The Raptors continue to deal with various injuries.

While Jonas Valanciunas (thumb) is sidelined for a significant amount of time, various reports indicate Kyle Lowry (back/thigh) and Serge Ibaka (knee) will be sidelined for the second consecutive game Friday night vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers. In addition to the aforementioned three is a new name to the injury report - Danny Green (knee) will miss his first game of the season as well.

In the absence of four starters, the Raptors will have to go deeper in their rotation, meaning Lorenzo Brown, C.J. Miles, Malachi Richardson, Greg Monroe and Chris Boucher will see more time.

Various reports indicate Toronto will go with a starting lineup of Fred VanVleet, Delon Wright, Kawhi Leonard, OG Anunoby and Pascal Siakam, who spent some time at the centre position in Wednesday night's win over Indiana.
