TORONTO -- They called it a serious mistake that Jonas Valanciunas must learn from. But otherwise the Toronto Raptors players and staff are standing behind their starting centre after he was charged with drunk driving. The 21-year-old apologized to his teammates, and will play in Wednesdays game against the visiting Philadelphia 76ers, but news of his arrest drew a large contingent of media to practice on Tuesday and negative attention to a team bound for the playoffs for the first time in six seasons. "(I was) disappointed a little bit," Raptors GM Masai Ujiri said of his reaction to the arrest. "As an organization, its not something we take lightly, its not something I feel we are just going to brush aside. (But) hes a young kid ... I look at all of you here and I wonder what we were all doing when we were 21, so there are mistakes that are made." Valanciunas was arrested early Monday morning in Wasaga Beach, Ont., a popular vacation destination for college students about 100 kilometres north of downtown Toronto, and charged with having more than 80 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood. Police say they began investigating after a report that a vehicle went through a drive-thru with open beer bottles visible. The Lithuanian met with Ujiri for an hour on Monday, and had his "face in his hands," the GM said. He also met with Tim Leiweke, the president and CEO of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment. "I think he feels he let his teammates down, he let his fans down, the organization," Ujiri said. "Thats Jonas, hes a great kid. And I think he made some kind of a mistake, but I think the most important thing is its not going to happen again, and he understands that." Ujiri spoke to a media horde of more than 40-strong. There were nine television cameras. Valanciunas was not made available to reporters after what coach Dwane Casey said was a great practice by the sophomore centre, but issued a statement with an apology on Monday. "I hold myself to a high standard and take my role as a member of the Toronto Raptors very seriously," Valanciunas said. "I apologize to the organization, my teammates, my family and my fans, and regret any negativity this incident has brought upon them." Valanciunass first court appearance is scheduled for Collingwood, Ont., on April 22, which is a couple of days after the start of the playoffs. Valanciunas does not have to attend and so a lawyer will stand in for him. He still may face a suspension of a couple of games by the NBA, but that wouldnt come until the results of his trial which would likely be during the summer. The Raptors will decide on any further punishment such as a fine or suspension following the leagues ruling. Most of the Raptors and their families attended the Toronto Blue Jays game on a day off from practice Sunday. Ujiri said Valanciunas instead went to Wasaga Beach with his wife and some friends. The seven-footer is averaging 11 points and 8.6 rebounds a game, and his growth this season is a big part of why the Raptors are in third in the Eastern Conference and poised to win the Atlantic Division title. Casey spoke of Valanciunas much like he would a son. "Like I told him, Im upset with him and disappointed, but hes mine so we love him," Casey said. "He made a mistake, but like any other young man has probably done before, or had the opportunity before. We dont condone it, the organization doesnt condone it, and its a tough time of year to do it. But its happened. ... "We all make mistakes, its what we do after it that is how were going to be judged." Kyle Lowry said the young teammate that he views as a little brother was "sick right now" over the mistake. "Hes really hurt by it, hes really embarrassed by it, very disappointed in himself. I can tell you that for sure," the veteran point guard said. "Its just a mistake that he made, its unfortunate that it happened to such a good kid in JV, but it happened, hes 21, hes going to learn from it. Im sure hell never make that mistake again," he added. Lowry said his advice was: "Just be more responsible. We have all the benefits of having drivers and taxis. Thats it, be more responsible." Raptors all-star DeMar DeRozan said the incident was a regrettable mistake, but added the players support for each other in any situation is part of what has made Toronto one of the best teams in the East this season. "At the end of the day, were all human. We can look at everybody in here and ask them: have they done something wrong, or made a mistake in life. Its part of life. Its something you learn from and grow from." "No matter what guys go through, were always there for them, family, whatever it may be, somebodys kid is sick ... its always something, and were always there for one another. Thats big because you dont get that with every team that you play for." The Raptors said the negative news wont be a distraction to the team that has won six of its last seven games. "Not at all," Lowry said. "We had a great practice today, really spirited, really competitive, really positive vibe in there." "Ive been coaching since 79 and Ive seen a little bit of everything," Casey added. "This is very serious, a very serious matter, but its not enough to distract the team and that type of thing. "His teammates were very supportive of him, and to them its a great lesson also, the focus and the discipline you have to have in your own life to go forward." The last Raptor to be charged with drunk driving while still a member of the team was Dee Brown, who was stopped by police in 1999 in Toronto and charged with impaired driving and later convicted. But a judge found he was a victim of racial profiling and overturned the conviction. Cheap Dennis Rodman Jersey . - Frankie (The Answer) Edgar dominated B. Cheap Rajon Rondo Jersey .

There is plenty of blame to be shared as a result of the most recent NHL player (Pittsburghs Brooks Orpik) to be evacuated from the ice on a stretcher following an ugly incident Saturday night in Boston.NEW YORK -- The Minnesota Twins are waiting for Oswaldo Arcia to consistently have nights like the one he had Friday. Arcia homered and threw out a runner at home plate, Ricky Nolasco pitched six solid innings for his first win in more than a month, and the Twins flexed some muscle in beating the New York Yankees 6-1. "We really have hopes for this guy. We like him an awful lot," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "You saw that tonight, what he can do." Josh Willingham and Trevor Plouffe also connected against Vidal Nuno (1-2) for the light-hitting Twins, winners for the second time in eight games. Texas and Kanas City were the only American League teams to enter Friday with fewer homers than the Twins 39. "Thats a big difference for us, two guys in the middle of our order," Plouffe said of Willingham and Arcia, who both rejoined the Twins on Monday. Willingham broke his left wrist on April 6. The 23-year-old Arcia strained his right wrist two days earlier, then spent time in the minors. Arcia has at least one hit in all five games since his return. Kurt Suzuki and former Yankees infielder Eduardo Nunez had RBI singles in the eighth, giving Minnesota its highest run total since scoring eight against Boston on May 13. Nolasco (3-5) has struggled in his first AL season of a nine-year career. He had not won since April 24, a span of six starts. But the right-hander was effectively wild in keeping New York from making any solid contact. Facing the Yankees for the first time in 240 big league games -- 223 starts -- Nolasco gave up a run on seven hits and four walks. He struck out three while throwing 107 pitches, 59 for strikes. "A hard six innings," Gardenhire said. "Its never easy against these guys." Wind was whipping through the stadium when Arcia homered to right field with one out in the second. Several minutes earlier, a brief but heavy rain shower in the first inning sent fans scampering for cover. Willingham led off the fourth with a drive over the 399-foot marker in left-centre, his second long ball since coming off the disabled list Monday. Arcia followed with a single, then Plouffe hit a two-run shot into Monument Park in centre field for a 4-1 lead. The four runs allowed by Nuno ended a streak of 14 straight games in which Yankees starters allowedd three earned runs or fewer.dddddddddddd Nuno retired 11 of the final 12 batters he faced and struck out seven without allowing a walk in 6 2-3 innings. "His stuff was pretty decent," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "But when he made a mistake, they hit it out of the park." Twins centre fielder Danny Santana left in the third inning when he was cut on his left eyelid by his own bouncing batting helmet. Santana was sliding headfirst into third base on a successful steal attempt when his helmet flew off. It hit the dirt and caromed up, clipping his eye. Santana was replaced by Aaron Hicks, who had missed two games with a stiff back. Santana got seven stitches and said he probably wont be able to play until the swelling around his eye goes down. The Yankees tied it 1-all in the third on Jacoby Ellsburys RBI double and had opportunities to cut into the Twins three-run lead in the fifth and sixth. Arcia helped end both rallies with rocket throws from right field. In the fifth, his accurate heave on Derek Jeters one-out single forced Brett Gardner to hold at third. Jeter strayed too far off first and Gardner broke for home. The speedy Gardner was tagged out in a rundown. "Its just a bad read, and its going to happen from time to time," Girardi said of Jeter getting caught off first. Arcia threw out Brian Roberts trying to score on Yangervis Solartes single to end the sixth. "Hes always had a good arm," Willingham said. "I think its more consistency with him." NOTES: The Twins last hit three homers in a game on Sept. 10, 2013. ... Yankees OF-DH Carlos Beltran (bone spur, right elbow) was very happy after a pain-free batting practice session. ... New York RHP Shawn Kelley (back) had his first bullpen session since being sidelined May 7. He will likely have another one Sunday. ... Gardenhire said RHP Mike Pelfrey, who had Tommy John surgery in 2012, has inflammation in his elbow and is being treated with medication. Pelfreys velocity has dropped from low 90s to around 87 mph. Gardenhire said Pelfrey was experiencing tingling in his fingers. ... Twins OF Sam Fuld (concussion) did cardio exercises and some light hitting off a tee. ... Up next: Minnesota RHP Kevin Correia (2-6) faces Yankees RHP Masahiro Tanaka (7-1) on Saturday.
