The Toronto Raptors will have to weather the storm once again with the latest news that forward DeMarre Carroll will be out with an injury. Lucas Nogueira is also out with a left ankle sprain. Toronto is already missing their starting centre Jonas Valanciunas, so they’ll be missing two starters for the foreseeable future.
DeMarre Carroll (right knee contusion) and Lucas Nogueira (sprained left ankle) are out tonight for #Raptors vs. Lakers. #rtz

James Johnson will surely see his minutes increase, but expect to see a lot more Terrence Ross. With Ross’ contract and lack of production thus far Dwane Casey would naturally throw him into the starting line-up to give him a boost.
Yeah. Ross will get the start tonight.
Please do something.
The Raptors have also recalled Delon Wright and Bruno Caboclo. They’ll be active for tonight’s game vs. the Lakers.
