DeRozan delivered 36 points (13-21 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 9-14 FG), three assists, and two rebounds in 36 minutes during Monday's 131-112 win over the Magic. DeRozan has gone for at least 30 points in seven of 17 contests following the All-Star break. He is contributing career highs in scoring, rebounding, and made free throws per game this season, but the absence of Kyle Lowry (wrist) doesn't appear to be having much of an impact on DeRozan's fantasy value.
DeRozan collected 18 points (8-17 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six assists, three rebounds, one steal and one block across 37 minutes during Saturday's 94-86 victory over the Mavericks. After erupting for back-to-back 40-point outings, DeRozan finished with a modest 18 points, though contributed six assists, surpassing his season average of 3.8 dimes per game. The 27-year-old swingman's game is largely reliant on getting to the charity stripe, and part of his subpar scoring performance is likely a result of shooting just two free throws. Serge Ibaka's return from a one game suspension also probably took some pressure off DeRozan to be the Raptors' clear main source of offense. Overall, his numbers in Kyle Lowry's (wrist) absence have been nearly identical to those before his injury, likely surprising most fantasy owners who expected a significant jump in production.
DeRozan accumulated 40 points (14-25 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 12-13 FT), six rebounds, three assists and one steal across 36 minutes during Thursday's 101-84 victory over the Heat. With both Kyle Lowry (wrist) and Serge Ibaka (suspension) both out, DeRozan took it upon himself to carry the scoring burden for the Raptors, dropping his second consecutive 40-point game. Overall, DeRozan has somewhat struggled over the month of March without Lowry available, averaging 22.8 points per game on 43.9 percent shooting. He relies heavily on his mid-range game and drives to the hoop, but has had trouble finding his shots with defenses easily able to focus on him, since the Raptors have few other players capable of creating off the dribble.
DeRozan scored 42 points (17-38 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 7-11 FT) while adding eight assists, seven rebounds, a steal and a block in 43 minutes during Tuesday's 122-120 overtime win over the Bulls. He tied his career high by scoring 20 or more points for the 54th time this season. DeRozan's production has been mostly hindered, not helped, by the loss of Kyle Lowry (wrist) as he fights through extra defensive attention, but at least for one night he would not be denied, leading the Raptors to overcome a 15-point fourth-quarter deficit and then sinking the jumper that gave the team their first lead of the game with 1:23 left in OT. He'll get a day to rest before Toronto heads to Miami on Thursday for another contest with heavy playoff implications.
DeRozan scored 14 points (3-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 8-8 FT) to go along with eight rebounds and six assists over36 minutes in Friday's 87-75 win over the Pistons. After 22 and 25 points in his last two contests, DeRozan cooled off on Friday and managed only 33 percent from the floor, although he more than held his own at the defensive end in holding Marcus Morris to 1-for-13 shooting. DeRozan's still the focal point of Toronto's offense while Kyle Lowry (wrist) remains sidelined, as he's averaged 25 points, 5.8 rebounds and 3.8 assists since the point guard was injured. It's looking like Lowry will be ready for the postseason, so until the end of the regular season DeRozan should still be Toronto's best fantasy option despite Friday's unexciting stat line. The Raptors face a less-than-impressive Indiana defense Sunday, making him an excellent play in all formats.
