Raptors forward Jorge Garbajosa, whose season is likely over after suffering a gruesome ankle injury Monday night, was flying back to Toronto on Tuesday for further medical evaluation.

The Raptors rookie spent Monday night in a Boston hospital after injuring his left ankle late in Toronto's 95-87 loss to the Celtics. The Spaniard was scheduled to see Raptors physician Dr. Paul Marks and Dr. Johnny Lau, a foot and ankle specialist at Toronto Western Hospital, according to a Raptors spokesperson.

This sucks. Now we can't get Bargs and Garbs mixed up. There's only one of them.

Seriously though, definite suckage. I suppose this is the place to plug my idea of shortening the season to 65 games spread out over the same amount of time.

I don't think it'd have an effect on injuries like this one, but it'd help in many other areas.

Probably Juan Dixon if he is healthy.

Sam has shown that he has more faith in Dixon than he does in Peterson.

Season probably over? Let's hope he can play next year. Ankle injuries are just about the worst thing that can happen to a big.

Remember Chris Mihm? His wasn't nearly that bad (just a sprain) and he hasn't played in more than a year...

Fixing Garbajosa's ankle would spread some cheer.

Who needed something half-way official to know his season was over?

The Raptors are taking hits. Let's see if Chris Botch can give TJ a hand in leading this team. I guess it just follows my outlook: **** happens, it's the timing and how you handle it that counts.

I guess this means 30+ minutes for either Juan Dixon or Joey Graham.
