Despite the announcement from Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports earlier this week, it turns out the Raptors' DeMar DeRozan will not return tomorrow night against the Charlotte Hornets.
DeMar DeRozan won't play tomorrow after all. He and staff want him to get a few more practices user belt. Targeting next week.— Eric Koreen (@ekoreen) January 7, 2015
But is he still injured? How concerned should we be?
DeRozan's groin injury is fully healed & he's been cleared but both he & the docs feel he needs to get conditioning back before he returns— Josh Lewenberg (@JLew1050) January 7, 2015
With the team deflating through a recent three game losing streak, the positive news comes as welcome relief.
What do you guys think?
