the cast can be off if the fracture's healed.
they'll still restrict contact for another 2-4 weeks to ensure strength at the fracture site.

just my 3 cents

Scratch that! Tie both his hand behind his back and throw him into the starting line up! I'm sure a no handed valanciunas is 10 times better then Aaron gray. Right? Yup!

Raptors posted a picture of Jonas working out with his left hand today.

Our D has been better without him no? The kid is miles away from making any impact. Let him rest.

He was getting eaten alive by most centers he faced, but he is a rookie. But yeah, Bargs and Val were just a terrible duo on the floor together.

I like that he is working with his left hand hopefully this will make him more lethal offensively being able to finish with both hands around the rim hook shots and with contact. Jonas still needs too add some weight if he really wants to compete with the more elite centres in the league but having him watch and learn and learn more about our offence

He looked gassed. Needed a break. A lefty hook would be awesome at some point but he isn't out for that long.

How do you expect him to make progress then ?

Miles away from impact, did you watch him play?

He's a rookie big, so ya, he'll foul out and get tricked... dude looked good more often than not, he could contribute, and it would certainly be more productive than Aaron Grey.

Yesterday some clips showed he is practising his left hand. I guess both him and the team will involve in offensive and defensive sets. Maybe it is a good time for him to improve his left hand.

I just hope when he comes back, we go through him more... He is "firstly"an offensive player before anything!...let him be who he is and enough of making him a "screen setter" gosh!

No way no how. Casey ball during this "successful" streak includes starting Jose and playing small-ball. Casey won't be changing those things as long as he's trying to win.
