Raptors Receive Good News on Sullinger, Wright
There is finally some good news on the Toronto Raptor front as the team has announced that both point guard Delon Wright and free agent acquisition Jared Sullinger are healthy enough to practice with the team.
Sullinger, the former Ohio State Buckeye power forward who spent the first few years of his career with the Boston Celtics, has not played a single regular season game in a Raptors uniform as he was recovering from left foot surgery. Wright, the second year guard, too has not been able to suit up with the team thus far in the 2016-17 campaign as he has been rehabilitating his right shoulder after arthroscopic surgery in August to fix a torn labrum.
Both men’s return to the court is yet to be known, but their status upgrade should come as good news for a scuffling Raptors team that has lost five of its last eight games.
While Wright’s return will add point guard depth, possibly sending rookie Fred VanVleet down to the 905, Sullinger’s return will be far more vital as the Raptor’s starting power forward position has been a revolving door over the first half of the season.
