    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Fred VanVleet (left shoulder soreness) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game.

    Norman Powell has flourished in his absence over the last two contests. This shouldn't be a long-term injury for VanVleet, but he could miss another game or two.

    Fred VanVleet (left shoulder soreness) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Nuggets.

    The Raptors are rolling into Denver extremely shorthanded. Kyle Lowry will play a ton while Terence Davis, Norman Powell and Patrick McCaw pick up the slack as playmakers off the bench. Powell's the best bet for fantasy production and should be scooped up in all leagues now that he's back from his injury.

    Fred VanVleet (left shoulder soreness) is questionable to face the Nuggets on Sunday.

    VanVleet missed Friday's game and the Raptors are yet to give an official statement on the injury but the questionable tag seems to suggest it is not too serious. Norman Powell slid in as the starter on Friday, scoring 22 points in 36 minutes and should see plenty of time again if VanVleet misses more games with Patrick McCaw and Terence Davis taking care of the backup backcourt duties.

  • Patrick McCaw
    SG, Toronto Raptors

    Patrick McCaw (flu-like symptoms) played 20 minutes in his return after missing the previous three games.

    McCaw missed all six shots from the field to finish with no points, four rebounds, one steal and one turnover. His minutes were expected to trend down with Norman Powell back in the lineup but Fred VanVleet's shoulder issue is now something to monitor. Nontheless, McCaw can be ignored in all formats as he is putting up only around top-250 per game value in 24.0 minutes per game this season.

  • Norman Powell
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    Norman Powell (left ring finger) returned to action on Friday and put up 22 points and three assists in 36 minutes of floor time.

    His return kind of came out of nowhere, but the Raptors are terrible at reporting and disclosing injury information so this is not shocking. The Raptors were thin tonight with only nine players, and Powell benefited from the absence of Fred VanVleet. On a per game basis Norm ranks safely inside the top-100 this season, so he's worth scooping up if you have space or a need. It helps that he's on a really good team as well.

    Fred VanVleet (left shoulder) has been suddenly ruled out for Friday's contest against the Hornets.

    This one we did not see coming. With VanVleet out the Raptors will turn towards Terence Davis to play alongside Kyle Lowry. Davis has been playing well lately, and should be in for a solid night of work for a thin Raptors squad. Norman Powell is also probable on Friday, although it's unclear how big of a role he is ready for. The severity of FVV's injury is unknown, so be sure to check back for a proper diagnosis.

  • Kyle Lowry
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Kyle Lowry led the Raptors to a franchise record, 46-point victory over the Pacers on Sunday, racking up 16 points, 11 assists, seven rebounds, three 3-pointers, five steals and one block in a stellar performance.

    The Raptors raced out to a 34-12 lead after the first quarter and never looked back, and there is little doubt that this roster will follow Lowry's lead on a nightly basis. Lowry has had another terrific season with top-30 production and looks to be healthy and ready to continue on this trajectory. Fred VanVleet was one of the few Raptors to have a down night, but he still went for eight points (3-of-12 FG), two 3-pointers and two steals. Everyone looked great for the Champions in this one.
