Valanciunas Was Active for Game 4 But Went Unused by Casey


Raptors center Jonas Valanciunas was active and available for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday night but did not play in the 105-99 win.

Raptors coach Dwane Casey said postgame that he almost inserted Valanciunas late in the second quarter but decided against it given the intensity of the game. Casey added that he hopes a couple of extra days of rest will be key for the center prior to Game 5, which is Wednesday in Cleveland.
