TORONTO -- The Toronto Raptors will make a gesture of solidarity with the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night over the Donald Sterling controversy.

Raptors all-star DeMar DeRozan wouldn't reveal what the team is planning for the silent protest.

The Raptors will join a chorus of protests when they play Brooklyn in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference quarter-final at Air Canada Centre.

On Monday night, the Miami Heat ran out of the tunnel in their warmups, huddled at centre court and tossed their white jerseys to the ground.

They wore their red warmup shirts inside out, hiding the team logo.

Sterling, the longtime Clippers owner, has been banned for life by the NBA in response to racist comments he made in a recorded conversation.
