TORONTO — DeMar DeRozan has fans worried about his mental health once again.

The Toronto Raptors star, who features in the NBA’s mental health PSA, posted on his Instagram story “Dark days, darker nights . . .” early Tuesday morning.

The words, set in type so tiny it was almost unreadable, against a black background, are also the title of a 2014 song by American hip-hop artist Tedashii.

“Could this be a reference to his mental health, or is this just something completely unrelated,” a Raptors fan asked on Reddit. “I hope he’s just enjoying a song but man, hope it’s not him going through something.”

It is unclear exactly what is meant here — could be just your average social media overreaction that we see a lot in today’s day & age. But, DeRozan recently opened up about depression issues in the past via The Players Tribune. To add, the devastating loss to the Cavaliers, and the Dwane Casey firing are still a fresh wounds as we speak. CTV Toronto had reached out to the Raptors and they stated ‘neither DeRozan or the team’ would comment on the Instagram post.
