Injuries are piling up for the Toronto Raptors early in the seaason. All-Star forward Pascal Siakam is out with an adductor strain, and fellow big man Precious Achiuwa recently went down with a serious ankle issue as well.

Now wing Gary Trent Jr. has joined the injured list.

Trent is out against the Detroit Pistons due to right hip soreness. He's the third starter missing for Toronto in this game, as Fred VanVleet (illness) also won't suit up for this contest.

The Raptors' depth is certainly being tested in November. Reserve players Khem Birch and Justin Champagnie have also missed time recently, putting extra pressure on the team's healthy players to step up.

Toronto has clearly been affected by injuries early on this year, going just 7-7 so far, including a 2-3 record without Siakam.

Monday provides a chance for the Raptors to get back above .500, though, and break their two-game losing streak. FanDuel Sportsbook's NBA odds peg Toronto as a 4.5-point favorite against the Pistons, who will be without star guard Cade Cunningham due to a shin issue.
