Should be a good one tonight at FTX Arena. But of course, Kyle Lowry and Donovan Mitchell are both questionable for tonight’s game. – 11:05 AM

Interested to see if we get the first start of the season for Bobby Portis with the New York frontline of Julius Randle and Mitchell Robinson. Probably has more to do with where his recovery timetable is at with the hamstring but we’ll see.. – 6:33 PM
