  • Norman Powell

    Norman Powell headed to the locker room on Monday after colliding with OG Anunoby under the basket.

    Powell has been on a tear the past five games, posting first-round value in 9-cat leagues while averaging 28 points per game. He was just named Eastern Conference Player of the Week and hopefully he is able to return. If Powell is ruled out he could be considered expendable in a must-win scenario with the Raptors only playing one more game this week.

  • Marc Gasol

    Marc Gasol (left hamstring tightness/injury management) will miss Monday's game vs. the Jazz.

    Gasol returned to action in the Raptors' last game and played 16 minutes. The team is working him along slowly as they hope to have a healthy squad come playoff time. Serge Ibaka will see an increase in his value with Gasol sidelined. With the way the Raptors are currently managing Gasol's hamstring, it is possible that he will not be fantasy relevant for the remainder of the season.

  • Fred VanVleet

    Fred VanVleet will remain out for Monday's tilt vs. the Jazz as he continues to nurse a sore left shoulder.

    VanVleet will miss his sixth consecutive game on Monday. Norman Powell has seen his value surge in Fred's absence and he should continued to be leaned on in Monday's matchup. VanVleet will have plenty of additional time to rest up as the Raptors won't play again until Saturday. At this time, consider VanVleet questionable for that matchup.

  • Marc Gasol
    C, Toronto Raptors

    Marc Gasol (left hamstring tightness) returned to action on Sunday in a win over the Kings and put up three points in 16 minutes.

    Gasol was on a minutes restriction and was clearly shaking off the rust as he shot just 1-of-5 from the field, so it may take some time for him to jump back into the standard league radar. Serge Ibaka put up 15 points, 10 rebounds and five assists in 36 minutes, but he might take a hit as Gasol's minutes increase.

  • Kyle Lowry
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Kyle Lowry put up 30 points on 10-of-15 shooting with eight assists in 36 minutes of action in a 118-113 win over the Kings on Sunday.

    Lowry knocked down six triples and added five rebounds and three steals to the stat sheet. He remains a consistent early-round option as he sits inside top-30 value on the season.

  • Norman Powell
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    Norman Powell followed up his career night on Friday with a 31-point performance on Sunday in a win over the Kings.

    Powell shot 11-of-21 from the field and 6-of-12 from beyond the arc. He also added two rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block to the stat sheet. He should be picked up and started in all formats as he has been a top-60 option in 9-cat leagues this season.

  • Marc Gasol
    C, Toronto Raptors

    Marc Gasol is ready to return from his left hamstring tightness and will be on a minutes limit on Sunday against the Kings.

    Gasol was right around the top-100 mark before succumbing to the injury, and he should still carry some standard league value once his workload ramps back up to usual levels. He's far away from being the early-round talent he once was, but he won't hurt you in any area, and he is a center that provides helpful boosts in 3-pointers and assists. With Gasol's return, Serge Ibaka is about to take a sizeable hit, but should still be able to maintain value in 12-team formats.

  • Fred VanVleet
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Fred VanVleet will miss Sunday's matchup against the Kings due to left shoulder soreness.

    The sore shoulder has been a pain in the you know what for FVV. He has been questionable for the last few games, and hopefully, he returns at the start of next week completely healthy. Norman Powell will continue to get plenty of shots coming his way.

  • Fred VanVleet
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Fred VanVleet (left shoulder soreness) is questionable for Sunday's game.

    FVV has missed a hanful of games due to this sore shoulder. The questionable tag is encouraging and a return to action can be expected very soon.

  • Marc Gasol
    C, Toronto Raptors

    Marc Gasol (left hamstring tightness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game.

    Gasol will get a chance to test his hamstring pre-game and will be a GTD. It's a step in the right direction, signalling he's nearing a return, making him a solid pickup in all formats.

  • Norman Powell
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    Norman Powell led the Raptors to a 121-113 win with a career-high 37 points to go with three boards, two assists, three steals and four triples.

    Okay if you haven't jumped on the Powell bandwagon, you should now. Stop reading and check if he's available in any of your leagues and place a claim now. Whenever he's on the floor, good things happen for the Raptors offense and he's been a top-80 player on the year and a top-40 option over the last two months.

  • Kyle Lowry
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Kyle Lowry double-doubled in Thursday's win over the Warriors with 26 points and 10 assists to go with five boards, two steals and four triples.

    Lowry had another awesome night for the Raptors and has looked great since returning from his injury. As long as he's healthy he's a top-40 player.

  • Pascal Siakam
    PF, Toronto Raptors

    Pascal Siakam struggled on offense in Thursday's win, scoring 17 points on 5-of-17 shooting to go with five rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block.

    Siakam had trouble getting to his usual spots on offense tonight, so the rest of the Raptors picked up the slack like they usually do. It was just a bad offensive night for a usually stellar player. He did deliver a big and-one bucket late in the fourth to help put the game away, but the 0-for-7 mark from deep really hurt his line tonight.

  • OG Anunoby
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    OG Anunoby scored 14 points on 5-of-7 shooting to go with four rebounds, three steals and three triples on Thursday.

    Anunoby was on a roll while Serge Ibaka (knee) was out and it's good to see him continue his strong play with him back in the lineup. He should be owned in all leagues based on his defensive potential alone, but he's also averaged 13.9 points and 1.4 triples over his last 10 games.

  • Serge Ibaka
    PF, Toronto Raptors

    Serge Ibaka double-doubled on Thursday with 13 points and 13 rebounds to go with three assists, a block and a triple.

    Ibaka made his return and his presence was immediately felt. The Raptors have been without him and Marc Gasol (hamstring) for a few games but with Ibaka back, he should be producing a mid-round value and in all lineups.
