    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.

    SF, Toronto Raptors

    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

    Patrick McCaw collected a double-double on Wednesday, ending with 13 points, five boards, 11 assists and a steal.

    McCaw has benefited nicely from the injuries to Norman Powell and now Fred VanVleet. He should continue to see his share of minutes until Powell is back. McCaw is an attractive DFS/deep-league option until that happens

  • Norman Powell
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    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.

    PG, Toronto Raptors

    The injury to Fred VanVleet (right hamstring strain) may cost him more than the one game as Nick Nurse indicated the combo-guard could be out" a little while."

    In an ode to how quickly fantasy players' values change, Norman Powell (questionable), who is on the verge of a return, may suddenly find himself back into a prominent role and high usage situation once he can suit up. If VanVleet is forced to miss time, Powell, along with Patrick McCaw, Terence Davis and the returning Matt Thomas, will see extra minutes.

  • OG Anunoby
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    Nick Nurse said that he is again considering making a change to the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Heat after making a change for Tuesday's game.

    OG Anunoby came off the bench in favor of Rondae Hollis-Jefferson in Tuesday's win over the Cavs, but he may re-enter the starting lineup at either of the forward spots. Hoollis-Jefferson or Patrick McCaw would seem to be the most likely to move to the bench if coach Nurse makes another lineup alteration.

  • Patrick McCaw
    SG, Toronto Raptors

    Patrick McCaw (left leg soreness) made two first-half trips to the locker room, but returned to the game and finished with six points on 2-of-5 shooting, four rebounds, four assists and one steal in 22 minutes.

    McCaw started the last six games for the Raptors as they've been a bit short-handed. It's yielded mixed results. If you need a fill-in that's getting big minutes right now, McCaw could be your man.

  • Fred VanVleet
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Fred VanVleet was his usual solid self on Sunday against the Thunder, dropping 20 points (7-of-18 FG), eight assists, four 3-pointers, one block and just one turnover.

    The Raptors need all that VanVleet has to offer, and he delivered plenty over 38 minutes. It was a rare zero steal night for the thievery master. The poor shooting continues to be balanced out and more with VanVleet's terrific all-around guard play. Patrick McCaw is emerging as a key cog off the bench, he had his second strong game in a row with 13 points, three 3-pointers and two steals over 37 minutes. If you have space he is a worthy pickup at this point.

    SG, Toronto Raptors

    Patrick McCaw played a game-high 43 minutes scoring a season-high 18 points while chipping in seven rebounds, a career-high eight assists, one steal and a block in Saturday's win over the Celtics.

    With injuries plaguing the Raptors McCaw continues to be given the opportunity to get quality minutes for the team. Coupled with the starting nod, he has averaged 25 minutes for the team in the month of December, though the return on investment has been minimal thus far. Tonight's game is most likely an anomaly though it is worth keeping an eye on if he can build off this solid outing.

    Patrick McCaw drew another start for the Raptors on Monday but was near-invisible as he produced just five points, two rebounds and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes.

    McCaw is not worth an add right now, given his low usage. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, on the other hand, ate up 38 minutes off the bench and produced eight points, nine rebounds, six assists and three blocks. RHJ is worth owning in standard leagues while the rest of his pack are on the mend.

    SG, Toronto Raptors

    Patrick McCaw made another start on Sunday and was able to collect four steals in 26 minutes, also adding eight points and two triples.

    McCaw sat on the bench for the entire fourth quarter as Toronto's bench unit led a huge comeback but at this point it's safe to use him as a deep-league steals option. That's seven over his last two games.

    SG, Toronto Raptors

    Patrick McCaw was able to turn in a productive line in Friday's start, posting 11 points, three steals and a 3-pointer in 34 minutes of action.

    That's a season-high in scoring for McCaw, who is often comically hesitant to shoot. He can't afford to be that way amidst Toronto's rash of injuries, so give him a look in 20-team leagues if you need modest output in steals and threes. It's clear that the minutes will be there.

    SG, Toronto Raptors

    Patrick McCaw will move into the starting lineup on Friday night.

    McCaw will start at small forward, and despite the fact that the Raptors are down to 11 healthy players and about eight that can actually be trusted with minutes, we're skeptical that his time on the court will actually lead to statistical production. He's only a watch list guy in 20-team leagues for the time being.

    PG, Toronto Raptors

    Fred VanVleet is questionable to face the Wizards on Friday as he continues to nurse a bruised right knee.

    VanVleet has missed the last five games but has a chance to return on Friday. With Norman Powell ruled out with a shoulder injury, the Raptors would really like to get VanVleet back in the lineup. If he doesn't play, Terence Davis, Patrick McCaw and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson will all see additional opportunity.

  • Norman Powell
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    Norman Powell will miss Friday's game against the Wizards after suffering a shoulder injury.

    Powell suffered the shoulder injury towards the end of Wednesday's game against the Pistons. Fred VanVleet (right knee contusion) is questionable to return for Friday's game and will get all the opportunity he can handle if he is not put on a minutes-restriction. Terence Davis and Patrick McCaw will also see more minutes with Powell sidelined.
