I’ve about had it with Raptors head coach Dwayne Casey not playing Jonas Valanciunas enough.  Tonight’s triple overtime game was the last straw, as the second-year center played just 29 minutes out of 62 – with no personal fouls and getting 10 rebounds – while Wizards C Marcin Gortat torched Toronto all night.

A young developing player has to be allowed to fail, but Casey isn’t letting that happen.  It’s hard to blame Jonas if he starts looking to the bench whenever he makes a mistake at this point.  If Raptors GM Masai Ujiri wants to get maximum return out of his center, he might have to consider a coaching change.
