On Monday, April 5th, the Washington Wizards meets the Toronto Raptors for the second time this season. In the initial meeting on February 10th, the Raptors won 137-115
Both clubs want to be playing in the postseason but have struggled this season. Toronto was transplanted to Tampa Bay and continues to deal with players being out due to testing positive for COVID-19. Likewise, the Wizards had their own injury struggles and issues with players testing positive to the virus.
Last season, the squads played twice with Toronto winning both contests. The Raptors hold the all-time record having won 55 matches of the 92 played.
Russell Westbrook has done his best with Bradley Beal out but the Wizards arrive in Tampa Bay sporting a three-game losing streak.
The most recent loss occurred versus the Mavericks on Saturday. Westbrook led the way with 26 points, 14 rebounds, and five assists.
Robin Lopez (18), Raul Neto (16), and Davis Bertans (11) were the other double-figure contributors.
Bradley Beal is questionable for Monday as he deals with a hip injury that has caused him to miss the last four games. Rui Hachimura is also questionable with a shoulder injury.
Thomas Bryant (torn ACL) is lost for the season while Daniel Gafford is out with a right ankle injury.
While the Raptors haven’t played anywhere close to what they planned on prior to season start they continue to try to get back on track after facing tons of adversity this season.
In their most recent game, they were missing Kyle Lowry and lost Fred VanVleet but it didn’t stop them from recording a victory with the greatest winning margin in the entire league this season.
That came courtesy of a 130-77 victory versus the Warriors. At one point in the match, the Raptors led by as much as 61 points.
Pascal Siakam led the way with 36 points, seven rebounds, five assists, and two steals, and a block. Gary Trent Jr. continues to mesh perfectly with his new team posting 24 points five rebounds, an assist, steal, and two blocks.
OG Anunoby (21), Malachi Flynn (16), and Chris Boucher (10) were the other double-figure contributors.
Fred VanVleet felt something in his hip and left the match in the second half. His presence on Monday is questionable and may limit the Raptors to just nine available players.
Kyle Lowry (foot), Rodney Hood (hip), Paul Watson Jr. (health and safety protocols), Pat McCaw (knee), and Jalen Harris (hip) are all expected to miss the game.

Free Washington Wizards vs. Toronto Raptors NBA Prediction:
Entering this match the Raptors and Wizards rank 11th and 12th in the East. Neither team is likely keen to be relegated to the play-in tournament but that has to be their initial goal.
Toronto is 1.5 games back while Washington is 3.0 games back of the Bulls who sit in that 10th spot.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Bet the under
If VanVleet can’t go, rookie Flynn will get the start which could favor the Wizards, however, if Beal can’t go that puts extra pressure on Westbrook.
