Delon Wright is shutting it down early for a second night in a row due to a sprained big toe on his right foot.
The Raptors point guard checked out late in the fourth on Tuesday and was limping a bit after the game but gave it a go Wednesday. He played in the first half but won’t return for the second, the team announced at halftime.
This leaves Toronto a little thin, as Serge Ibaka was ejected in the second quarter. Fred VanVleet is the only point guard on the bench now – Lorenzo Brown is not with the team – and Norman Powell is starting at small forward. This should mean minutes for just about everyone, including Malcolm Miller and/or Nigel Hayes in the second half.
There likely won’t be an update on Wright until Friday, as the team is off tomorrow following the back-to-back.
