The Raptors will be missing a third player for tonight's road game against the Washington Wizards after forward Jamario Moon returned to Toronto.

Moon's wife Tamara is expecting their first child. The Raptors are already without centre Jermaine O'Neal (knee) and point guard Jose Calderon (hamstring). Coach Jay Triano could not say if the two injured Raptors would be available for Friday night's home game versus the Memphis Grizzlies.

Without Moon at small forward, Triano will likely go with either Joey Graham or Jason Kapono against the Wizards. Toronto should have an advantage tonight after taking Tuesday off while Washington was in Orlando losing to the Magic.

"Hopefully we're well rested and win the small things," Triano said. "We shot 54% (in a 10-point loss to Milwaukee on Monday), but didn't do the small things, boxing out, middle penetration, the things we had been doing well.

"There were a couple of times (the Bucks) dove on the floor for loose balls and we just reached."
