Toronto Raptors guard/forward P.J. Tucker is likely to start for forward/center Serge Ibaka (suspension) against the Miami Heat on Thursday. What It Means: Ibaka is suspended for Thursday's contest for throwing a punch during Tuesday's matchup with the Chicago Bulls. Toronto will go smaller against a Heat team that's thin at the four. Norman Powell should also benefit and Jonas Valanciunas could get more run at center. numberFire's models project Tucker for 7.8 points, 6.1 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.2 3-pointers in 32.1 minutes versus Miami. He's a solid DFS value...

Neither big man connected with their punches, and the only fallout will be suspensions. Ibaka initially instigated the fight by elbowing Lopez in the back, which caused Lopez to react aggressively. When the camera comes back, though, we see a good punch thrown by both players.

It’s Heat check time for the Raptors: Preview, Start time and more

Down Lowry and Ibaka, the Raps are in tough against a hungry and desperate Miami team. Blame it on the Curse of the Bull, the ghost of Chuck Swirsky, the phantom of Doug McDermott or any basketball folklore narrative you’d like, but the Raptors finally beat Chicago on Tuesday and hope to carry this momentum into Miami tonight. It was only appropriate that the Raptors defeated the Bulls in such absurd fashion, battling back from a 15 point deficit in the fourth quarter to finally relinquish their inner Chicago demons. DeMar DeRozan and Jimmy Butler engaged in an old-fashioned game of...
