We’re almost to the All-Star break and the finale sets up as an adventurous evening. Most of the games have at least something going on, so let’s take a look at the slate.
Toronto Raptors (back end) at Boston Celtics
Injuries: Fred VanVleet (O, protocols), Pascal Siakam (O, protocols), OG Anunoby (O, protocols), Malachi Flynn (O, protocols), Jalen Harris (O, G League), Patrick McCaw (O, protocols), Marcus Smart (O, calf), Romeo Langford (O, wrist)
The Raptors aren’t going to even have Jalen Harris today, so technically they’re even thinner than usual. Wednesday, it was a three-man PF rotation with Paul Watson getting the bulk of the minutes, so basically I’d ignore that position. Norman Powell and Kyle Lowry should be in a pretty big spot here, especially with the Celtics’ defense struggling to contain guards.
