Raptors' Yuta Watanabe (ankle) ruled out Thursday

Toronto Raptors shooting guard Yuta Watanabe (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Washington Wizards.

What It Means:

Watanabe was originally listed as probable and then downgraded to questionable. He drew a start last game with Kyle Lowry (back) and OG Anunoby (injury recovery) both out. Lowry is expected to return Thursday, so Watanabe was likely going to see a reduced role off the bench anyway.

The Wizards rank 25th against shooting guards this season per 48 minutes, according to numberFire's DvP tool.
