INJURY TO WATCH
Orlando shooting guard Terrence Ross (knee), center Nikola Vucevic (back and power forward Aaron Gordon (calf) are all probable to play today. Power forward Jonathan Isaac (ankle) and shooting guard Evan Fournier (knee) are out for the season. Small forward Jonathon Simmons (wrist) is out indefinitely. Toronto does not have any injuries listed on its report.
After officially clinching the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs with a 92-73 home win over the Pacers last game, the Raptors can afford to take their foot off the gas pedal. With Gordon and Vucevic expected to play, this contest should be closer than projected.
