Toronto Raptors starting centre Marc Gasol expects to return from a left hamstring injury tomorrow night in Oklahoma City against the Thunder.

Gasol was hurt Dec. 18 in Detroit, the same night teammates Pascal Siakam (groin) and Norman Powell (shoulder) suffered injuries.

Siakam and Powell both returned Sunday for the Raptors’ loss against the San Antonio Spurs.
