Gay ready to return for Raptors
Oakland, CA (Sports Network) - Toronto Raptors forward Rudy Gay will play in Monday's game against Golden State after sitting out the team's previous contest with back spasms.
Gay participated in Monday's morning shootaround without any complications and has subsequently been cleared for game action.
The seventh-year pro has averaged a team-best 20.5 points per game since joining the Raptors in a trade with the Memphis Grizzlies on Jan. 30. Toronto has gone 7-7 since acquiring Gay, though the club is presently mired in a four-game losing streak.
The Raptors also announced that forward Andrea Bargnani will be a game-time decision for Monday's tilt after the former No. 1 overall pick had a bad reaction to medication he had been taking.
