    Serge Ibaka scored 15 points on 7-for-10 shooting, accumulating 11 rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer against the Nets on Friday.

    Ibaka's per-minute production was impressive in this one as he found a way to produce off the bench. Marc Gasol got the start and contributed 11 points, nine rebounds, three 3-pointers and three assists in 27 minutes. Expect head coach Nick Nurse to alternate starting Ibaka and Gasol which will limit their upside.

    Marc Gasol (rest) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice.

    Gasol is getting eased back into the swing of things after a long FIBA World Cup run, but the 34-year-old will be ready for the regular-season opener.

    The Raptors will rest Fred VanVleet, Pascal Siakam, Marc Gasol, Serge Ibaka and Norman Powell for Sunday's preseason game versus the Bulls.

    Kyle Lowry will also sit this one out as his surgically repaired thumb needs a little more time. The reserves will get plenty of run and will be they are all in play as DFS candidates.

    Marc Gasol (rest) will not play in Sunday's preseason game versus the Bulls.

    Gasol made his first preseason appearance on Thursday and played a total of 18 minutes. Gasol played a ton during the FIBA World Cup and his rest is just precautionary to get him ready for the start of the regular season.

    Marc Gasol made his preseason debut on Thursday morning, coming off the bench for six points with six rebounds, three steals and a block in 18 minutes.

    Gasol shot 1-for-4 from the field but we wouldn't put much stock in preseason results from a long-time vet like Big Spain. He's shaping up as a potential value pick in the middle-rounds as Toronto's offseason losses push him up the priority list.

    The Raptors expect Marc Gasol to play in their second game against the Rockets that takes place in Tokyo this Thursday.

    Gasol got the day off on Tuesday but this is expected as he is coming off a loaded summer where he played in the NBA Finals and participated in the FIBA World Cup with his national team. Coach Nick Nurse said that the team will exercise load management with Gasol this season so Serge Ibaka seems like the safer pick in Toronto.

    Marc Gasol (rest) will sit out Tuesday's preseason opener.

    It was initially reported that Gasol would be active, though it looks like he'll just be on the bench to support his teammates. There's no need to push the big man through camp and preseason, especially after he continued playing high-level basketball through the summer for Spain. Serge Ibaka, Pascal Siakam, Chris Boucher and Dewan Hernandez are the beneficiaries if you're playing preseason DFS.

    Kyle Lowry (thumb) will not suit up for Tuesday's preseason matchup with the Rockets in Japan.

    Lowry isn't cleared to return just yet, though it's expected that he will be when the Raptors get back from Tokyo. Marc Gasol, who has been on a load management schedule after a very busy summer, will be active for Toronto's exhibition opener. We're not worried about either veteran when it comes to playing in the regular season, and both make for fine middle-round targets in fantasy drafts.

    Kyle Lowry and Marc Gasol will not play in Thursday's open scrimmage.

    It shouldn't come as much of a surprise that the two oldest players on the Raptors roster will sit out of this open scrimmage. The team already knows what they have in these veterans so they are choosing to give their younger players more run before any meaningful games. Lowry also had surgery in the offseason to repair his left thumb tendon while Gasol played as much basketball as he has in any given year with the team playing into June and his participation in the FIBA World Cup. They should both be ready to go to start the regular season but may continue to miss time this preseason as a precautionary measure.

    Coach Nick Nurse said that the team would use some load management with Marc Gasol this season.

    Gasol will be 35 this year and has barely had any time off after both the Raptors and Spanish national team's long runs. Chris Boucher and Serge Ibaka will make for quality streaming options when this happens.

    Marc Gasol might have to miss the Raptors’ exhibition games in Tokyo on October 8th and 10th.

    Gasol, who is 34 years old, is coming off an NBA championship and World Cup championship with Spain. Nurse said that he will have a patient approach with Gasol, which could damage his fantasy value if his minutes are limited in the regular season. It makes more sense for the Raptors to be cautious with Gasol, so don’t expect him to play at full strength for a couple months.

    According to head coach Nick Nurse, Chris Boucher has improved significantly this offseason.

    Boucher withdrew from Team Canada, but many players did not play in the World Cup so it is no big deal. Nurse noted ball-handling and decision-making as areas where he improved. However, he can work on his finishing around the rim. Unless Marc Gasol gets injured, Boucher will not hold much fantasy value this season.

    Marc Gasol (rest) is expected to have his workload closely monitored during training camp and early on in the season.

    Gasol helped take Spain all of the way during the FIBA World Cup over the summer and handled plenty of wear and tear during the process. The load management will surely impact his value early on, but set him up as a prime second half target.

    PG, Toronto Raptors

    According to Sean Deveney of the Sporting News, teams that have reached out to the Raptors about acquiring Kyle Lowry, Serge Ibaka and Marc Gasol have been turned down.

    The Raptors reportedly don't plan on tanking to rebuild and coming off of a championship season who can blame them. They've still got a competitive roster and if Pascal Siakam is able to take the next step who knows what they can achieve this season.
