ORLANDO, Fla. — The Toronto Raptors faced the Orlando Magic without DeMar DeRozan on Tuesday.
The Raptors said the all-star guard was suffering from a left thigh contusion. Backup guard Fred VanVleet sat out a second straight game with a right hand contusion.
DeRozan scored 24 points in Toronto's 132-125 loss Sunday to Oklahoma City, which snapped the Raptors' franchise record-tying win streak at 11. After the game, DeRozan was vocal in his criticism of the officials.
East-leading Toronto, in the midst of a busy stretch of the schedule, plays at Cleveland on Wednesday.
