The Toronto Raptors will be short-handed for a second straight game, as they host the Los Angeles Lakers on Tuesday night.

More specifically, the Raptors (20-30) will be without six players for the clash with the Lakers.

Fred VanVleet (hip), Kyle Lowry (foot), Paul Watson (protocols), Rodney Hood (hip), Patrick McCaw (knee) and Jalen Harris (hip) are all out for the contest.

For their part, the Lakers (31-19) are also dealing with injuries, with three players out and two questionable for the game.

Toronto has seen its season by full of ups and down sofa, with the team currently being just outside the play-in places (11th in the East). However, most online casinos in New Zealand and worldwide are still considering the Raptors a force to be reckoned with in the East, if they make it to the playoffs.

Upon the return of all injured players in the coming games, Toronto wants to make a final push and enter the playoff zone. Despite their struggles, the 2019 NBA champions still have a chance to make it to the postseason and defy the betting odds, with several betting websites, which also offer real money online casinos games, avoiding to place them among the odds-on favorites.
