    Norman Powell scored 27 points with one rebound, one assist, and two steals in 25 minutes while shooting 6-for-9 on threes in Monday's win over the Hawks.

    Powell was off to a slow start in this one but got hot in the second half. He has scored at least 20 points in every game since he came back from injury on January 12. Fred VanVleet's return simply hasn't hurt his value yet.

    Norman Powell scored 20 points in 25 minutes off the bench in Saturday's win, chipping in three rebounds, four assists and two steals.

    Powell has scored over 20 points in four consecutive games off the bench. Even with the return of teammate Fred VanVleet, Powell has continued to get shots up, averaging 14 field goal attempts a game. He is worth hanging on to in most leagues.

    The Raptors cruised to a 140-111 win over the Wizards on Friday, led by 28 points, five rebounds, two assists, three steals, a block and four 3-pointers from Norman Powell.

    Powell now has 10 games of 20-plus points this season, including three in a row after missing almost a month because of a shoulder dislocation. He's worth starting in all leagues until further notice, and he's playing so well that even the return of Fred VanVleet doesn't figure to affect him all that much.

    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Kyle Lowry went to the locker room with two minutes left in the first half on Friday.

    Lowry limped to the locker room in the first quarter after banging his knee. He was able to return to the game but left for the locker room early in the first half. Fred VanVleet should return soon and would see increased value with Lowry out. Norman Powell and OG Anunoby would also benefit.

  • Fred VanVleet
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Fred VanVleet will miss Friday's matchup against the Wizards but is likely to return from his right hamstring strain on Saturday to face the Wolves.

    With VanVleet out on Friday, the Raptors will offer extra touches to Norman Powell mainly, but its possible Patrick McCaw or Terence Davis go off as well. Powell remains a hold in standard leagues, and it is worth waiting to see how his role develops even when FVV is back in the starting lineup.

  • Fred VanVleet
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Fred VanVleet (right hamstring strain) is officially questionable to play in Friday's game vs. the Wizards.

    VanVleet has missed the past four games with his most current ailment but appears on track for a return in the near future. Expect Norman Powell, Patrick McCaw and Terence Davis to see additional minutes if FVV doesn't return for Friday's game.

    Norman Powell returned a to reserve role on Wednesday, but was unfazed as he kept his foot on the gas with 23 points on 9-of-11 shooting, adding two rebounds and three triples.

    Powell is a points-and-threes guy, delivering on efficient scoring at high volumes at the moment. He's a sell-high option as he won't sustain this scoring binge once Fred VanVleet returns.

  • Fred VanVleet
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Fred VanVleet (right hamstring strain) was on the floor and went through a shooting workout after Tuesday's practice, but there is still no date for his return.

    This is certainly encouraging news for VanVleet, who has been out since January 6th. FVV is the last of the injured for the Raptors after Pascal Siakam and Norman Powell returned on Sunday, while Marc Gasol is expected to return on Wednesday. Norman Powell will see extra usage for however much longer FVV is out.

    Norman Powell (left shoulder subluxation) returned to the lineup on Sunday and was able to put up 20 points on 8-of-14 shooting to go with three rebounds, four assists, a steal and three 3-pointers.

    Powell looked good in his 31 minutes and should be scooped up in all formats with Fred VanVleet still out. There might be some more rust in the games ahead considering his 11-game layoff but Norm's role is safe.

    Norman Powell (left shoulder subluxation) is available to play during Sunday's game versus the Spurs.

    The Raptors will getting both Powell and Pascal Siakam back for tonight's game. Fred VanVleet is expected to miss some time and if Powell is still floating around on waivers he is worth to pick up as he ramps back up to his usual allotment of minutes.

    Norman Powell (left shoulder subluxation) will be available to play against the Spurs on Sunday.

    Powell's recovery took only three weeks after being listed as "out indefinitely" initially. He'll slot into Fred VanVleet's starting SG spot and should be able to hold top-100 vaue until VanVleet returns. It may be slow going during those first few games, however. It's been a busy week for must-add wings on the wire, but Powell makes for a safe, short-term investment over guys like Bruce Brown or Troy Brown Jr.

    The expectation is that Norman Powell will play in Sunday's game against the Spurs after missing an extended period of time with a left shoulder subluxation.

    If Powell does indeed return on Sunday, he would affect the value of some guys who have been given additional opportunity in his absence. Terence Davis, Patrick McCaw, Oshae Brissett and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson could all lose minutes

    Norman Powell (left shoulder subluxation) will not play in Wednesday's game vs. the Hornets.

    Powell will miss his eleventh consecutive game on Wednesday. With Fred VanVleet ruled out as well, the Raptors could have some interesting DFS appeal on Wednesday's nine-game card.

    Norman Powell (left shoulder subluxation) is being listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game.

    Powell has not played since December 18. He appears to be getting closer to a return, but that is unlikely to happen against the Hornets. Patrick McCaw has been seeing plenty of time in his absence.

    Norman Powell (shoulder) is being listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Blazers.

    Powell is getting closer to a return but still needs a little more time. With the news that Fred VanVleet's injury will cost him "a little while," Powell's outlook is looking better for when he does ultimately return. Terence Davis, Patrick McCaw and Matt Thomas will see additional minutes in the meantime.
