08:05 AM ET 09.24 | The Raptors start training camp in Nova Scotia on Oct. 2, and already there are injury concerns. With training camp still a week away, prized Raptors prospect Jonas Valanciunas has injured his left foot. While the team said a full update likely wouldn't be coming until Monday, Valanciunas does not appear to be seriously injured, though he was photographed in a walking boot outside the ACC this weekend. ... [Walking boots] are known to speed up recovery from minor sprains and strains. He was not using crutches and was putting weight on the foot, both positive signs. The 6-foot-11 centre has been playing nearly non-stop since being selected by the Raptors fifth overall in the 2011 draft.

I miss the days when they were relevant to the league...actually made a little noise in the playoffs. Now they can't keep anyone around or sway any FA's to come play up here.

Lets relax, and keep our fingers crossed this is just what it sounds like; a minor injury.

Raptors are actually in a large market:Classifying NBA teams by market size. Big-Market: Knicks, Nets, Lakers, Clippers, Raptors, Bulls, 76ers, Mavericks, Warriors, & Celtics. Mid-Market: Hawks, Wizards, Rockets, Pistons, Suns, T'wolves, Heat, Nuggets, Cavs, & Magic. Small-Market: Kings, Blazers, Bobcats, Pacers, Jazz, Bucks, Spurs, Thunder, Grizzlies, & Hornets.

Yup, and yup again.
Just because it's not American, doesn't mean it is small market.
