Elfrid Payton (ankle) has been ruled out of Monday's game against the Raptors.
Alvin Gentry said earlier today that Payton wasn't likely to play so this isn't surprising. Look for Jrue Holiday to hold it down at point guard with Wesley Johnson sliding into the starting five on the wing. It's disappointing considering the optimism surrounding a potential return late last week, but Payton will remain on the sidelines without a concrete timetable.
