TORONTO: LAST SEASON: 58-24, won NBA Finals.
COACH: Nick Nurse (second season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Kyle Lowry (14.2 ppg, 8.7 apg), G Norman Powell (8.6 ppg), F OG Anunoby (7.0 ppg), F Pascal Siakam (16.9 ppg), C Marc Gasol (15.7 ppg, 8.6 rpg).
KEY LOSSES: F Kawhi Leonard, G Danny Green
KEY ADDITIONS: F Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, F Stanley Johnson, G Matt Thomas
PLAYERS TO WATCH: A runaway winner of the NBA's Most Improved Player Award last season, Siakam doesn't look likely to rest on his laurels. Nurse said he's seen more maturity and calmness in Siakam this fall, something new for a player whose game was previously all about speed and energy. Thomas has never played in the NBA, but the former Iowa State star shot 48.1% (116 for 241) from 3-point range in helping Spain's Valencia Basket capture the 2019 EuroCup title.
OUTLOOK: The defending champions lost their best player when Leonard left for the Clippers, and took another hit when Green signed with the Lakers. While those departures may have dimmed Toronto's hopes of repeating, the Raptors aren't lottery-bound either. Lowry has made five straight All-Star teams, Gasol is a defensive force in the paint, and there's talent on the bench in guard Fred VanVleet and big man Serge Ibaka. Expect the Raptors to earn a top-four seed in a balanced Eastern Conference.

Because of this important information, no power rating or computer score edges are posted for this game.

PHILADELPHIA: LAST SEASON: 51-31, lost in Eastern Conference semis
COACH: Brett Brown (seventh season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: C Joel Embiid (27.5 ppg, 13.6 rpg), F Tobias Harris (18.2 ppg), F Al Horford (13.6), G Josh Richardson (16 ppg), G Ben Simmons (16.9 ppg, 7.7 apg).
KEY LOSSES: G JJ Redick, G Jimmy Butler
KEY ADDITIONS: G Josh Richardson, F Al Horford, F Matisse Thybulle
PLAYERS TO WATCH: The 76ers will go as far as Simmons and Embiid will take them. Both All-Stars are locked in for years with long-term deals and enter the season as serious MVP candidates. But if even one goes down with a serious injury, the Sixers will be in trouble. Embiid has never played more than 64 games in a season and the Sixers are serious about trying to limit his workload even more during the regular season to keep him fresh for the playoffs.
OUTLOOK: From tanking to title contention, the Sixers believe they are good enough to win the Eastern Conference, and make a run at an NBA championship. The Sixers were knocked out of the Eastern Conference semifinals for the second straight season but believed signing Horford away from fellow contender Boston can help push them over the top.
Sixers to meet Raptors with focus on resting stars

The staggering Philadelphia 76ers face the unenviable task of dealing with the second half of a back-to-back when they meet the Toronto Raptors in the NBA bubble on Wednesday night.

The 76ers prioritized long-term health over potential short-term gain when they sat regulars Joel Embiid, Tobias Harris, Al Horford and Josh Richardson in a 130-117 loss to Phoenix on Tuesday afternoon.

It's possible all four -- along with Ben Simmons, already deemed out for the season following knee surgery -- will sit again Wednesday, and perhaps even in Friday's regular-season finale against Houston, virtually assuring the 76ers (42-29) will land in the sixth position in the final Eastern Conference standings.

That would create a first-round playoff pairing with third-seeded Boston.

Moving out of that matchup remains a possibility for Philadelphia, which has won three of six in Florida and begins play Wednesday two games behind fourth-seeded Miami (44-27) and one back of fifth-seeded Indiana (43-28).

Moving from sixth to fifth in the Eastern race would mean facing either the Heat or Pacers in the first round.

Miami and Indiana, who go head-to-head on Friday, also play Wednesday. The Heat will take on Oklahoma City, while the Pacers square off with Houston.

The 76ers' biggest concern is Embiid, who suffered an ankle injury Sunday against Portland.

76ers coach Brett Brown indicated before Tuesday's game that he was hopeful of getting Embiid back by Friday's regular-season finale. Without flat-out saying it, Brown appeared to indicate that Tuesday and Wednesday were out of the question.

And sure enough, Embiid sat Tuesday.

"I do expect him to," Brown told the media of a possible Friday return. "That's just one man's opinion. I do believe it would be good for him to play before the playoffs begin."

The 76ers and Raptors have met three times previously with an obvious conclusion: Even a little Embiid is better than none at all.

The All-Star center was held scoreless once and sat out on a second occasion when Philadelphia lost twice at Toronto.

He had only 10 points and eight rebounds in the lone home matchup, but it was enough to help get the 76ers over the top in a 110-104 win in December.

Fred VanVleet contributed 24 and 22 points to the Toronto home wins.

The Raptors (51-19) have won five of six since the restart to lock down the No. 2 seed in the East and a first-round matchup with seventh-seeded Brooklyn.

Like the 76ers, the Raptors rested some of their key players in their most recent contest, a 114-106 win over the top team in the East, Milwaukee. Chris Boucher paced Toronto with 25 points in 29 minutes off the bench.

If Wednesday's game turns into another duel of backups, Boucher noted he and his teammates are ready.

"Everybody on this team is doing the same thing," he noted to reporters after Monday's win. "Just being ready, and when the opportunity is there ... play hard and show what you're capable of doing."

The Raptors close out bubble play Friday against Denver.
