    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson rolled his ankle when he landed on Kyle Kuzma in the first half, but he returned to the game on Saturday in the third quarter.

    Hollis-Jefferson is a lanky defender who is valuable for the Raptors in limited minutes. His game doesn't translate to fantasy though.

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson landed on Kyle Kuzma's foot and rolled his ankle, forcing him to exit the game on Saturday.

    Hollis-Jefferson looked like he was going to shake it off, but he eventually had to leave the game. He didn't head to the locker room and we may get an update if he is evaluated during half time.

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson had quite the climb in 2019-20, starting the year out of the rotation and eventually becoming a trusted defensive presence while compiling top-235 fantasy value.

    Hollis-Jefferson bounced back after a down season in his final year with the Nets. He didn't really get an opportunity to play until the Raptors suffered multiple injuries but quickly made his mark as a multi-positional defender. He averaged 7.2 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.4 blocks while shooting .471 from the field in 19.2 mpg. RHJ didn't play enough to crack the standard-league radar outside of short runs in November and late December, but he did show the same stat set that made him a solid fantasy option a few years ago. If Hollis-Jefferson can get minutes, he'll offer enough rebounds and steals to hold sleeper appeal.

  • Fred VanVleet
    PG, Toronto Raptors

    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.

  • Serge Ibaka
    PF, Toronto Raptors

    Serge Ibaka (sore right knee) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game vs. the Suns.

    There was some hope that he would be able to suit up on Tuesday but he is going to wind up missing his third game in a row. In his stead, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and especially OG Anunoby will be the big winners in the Raptors' front court. The Raptors take on the Warriors next, on Thursday, so hopefully Ibaka will be able to return to action for that one.

  • Serge Ibaka
    PF, Toronto Raptors

    Serge Ibaka (right knee soreness) has been downgraded to doubtful for Tuesday's matchup with the Suns.

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson is likely to be in line for another start and is worth a stream for owners looking for extra rebounds and defensive numbers. Chris Boucher is also in line for additional minutes, while Pascal Siakam gets more run at the five.

  • Serge Ibaka
    PF, Toronto Raptors

    Serge Ibaka (right knee soreness) is considered questionable for Tuesday's game.

    Ibaka last played on February 25. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson may continue to start if Ibaka is held out again, but he cannot duplicate Ibaka's considerable impact.

  • Serge Ibaka
    PF, Toronto Raptors

    Serge Ibaka (right knee soreness) is being listed as questionable to take on the Nuggets on Sunday.

    Ibaka missed Friday's game which allowed Rondae Hollis-Jefferson to start and put up a very pedestrian four points, nine rebounds, one assist and nothing else on 2-of-8 shooting. Chris Boucher wasn't able to get into a rhythm while playing only 16 minutes with Ibaka and Marc Gasol both out. We should see a better performance from both players if Ibaka remains out.

  • Norman Powell
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    Norman Powell (left finger fracture) is active for Friday's game against the Hornets, and he will be in the starting lineup.

    Powell's recovery came awfully fast, and it's a good thing as the Raptors needed some more bodies to fill in for Fred VanVleet (left shoulder). Powell was giving late mid-round value earlier in the year, but it could be tougher to do that while his teammates are healthy. If you have space he is worth a 12-team flyer to see how the roster shuffles out. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson will also start on Friday, in place of Serge Ibaka. RHJ should have some value as long as Ibaka and Marc Gasol are out, although Chris Boucher may have even more upside for his blocks.

  • Rondae Hollis-Jefferson
    SF, Toronto Raptors

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson was great in a spot start for Serge Ibaka (illness) on Monday, putting up 21 points (8-of-13 FGs), six boards, one dime and three steals in 34 minutes.

    RHJ got the start because the Raptors top two big men were out, and it didn't hurt him that Norman Powell (finger fracture) was also missing. unless Ibaka's illness keeps him out of the Raptors' next game on Wednesday, Hollis-Jefferson should be returned to or left on the waiver wire.

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson will get the start on Monday due to the absences of Marc Gasol and Serge Ibaka.

    RHJ doesn't contribute much outside of rebounds, but at least he'll be in line for bigger minutes against the Wolves.

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (right ankle sprain) returned to action in Wednesday's win over the Pacers but was not much to speak of in 13 minutes as he was scoreless and had just two rebounds and one steal to his name.

    RHJ will see his minutes ramp up as he gets closer to 100 percent. The Raptors will need help, especially with OG Anunoby hitting rock-bottom tonight with his own scoreless outing, adding just three rebounds and one steal in 21 minutes.

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (right ankle sprain) will play in Wednesday’s tilt vs. the Pacers.

    RHJ returned to practice on Tuesday and will be able to make his return after missing the last four games. Terence Davis and Patrick McCaw will likely see fewer minutes on Wednesday with RHJ back in the mix.

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (right ankle sprain) is being listed as questionable to play against the Pacers on Wednesday after returning to practice on Tuesday.

    RHJ has missed the last handful of games but looks to be close to returning to action. With Marc Gasol (hamstring) out of the lineup, there will be a few extra minutes to go around for Hollis-Jefferson, but he doesn't see enough time while the team is relatively healthy to be on the fantasy radar in standard leagues.

    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (right ankle sprain) will not play on Sunday but may return on Wednesday.

    Hollis-Jefferson's absence has opened up some minutes in the forward rotation but none of Toronto's bench guys have seized the opportunity, with the playing time spread around among the usual faces.
