TORONTO (AP) The slumping Toronto Raptors will field just eight healthy players against the visiting Brooklyn Nets.

Andrea Bargnani, Kyle Lowry, Linas Kleiza, Alan Anderson and Landry Fields are all injured. Amir Johnson is suspended for Wednesday night's game.

Coach Dwane Casey expects to have just eight healthy players. It could be nine if they can get Quincy Acy back from the Bakersfield Jam of the NBA D-League in time.

The 4-18 Raptors are coming off five straight losses on the road. The 11-9 Nets lost 100-97 to the Knicks on Tuesday night.
