Casey said forward Linas Kleiza’s season debut “should be any time now,”

per toronto sun

will be interesting to see what happens with the sf rotation.
i really hope butler is benched instead of johnson but I have a feeling it will be the other way around.

Butler will continue to start while Kleiza will get spot minutes here and there until he is up to speed with the system and into playing shape then he will move into the starting line-up and Butler will go sit at the end of the bench hopefully never seen except in garbage time even then we should see Gary Forbes first.

I actually like Kleiza he's a beast. Way more offensively competent than Johnson and plays well in the post. Both are good rebounders but Johnson is a far superior defender.

The only think Kleiza is a beast at is being tank commander.

Should all Raps' fans on this board just adopt the title of tank commandos for the rest of the season?

We dont have to adopt anything. It is being forced upon us by the players.
