While neither team has started the season too well, the Raptors desperately need a win to get their campaign going. Both teams are pushing for a berth in the NBA playoffs and this could turn this fixture into a very competitive affair between the two franchises.
Team News - Boston Celtics
The Boston Celtics reportedly have a fresh injury concern in Jeff Teague ahead of this game. Per reports, the 32-year-old sprained his ankle in the game against the Detroit Pistons and will not be available for selection against the Toronto Raptors.
This could seriously affect the franchise's rotation during this game and end up holding them back.
Kemba Walker, Romeo Langford, and Javonte Green are all out with serious injuries and will not feature against the Raptors.
Injured: Jeff Teague, Kemba Walker, Romeo Langford, Javonte Green
Team News - Toronto Raptors
The Toronto Raptors have no fresh injury concerns and will have almost all players available for selection ahead of this game. The only absentee for the Raptors against the Boston Celtics will be Patrick McCaw.
The 25-year-old is still recovering from a knee injury and isn't expected to be back for at least the next four weeks. Given how much the franchise needs quality players in its rotation right now, the team will really miss McCaw during this period.
Injured: Patrick McCaw
