The fantasy basketball season is set to kick off Tuesday night, when the defending champion Toronto Raptors host the New Orleans Pelicans. The opening night double-header will be followed by the battle for Los Angeles, as the Lakers and Clippers square off at the Staples Center.

The Raptors will be without reigning Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard this season, while the Pelicans will be missing top draft pick Zion Williamson for a few weeks, as he recovers from a knee injury. The Clippers will also be shorthanded opening night, as newly acquired forward Paul George will miss multiple games recovering from offseason shoulder injuries.
