Raptors put Achiuwa on the “questionable” list for tonight with a left knee bruise, joining Watanabe (quad) and Bonga (toe) in that category. Anunoby’s ruled out and they aren’t saying yet who’ll rest but you can be pretty sure a couple of guys will – 12:07 PM
Josh Lewenberg
@JLew1050
The Raptors have ruled Anunoby out for tonight’s game vs Houston. Achiuwa is listed as questionable with a left knee contusion. None of the other regulars are on the early injury report, but that could change closer to game time. Would expected a rest night or two. – 12:06 PM

According to basketball-reference, Raptors have a 96.2% chance of finishing in 5th. They’ll be virtually locked in there with a win over HOU or CHI loss to CHA tonight.
Assuming that’s where they end up, Philly’s got a 64.4% chance of finishing 4th, Boston 29.3%, Milwaukee 3.8% – 11:41 AM

I’d be cool if Joel Embiid wins MVP. Been hunting the 👑 for 3 years & having his best season. Giannis Antetokounmpo is more than worthy of a 3rd MVP. So many take his brilliance for granted. But the case for Nikola Jokic keeps smacking me in the face like Rick James in the club. – 11:36 PM

Raptors beat 76ers, take 2-game lead over Bulls for 5th seed with two to play. Bulls own tiebreak.
Bulls would have to win out, beating Hornets at home and Timberwolves on road. And Raptors would have to lose out, to Rockets at home and Knicks on road.

Not going to re-litigate the Harden trade because I think there’s a lot of gray area in why players perform abnormally poorly or well.
But, I’ll say this — hard to see anyone giving him a deal in free agency that pays him more next season than he would get by opting in. – 10:55 PM

2 *may* mean a date with the nets but could be cavs, hawks, or hornets
3 is almost definitely the bulls
4 is almost definitely the raptors – 8:01 AM

After scoring 24 in his return, Norm Powell is getting 2019 Toronto vibes from Clips. “We can be really dangerous,” he told ESPN. “…I’m excited for what we can do. I think teams are definitely going to have to worry about us, just how deep our team is.” espn.com/nba/story/_/id…4:04 AM
