Unfortunately, Ibaka himself is now out with flu-like symptoms, leaving the Raptors without two key centres tonight.

The Raptors have been suffering from injuries all season, with key components Pascal Siakam, Marc Gasol, Normal Powell, Fred VanVleet, and, of course, Lowry, missing for more than 10 games.

In fact, they are enjoying a franchise-high and league-best 14-game winning streak.

Tonight, they’ll struggle to keep it alive on homecourt in Toronto.
