  • OG Anunoby - F - Toronto Raptors

    OG Anunoby (sprained wrist) is expected to play on Tuesday against Orlando.

    Anunoby missed Saturday's game, which a back-to-back, but that was all he was expected to miss. Expect him back Tuesday, which could steal a few minutes from Pascal Siakam. Anunoby is just a deep league option right now.

  • CJ Miles - F/G - Toronto Raptors

    C.J. Miles (right adductor strain) could play Tuesday against the Magic according to coach Nick Nurse.

    Miles was upgraded to questionable for Saturday's game, but ultimately was still out. Even when he returns, the only fantasy appeal he brings is a deep league 3-point specialist.

  • Kyle Lowry - G - Toronto Raptors

    Kyle Lowry (old) did not practice on Monday, but is expected to be fine going forward.

    When asked if Lowry missed practice as a precaution, coach Nick Nurse replied, "no, old." This is good to hear as Lowry hurt his ankle Saturday night. He was not needed to play heavy minutes in that game due to Raptors blowing out the Bulls. Expect Lowry to be fine going forward.

  • Fred VanVleet - G - Toronto Raptors

    Fred VanVleet scored a season-high 18 points on Saturday night, rounding out his line with four rebounds, four assists, a steal, a block and four 3-pointers while going 7-of-11 from the field.

    VanVleet had been scuffling lately but was excellent tonight in a start for the resting Kawhi Leonard. Delon Wright played 19 minutes off the bench and went for 7-4-4 with two steals, a three and a block. Both players are worth speculative adds in all competitive formats after Kyle Lowry tweaked his ankle tonight.

  • Serge Ibaka - F/C - Toronto Raptors

    Serge Ibaka played only 23 minutes on Saturday but finished with 16 points (6-of-13 shooting), four rebounds, two steals and four blocks.

    Ibaka's having a renaissance season with the Raptors playing him at his natural position. Pascal Siakam continued his breakout with 12 points, eight rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block in 29 minutes. Congratulations are in order if you were able to acquire either player at a discount during draft season.

  • Danny Green - G/F - Toronto Raptors

    Danny Green went 7-of-7 from the field on Saturday, scoring 17 points with four rebounds, three assists, three 3-pointers and a steal.

    Green lit it up in just 26 minutes. He hit a bit of a lull earlier this month but is trending back up, so you should plug him back into all lineups in case you were riding out his mini-slump with Green on the bench. Malachi Richardson took advantage of garbage time and put up nine points, a steal and two threes in 19 minutes off the bench.

  • Jonas Valanciunas - C - Toronto Raptors

    Jonas Valanciunas was only needed for 14 minutes on Saturday night but still posted eight points and nine rebounds against the Bulls.

    Garbage time got him tonight, as Greg Monroe closed things out with seven points and three boards in eight minutes. JV is a strong per-minute producer and there's no need for fantasy owners to worry about his output even as he's settled into a reserve role.

  • Lorenzo Brown - G - Toronto Raptors

    Lorenzo Brown put up 10 points, two assists, three steals and a block in 22 minutes during Saturday's blowout win over the Bulls.

    Brown got some extra run tonight with the Raptors putting this game to bed in the third quarter. He was the G-League MVP a year ago and clearly has game, but he can be ignored outside all but the deepest of fantasy leagues, even with Kyle Lowry tweaking his ankle tonight.

  • Jordan Loyd - G - Toronto Raptors

    Jordan Loyd set all sorts of career-highs in Saturday's cakewalk, netting eight points, four rebounds, one assist and two threes in 12 minutes of action.

    Those are all new personal bests after Loyd put up no stats in his first NBA game, a two-minute stint against the Bucks. Garbage time was kind tonight.

  • Chris Boucher - F - Toronto Raptors

    Chris Boucher played a season-high seven minutes on Saturday, posting two points, three rebounds and a pair of blocks against the Bulls.

    Boucher's been dominant in the G-League between his new 3-point stroke and shot-blocking prowess, and he's showed flashes of it through his two NBA games this year. There's no fantasy implications here but he's a name to file away in dynasty leagues.

  • Kyle Lowry - G - Toronto Raptors

    Kyle Lowry twisted his ankle on Saturday night and is set for a re-evaluation on Sunday, though coach Nick Nurse doesn't believe it's a serious injury.

    There was some concern when Lowry went straight to the locker room but he quickly re-emerged and plopped down on the bench. He's been Toronto's best player all season long and you can expect the Raptors to play it safe here, even if it is just a minor issue. Fred VanVleet and Delon Wright may be in for more work in the short-term.

  • Kyle Lowry - G - Toronto Raptors

    Kyle Lowry hurt his leg in Saturday's game against the Bulls but was able to return to the bench.

    Whenever Lowry goes down, it's always a concern due to his injury history. It's been diagnosed as a sore ankle and is not thought to be serious. Should he miss time, expect more minutes for Fred VanVleet and Delon Wright.

  • OG Anunoby - F - Toronto Raptors

    OG Anunoby (sprained wrist) is only expected to miss one game.

    Anunoby is out tonight on the tail end of a back-to-back and isn't concerned about his injury. He's only an option in deep leagues and dynasty formats.

  • Fred VanVleet - G - Toronto Raptors

    Fred VanVleet will start at shooting guard on Saturday, with Danny Green sliding down to small forward.

    This is all a result of Kawhi Leonard resting. VanVleet has been off lately and Nick Nurse has hinted that his toe injury is still bothering him but he'll have a chance to right the ship in a tasty matchup tonight.

  • OG Anunoby - F - Toronto Raptors

    OG Anunoby will miss Saturday's game because of a sprained right wrist.

    With OG, Kawhi Leonard, Norman Powell and C.J. Miles out and Danny Green and Fred VanVleet less than 100 percent, it'll be interesting to see how the Raptors piece their rotation together tonight. Delon Wright should be in for a nice workload while Malachi Richardson might be called upon outside of garbage time.
