  • Fred VanVleet
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Fred VanVleet is out on Thursday night with a sore left shoulder.

    VanVleet was downgraded to doubtful so this is just confirmation that he will in fact sit out. Norman Powell should have another strong outing against a bad Warriors squad.

  • Serge Ibaka

    Serge Ibaka (sore knee) will start on Thursday against the Warriors.

    As expected, Ibaka will hop back into the lineup and should have a strong game with Marc Gasol (hamstring) ruled out. He should be plugged into all fantasy lineups.

  • Serge Ibaka
    PF, Toronto Raptors

    Serge Ibaka (right knee soreness) has been upgraded to probable for Thursday's contest against the Warriors.

    It looks like Ibaka will be good to go for Thursday and should step back into middle-round value. On the flipside, Marc Gasol will not play as he continues to deal with hamstring issues that have held him out since January 28th.

  • Fred VanVleet
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Fred VanVleet (left shoulder) is now listed as doubtful for Thursday's game agains the Warriors.

    Norman Powell should be a beneficiary in this contest assuming VanVleet sits out, so we should get another strong outing from Powell.

  • Marc Gasol
    C, Toronto Raptors

    Marc Gasol (left hamstring tightness) is listed as questionable for Thursday vs. the Warriors.

    Gasol has not played since January 28th and the Raptors will likely take it easy on the veteran center. Gasol is a top-100 player on the season, but fantasy GMs should hold off on putting him in lineups until his minutes ramp up.

  • Serge Ibaka
    PF, Toronto Raptors

    Serge Ibaka (sore right knee) is questionable for Thursday's contest vs. the Warriors.

    Ibaka has missed the past three games but was playing well before his injury. He's a top-80 player over the past two months in 9-cat leagues and has a high floor with top-75 upside ROS.

    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Fred VanVleet (left shoulder) is questionable Thursday vs. the Warriors.

    VanVleet has missed the past three games but appears to be close to a return. Norman Powell will likely return to the bench and will lose value, but should be held in standard leagues.

  • Kyle Lowry
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Kyle Lowry fought to lead the Raptors to a comeback win over the Suns on Tuesday with 28 points (8-of-19 FGs, 8-of-8 FTs), five rebounds, six assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

    The short-handed Raptors mainly gave minutes to six players in this one, and they eventually broke through for the win. Lowry has been roughly as valuable with Fred VanVleet (left shoulder soreness) out as when he's been starting next to him lately. Lowry is defying age and hopefully stays strong down the stretch this season. Norman Powell also carried a big load in his start on Tuesday, going for 26 points, two rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

  • Chris Boucher
    PF, Toronto Raptors

    Chris Boucher filled in for the short-handed Raptors on Tuesday with a 19-point, 15-rebound double-double with two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes vs. the Suns.

    With both Serge Ibaka (right knee soreness) and Marc Gasol (left hamstring tightness) on the shelf, Boucher got some extra run and shot 5-of-12 from the field and 7-of-8 from the line. Boucher has all the tools needed to be a surprise fantasy staple, but he'll need a bigger opportunity to do enough to be rostered in most leagues.

  • Pascal Siakam
    PF, Toronto Raptors

    Pascal Siakam led the Raptors to a 123-114 road win over the Suns with a game-high 33 points on 12-of-20 shooting with seven rebounds, three assists, one steal, two blocks and five 3-pointers in 43 minutes on Tuesday.

    With the Raptors short a pair of big men, Siakam was on the court nearly the entire game. His production has stayed very consistent all season as a top-35 player. While he's a much-improved player over last season, Siakam's efficiency has taken a hit as his volume has increased. That's a spot where we could see him improve in the future.

  • Kyle Lowry
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Kyle Lowry (left eye) took an elbow to the face in Tuesday's game vs. the Suns and was forced to go to the locker room, but will reportedly return to play the rest of the game.

    The injury appears to be to his left eye, but all indications are that he will be fine. He had a towel over his face on the bench before going to the locker room and might have just been shaken up.

  • Fred VanVleet
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Fred VanVleet (left shoulder) won't play on Tuesday in the Raptors' road game against the Suns.

    This will be his third straight game on the shelf, along with teammate Serge Ibaka. Norman Powell recently returned from injury and he fits in FVV's spot in the Raptors' offense nicely. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson will pick up a start tonight with VanVleet and Ibaka out. With the Raptors taking on the Warriors on Thursday, both Ibaka and VanVleet could sit out another game.

  • Serge Ibaka
    PF, Toronto Raptors

    Serge Ibaka (sore right knee) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game vs. the Suns.

    There was some hope that he would be able to suit up on Tuesday but he is going to wind up missing his third game in a row. In his stead, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and especially OG Anunoby will be the big winners in the Raptors' front court. The Raptors take on the Warriors next, on Thursday, so hopefully Ibaka will be able to return to action for that one.

  • Fred VanVleet
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Fred VanVleet (left shoulder soreness) has been downgraded to doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Suns.

    Norman Powell is again in line for extended run after playing 40 minutes against the Nuggets on Sunday. Terence Davis and Patrick McCaw will pick up extra minutes as well. VanVleet isn't expected to be out too long so continue to monitor his status as the week progresses.

  • Serge Ibaka
    PF, Toronto Raptors

    Serge Ibaka (right knee soreness) has been downgraded to doubtful for Tuesday's matchup with the Suns.

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson is likely to be in line for another start and is worth a stream for owners looking for extra rebounds and defensive numbers. Chris Boucher is also in line for additional minutes, while Pascal Siakam gets more run at the five.
