The Raptors are reportedly dealing with several positive COVID-19 tests and still undergoing contract tracing after Sunday's game against the Chicago Bulls was postponed as Toronto couldn't field the minimum eight players necessary. It was unclear which players tested positive and how many personnel were exposed to the virus.

Pascal Siakam was previously ruled out for the duration of the week after missing the team's Feb. 26 win against the Houston Rockets. Six coaches, including head coach Nick Nurse, have been in isolation and assistant Sergio Scariolo got his first head coaching victory in Nurse's absence on Friday.
