07:28 AM ET 01.24 | At one point, now nearly a month ago. Tyler Hansbrough was merely day-to-day. [But] his long-awaited return to the court could be around the corner. The Raptors forward has been sidelined for 11 games, longer than originally expected, after aggravating a lingering left ankle injury against his former team in the Jan. 1 win over Indiana. Although there's still no clear timetable -- he'll be a game-time decision in Philadelphia Friday, the case for most of this month -- Hansbrough has ramped up his work and believes he's made significant progress. "Today was the most I've done on it," Hansbrough told TSN.ca prior to Wednesday's contest. "It's definitely getting better, just a few steps but it's improving. I feel like I'm right around the corner from playing."

I'm relieved with this news! I didn't realize you were injured.

Great news for the Raptors..... His production coming off the bench has been huge for the Raptors.
