--F Joey Dorsey returned Saturday to help out a depleted roster that was missing big men Andrea Bargnani (bone spurs) and Reggie Evans (foot). Dorsey had missed four previous games with the flu but managed to give Toronto 13 minutes (two points, two rebounds) as an emergency fill-in.
--F Ed Davis was given a spot start in Saturday's game against the Clippers when Andrea Bargnani and Reggie Evans weren't able to go. He responded with a career-high 21 points and 11 rebounds in 39 minutes. It was his second double-double in a row (he had 18 points and 11 boards Friday against Golden State), but those were his first two double-doubles in nine games.
--G Jose Calderon had 14 points Saturday against the Clippers, making four of seven shots and all seven of his free throws. It was much needed because of the absence of leading scorer Andrea Bargnani and was just the first time in five games that Calderon had scored in double figures.
--C Andrea Bargnani (bone spurs in right ankle) did not play Saturday. He is day-to-day.
--F Reggie Evans (sore right foot) did not play Saturday. He is day-to-day.
--F Linas Kleiza (knee surgery) is out for the season.
