Let’s not sugarcoat it here: the Raptors need a win in the worst way right now. The losses over the past two weeks for Toronto, now totalling six in a row, make complete sense. Indeed, it’s hard to muster a winning attitude, let alone winning play, when it feels like half your teammates and coaches are out (and at least one has a contagious, energy-sapping virus). In truth, it straight up sucks.
Today’s clean injury report suggests the Raptors are whole again, which is great news. But we also know it will take more time for them to get back to their winning ways.
