Dan Carter is hoping to be fit for Racing 92s Top 14 play-off against Toulouse on Saturday, live on Sky Sports. [url=]Cheap Emmanuel Sanders Jersey[/url] . The New Zealand legend has been missing from the pitch since limping out of the European Champions Cup final three weeks ago with a calf problem.Carter has been resting ever since and missed Racings final three regular season league matches, including last weekends 40-25 victory over Montpellier that secured a home play-off tie. The 34-year-old returned to training just before the Montpellier clash but trained alone. He is likely to be called upon this weekend where he should line up opposite compatriot and fellow All Black international Luke McAlister.Racing come up against a Toulouse side in fine form and on a six-match winning run, during which time they beat the top two - Clermont and Toulon - as well as Racing. Only Toulon scored more tries during the regular season than Toulouse.McAlister was rested against Grenoble last weekend when a youthful Toulouse romped to a crushing 53-14 victory.These two sides have met twice before at this stage of the competition, in 2013 and 2014, both times at Toulouses ground with honours even.Its not just Carter that Racing are hoping to get back for the Toulouse visit, but also his fellow Kiwis, No 8 Chris Masoe and centre Casey Laulala, as well as France prop Edy Ban Arous.Racing are aiming to finish their season on a high following the disappointment of losing the European final to Saracens.They were criticised last week for not pushing for the attacking bonus in their win over Montpellier - a result that would have seen them take second place ahead of Toulon and earn a bye this weekend.But scrum-half Maxime Machenaud said after that match that they were fully concentrated on the job ahead.We have three more matches to be champions. But theres no euphoria because we know whats waiting for us (this) weekend against Toulouse, a massive team, he said.There are six huge teams left for one place (champions), but first of all were going after a semi-final place.RegretsToulouse have some regrets about finishing fifth in the regular season, with coach Jean-Baptiste Elissalde believing they should have finished higher.We could have out-dipped everyone on the line in this league. We deserved to be one or two places higher, said Elissalde, who added that the trip to Racing was not mission impossible. Jannie du Plessis (l), Francois Steyn (c) and Bismarck du Plessis of Montpellier celebrate after beating Harlequins in the 2016 Challenge Cup Final On Sunday, Montpellier and Castres meet for the fifth time in six years in the play-offs.Montpellier won 18-17 at Castres in 2011 but then lost to the same opponents in the next three years in a row before neither side made it into the top six last season. Weve been playing them (in the play-offs) for several years now, this time were at home, said Montpellier scrum-half Benoit Paillaugue about the Castres match.Were going to have to play the perfect match because weve got the taste of something fabulous and we want to taste it again.Paillaugue was referring to Montpelliers European Challenge Cup victory over Harlequins three weeks ago, the clubs first ever major trophy.Castres, the 2013 champions, needed a late charge to pip Bordeaux-Begles to sixth place. They won their last three games while Bordeaux lost two of theirs.The aim was the top six, the season is long and weve been through every emotion but... we can be proud and satisfied that weve achieved this objective, said Castres centre Remi Lamerat.

Although DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry have shown no sign of wearing down, each logging more playing time than they have previously in their careers, Casey would like to keep them as fresh as possible for the stretch run, something that may be easier said than done. Sitting 9 1/2 games ahead of ninth-place Detroit in the Eastern Conference standings, Toronto - the Easts third seed - is poised to make its first postseason appearance in six years. With that comes another rarity for the franchise, playing meaningful games in March and April. The challenge for Casey and the Raptors coaching staff will be in managing the rotation, loosening it enough to give the guards a breathier - together or separately - without sacrificing important games. "Thats the hard thing," Casey acknowledged following Wednesdays practice. "Weve got to buy them a few minutes here and there but every possession - not only every game, every quarter [but] every possession - is meaningful." "When you start looking at scoring, we hit a drought the other night against Golden State right before the fourth quarter but we were just trying to buy minutes for those guys off the floor. Its a catch-22." DeRozan is fourth in the league, averaging just over 38 minutes per game, behind only Carmelo Anthony, James Harden and Kevin Durant while Lowry is 14th, logging roughly 36 a night. Amongst NBA duos, only Houstons pair of Harden and Chandler Parsons as well as Golden States Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson play more. In February, DeRozan played over 40 minutes a night, with Lowry nearly hitting 38. Since the early-December trade, Casey has been rolling out a strict nine-man rotation, using primarily Greivis Vasquez and John Salmons to spell Lowry, DeRozan and Terrence Ross. Getting reliable contribution from his reserves and piecing together the right combinations will bee essential for the Raptors coach to expand the rotation enough to buy his backcourt duo more downtime on the bench. [url=]Cheap Broncos Jerseys[/url]. One player hed like to see more of, who could help in taking the burden off Lowry and DeRozan, is newcomer Nando De Colo. The versatile guard has played just eight minutes since being acquired from the Spurs in a deadline day trade two weeks ago. Although Casey has had trouble pinpointing where exactly De Colo fits in his lineup, he anticipates using the 26-year-old as a secondary ball handler, likely at the two or three position. "Weve got to make sure we have the right combinations on the court, that way we dont sacrifice scoring, but he knows how to play, he has a feel for the game," Casey said of De Colo. "You cant really put your finger on his position or what he is, a two, a three or a point [guard], but hes a basketball player. He just knows how to play." The Raptors got back to work Wednesday after taking a couple days off to satisfy a league mandate. "I thought we had decent focus," Casey said, "the usual first day back to school-type start, but I thought once guys got into it we ramped the intensity a little bit. "There was no resistance as far as the drills were concerned whatsoever, so I could sense they were anxious to get back. As a coach you dont want to lose that rhythm, thats the biggest fear. I didnt sense any of that today." While Jonas Valanciunas used the time off to get away from the game, spending the day ice fishing on Lake Simcoe (he returned home empty handed, without a fish), Terrence Ross took advantage of a rare mid-season opportunity for rest. Ross has been nursing a sprained left ankle, keeping him out of Sundays win over Golden State, but was able to practice in full Wednesday. "It happened at the best time," said Ross, who expects to be in uniform when the Raptors host Sacramento on Friday. "I got a few days off to stay off it and rest. Im feeling back to normal. Ive still got to do treatment on it but right now it feels good."
