*Editor’s Note: Statistics and rankings are current as of this writing, Thursday, March 9th. Numbers may vary slightly entering games on Friday, March 10th.
Unlike their opponent, the Raptors seem to face teams just as starters return and while LeBron will be out, D’Angelo Russell is expected back for this match.
Although most teams want to face the best talents, the big news in Toronto is they’d like to face the best officials. Fred VanVleet finally had enough and didn’t hold his tongue in the post game Wednesday which will cost him $30k.
On the negative side the Raptors offense is holding them back, they score 112.4 points per game ranking 23rd while shooting 45.4% from the field and 33.7% from the perimeter ranking 28th and 27th respectively.
Meanwhile, defensively, the Raptors allow 112.4 points per game ranking seventh best with opponents shooting 49.1% from the field and 37.7% from deep ranking 27th and 29th respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- Otto Porter Jr., SF (OUT for season — foot)
- Will Barton SG (probable— illness)
- Christian Koloko, Dalano Banton, Jeff Dowtin Jr., Ron Harper Jr., and Joe Wieskamp are all on G League assignment
Los Angeles Lakers
With LeBron James out the situation looked bleak and the onus fell upon Anthony Davis to carry the load. AD has delivered but in addition LA has benefited by facing some short handed clubs and newly acquired players transitioning quickly.
LA is 6-2 in their last eight matches with all but one opponent (Mavericks) in that segment missing at least one core starter.
On the more positive side, LA allows opponents to score an average of 117.4 points per game ranking 23rd. Their opponents shoot 46.7% from the field and 34.3% from behind the arc ranking ninth and third respectively.
Another key point, the Lakers score 116.6 points per game which rank eighth-best while shooting 47.8 percent from the field and 33.7 percent from the perimeter ranking 12th and 26th respectively.
To summarize the injury report…
- LeBron James SF (OUT—foot)
- D’Angelo Russell PG (probable— ankle)
- Mo Bamba C (OUT — ankle)

Both teams sit in ninth and trail the team ahead of them by 1.5 games. That equates to each club being desperate for a win so like many of these stretch run games this one should offer playoff level intensity.
And if the refs end up impacting the outcome, pool reporters better be prepared for a lit post game presser.
