A strained right calf could keep Lucas Nogueira out yet another game and he is listed as questionable for Tuesday against the Mavs.
Nogueira has already missed the last 11 games and Jakob Poeltl will continue to be the main beneficiary in his absence. Poeltl has produced borderline top-100 numbers in just 21.2 minutes per game over the last 13 games. The big man is mainly a blocks specialist, but could be a nice low-level add if that’s a stat you need. However, there is not enough opportunity for playing time in the Raptors frontcourt to allow the 22-year-old to play extended minutes.
