The Toronto Raptors are grappling with uncertainty regarding Dennis Schroder’s availability for Wednesday’s matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks, with the veteran point guard listed as “questionable” due to potential right knee soreness.
Despite not being initially included in Tuesday’s injury report, Schroder, who appeared to suffer an injury during Monday’s game, is now at risk of sitting out his first game of the season.
While he didn’t actively participate in Tuesday’s practice, Schroder, according to Raptors coach Darko Rajakovic, showed signs of improvement and was “feeling better.”
However, during Wednesday’s shootaround, Schroder was observed mainly engaging in conversation with Rajakovic and not actively participating in team activities.
This clouds his status for the upcoming game. Schroder’s potential absence would leave a notable void in Toronto’s rotation, especially given the doubtful status of O.G. Anunoby (finger) and Gary Trent (foot) for Wednesday’s contest.
In the event of a shortage, likely replacements include Chris Boucher, Precious Achiuwa, Otto Porter Jr., Gradey Dick, and potentially Jalen McDaniels or Garrett Temple.
On the Milwaukee Bucks’ side, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jae Crowder and Chris Livingston are confirmed to be out.
