Toronto’s midseason acquisition, P.J. Tucker was sent home early from practice on Friday but we fully expect him to play in Saturday’s Game 1 matchup against the Bucks.
P.J. Tucker will end one of the longest playoff droughts in the NBA by making his first playoff appearance tomorrow. DeMarre Carroll will likely get the start but the Raptors plan to rely heavily on Tucker to try and guard Giannis Antetokounmpo. It is unlikely though that anyone will be able to stop the first player in NBA history to finish in the top 20 in points, assists, rebounds, blocks and steals.
Casey says Tucker "will be good to go tomorrow"
