Fresh off of winning the Eastern Conference Player of the Month award, DeMar DeRozan will look to find success against the Grizzlies once again, after posting 26 points, seven rebounds and six assists against them earlier this season.
Thanks to a recent skid, the Spurs have relinquished the “best home team” title to the Raptors, who have pushed their league best home record to 20-4 on the year, and will be looking for win number 21 today.
They’ll have a much higher chance of getting a victory with Fred VanVleet, who missed the Washington contest due to the birth of his daughter, back with the team. In his return against Portland he scored 16 points and made 3-of-5 threes in the blowout victory.
C.J. Miles, who was previously questionable to play this afternoon will be suiting up for Toronto.
Memphis, in their continued rebuild, will be without guard Tyreke Evans for the fifth time in six games as the team holds him out of games while they search for a buyer for his services on the trade market.
