Suns small forward Kevin Durant (foot) and shooting guard Grayson Allen (illness) are both listed as questionable for their team’s road tilt with the Raptors. Durant is second in the NBA in scoring with 31.4 points per game this year.
Toronto Raptors Daily Fantasy Spin
Raptors small forward Scottie Barnes did a little bit of everything in his team’s 115-103 road loss to the Nets on Tuesday night. In that game, Barnes recorded a complete stat line of 17 points, 11 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 steals, and 3 made three-pointers.
Toronto power forward Chris Boucher provided a spark in his 12 minutes off the bench on Tuesday. The big man out of Oregon scored 13 points on 5 of 7 shooting from the field and 3 of 4 shooting from beyond the arc.

Suns vs. Raptors NBA Prediction:
It’s worth monitoring the injury status of the Suns’ Kevin Durant all the way up to game time. He’s averaging over 30 points per game this season. On the flip side, Phoenix is 2-0 straight up and 2-0 against the spread in their last two games without Durant. Devin Booker has averaged 34 points per game in the last two contests. He should provide Phoenix with enough scoring punch to tip the scales in the Suns’ favor regardless of whether Durant ultimately plays or not.
Toronto has had trouble scoring all season, as the Raptors are 22nd in points scored per game and 24th in offensive efficiency in 2023. Toronto is only shooting 34.3% on three-pointers this season, a figure that ranks 24th in the league. Conversely, Phoenix is second in the NBA in three-point percentage at 39.3% this season, and I could see that disparity being the difference in this game. I’m on the Suns on the road on Wednesday night.
