The Toronto Raptors will be bolstering their roster — thinning but not yet at the point of postponing games due to COVID-19 — by adding guard Brandon Goodwin and forward Juwan Morgan to 10-day contracts.
The team will be using the NBA’s hardship exemption. The Athletic’s Shams Charania was first to report.

Goodwin arrives from the G League’s Westchester Knicks, where he’s averaged 15.3 points and seven assists this season. Morgan last played for the Maine Celtics, where he posted 12.6 points and 6.8 rebounds in 13 games.
The news comes as the NBA has opened up the floodgates for teams to sign players via hardship with positive COVID cases racking up.
