The pain is still there in his right knee, but Raptors forward Chris Bosh is back on the court at least.
Bosh was on a basketball court yesterday for the first time since he took himself out of a game Feb. 29 at the Air Canada Centre. He was hoisting some shots just to keep the feel for shooting while he waits for his knee to get better.
Bosh wore a brace for the court session, but it's one he is adamant fans will not see once he gets back for real. It's for preventative purposes only and he refuses to wear one in a game as it hampers what he is trying to do.
As for when he will be back in a game, though, Bosh is still no clearer to answering that question than he was that night against the Indiana Pacers.
"It's hindering a lot of things," Bosh said of the knee.
"Even if I wanted to play I couldn't help the team. I would be getting scored on constantly. I would only hurt the team."
HE SAID, THEY SAID
That disgruntled Raptors season ticket holder upset with his ticket prices going up got the attention of MLSEL.
MLSEL says Walter Dubowec, a 12-year season ticket holder, inflated the increases he has seen. Dubowec stands by his original numbers (give or take 0.5%).
Dubowec's contention that his ticket prices will rise 13% was countered by MLSEL, which says ticket prices across the board have gone up only 7.5%.
According to the team owners, Dubowec's two season tickets last year cost him $12,060 and have gone up to $12,960, this year, a 7.5% increase.
Dubowec, who says he is using the numbers off the Raptors.com season ticket holder account file, says he paid $11,536 for this season and is being asked to pony up $12,984 for next, a 12.5% increase.
