Raptors' Terrence Ross: Sits out of practice Monday

Ross (knee) sat out of practice again on Monday, but currently expects to be available for the regular season opener on Oct. 26, Josh Lewenberg of TSN Sports reports.

The Raptors have two preseason games remaining on the schedule, although it appears unlikely that Ross will be available to play. The team is hoping to get him back to practice at some point next week, with the expectation that Ross will be at full strength prior to the regular season opener. With Ross sidelined, Norman Powell should continue to run as the Raptors' top wing off the bench.
