DeMar DeRozan Out Indefinitely - Groin

The Toronto Raptors will be without All-Star SG DeMar DeRozan for a while, after he tore his groin. DeRozan is averaging 19 points per game, 4 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game this season. It will be interesting to see if the Raptors go with Lou Williams as a starter, move James Johnson to the SF position and shift Terrance Ross to SG or start Greivis Vasquez and Kyle Lowry together in the backcourt. Either way, the Raptors 2nd ranked offense will have 16 shots per game to spread around, most likely to be picked up first by Lowry. 

Unfortunately, the SG market is quite thin these days, and DeRozan owners will have to turn to guys like Corey Brewer, who could be traded any day now, O.J. Mayo, or even some SG eligible players like Mo Williams, or Brian Roberts!
