Bennett was recalled from Raptors 905 of the NBA's D-League on Saturday. Bennett has appeared in just 13 of the Raptors' 47 contests this season, logging a minimal 4.9 minutes per outing during those showings. Meanwhile, in six D-League contests, he's averaging 9.2 points (on 34 percent shooting), 3.1 rebounds, 1.0 steal, 0.7 assists, and 0.7 blocks in 18 minutes.
Bennett was recalled from the D-League on Tuesday. The former No. 1 overall pick has played sparingly in parts of 10 games for the Raptors this season, and he's struggled in four D-League appearances, averaging just 11.0 points and 3.3 rebounds on 31.2 percent shooting. The 22-year-old is unlikely to make an impact at the NBA level any time soon.
Bennett was recalled by the Raptors on Friday. Despite the promotion, Bennett has made just 10 appearances on the season for the Raptors and will likely head back down to the D-League at a later point in the season. Barring something unforeseen, Bennett will remain buried on Toronto's depth chart behind Luis Scola, Patrick Patterson, and James Johnson.
Bennett was assigned to the D-League's Toronto 905 on Thursday, Doug Smith of the Toronto Star reports. Bennett hasn't seen the court for the Raptors in the last three games, so the assignment to the 905 should allow him to pick up some needed playing time. He's unlikely to become a part of the Raptors' rotation when he inevitably rejoins the team.
Bennett will be assigned to the D-League Raptors 905 for their game Sunday against the Delaware 87ers, but is expected to rejoin Toronto before their contest at 6:00 ET against the Kings. Raptors 905 is based in nearby Mississauga, Ontario, so Bennett will likely have enough travel time to report back to Toronto before warmups begin. While it's possible Bennett could see the court with both teams Sunday, most -- if not all -- of the forward's playing time figures to come with the D-League affiliate. Bennett isn't a regular member of coach Dwane Casey's rotation in Toronto and hasn't played in the Raptors' last two contests.
