TORONTO – The Toronto Raptors say the club’s broadcast duo of Matt Devlin and Jack Armstrong will stay away from the team “for a period of time” due to possible exposure to COVID-19.

According to a team statement, Devlin and Armstrong will miss at least two games because they may have been in contact with a person outside the organization who has since tested positive for COVID-19.
