Saturday’s NBA schedule will be stacked, as there will an 11-game slate to enjoy. The lineup will begin with a pair of early after noon games at 3:30 p.m. ET. A second round of contests will tip off between 7:00 and 10 p.m. ET.

The Toronto Raptors will visit the Brooklyn Nets in one of the early games, and both team’s rosters are riddled with injuries. Toronto is missing its star Pascal Siakam, who is dealing with a groin injury, as well as Norman Powell and Marc Gasol. Brooklyn on the other hand hasn’t had Kyrie Irving or Caris LeVert since November and has been carried by the stellar play of Spencer Dinwiddie.

The later games will be kicked off by the Utah Jazz and Orlando Magic. The Jazz have rattled off four straight wins without the injured Mike Conley and have been incorporating the recently acquired Jordan Clarkson into their system. The Magic are looking to find their way without rising two-way star Jonathan Isaac, who will likely miss two months with a knee injury.

Here are the initial lines for tonight’s nine-game slate on DraftKings Sportsbook (Odds and lines subject to change):

Grizzlies @ Clippers (-11) 3:30 p.m. ET
Raptors @ Nets (-1.5, 216.5) 3:30 p.m. ET
