The Toronto Raptors have officially been eliminated from the playoffs, with four games left in the regular season.

With a 27-41 record, the Raptors are 4,5 games behind the Wizards (32-35), who are 10th in the standings and within the play-in tournament zone.

Toronto, which was forced to play in Tampa, Florida, due to Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent restrictions, has been struggling all season and will now miss the postseason for the first time in eight years.

The Raptors will return to Toronto next season and hope they will be able to again become one of the top teams in the East next year.
