The Toronto Raptors will find out just how deadly the combination of RJ Barrett and Immanuel Quickley is against the Sacramento Kings. After starting off their Toronto careers 2-0, they will need to pull off a road upset against De'Aaron Fox and Domantas Sabonis.
After beating a Cleveland Cavaliers squad that was struggling with injuries and a Memphis Grizzlies team that has a worse record than Toronto, the new-look offense needs to go on the road and take on one of the most explosive and high-octane offenses the game has ever seen.
Will Barrett and Quickley be able to team with Scottie Barnes and Pascal Siakam for yet another Raptors win, earning themselves the promised dinner on Darko Rajakovic's dime in the process? Will they falter and have to reset the pizza party clock again?
Christian Koloko Injury Status for tonight’s Raptors vs. Kings game
Koloko remains the only player on the Raptors' injury report who is confirmed to miss this game. The team is in need of his exploits at backup center after trading Precious Achiuwa. While he has progressed to on-court work, his status remains extremely vague.
De'Aaron Fox Injury Status for tonight’s Raptors vs. Kings game
All signs point to Fox being healthy and suiting up for Sacramento. Even though some ailments here and there have kept the skinny Fox out of a handful of games this season, he seems to have recovered well enough to star day in and day out for a very good Kings team.
