Carter hurt in Raptors loss

Can things get any worse for the Raptors, they lose a game and lose Carter this may screw up any chance of trading him.The initial diagnosis was a strained left Achilles tendon, and Carter did not return to the game. Carter was hurt while dribbling along the baseline at the offensive end.

During and before the game there was a rumor that the Raptors were indeed in trade talks with a team out West. The team was later reviled to be the Hornets and the deal it happened may look something like this: The Raptors would send Carter, Jalen Rose and at least one other lower-salaried player to the Hornets for Toronto native Jamaal Magloire, P.J. Brown and two or three other players — all for salary-matching purposes. Some draft picks might be involved, too.

Magloire has a broken ring finger on his right hand and could be sidelined for another couple of months.

Reports last week suggested the Raptors had some interest in Brown, but those rumors did not involve Carter and/or Rose.

While the possibility of dealing Carter and Rose to the Portland Trail Blazers or New York Knicks also

could happen.

But if he is going to be out for any period out this could kill all trade talks.
