The Star's look at Group D

Mike Ganter's article in the Toronto Sun talks to the roster decisions Canada's coaching and management staff must make.  Reserve forward/center Kyle Landry was officially scratched from the roster yesterday and the article alludes to probably one more anonymous tournament-threatening injury over and above Andy Rautins' knee.  We hope to have the official roster from Canada Basketball later today.
