  • Jonas Valanciunas - C - Toronto Raptors

    Jonas Valanciunas (dislocated thumb) will be available to play against the Hawks on Thursday.

    His return will most likely mean Serge Ibaka could see a few of his minutes getting cut while Greg Monroe goes back to being a third-string center. Feel free to scoop him off waiver wires if he's still there. Valanciunas should be owned in all leagues since he makes most out of the minutes (18.8 mpg) given to him by Coach Nick Nurse.

  • Jonas Valanciunas - C - Toronto Raptors

    Jonas Valanciunas (dislocated thumb) is officially listed as questionable to face the Hawks on Thursday.

    Valanciunas is expected to make his return tomorrow, but we won't know for sure until then. He should not be sitting on any waiver wires.

  • Jonas Valanciunas - C - Toronto Raptors

    Tim Bontemps of ESPN is reporting that Jonas Valanciunas is set to return to action on Thursday, a little less than two months after dislocating his thumb.

    JV missed the game against the Sixers on Tuesday but his return is finally imminent. Greg Monroe should go back to his limited role and it remains to be seen whether the Raptors monitor Valanciunas’ minutes upon his return. Just make sure he is owned in all leagues.

  • Jonas Valanciunas - C - Toronto Raptors

    Raptors coach Nick Nurse was holding out hope that Jonas Valanciunas would play on Tuesday against the Sixers but will be held out once again.

    A return looks imminent and the Raptors will likely have JV back on Thursday or Saturday. The Lithuanian center has been sidelined for a few weeks now and owners should absolutely grab him in case he is still floating in the waiver wire.

  • Jonas Valanciunas - C - Toronto Raptors

    Jonas Valanciunas (dislocated thumb) is doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Sixers.

    Valanciunas is expected to return this week, and that happening on Thursday or Saturday against the Hawks or Knicks seemed far more likely than a return tomorrow.

  • Jonas Valanciunas - C - Toronto Raptors

    Jonas Valanciunas (dislocated thumb) could return during the Raptors' current three-game road trip.

    That leaves the door open for JV to come back either Tuesday in Philly, Thursday in Atlanta or Saturday in New York. He should be owned in all leagues at this point and his return will push Greg Monroe out of the rotation. While there may be some kind of minutes limit considering the layoff, it won't take Valanciunas long to hit his typical workload (18.8 mpg) anyway.
