While the injury update provided by the Raptors on Wednesday included minor updates on Landry Fields (Landry will have a followup with his surgeon on Thursday) and Alan Anderson (expected to return Friday), the real story was the bad news surrounding the statuses of Kyle Lowry and Andrea Bargnani.

In this week’s edition of RaptorBlog Radio, Scott Carefoot takes over hosting duties from an absent Drew Fairservice and joins Oliver Macklem and I to talk about Jose Calderon’s recent play, DeMar DeRozan’s improvements in other areas of the game besides scoring, what it would take to get Andrea Bargnani out of the starting lineup, Landry Fields’ injury status and much, much more.
We finish by looking at the upcoming week on Toronto’s schedule before a heartfelt goodbye from “The BlogFather” himself. If you end up listening to Vitamin C’s “Graduation” while Carefoot’s final words come out, I don’t blame you.

When the Raptors updated the injury status of three players yesterday, two of the updates seemed simple enough. Kyle Lowry had a bone bruise that would keep him out of action another week or two and Alan Anderson had a tear somewhere in his foot that would take 3-6 weeks to recover from.
Then there was Landry Fields and his “ulnar nerve transposition” surgery to fix compression/entrapment in his shooting elbow. I assume that many Raptors fans trying to figure out just what in the hell was really wrong with Fields probably took to Google immediately.

With all due respect to Landry Fields and Alan Anderson, Raptors fans have been waiting on a Kyle Lowry update for days, and it finally came on Wednesday with the news that Lowry will miss another one-to-two weeks with a bruised cuboid bone in his right foot.
Yesterday I wrote about just how poor the play (specifically the shooting) of Landry Fields has been to start the season. Today, we may have gotten an answer as to what’s been troubling Fields, as Dwane Casey revealed that Landry will see a specialist to look at a right hand (his shooting hand) issue.
We don’t know how serious this issue/injury might be or how much it’s played into Fields’ poor performance as a Raptor, but it’s probably better for everyone if a minor, treatable issue is the reason behind the struggles as opposed to just not being good enough (it’s probably a bit of both), so here’s hoping this gets resolved quickly and Fields can erase the last five games from our memory with a fresh start.
