A late change in the health of the Raptors
There’s been a change in the injured Raptors for Sunday’s game in Phoenix.
Hedo Turkoglu must have spent some time at the local chapter of Lourdes because he’s a go for the game against the Suns, but Antoine Wright’s sore ankle will keep him out of the game.
At shootaround Sunday morning, coach Jay Triano had said “I’m not optimistic right now” about Turkoglu’s availability because of his sore hip.
But after the shootaround, some afternoon work with the team’s training staff and the pre-game warmup, the starting small forward was deemed fit to go.
Wright, however, went through shooting drills about half an hour ago but couldn’t get his left ankle loose enough to let him play.
