Synopsis: In my latest for The Athletic Toronto, I opened up the mailbag to answer questions about how this season changed the value of certain Raptors, decisions the team will have to make moving forward, and more.
There’s no way around how strange these next few weeks and months are going to feel.
With Saturday’s news that the Toronto Raptors received the all-clear in their COVID-19 tests, we can at least begin to move forward in terms of content. The Athletic remains committed to making your subscription worthwhile and we, as a Raptors team, are hopeful our work will be able to provide some element of solace, distraction or entertainment in the weeks to come.
There are, naturally, a lot of questions that flow from the difficult situation. Some are more immediate, others longer term and harder to answer, others still just kind of silly, which we probably need a bit of right now. Over the next however long – at least eight weeks, by the sounds of it – we’ll be doing semi-regular mailbags to keep the discussion flowing and try to provide modicums of certainty where there is so little.
Let’s get it.
