Delon Wright (toe) is questionable for Sunday against the Knicks.
Rookie OG Anunoby (ankle) has missed five consecutive games. The Raptors will be exercise caution in bringing him back so it’s likely he misses the game versus the Knicks.
New York Knicks
The Knicks are losers of nine of their last ten games with the lone victory coming versus another lottery bound squad (Orlando Magic). Since franchise star Kristaps Porzingis suffered a season ending ACL injury the team from the Mecca has readjusted their sites to tanking.
Not that players like Enes Kanter, Tim Hardaway Jr and Michael Beasley aren’t invested in winning. It’s simply that the Knicks don’t have enough depth to hang with most teams.
There are rare breakthroughs and the Knicks do perform better at Madison Square Garden, but their once robust home winning percentage has been shaved to 16-14.
As for missing players, Courtney Lee has missed the past few games for personal reasons and is questionable to play Sunday.

Free Toronto Raptors vs. New York Knicks NBA Prediction:
This game has all the makings to be a trap game after the Raptors big win over the Rockets. The early start is also concerning for the East’s best team since they’ll be playing their fourth game this week. Luckily the Knicks stole a game earlier this season, so odds are Dwane Casey will have his squad focused.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Knicks ATS
Just as easily as this could be a trap game it could turn into a blow out with Toronto seeking a return to resting their starters the entire fourth quarter. That’s something the trio of DeRozan, Lowry and Valanciunas (other than 1:45 in one game for Lowry) have done 16 times this season.
