Raptor Norm Powell doubtful to face James Harden and the high-octane Rockets in Houston.
The Rockets point guard is averaging 35.8 points and 11.5 assists in his last six games and will be a load for Lowry to handle. The Raptors point guard hasn’t had a single 20-point game this season and is struggling offensively.
Raptor Norm Powell left the TD Garden in Boston on crutches Sunday. While he was walking on his own Monday, he’s listed as doubtful for this game. Anunoby started in his place in the third quarter Sunday. . . . Houston’s dealing quite well with the absence of the injured Chris Paul, rattling off six straight wins and leading the Western Conference with an 11-3 record going into play Monday night. . . . Harden is shooting 44.7 per cent from three-point range in his last six games. . . . Capela had a 20-point, 17-rebound game in Houston’s Sunday win over Indiana.
