Precious Achiuwa is the only other Raptors player to be in protocol this season.
The Raptors had a game last Thursday postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak with the Chicago Bulls.
Capacity at Scotiabank Arena has been reduced to 50%, and MLSE is implementing an “Operation Mask Up (or out)” policy that will require all attendees to “strictly adhere to all mask-wearing protocols or risk ejection from the building.” Food and drink sales have also been banned at the arena.
Important information for those attending tonight’s @Raptors game: Masks must be worn at all times when not actively eating or drinking. Only one warning will be issued. A second offense will result in ejection from the venue.
