BROOKLYN - Raptors iron man DeMar DeRozan will miss his first game in nearly two years when Toronto faces the Brooklyn Nets in an important Atlantic Division showdown on Monday. DeRozan, who did not make the trip to Brooklyn, sprained his left foot/ankle in Saturdays loss to the Clippers. X-rays were negative but there is no timetable for his return. The Raptors leading scorer sustained the injury early in the second quarter after coming down on the foot of Hedo Turkoglu. Slow to get up, DeRozan stayed in the game for just under seven minutes, also starting the third quarter before he hobbled to the locker room and was ruled out for the remainder of the contest. "He wanted to see if he could go, but he couldnt," Dwane Casey said following Saturdays loss. "He tried, but just couldnt get going." DeRozan hadnt seen the play when he spoke to the media after the game and couldnt say whether or not the defender had malicious intent. He and Turkoglu exchanged words on the court shortly after the injury occurred. "He was asking me what happened," said the Raptors guard. "Whether I was alright, and if I thought he came under me or not." Since the Raptors selected him with the ninth overall pick in the 2009 NBA draft, DeRozan has missed eight games in four-and-a-half seasons and just three since his rookie year. Seventh in the NBA in minutes played, DeRozan is averaging career-bests 21.8 points, 4.7 rebounds and 3.6 assists this season. Already missing Landry Fields, who underwent a surgical procedure on his wrist last week, the Raptors will be shorthanded at the wing positions for however long DeRozan is out. With John Salmons playing through a sore back, its unlikely the 34-year-old will be able to absorb DeRozans minutes. Casey will undoubtedly lean on sophomore Terrence Ross, coming off a remarkable 51-point career game. DeRozans injury could create an opportunity for Steve Novak to find his way back into the rotation and Greivis Vasquez may see more time in the backcourt alongside Kyle Lowry, depending on the matchup. Patrick Patterson made the trip to Brooklyn and is expected to play Monday after taking a Blake Griffin elbow to the face and breaking his nose on Saturday. Tyler Hansbrough, who has missed 13 straight games with an ankle injury, is also with the team and will be a game-time decision. Authentic NCAA Jerseys .

With Parker having a quiet game for once, Nicolas Batum and Boris Diaw provided the scoring as France won its first major basketball title by beating Lithuania 80-66 on Sunday. It was a victory that ended a decade of frustration for Parker and a talented French generation, which lost the final against Spain two years ago and took bronze in 2005. "Its been an unbelievable journey chasing this title," Parker said. "I would change nothing." The San Antonio Spurs guard led France to the under-18 world championship title in 2000, and said he made a promise back then that he would give the senior team its first international success as well. Thirteen years later, its mission accomplished. "I went to everyones room last night in the hotel and I told them that there was no way we were going to lose this game," Parker said. France broke open a close game by finishing the third quarter with a 14-0 run that kept Lithuania scoreless for four minutes. The French lead grew to 22 points with three minutes remaining in the third and Lithuania never came close to a comeback. Batum had 17 points and Diaw added 15, while Linas Kleiza led Lithuania with 20. Parker finished with 12 points, after scoring just four through the first three quarters. But his scoring and leadership duringg the run to the final -- including 32 points against defending champion Spain in the semifinals -- earned him the tournament MVP award.dddddddddddd "We had a perfect plan, the coach said they would double-team me and that I had to trust my teammates and not to worry if I dont score much," Parker said. After finally capturing that elusive gold -- in Frances record 36th appearance in the tournament -- Parker led the French team into the stands to celebrate with their fans after the final buzzer. Spain beat Croatia 92-66 earlier Sunday to earn the bronze medal. Guard Antoine Diot all but secured Frances victory with a 3-pointer at the buzzer of the third quarter, after a Lithuania turnover gave France the possession with 0.9 seconds left. Diaw threw the ball to Diot, who nailed a 3 that was upheld after the referees viewed the video to make sure he had beaten the clock. Batum finished the first half with 17 points, shooting 6-for-7 from the field and making three of four 3-pointers. Diaw took over in the third, scoring 11 points on drives to the basket and outside shots. "We didnt do a bad job defending Parker, but we forgot about the others," Lithuania coach Jonas Kazlauskas said. France coach Vincent Collet said his team had learned from the times it came up short in the past. "It wasnt the easiest way, but we improved starting with the quarterfinals. Its the 36th Euro for France and the first title, you can imagine how we feel," Collet said. ' ' '
