DeMar DeRozan (ankle) & Patrick Patterson (knee) are both questionable Monday vs. the Clippers.
DeRozan has missed seven out of the last eight games but Norman Powell has filled in admirably in his absence. If he continues to sit out Powell and Kyle Lowry will both be carrying the load offensively. Patterson sat out on Sunday against the Nets and the Raptors could play it safe by sitting him out even if he’s ready to go. Pascal Siakam or Lucas Nogueira could draw the start tonight while DeMarre Carroll would also see a boost in usage. Check back for an update.
Update: DeRozan will play on Monday against the Clippers but Patterson will not.
DeRozan will play. Patterson won't.
