Perhaps, says TFC boss Greg Vanney.
The pair missed each of the club's first two wins in the Audi 2019 MLS Cup Playoffs — 5-1 over D.C. United after extra time in the First Round then 2-1 over New York City FC last week — though Gonzalez made the bench for the NYCFC match. Altidore hasn't been in the matchday squad for either.
Altidore isn't yet with the team but will join late after an MRI and could still make the bench, Vanney said via Kristian Jack, while Gonzalez could start.

Jozy Altidore stayed behind to get an MRI but will be flying down to join the team, says he’s not an option to start but is still in consideration for the bench. Omar Gonzalez is healthy enough to start if needed #tfclive
Once Gonzalez made his TFC debut, the club lost just once in 14 games, going 7-1-6. Altidore had 11 goals and seven assists in 22 regular season appearances (18 starts).
