While the Pelicans have enjoyed a very good start to the campaign, the Raptors has somewhat struggled up to this point. Yet, given the talent on both teams, this could be a very interesting watch for fans of the NBA.
Toronto Raptors - Team News
As per reports, the Toronto Raptors have no injury concerns to report at the moment.
However, Patrick McCaw is unlikely to be available due to health and safety precautions, because of which he missed the last few games for Toronto.
The team has undoubtedly missed the player's presence in their rotation, and it will be interesting to see how the franchise will replace his contributions to the roster.
Doubtful: Patrick McCaw
New Orleans Pelicans - Team News
In terms of injuries, only Wenen Gabriel is set to miss the New Orleans Pelicans' clash against the Toronto Raptors, due to a knee injury. The player has been stuck on the sidelines for a long time now. Fortunately for him and the franchise though, he will be back in the lineup within the next month as per reports.
While Nicolo Melli was earlier considered to be a doubt for this game, he has since been considered probable to play.
Injured: Wenyen Gabriel
