Brooklyn Nets vs. Toronto Raptors Injury Report

The Toronto Raptors are hurting along their frontcourt. The once formidable unit is now down to its second string unit. Pascal Siakam is the heartbeat of the franchise, and the Raptors are not the same without him. Siakam remains out with a knee injury, and there is no timetable for his return.

Precious Achiuwa would have had an opportunity to take on some of the offensive burden left behind in Siakam's absence, but he is also injured. Achiuwa has an ankle injury that will keep him out for some time. Otto Porter Jr. is the ultimate glue guy for this Raptors team and contributes across the board. Porter Jr. is out with a toe injury. If you think it couldn't get any worse, versatile big man and on-court leader Scottie Barnes is highly questionable with a knee injury.

The Brooklyn Nets are significantly healthier and have put the Kyrie Irving saga behind them, for now. T.J. Warren remains the name of note here as he will be out of commission with a knee injury.

Brooklyn Nets vs. Toronto Raptors Betting Prediction

With the Toronto Raptors so banged up on the interior, it is tough to see them stopping anyone in the paint. It would be wise to for the Nets tot Nicholas Claxton involved early and often to take advantage of the missing-in-action Raptors.

Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant can alternate possessions driving into the paint with little resistance from the Raptors' defense. Fred VanVleet can lift the Raptors' offense for a short period, but ultimately, the Nets have too much talent and can overwhelm an outgunned Raptors roster.

Prediction: Brooklyn Nets +2 (-110) (O/U 222, -110)
