Ross (knee) was pulled from practice Sunday after taking a knee to the thigh, Josh Lewenberg of TSN Sports reports.
After missing three games in a row with a sore knee, Ross was able to return for the Raptors' preseason finale Friday, but was restricted to just 10 minutes. He was cleared to practice Sunday and appears to be over his sore knee, although he was forced from practice early after suffering what is likely a thigh bruise. Considering it's just a bruise, Ross shouldn't be in danger of missing Wednesday's season opener versus the Pistons, although it's something to monitor for the time being.
Updating a previous note: Ross (knee) is now suiting up for Friday's preseason finale against the Wizards.
It was originally reported that Ross would play in this contest, but he was deemed a late scratch shortly before tip off. However, his status has again been changed to available for the game. It is somewhat confusing that the Raptors would play him in an exhibition contest if his status was that up in the air, but he has ultimately decided to play.
Updating a previous note: Ross (knee) will not play in Friday's preseason finale against the Wizards.
It looks like Ross was a late scratch from the team's final preseason game, but the reason why is currently unknown. It's possible Ross suffered a setback or the team just wanted to be cautious with him. Nevertheless, the expectation remains that Ross will be ready for Wednesday's season opener against Detroit. Look for Norman Powell to get some extended minutes in Ross' absence.
Ross (knee) will play in Friday's preseason finale against against the Wizards, Ryan Wolstat of The Toronto Sun reports.
Ross missed the previous three preseason games with a sore knee, but after head coach Dwane Casey the small forward was unlikely to play in the finale, it looks like Ross is ready to go. He will likely be limited Friday night as a precaution, but expect Ross to be fully ready for the team's regular season opener on Oct. 26.
Ross remains bothered by a sore knee and will miss a third consecutive preseason contest. Coach Dwane Casey said Ross will likely sit out the preseason finale Friday against the Wizards, as well, but the goal is to have him available at full strength for the team's Oct. 26 season opener.
