January 12, 2019 12:59 AM New Toronto Raptor Patrick McCaw keeping things in perspective

Patrick McCaw, the free-agent guard who officially signed with the Toronto Raptors on Thursday night, knows that better than most. The 23-year-old former Golden State Warrior suffered a particularly scary bone bruise when he was undercut by Vince Carter in a game against the Sacramento Kings last April. McCaw landed hard on his back and was stretchered 191

January 10, 2019 2:14 AM Raptors adding to depth at guard with former Warrior Patrick McCaw

He would appear to be a solid fit for the Raptors, who can assume his minimum salary without any significant tax implications and who have a need for a promising backcourt player. Toronto waived guard Lorenzo Brown earlier this week and filling that hole with a proven NBA player makes sense, providing depth behind Kyle Lowry, Fred VanVleet, Norm Powell 125

January 9, 2019 2:09 AM Miami Heat veteran Udonis Haslem is leaving the NBA quietly

MIAMI—It was a quiet moment before another Dwyane Wade moment, which is the way Udonis Haslem said he prefers it. Moments later, his friend would win over another crowd in his final appearance in Atlanta. But as Haslem winds down a 16th NBA season of his own, it is being done in the shadows. “I mean, stuff like that doesn’t really matter to me,” the chiseled 112

January 8, 2019 11:10 PM Hey Vince Carter, nice to see you again. Welcome home

The last time Vince Carter was a Toronto Raptor YouTube hadn’t been invented yet, among other things, which is a little like Dorothy Parker existing before Twitter. On Tuesday, Vince returned to Toronto again, on a seventh different team since he left his greatest and only enduring NBA home. He is 41 years old, all of a sudden. Is this the last time he comes 135

January 8, 2019 10:36 PM Sarah Thomas first female ref in NFL playoff history

Back in 2017, Thomas was an alternate for the Atlanta Falcons-Los Angeles Rams’ wild-card game but never took the field. She’s spent the last two seasons as a down judge, after starting out as a line judge. Thomas is in her fourth season as an NFL official. And in another move for equality, Terri Valentini, the NFL’s first female instant replay official 117

January 1, 2019 7:53 PM Raptors’ Lowry out indefinitely after back injections

Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry received injections to relieve pain and inflammation in his lower back and there is no timeline for his return. Lowry, who had missed seven of the last eight games before Tuesday night’s home date with the Utah Jazz, travelled to New York for the injections on Friday, the team announced. The Raptors added that the 32-year-old 117

December 22, 2018 11:45 PM LeBron to L.A. sent aftershocks across NBA

“For kids in general, all they want to know is that someone cares. And when they walk through that door I hope they know that someone cares,” he said at the opening. On the court, the year belonged primarily to the Warriors, who beat James and his Cavaliers in the championship series in June — the second title in a row and third in four years for the league’s 111

December 20, 2018 11:21 PM Kings owner brings NBA games to Mumbai

“Our inaugural NBA India Games will help further untap the enormous basketball potential in a country with a thriving sports culture and a growing, young and engaged population,” NBA commissioner Adam Silver added in a statement. The NBA prizes its growth in India. The population and growing middle class has generated grassroots and business opportunities 121

December 18, 2018 11:07 PM Duke star Zion Williamson is stunning college basketball fans

At six-foot-seven and 285 pounds, he is not only Paul Bunyan-esque for the college ranks but also, the website FiveThirtyEight noted, heavier than all but one active NBA player. Williamson, however, is hardly earthbound. His 45-inch vertical leap is the highest since Duke started measuring its players, providing the foundation for his explosive moves 122

December 17, 2018 10:42 PM Some fine-tuning should help Toronto Raptors get to the next level

Much of the confusion and disruption is the result of injuries and absences for a variety of reasons, but coach Nick Nurse is still doing a lot of experimenting with groupings at this point in the season. They’ve yet to come up with a consistent rotation that staggers the playing time of key components like Leonard and Lowry to ensure one of them is on the court 133
