With three straight losses this week (including back-to-back losses against the Wizards and Cavs), the Raptors have probably blown any chance of a legitimate run at the eighth seed, but nonetheless, if they are to keep those faint playoff hopes alive, tonight’s game in Milwaukee is an absolute must win.

Everything Bargnani-related you hear over the next couple of weeks should probably be taken with a large grain of salt given that we’re closing in on the NBA’s trade deadline (February 21) and that Andrea will be one of the more talked about players in the media, but there’s this from Hoops World’s Steve Kyler on Monday afternoon:
“Raptors sources peg Milwaukee’s Ilyasova as a target; however, it’s unclear how that would work with Rudy Gay now in tow.”
Kyler writes about the Raptors’ interest in Ilyasova in a short writeup about how Toronto continues to look for ways to unload Andrea Bargnani’s contract, and also writes that Ilyasova could be a dark horse trade target for the Raptors and Nets should the two teams “swing and miss on other options.”
