Raptors fans could be forced to wait to see their team step onto their homecourt. 

According to Yahoo Sports, Raptors home games are likely to take place in Louisville, Kentucky next year due to Ontario's COVID-19 restrictions.

An ongoing ban on the Canada-U.S. border currently makes it difficult for the team to host games at Scotiabank Arena in 2021.

2021

Season that the Raptors might play in the U.S. 

If the federal government continues to block U.S. residents from entering Canada, the NBA will have no choice but to adjust accordingly. 

The Raptors will hardly be the first sports team forced out of the 6ix by the pandemic. 

The Toronto Blue Jays and Toronto FC both hosted their home games in U.S. states in 2020. 

The news will likely come as a devastating blow to die-hard Raptors fans, who were also unable to support their team during the 2019-2020 playoff season. 

The team, alongside others in the league, was forced to enter an NBA social bubble in Orlando, Florida and play to an empty stadium this year.
