NEW ORLEANS - Jonas Valanciunas stay in The Big Easy will be a brief one. Dustin McGowan Jersey . After making his All-Star debut in Fridays Rising Stars Challenge, the Raptors sophomore centre wont be sticking around for the duration of the weekends festivities, thinking about the big picture instead. Valanciunas, who scored four points in 19 minutes for the victorious Team Hill in the annual rookie-sophomore showcase, will spend two days on a beach in Mexico. How soon does he leave? "As soon as possible," he joked after Fridays game. "I want to see that sun." Scheduled to take off from New Orleans Saturday morning, Valanciunas vacation will also be short-lived. He and the rest of the team will reconvene in Washington Monday for practice but a little relaxation before that could go a long way for the Raptors young centre. "[I can] just relax my body," he said of the excursion, "have some time off to relax my mind, relax my body and be ready for the next half of the season." With 30 regular season games and - barring a complete Raptors collapse - at least a few playoff contests to go, Valanciunas should surpass his minute total from last season in the next week, hes 32 minutes shy of matching his rookie mark. After a strong eight-game stretch, averaging 15.4 points and 10.8 rebounds, to close out last month and begin February, the 21-year-old was rusty going into the break. Despite grabbing 14 boards, he connected on just one of his nine attempts, logging just 24 minutes in Wednesdays win over the Hawks. "He needs a rest," Dwane Casey said after that game. "He needs a mental rest." The stretch run will be uncharted territory for Valanciunas and the Raptors will need him at full strength, both physically and mentally. His time in New Orleans, however brief, was not especially taxing. Valanciunas four points was tied with Phoenixs Miles Plumlee for lowest in the game. In general the event is not one that lends itself to prototypical big men. Its a high-scoring, up and down display of athleticism and three-point shooting. "Everybody wants to score," he said. "Everybody wants to do some beautiful dunks, beautiful shots and my job is to bang inside." Valanciunas may have been the only one on the court looking to set screens and box out. Offensively, he was out of place, failing to convert three alley-oops, getting a hook shot blocked by the Pelicans Anthony Davis and even missing a rare three-pointer. "That was my goal the whole game," he said with a smile. "To make a three." Valanciunas team, drafted by Grant Hill, was victorious by a score of 142-136 over Team Chris Webber. Detroits Andre Drummond was awarded MVP, voted on by the fans, after scoring 30 points and grabbing 25 boards. Clevelands Dion Waiters had 31 points and the Knicks Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 36 for Team Webber. Andre Dawson Jersey . So what happens?

Currently 13th, Bouchard is assured of equalling that when the next rankings are released Monday.PHILADELPHIA - Eagles coach Chip Kelly wont admit it, but its appearing more and more likely that Michael Vick will start on Sunday, when the Giants come to Lincoln Financial Field. Vick on Thursday practiced successfully for a third straight day and is set to undergo his toughest physical challenge of the week Friday when hell test out his hamstring for the first time since he injured it on Oct. 6 against the Giants (1-6) in New York. "Gotta get out here and run," Vick said Thursday. "Tomorrows not a walk-through day for me." Itll be the first time in almost three weeks Vick will turn it loose without holding anything back. The test, he said, will be straightforward. "Run 100 yards as fast as I can," he said. Nick Foles has quarterbacked the Eagles (3-4) in Vicks absence, but he suffered a concussion last Sunday, when he threw for just 80 yards on 11-for-29 passing in a 17-3 loss to Dallas.

But Kelly said he and Vick have yet to talk about it. "Well see where Mike is," Kelly said. "Again its how do you respond?" Foles hasnt practiced this week and must pass a series of physical and neurological tests before he can return. "Nick was here," Kelly said. "He worked out with the trainers. He will not practice, and well see. Hes got to go through a protocol. But hes back. He was at our morning session and did some conditioning stuff with our trainers." If both Vick and Foles cant go, rookie Matt Barkley will be forced into the starting role Sunday. Last week, Barkley threw three interceptions in the fourth quarter. __ Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
