The Star Tribune on Randy Foye and the fact that he has situs inversus, "a condition in which heart and other internal organs are reversed -- a mirror image of the ordinary body."

The Daily Herald on whether players who skipped college to go straight to the NBA "are missing something.:

Mike James on returning to Toronto tomorrow:
"I don't see any reason why (Raptors fans) wouldn't (cheer me)," James said in a telephone interview. "I didn't give them any reason not to cheer for me. I gave my heart to Toronto. Every time I stepped on the court, I played to win. I can't see why fans would hold it against me that I didn't sign back in Toronto. Talk to Colangelo."

Marko Jaric on the team's win in Indiana:
"Some guys said we took the monkey off our back," Jaric said. "But I think we still have a couple more games to win. We have to come back and fight harder the next couple of weeks."
