  • Raptors' Kawhi Leonard dealing with sore knee, out vs. Wizards

Leonard, who is suffering from left knee soreness, had played the last two games after sitting out a win in Atlanta on February 7 to rest his knee.

"He's a good player", said head coach Nick Nurse, according to Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun.

A sore left knee kept Leonard on the sidelines for the second time in the last four games.

Veteran guard Jeremy Lin has officially signed with the Toronto Raptors, the team announced.

Toronto will be Lin's eighth stop during his nine-year National Basketball Association career.

Lin, 30, arrived just hours before tip-off and took part in a Raptors walkthrough.

The Wizards were without Dwight Howard (back surgery), John Wall (left Achilles tendon tear) and Troy Brown Jr.

Toronto came into the game having won five in a row with a record 42 victories before the all-star break.
