Raptors head coach Dwane Casey dropped clues that Jonas Valanciunas would remain in the starting lineup, according to Blake Murphy.
This comes after rumors surfaced that Serge Ibaka could perhaps start at center for the Raptors. Valanciunas has struggled to maintain minutes above the mid-20’s and has his fantasy upside suffers for that reason. With multiple players pressing Valaciunas for minutes andthe game becoming more small ball oriented, it is hard to see him breaking the 30 minute threshold anytime soon, capping his value. Still, Valanciunas is a center who can produce mid-late round value without hurting your field goal percentage.
