  • Toronto Raptors star Kawhi Leonard out against Wizards

    The Wizards will catch a break on Saturday night when they host the Toronto Raptors in the second game of their regular season, as Raptors superstar Kawhi Leonard is being held out due to rest. Leonard, who has been dominant so far for the 2-0 Raptors, is being limited in back-to-backs after he missed 73 games last season due to a quadriceps injury. The Raptors played the night before against the Celtics.

  • Joe Ingles declares himself best shooter in NBA; Steph Curry responds

    In the Utah Jazz's Oct. 5 preseason win over the Toronto Raptors, Joe Ingles went 5-for-11 from 3-point territory. A couple days later, he doubled down when a reporter reminded him that he "joked" about being the NBA's best marksman. "No, I am," Ingles responded. "The numbers I've shot, the percentages, they obviously are what they are and people are going to dissect everything, but I honestly feel like they're all going to go in when I shoot the ball.

  • Kawhi Leonard scores 31 points, Raptors beat Celtics 113-101

    Kawhi Leonard isn't quite back up to speed after missing most of last season. Leonard had 31 points and 10 rebounds, Serge Ibaka added 21 points and the Raptors beat the Boston Celtics 113-101 on Friday night in an early matchup of Eastern Conference contenders. Leonard, who was limited to nine games last season with San Antonio mostly because of a quadriceps injury, posted his second straight double-double and played 36 minutes, one fewer than he had Wednesday night a season-opening win over Cleveland.

  • Kawhi Leonard, retooled Raptors hope to challenge for NBA title

    A two-time NBA defensive player of the year, Leonard is eager to show he’s healthy again after being limited to nine games last year because of a quadriceps injury. The Raptors want Leonard at his best right now, so they can push for the Eastern Conference crown, but also hope their new star likes playing in Toronto enough to stick around when he becomes eligible for free agency next summer. Leonard was the biggest splash in a busy offseason for the Raptors, who traded a package including franchise icon DeMar DeRozan to acquire the 2014 NBA Finals MVP from San Antonio.

  • Drake showed up at Conor McGregor's weigh-in wrapped in an Irish flag, naturally

    Conor McGregor is set to face off against Khabib Nurmagomedov on Saturday after the two made weight Friday, and McGregor had a guest in tow at weigh-ins that should be both surprising and very unsurprising for sports fans: Drake. One of sports’ most visible fans was hanging out on McGregor’s side as the notorious personality hyped up a fight scheduled for Saturday night at UFC 229 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Oh, and one more detail: the Canadian-born Drake was draped in an Irish flag, because of course he was.

  • Tristan Thompson informs Celtics, 76ers and Raptors that Cavs are still team to beat in East

    Tristan Thompson wants you to know that he and the Cavaliers are super serious, you guys. Before Thursday afternoon, I would have said that even the most optimistic projections for what the Cleveland Cavaliers might be capable of accomplishing this year probably have them topping out at a bit over .500, vying for something between the Nos. 6 and 8 seed in the Eastern Conference playoff bracket, and hoping that rejuvenated top option Kevin Love would be able to help them make some noise in the opening round of the postseason.

  • Report: Kyle Lowry dodging calls, texts from Raptors president Masai Ujiri, coach Nick Nurse

    DeMar DeRozan hasn’t hidden his disdain for Raptors president Masai Ujiri trading him. How does Kyle Lowry, a close friend of DeRozan still left in Toronto, feel? Lowry dodged DeRozan questions while at USA Basketball’s minicamp in July.
