03:26 PM ET 10.09 | Toronto Raptors fans will finally get a chance to see 2011 first-round draft pick Jonas Valanciunas in action on Thursday, as he is expected to make his preseason debut, according to Eric Koreen of the National Post. Valanciunas had been out of action after injuring his calf in a workout in late September. He spent last season overseas in Lithuania, where he averaged 10.8 points and 7.6 rebounds per game.

Another Post paper! Nothing but crap coming from the Post! NY Post, Denver Post, and now the National Post!

Not the same Post of companies.
At one time the National Post was far right but they ran into money problems.

If he only averaged 11ppg and 8rpg in Lithuania, do the Raptors really think he is going to be a very good player in the NBA?
