News: Valanciunas scored 22 points with 13 rebounds and three blocks in Sunday's win over New Zealand to send Lithuania through to the quarter-finals in the FIBA World Cup.
Impact: New Zealand couldn't provide Valanciunas with much of a challenge in the paint, but he'll have a tougher go on Tuesday against a Turkish squad that features Omer Asik at center. Through six games in the tournament, Valanciunas is averaging 13.0 points, 7.8 boards, 1.3 blocks, and a tournament-leading 77 percent shooting from the field in 22 minutes per game.

News: Hayes may find himself in another uniform this season after the Raptors signed Greg Steimsma to a one-year contract.
Impact: Will Cherry and Jordan Hamilton are both on non-guaranteed contracts, which could make them roster casualties as well, but with Jonas Valanciunas as the starter, rookie Lucas Nogueira needing some minutes and Amir Johnson still likely to slide over to the five when coach Dwane Casey goes with a small lineup, the depth chart at center might just be too crowded to accommodate both Stiemsma and Hayes.
