Those Raptors will be without Kyle Lowry due to a thumb injury, something broken by Rachel Nichols of ESPN.
A specialist has diagnosed Toronto’s Kyle Lowry with a fracture of the distal phalanx of his left thumb – he’ll be reevaluated in two weeks. One of the nights he’ll miss will be Monday’s game vs Kawhi Leonard’s Clippers.

That is the bone at the tip of the thumb, above the joint, and it is on Lowry’s non-shooting hand.
Lowry remains one of the catalysts of the Raptors offense, averaging 21.8 points and 6.5 rebounds a game. The Raptors have the sixth-best offense in the NBA so far this season, but that could now see a dip.
