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

It’s the Kyle Lowry vs. Khris Middleton show, as the undefeated Raptors head into the Fiserv Forum to take on the also undefeated Milwaukee Bucks.

NBA: Milwaukee Bucks at Toronto Raptors John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

A marquee Monday night matchup got a bit downgraded this morning, as it was reported the Raptors will be resting Kawhi Leonard (first night of a back to back), and Giannis Antetokounmpo will sit for the Bucks as he undergoes the concussion protocol.

Even with that, it still shapes up to be a fun matchup. We get to see if Kyle Lowry can continue his exceptional start to the season, Delon Wright and Fred VanVleet are expected to return to the lineup, and we get our first look at the newly styled Bucks under Mike Budenholzer. It also helps that both teams are trying to get off to a 7-0 start for the first time in franchise history.

Before the game starts, make sure to check out Ben Scott’s preview of tonight’s game, as well as yesterday’s Locked On podcast featuring CBS Sports’ James Herbert.
