Clippers-Raptors Preview By JEFF MEZYDLO Posted Jan 31 2013 11:53AM Despite a hefty contract, the Toronto Raptors hope the addition of Rudy Gay will help them turn around their season and make a serious push for the playoffs. The veteran small forward could debut with his new team Friday night when the Raptors look to avoid a fourth straight loss while trying to continue their recent home success against the Los Angeles Clippers. Toronto (16-30) acquired Gay and little-used center Hamed Haddadi on Wednesday for veteran guard Jose Calderon, forward Ed Davis and a 2013 second-round draft pick. The Grizzlies then sent Calderon to Detroit....

This one is a trap game, clippers come from winning two in a row, raptors no Rudy Gay, raptors are young and athletic, all they have to do is match the energy, before the raptors realize that they actually have a chance to win, just close them out early

Don't even ask. Its better that you have a mindset that he isnt coming back anytime soon that way if he does come back you will be pleaantly surprised .

They also may not have Kleiza, Bargnani and Valancunias.

My guess is he won't come back until we play Miami and NY.

From an earlier practise report it sounded like Chauncey was more ready than CP3.

Even if Rudy plays, they gotta be a little out of sorts. Still gotta stay focused. Our bench knows it's gotta play better than the last game, so hopefully they'll have a big game. I'm so proud BG has stepped up his game even more with Paul out. Yet I'm worried about his ankle. I hope he's not aggravating it further.

Barnes suspended for tonight's game. If Rudy plays, we'll need Caron and Green to defend him and Derozan.

Rudy ain't playing, they need to finalize the deal or something, kinda like when we got Nick Young, and he couldn't play for a game or 2.

Bad news guys...without matt barnes it will be tough guarding him...

Per Rotoworld:

Rudy Gay will play in Friday's game against the Clippers.

All players involved in Wednesday's trade have passed their physicals and the NBA has finalized the deal. That means Ed Davis, Tayshaun Prince and Austin Daye will all be available for the Grizzlies Friday as well. The only question mark for Friday is Jose Calderon, who is dealing with work visa issues. Gay hasn't even gotten a practice in with his new team yet, but we'd still be hard-pressed to not give him a start in fantasy. He'll step right in as the Raptors' best scorer.

I'm more pissed that Hammed Haddadi is going to play because he can eat up all our rebounds if DJ doesn't box out.

Gay on the floor changes nothing, he's still an overrated player and this way we'll know who the Raps will be passing the ball to and doesn't allow some random to burn us. We still got this. Hell with all our depth even w/ Barnes suspended, this shouldn't be cause for concern.

I agree Gay is overrated but he's still better then most other players. i think we still should and will win the game. Hope we can slow Gay and Lowry down. Their timing should be off without practicing with each other.

i think bargnani will play as well. i dont care how overrated he and gay are, they can still put the ball in the hoop. clips need to pound the ball inside and punish them for lacking depth at the 4 and 5. we need ebled to play well and cut down on the turnovers.

^ maybe. but if bargnani plays, he will have his hands full with bg. probably even more. a potential x factor is alan anderson. no joke. the guy can score.

My epiphany,,,,when we really sucked we always seemed to beat the good teams but lost to everyone else,,,we are now the good team other teams rise up to beat. Other teams, the really bad ones, come in to annihilate us and many of them have. Look at these losers,,it is like game 7 of the championships to them,,,,eh.
