Yuta Update

For those of you who may be wondering what happened to Yuta, he has been slogging through a rehab after injuring his calf at a preseason practice. Originally tagged as minor, it has taken much longer to heal than expected, causing him to miss the first 18 games of the season already.

In this morning's interview, some good news, and although far from a sure thing, Yuta may get some action tonight. He looks pretty upbeat in this clip.

Re: Yuta Update

Yuta did indeed make his 2021-2022 NBA debut last night. Although he his offense was a little rusty (he was 0-3 from the field), he did end up with 3-4 FTs, and was all over the floor on defense. He had one of the NBA's highlights of the night.

Re: Yuta Update

Looks like Yuta is slowly coming back from his injury. Now lets hope the Raptors start winning some games again.

Re: Yuta Update

Great find.
Was of course, at another game, but maybe this one bears buying on NBA TV online.
Double-Double for Yuta in 26 min.

Re: Yuta Update

Very nice highlight post. Thanks.
Quite the spin move. 
Announcers say because he's such a good teammate, passes and does all the dirty work, also shown in the
highlights, you love to see Yuta have a game like this.

Re: Yuta Update

Keep making us proud Yuta!
We haven't had much to be proud about these last 5 years.

Re: Yuta Update

Gary Payton tried to poster Yuta.  Didn’t end so well.

Re: Yuta Update

Saw that and Yuta's highlights. 
   Would note that Yuta's return seems to have had a positive effect on the Raptors.
  Posted on the other dunk discussion.
But for wins, better for our guys to try and be more like GW's own team player and fierce NBA defender Yuta than Gary Payton, truly rejected in his glory seeking.

Re: Yuta Update

Toronto just tipped off at Cleveland, and Yuta got the start. Toronto will be missing a bunch of key players(it appears as if all 5 of their starters are out due to health and safety protocols) so Yuta could have a career game tonight. I don't think the game is being televised anywhere outside of Toronto or Cleveland, but I wanted to inform everyone of this so you can watch, if you have the means, or check for updates.

Re: Yuta Update

Yuta appears to be playing well so far--though his team isn't as it is playing a bunch of unfamiliar names who seem to be recently added for bulking up the Covid-depleted roster.
Looks like 13 points and 7 rebounds for Yuta at the half.

Re: Yuta Update

Yuta finished with 26 points and 13 rebounds (both team-highs/career-highs). He had a great game shooting the ball and took 20 shots in the game. Toronto basically had no one healthy. Not sure why the NBA thought it was a good idea to put that product out on the floor with so many players out, but glad Yuta got to shine.




I know this is a Yuta thread, but Matt Moyer made a three at the buzzer for his PSK Lions team (professional team in Germany) to give them an 87-86 win over Rostock. Happy for him - I believe he is averaging 5.6 ppg on the year. That was only one of two shots he took yesterday, but it was a big one.

Re: Yuta Update

The NBA has cancelled a bunch of games recently because of COVID so they've had no issue cancelling games. Maybe the NBA doesn't care whether Toronto wins or loses games, so they decided Toronto was going to play no matter what?? I think Yuta and Chris Boucher were the only rotation guys who played last night for the Raptors. The Cavs won the game 144-99, but Yuta had the best game of his NBA career last night(double-double) as dmvpiranha wrote, and probably earned even more trust/confidence from the Raptors coaches
