When we learned on October 5 that Chris Boucher would be out for at least 3-4 weeks due to a finger injury, we all understood that seeing him starting the course on the parquet seemed almost impossible. Well, he has. Cutting deadlines, the pivot has received the go-ahead to train and play without any restrictions, so he could be present in the match that the Raptors play against the Wizards tonight; reports Lori Ewing of The Canadian Press.
The Canadian center faces a key campaign in his career. Last season he showed that he can do a lot of things well on the court, signing an average of 13.6 points, 6.7 rebounds and 1.9 blocks in just 24.2 minutes per night; numbers that in this course 2021-22 he wants to take further in order to achieve a great contract in the summer of 2022, at which time he will be an unrestricted free agent. Despite such a context, take this year like the previous ones, from work.
“My whole career, all my time in Toronto… I’ve never been promised anything. I had to work to get everything I have and I see it the same way this year. Ultimately, it’s about being consistent. That’s the only thing I have to focus on, “he explains in statements collected by Michael Grange from Sportsnet.ca.
