The things you see sitting around the concourse of the Air Canada Centre waiting to be summoned to Raptors practice.
Tuesday morning we witnessed DeMar DeRozan, in obvious pain from what looked like a bad right ankle, limp out the door, around the corner and into the elevator, leaning on team trainer Scott McCullough.
There is, of course, no word on the seriousness of whatever injury DeRozan suffered but he was putting weight on his legs as he hobbled downstairs.
McCullough was back in the gym about 30 minutes later.
The 20-year-old DeRozan is only one of two Raptors to have started each of the team’s first 45 games, Chris Bosh being the other. He’s averaging 8.2 points and 2.9 assists rebounds in 21 minutes this season.
