Player AlarmsView All
M. Robinson - C
Robinson (groin) will be available for Thursday's game against the Wizards, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.
After going through practice Wednesday and shootaround Thursday morning, Robinson has been deemed fit to play for the game in London. Given that Robinson has been out for the last month, the Knicks will likely ease him back into the rotation, meaning Luke Kornet is in line to remain the starting center for now, especially with Enes Kanter not making the trip.

C. Miles - SF
Miles (hip) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Suns, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
With Kawhi Leonard (rest) and OG Anunoby (personal) already ruled out, Miles being absent for the third straight game would really leave the Raptors light on depth on the wing. It's unclear what the status of Miles' linger hip issue is, but he will likely end up being a game-time decision against Phoenix.

O. Anunoby - SF
Anunoby (personal) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Suns, Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun reports.
This will be Anunoby's second straight absence due to personal reasons, and there hasn't been any indication of how long he will be out. With Kawhi Leonard (rest) also out Thursday, the Raptors will be fairly light on wing depth, which likely means extended minutes for Normal Powell as a starter against Phoenix.
Added 10:57 am (EST)
K. Lowry - PG
Lowry will not play in Thursday's game against the Suns for rest purposes, Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun reports.
The Raptors have not officially come out and said that they are resting Lowry on back-to-backs, but this is also the first one the point guard has faced since returning from the back injury. Regardless, with Lowry out of the lineup Thursday, Fred VanVleet is expected to step in and serve as the starting point guard while Delon Wright operates as his primary backup.
Added 10:37 am (EST)
K. Leonard - SF
Leonard will not play in Thursday's game against the Suns for rest purposes, Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun reports.
With the Raptors playing the second game of a back-to-back set Thursday, Leonard, per usual, will be rested as the team continues to manages the All-Stars workload. Last time Leonard was rested, the Raptors went with two point guard in their starting lineup, but with Kyle Lowry also being rested Thursday, Normal Powell would be the most likely candidate to join Fred VanVleet in the starting five. Leonard is expected to return to the lineup Saturday against the Grizzlies.

E. Moore - SG
Moore compiled 17 points (7-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, and one assist in 33 minutes during Wednesday's 147-140 loss to the Warriors.
Moore got back on track following two straight sloppy showings. He had combined to score five points on 10 field-goal attempts in the last two contests, but he remains one of the team's top perimeter players, and coach Alvin Gentry clearly hasn't lost faith in Moore despite the fact that he has struggled to recapture the impressive scoring touch he displayed during the first month of 2018-19.

E. Payton - PG
Payton provided seven points (3-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 0-1 FT), 12 assists, five rebounds, and two steals in 29 minutes during Wednesday's 147-140 loss to the Warriors.
Payton distributed a season high assist total, reaching double figures in dimes for the first time since the season opener. Payton has exceeded 29 minutes just once over the last eight games after sitting out for an extended stretch with a broken finger. With that being said, he has been among the most consistent contributors on the squad, and will likely be relied on heavily here in the second half of the season as the team tries desperately to become relevant in the race for the playoffs.
Added 9:35 am (EST)
T. Graham - SF
Graham registered 21 points (7-9 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT) and five rebounds across 32 minutes Wednesday against the Rockets.
Graham posted his most impressive outing of the season, shooting with efficiency in a 145-142 overtime victory in Houston. Although Wednesday's scoring output likely isn't maintainable for the 25-year-old guard, he could see a few more starts with Jared Dudley still on the shelf with a lingering hamstring injury. In Graham's three starts this year, he's averaging 8.7 points and 3.7 rebounds in 29.3 minutes per contest.
