-related work for an extended period of time so cardiologists he's seen across North Ameria could determine the significance of the "abnormality."
His final visit to a doctor came Tuesday when he was cleared.
Jawai's a 6-10, 280-pound native of Australia who was the 41st pick in last June's NBA draft. The Indiana Pacers actually made the pick but in a pre-arranged deal involving Jermaine O'Neal, T.J. Ford and Rasho Nesterovic, they were making it for the Raptors.
Jawai also became the first indigenous player from Australia ever drafted in the NBA.
