Kristaps Porzingis told reporters that he probably won't play in Toronto today. He's missed four of the Knicks' last eight games due to an Achilles injury and the team is likely to take it slow with its 21-year-old star. Lance Thomas will start this afternoon assuming Porzingis won't play, with Mindagugas Kuzminskas coming off the bench. Kuzminskas scored a career-high 19 points in Thursday's 104-89 victory over the Bulls.

Kyle Lowry scored 20 points with six rebounds, six assists, two steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers in the Raptors' 132-113 win on Friday. DeMarre Carroll also recorded his first double-double as a Raptor in the win, scoring 18 points with 11 rebounds and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes of play.
