According to the Toronto Star's Doug Smith, a contrite Hedo Turkoglu has accepted his diminished role with the Toronto Raptors. Unfortunately, this diminished role does not come with a diminished salary.

T.Jose Caldeford's Chris Black gives his thoughts on the new starting lineup.

According to Gerald Wallace, the Charlotte Bobcats - who the Raptors are chasing for the seventh seed in the East - aren't playing with a sense of urgency every night.

The Chicago Bulls lost to the Phoenix Suns last night, and now trail the Raptors by two games in the loss column (with Toronto holding the tie breaker). Before going down in defeat to the Suns, Bulls guard Derrick Rose said the Bulls will make the playoffs.

DeMar DeRozan is one of several players who have worn low-top shoes at some point this season.

The Globe and Mail's Michael Grange stands by his prediction that the Raptors will flameout and miss the playoffs, leading to the departures of Chris Bosh and Jay Triano.

The Raptors seek out unlikely rally to salvage Hedo, keep Bosh.

Isiah Thomas is the gift that keeps on giving. Don't you just wish he was still employed in an NBA front office so the Raptors would have a trade destination for Turkoglu?
