D-League for Slokar, Tucker?

Raptors GM Bryan Colangelo said this week that rookie forwards Uros Slokar and P.J. Tucker could be sent to Colorado of the NBA Development League once Morris Peterson returns to the lineup.

Peterson returned last night after being put on the inactive list Nov.22 due to a partial tendon tear in his left elbow.

Slokar, who was placed on the active list last night, had not played in Toronto's first 17 games, while Tucker has played limited minutes in seven games.

Other than at practice, neither is getting much chance to develop their game and, for that reason, Colangelo said one or the other could be shipped to Colorado to get some playing time.

DINO-MITE

The Raptor, the official mascot of the Toronto Raptors, has been named best mascot 2006, as voted on at gameops.com.

The Raptor was recognized for his creativity and enthusiasm, as well as his contributions to the community.

This is the first time The Raptor has received the 'Best Mascot' award.

The Raptor has been a fan favourite at Toronto home games since the team's inception and is well known for his gravity-defying and acrobatic stunts.

The Raptor has made more than 3,500 appearances since his first official function for the team at the 1995 NBA draft in Toronto.

VISION QUEST

Forward Chris Bosh has been wearing contact lenses on the court since he was 16.

However, as a result of an eye infection suffered this week, Bosh contemplated not playing at all with them, meaning that his eye sight would be somewhat blurred.

Bosh reeled at the suggestion prior to last night's game in Cleveland that he could wear prescription sport glasses, either the type with the square lenses made popular by Horace Grant or the round ones worn by James Worthy.

"That would be the last option," he said.

He brushed aside a reporter's suggestion that laser eye surgery could be an option.

"Tiger Woods did it," interjected teammate Morris Peterson, listening in on the conversation.

"I'd have to think about it. I'm scared of that," Bosh said.
