TORONTO (660 NEWS) – Some good news and some bad news for Raptors fans going into tonight’s game against the Timberwolves.
Starting point guard Kyle Lowry is set to return following his brief injury stint after slamming into big man Serge Ibaka and getting whiplash.
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.
Fortunately for the Raptors, a strong team presence and impressive performances off the bench have kept them winning.
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.
