Raptors vs. Wizards Game Thread: Pre-game updates, TV info, and more

New, comments

Three games, three enticing matchups against Eastern Conference rivals. After downing the Cavs and Celtics, the Raptors will look to put their foot down with authority against the Wizards in D.C.

Game thread: Toronto Raptors at Washington Wizards Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Settle in guys and gals, it’s game night for the Raptors. They’ve traveled overnight to the American Capital, Washington D.C., to take on the Wizards in their first back-to-back (and their third game in four nights) of the young season. We’ve got everything you need to follow the game right here, including lineup updates for those fantasy players out there.

As some of you may have heard, the Raptors are coming off a critical early-season home win against the Boston Celtics on Friday night — a game with little end-season importance, but one that will provide plenty of superlative talking points for the NBA media world until the two teams meet again.

Kawhi Leonard, who scored 31 points last night, will not be playing against the Wizards (rest). He will be joined on the bench by Delon Wright (adductor, thigh), who will miss his third straight game.

OG Anunoby is healthy and playing, and could be in line for a more featured role on the offensive end without Leonard in the lineup. For more details and commentary on this evening’s tilt, check out Zakaria Abdulle’s preview from this morning!
