Kleiza missed 43 games
Amir Johnson missed 12 games and was pretty much playing through pain all season.

So basically all of our best players other than Derozan were ravaged by serious injuries. Had all of them been moderately healthy, we could've definitely won 38 games. But the cards just didn't fall correctly for us this year.

Very well could be true, but I much rather have a high draft pick than get destroyed by Chicago in the first round.

the only thing that didn't fall correctly for us was bargnani.

I love the belief in Raptorland (and any other Toronto sports community) that we're the ONLY team that has serious injuries. Somehow every year if we'd just got hurt less we'd be champs. News flash: Every team has to deal with injuries. If this team couldn't handle losing Reggie Evans because of Bargniani's ubelievable defensive inefficiencies then that tells you just how poorly the team was put together. That's even assuming that Reggie had the God-like impact on the W/L column that people seem to think he had despite the fact that he's Reggie Evans and not a combination of Wilt, MJ, Shaq and Jesus all rolled into one.
