At 46-18 the Raptors had already clinched their playoff spot prior to the league's hiatus. The Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics were the only other teams in the East to secure a playoff berth. However, with only eight games remaining, the Heat, Pacers and 76ers have now also officially clinched a playoff berth in the Eastern Conference.

The Brooklyn Nets, Orlando Magic and Washington Wizards will battle for the final two remaining playoff spots.

Washington Wizards (9) 24 40 .375 28.5 115.6 119.7

The Raptors are 6.5 games back of the Bucks for the first overall seed in the East which will be tough to make up just eight games. However, they still have plenty to play for with the Celtics just 3.0 games back of them for the two seed.

The Raptors began their travel to Florida on June 22nd in preparation for the re-start of the season in the Orlando bubble. They'll stay in Fort Myers until they enter the NBA Campus at Disney.

The NBAPA and NBA finalized a "comprehensive plan" to begin play on July 30th at Walt Disney World Resort.

The Arena, the Field House and Visa Athletic Center at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex will serve as the venues for every remaining game this season. There will be no fans in attendance in an effort to limit risks related to the coronavirus pandemic.
