The Toronto Raptors will look to try to gain ground in their fight for a play-in spot when they host the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night in Tampa Bay.

The Raptors enter Tuesday's game sitting a game and a half back of the Chicago Bulls for the 10th in the Eastern Conference - the final play-in spot. Toronto has not missed the postseason since 2013.

Watch the game LIVE at 7:30PM ET / 4:30PM PT on TSN1, TSN3, TSN4, TSN5 and TSN Direct.

Toronto, 3-7 in their last 10, will look to bounce back from a 102-96 loss to the New York Knicks on Sunday. That loss came just one day after a dominant 135-115 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Raptors will be without Kyle Lowry (rest), Fred VanVleet and Jalen Harris, while Paul Watson (health and safety protocols) is questionable.

Atlanta, meanwhile, will try to keep its three-game road win streak intact when they take on Toronto.
