G - TOR
Raptors guard Patrick McCaw (knee surgery) has been upgraded to probable for Friday's matchup against the Timberwolves.
It is encouraging to see McCaw have the probable designation ahead of Friday evening's matchup. This will be his 2020-2021 season debut if McCaw suits up. It is worth monitoring what expected workload he will get, if any, tonight as we near tip-off.
Patrick McCaw will be leaving the bubble to receive treatment on the benign mass that he has on his knee. McCaw is expected to have a surgical procedure to clean up his knee, according to head coach Nick Nurse.
McCaw was unable to play in any of the Raptors' games during the restart. The Raptors will not be able to replace McCaw on their roster, so they will be a man short for the rest of the season. McCaw did not have a huge role off the bench, but his minutes will probably be distributed between Terence Davis II and Matt Thomas. The Raptors' rotation should not look much different with McCaw out.
Patrick McCaw (knee) will not play against the Orlando Magic on Wednesday.
McCaw has yet to play in the NBA Restart due to a left knee injury, and there is no timetable for his return to the rotation. In the meantime, expect Norman Powell to continue getting his minutes.
Raptors G Patrick McCaw has been ruled out of Monday’s game against the Heat with left knee soreness.
McCaw hasn’t played in a game since March 9 and will continue to sit for the foreseeable future. Toronto has been keeping their rotation pretty tight, and Norman Powell will continue to be the biggest beneficiary of McCaw’s extended absence.
Raptors guard Patrick McCaw has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Lakers due to left knee soreness.
McCaw was doubtful coming in to Saturday so this doesn't come as much surprise. Look for Norman Powell to see extended run while Matt Thomas could see some minutes off the bench. The four-year pro has averaged 4.6 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.1 assists across 37 games for the Raptors this season.
