Norman Powell (subluxation of left shoulder) is traveling with the team but will not play against Boston on Saturday.
Coach Nick Nurse noted that Powell is further along than Pascal Siakam or Marc Gasol although no timetable was provided for any of the players. Powell has been a standard league asset this year at top-90 value but is a difficult hold without an IR spot, especially with Nurse saying Powell is "still a ways away." He obtained most of his value with either Fred VanVleet or Kyle Lowry injured at one point or another but Powell may still be a starter at small forward upon his return with OG Anunoby now starting at power forward due to the other injuries.
