The Toronto Raptors are scheduled to face the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night, but it sounds like the Raptors might once again be without the services of Kawhi Leonard, who has been dealing with a minor ankle injury. The imminent return of Bogdanovic will have a ripple effect on the rest of the rotation, although he's likely to see short bursts of time for the next few games. He contributed 17 points to Monday's 124-111 win at Utah.
The team that is tied with the defending champions Golden State Warriors for the best record in the National Basketball Association and best in the East Toronto Raptors (10-1), are hosting the Sacramento Kings (6-4), who saw a lengthy winning streak end and are looking to bounce back tonight.
Two seconds later, Kyle Korver turned the ball over, and Evan Fournier made one of two free throws to tie the game after he was fouled at the basket with 13 seconds remaining. "That was really impressive by us". He's been forced to go deep into his rotations as of late with the absence of two-way star, Kawhi Leonard, but as of shootaround, the two-time All-Star is expecting to suit up.
He has scored in double figures 11 straight times against the Kings.

It was college night and country two-step lessons were being offered Wednesday at the Borderline, according to its website . One witness saw the suspect tossing smoke bombs in front of the restaurant before watching a security guard get shot.
Once their starters had seized command, the Raptors worked some of their reserve players into the contest. Lowry contributed a 15-point, 12-rebound double-double to a 102-87 win at Sacramento last December. The point guard is certainly finding his shooters and has now posted nine consecutive games with 10 or more assists. He averaged 24.0 points during the winning streak. They are led in scoring by Buddy Hield with 19.7 ppg, adding 5.8 boards per game.
With that said, Utah will also be without its best offensive player in this spot, with Donovan Mitchell absent with an ankle sprain. "I think we go back (to Sacramento) with our heads high and extremely happy with how we've been playing".
Sacramento Kings have a 6-4 record (7-3 against the spread) so far this season and are now tied with the Clippers in the 5place of the West.
The franchise has infamously drafted as poorly as any in the last decade but struck gold with 2017 fifth-overall pick Fox, who scored 20 points against the Raptors and looks like he'll be a mainstay in the Kings' backcourt for years.
