Both were initially listed as doubtful before being upgraded to questionable, but they’ll be ready to go in this one. Trent is dealing with a non-COVID illness, while Young hyperextended his left thumb in Game 1. Trent will start alongside Fred VanVleet, OG Anunoby, Pascal Siakam and Precious Achiuwa. Young remains a reserve.
Toronto, will, however, be without rookie sensation Scottie Barnes, who suffered a sprained left ankle late in Game 1. For the Sixers, only Charles Bassey (right shoulder sprain) is sidelined. Jaden Springer is listed on the injury report with a right knee contusion, but is available.
Game 2 of Sixers-Raptors tips off at 7:30 p.m. on TNT. Philadelphia will aim to snag a commanding 2-0 lead and Toronto is searching to steal home-court advantage by knotting the series at one apiece.
