The Toronto Raptors will continue onward in their quest to become the NBA's least logical and most chaotic team, following up impressive wins with depressing losses. Will the Chicago Bulls, who hit a rough patch lately, struggle against Toronto or be able to overcome their old play-in foes?

While the Bulls seem like they should be an easier opponent on paper, the Raptors did snatch defeat from the jaws of victory earlier in the year when they let Chicago pull off a miraculous overtime victory. Revenge and better execution late in games will certainly be on Toronto's mind.

The Raptors are consistently inconsistent, following up a performance against Orlando where they looked legally dead with a 132-point showing in a victory against Tyrese Haliburton and the Indiana Pacers. Which Raptors team will show up against Chicago? That is still up in the air.

Precious Achiuwa Injury Status for tonight’s Raptors vs. Bulls game

Achiuwa has been ruled questionable for this game due to a knee injury that kept him out of Toronto's chaotic victory against the Pacers. Achiuwa has played in just nine games for the Raptors this season, and injuries have sadly become a recurring occurrence.

Zach LaVine Injury Status for tonight’s Raptors vs. Bulls game

LaVine has officially been ruled questionable for this game due to an ankle injury. With how thin Chicago can be at times and how much of their offensive firepower is tied up between LaVine, DeMar DeRozan, and Nikola Vucevic, missing one of them could be a killer for Billy Donovan.
