TORONTO: GUARDS: KYLE LOWRY was banged up last season, but he enters this year healthy and has the potential to be one of the league's best two-way point guards . . . DEMAR DEROZAN does a nice job attacking, but he's a flawed player unless he develops a jump shot . . . The Raptors want TERRENCE ROSS to attack the basket more often. But whether he develops a three-point shot could determine where he fits into this rotation . . . After a disastrous season in Indiana, D.J. AUGUSTIN will have to earn his rotation spot. Toronto could use his shooting, though . . . DWIGHT BUYCKS comes back from Europe to back up Lowry . . . Versatile JULYAN STONE is an interesting bit piece, as he reunites with GM Masai Ujiri, who brought him to Denver. FORWARDS: Despite all that talent, RUDY GAY's poor shot selection and disinterested defense will have him on the trading block . . . AMIR JOHNSON will get another chance at full-time minutes. Despite some inconsistency, he still has the upside to be a good rebounder and shot-blocker . . . TYLER HANSBROUGH brings toughness and a decent mid-range jumper. He's a second-unit talent, but could challenge Johnson for minutes . . . LANDRY FIELDS is a well-compensated reserve . . . STEVE NOVAK gives them a legitimate shooter among the second unit . . . Toronto will try to shake some of that upside out of AUSTIN DAYE . . . QUINCY ACY will move to the three, likely making this a redshirt year. CENTERS: JONAS VALANCIUNAS is set to become Toronto's new centerpiece. Talented enough for them to run the offense through him, he's rapidly improving on both ends of the court . . . AARON GRAY will stick around as a decent back-up, a 7-footer who can get in the way defensively.
DENVER: GUARDS: TY LAWSON is turning into something of a one-man army as the roster around him crumbles. As good as he is as a quick playmaker who can knock down an open three, his supporting cast is lacking . . . EVAN FOURNIER is better than RANDY FOYE now, and he's certainly a bigger part of Denver's future. Fournier proved surprisingly ready for the NBA last season. While Foye brings more scoring power to a team that suddenly lacks offense, he's both inefficient and one-dimensional . . . NATE ROBINSON will provide instant offense and lead the second unit . . . ANDRE MILLER will lose a few minutes this year, but the 37-year-old still has good basketball left. FORWARDS: Coming off a late-season ACL tear, DANILO GALLINARI will be lucky to make it back by December . . . KENNETH FARIED will likely never develop into anything more than an energy guy and high-volume rebounder, but he's good at what he does . . . WILSON CHANDLER can shoot and defend multiple positions. With Gallinari a question mark, he could be in for a much bigger role this year . . . DARRELL ARTHUR is an interesting second-unit player. He's an athlete who was starting to show some skill in Memphis before getting hurt . . . Gunning wingman JORDAN HAMILTON may get a longer look in the second half of the season . . . QUINCY MILLER is likely ticketed for more D-League action . . . ANTHONY RANDOLPH is a lost cause. CENTERS: The time has arrived for JAVALE MCGEE. The front office wants him on the floor full-time. For all the knucklehead plays, he's still an incredible athlete in a massive 7-foot frame . . . Talk of J.J. HICKSON potentially starting is absurd. A brutal defender unable to play within the flow of an offense, he's a second-unit talent . . . TIMOFEY MOZGOV is Plan B behind McGee. The 7-footer can defend and set screens.

*Raptors-Nuggets Preview* =========================


Toronto (24-21) at Denver (22-22), 9:00 p.m. EDT

The Denver Nuggets couldn't keep up without their leading scorer last time out.

The Toronto Raptors, meanwhile, haven't missed a beat without theirs.

Ty Lawson and DeMar DeRozan are questionable to play Friday night when the Nuggets go for a 10th consecutive home win over the Raptors.

Denver (22-22) had posted back-to-back wins before falling 101-98 to Charlotte on Wednesday. The Nuggets were held to under 101 points for the first time in 14 games and shot just 39.0 percent with Lawson sidelined due to a left shoulder injury.

Leading the team with 17.9 points, 8.9 assists and 1.5 steals per game, Lawson is day to day.

"The one position that we cannot afford to have an injury or to have that player missing is Ty Lawson," coach Brian Shaw said. "His speed, along with being a pure point guard that can run the perimeter and direct everybody where to go and keep the defense on their toes, so we lose a lot of speed, we lose that playmaking ability. We tried to mix and match and make up for it in other ways but it definitely shows his value when he's not in there."

The Nuggets also lost Lawson's backup - Nate Robinson - to a sprained knee in the first quarter, leaving Randy Foye to play the point. He finished with a season-high 33 points and matched a season best with seven assists.

"It was hard playing without Ty Lawson and Nate Robinson because they push the ball so well and they do so many different things on the court," Foye said. "I just tried to mimic what those guys do on the court, just being really aggressive by attacking the defense.

"We will figure it out there is no quitting on this team."

The Raptors (24-21) enter the weekend having won four of five, including back-to-back victories without DeRozan. The fifth-year guard, averaging a career-best 21.8 points, is dealing with a foot injury but will travel with the team on its five-game road trip.

"We can't really have him out too long," said Greivis Vasquez, who started in place of DeRozan during Wednesday's 98-83 win over Orlando. "We need him."

Kyle Lowry has carried the load during DeRozan's absence, scoring 64 points while shooting 55.3 percent over the last two games. He added 11 assists and shot 6 of 11 from 3-point range against the Magic.

"His aggressive play means a lot," coach Dwane Casey said. "His veteran leadership out there on the court, you can't say enough."

Lowry, averaging career highs of 16.8 points and 7.6 assists, is hoping to make the Eastern Conference All-Star team.

"I keep my fingers crossed that the coaches voted him in because he deserves it," Casey said. "Right now he's one of the best point guards in the league."

Lowry was held in check during a 112-98 loss to Denver on Dec. 1, posting 17 points, but also shooting 5 of 15 while committing five turnovers. The Raptors have dropped 16 of 19 in this series since 2004-05, including nine straight road meetings by an average of 17.8 points while giving up 118.6 per game in that span.

Jonas Valanciunas, who had 18 points and 11 boards against the Nuggets last month, has shot 58.8 percent and averaged 17.0 and 13.3 while putting together a season-best three consecutive double-doubles. Toronto has won 12 of its last 14 when Valanciunas scores at least 12.
