Rasheed Wallace is still out, and he may miss Sunday against the Grizzlies, according to A. Sherrod Blakely of Booth Newspapers. But that shouldn’t matter too much today.
The Raptors are 2-8 since the Jermaine O’Neal-Shawn Marion trade, and they’ve lost six in a row.
And in its last nine games, Toronto has allowed 113 points per game.
