Adrian Wojnarowski: Kyle Lowry will miss Toronto’s game at Portland with thigh bruise — Kawhi Leonard will play, per Raptors.
Michael Grange: The Raptors are 7-1 without Kawhi Leonard in the lineup, with all games played on the road and four of them on the second night of back-to-backs. They have a point differential of 13.9. The 73-win Dubs +/- was 10.8. They have multiple blowout wins vs. Elite teams. So weird.
