The Toronto Raptors announced their 2020-21 second half schedule on Wednesday. The Raptors will play 35 games in the second half, including 19 at home, starting Thursday, March 11 when they host the Atlanta Hawks at Amalie Arena. Toronto announced earlier this month the team will finish the season in Tampa, Florida because of ongoing border restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The second half schedule features four U.S. national television appearances with one game on ESPN and TNT and two on NBATV. The Raptors local television schedule will be released at a later date.

Each team will play 72 games in the 2020-21 season, facing each opponent in its conference three times (42 total games per team) and each opponent in the other conference twice (30 total games per team). In the first half, the Raptors will have played 37 games with 17 at home in Tampa.
