the half.

Toronto ral­lied to tie the game 46-46 with 3:30 left in the half on Bargnani’s lay-up and free throw. The Rap­tors went ahead 49-48 on Jack’s three-pointer with 2:57 left and led 57-56 at the half led by Wright’s 15 points that in­cluded a three-pointer with 15.9 sec­onds left.

The Rap­tors con­tin­ued to be hit by in­jury and ill­ness as they tried to shake off a poor de­fen­sive ef­fort in los­ing 130-115 to the Pac­ers at In­di­ana on Tues­day, end­ing a five-game winning string.

Jack de­vel­oped an ill­ness be­fore Wed­nes­day’s game and was in the start­ing lineup de­spite of a sore throat and a virus.

The Rap­tors were without Jose Calderon, who suf­fered a sprained right an­kle in Tues­day’s loss af­ter step­ping on Jack’s foot. He was sched­uled to have a mag­netic res­o­nance imag­ing pro­ce­dure on Wed­nes­day night.

DeMar DeRozan missed his fifth con­sec­u­tive game with a sprained right an­kle.

Hedo Turkoglu did not start for the sec­ond game in a row on Wed­nes­day af­ter suf­fer­ing a small, non-dis­placed frac­ture of the or­bital bone be­low the right eye when he took an el­bow from In­di­ana’s Mike Dun­leavy while driv­ing to the bas­ket one minute into the victory over the Pac­ers at the Air Canada Cen­tre on Sun­day.

Turkoglu has been fit­ted for a mask to pro­tect the in­jury and it is a mat­ter of be­com­ing comfortable wear­ing it. Doc­tors ad­vised him against play­ing without the mask.
