"I don't think we've decided how long that's gonna be yet".

With just a few bits of news coming to the forefront, I've changed my tune pretty drastically.

In the locker room, Bron told reporters it felt like the team got "hit in the mouth" and they didn't have a response. "I don't either. It's a long season, so we're thinking about the long road", Leonard said Friday night after the Raptors ran their record to 8-1 with a 107-98 win in Phoenix.

Which of the two games Leonard sits out remains to be determined as the team and superstar will discuss at Saturday's practice. So that means it should still give the Jazz a pretty high chance of winning, right?

He was caught after the driver of a crew bus smelled alcohol and called the police, according to Japanese broadcaster NHK. The co-pilot acknowledged he drank about two bottles of wine and a pitcher of beer the previous night, NHK said.

First off, even without Kawhi, the Toronto Raptors looked incredible in Sunday's contest against the Los Angeles Lakers. Though they played better basketball as the game went on, they were never able to overcome that slow start.

Lakers have had mixed fortunes this season, although they have won their last two games on the trot against the Dallas Mavericks and the Portland Trail Blazers. "The best thing is he's doing it with some real good composure".

Leonard said the injury wasn't serious, although the team listed him as questionable to face the Lakers. Is Leonard happy in Toronto? Or maybe the Raptors will be without Kawhi and exhausted legs will catch up to them and my original optimism will hold true. Nurse doesn't know whether Leonard will play Monday at Utah.

The Jazz and Raptors tip-off at 7:00 PM MT within the friendly confines of Vivint Smart Home Arena.
