    Raptors' Jonas Valanciunas: Efficient in win over Pistons

    Valanciunas scored 15 points (7-9 FG, 1-2 FT) to go along with eight rebounds, three assists, three steals and a block in just 25 minutes of Monday's win over the Pistons. It was an efficient performance from Valanciunas, especially considering his opponent, Andre Drummond, as well as the fact that he once again saw south of 30 minutes of playing time. The 23-year-old averages just 26.3 minutes per game this season, and while his 12.4 points, 9.4 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game are useful for fantasy owners, he would likely be a nightly double-double threat if given a bump in minutes.

    Raptors' Jonas Valanciunas: Double-doubles in Thursday victory

    Valanciunas posted 14 points (5-10 FG, 4-4 FT), 11 rebounds and two blocks over 25 minutes in Thursday's 110-103 victory over the Trail Blazers. The four-year veteran supplied his third double-double in the last five games, and got back over the 20-minute mark in playing time after a pair of 19-minute outings. Valanciunas had been bothered by a wrist injury in recent days, but his Thursday performance appeared to indicate he is unencumbered by the ailment at this point. He's started February off well despite the limited playing time, averaging 12.7 points, 8.3 rebounds and 1.0 blocks over just 21.0 minutes on the court in three games. If his minutes creep back up close to his 26.3 season average, the 23-year-old should continue as a solid source of points and rebounds in all fantasy formats.

    Raptors' Jonas Valanciunas: Sees 19 minutes for second straight night

    Valanciunas (thumb) delivered 14 points (5-8 FG, 4-5 FT) and six rebounds in 19 minutes during the Raptors' 104-97 win against the Suns on Tuesday. Valanciunas' thumb was hit awkwardly and sprained in Saturday's game versus the Pistons. However, he has played in the Raptors' past two games, seeing fewer than 20 minutes for the second straight game. The 19 minutes he played Tuesday matched Monday's season-low for Valanciunas, who may continue to have his minutes limited in the near-future until his thumb is fully healed.

    Raptors' Jonas Valanciunas: Will start in Monday's contest

    Valanciunas (thumb) will play and start in Monday's matchup with the Nuggets. Vlanciunas was considered questionable entering Monday's game but won't be missing anytime with the thumb sprain he suffered on Saturday against the Pistons. The injury likely won't impact the big man's ability to play much if at all going forward.

    Raptors' Jonas Valanciunas: Plans to play through sprained thumb

    Valanciunas is nursing a sprained right thumb and is questionable to play Monday against the Nuggets, Raptors radio play-by-play announcer Eric Smith reports. Valanciunas said his thumb was hit awkwardly in Saturday's game against the Pistons, but despite his questionable designation, the Raptors seem optimistic that he'll be able to suit up Monday. In the event the team opts to err on the side of caution and makes Valanciunas a late scratch, Bismack Biyombo would likely step in as the starter at center.

    Raptors' Jonas Valanciunas: Racks up 18 boards Thursday

    Valanciunas tallied 11 points (4-16 FG, 3-3 FT), 18 rebounds (eight offensive), and one block across 28 minutes in Thursday's 103-93 triumph over the Knicks. A horrendous shooting night prevented Valanciunas from producing a truly explosive outing, but he was still able to take advantage on the glass against a Knicks squad that had less size on hand than normal with Carmelo Anthony (knee) and Kristaps Porzingis (illness) sitting out. He's been a beast on the boards of late, pulling down an average of 12.5 rebounds in the past six contests.

    Raptors' Jonas Valanciunas: Notches double-double in Tuesday's win

    Valanciunas notched a double-double in Tuesday's 106-89 win against the Wizards, scoring 13 points (5-9 FG, 3-4 FT) with 12 rebounds during 26 minutes. Valanciunas has done a nice job dodging double-doubles lately, which is odd considering he's tallied at least 12 rebounds in four of the past five games. He only has four double-doubles over 12 games in January and has made the most of his opportunities on offense, shooting 57.4 percent from the field over his last five. The Raptors are the hottest team in the Eastern Conference right now, so riding a guy like Valanciunas in daily formats isn't a bad idea.

    Raptors' Jonas Valanciunas: Scores 20 points on 11 shots Sunday

    Valanciunas recorded 20 points (8-11 FG, 4-6 FT), eight rebounds, and one block in 25 minutes during the Raptors' 112-94 win versus the Clippers on Sunday. Valanciunas got into foul trouble, otherwise he might have seen more playing time. It was his fourth 20-point performance of the season, and he has been playing extremely well lately for a Raptors team that has won nine games in row.

    Raptors' Jonas Valanciunas: Makes all nine field goal attempts Wednesday

    Valanciunas posted 19 points (9-9 FG, 1-2 FT), 12 rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 29 minutes during the Raptors' 115-109 win over the Celtics on Wednesday. Valanciunas now has eight double-doubles through 25 appearances this season, and he is averaging 12.4 points on 58 percent from the field to go with nine rebounds, two assists, two blocks, and one steal in 29 minutes per game over the last five contests. Meanwhile, backup big Bismack Biyombo saw only 16 minutes of action on Wednesday, and he is down to 19 minutes per game over the last five games.

    Raptors' Jonas Valanciunas: Just misses double-double in Saturday's win

    Valanciunas scored 17 points (7-10 FG, 3-5 FT) while adding nine rebounds, two assists, two blocks and a steal in 29 minutes during Saturday's win over the 76ers. Despite the strong play of Bismack Biyombo while Valanciunas was sidelined for over a month with a hand injury, the big Lithuanian has quickly regained his usual share of the rotation at center and is now averaging 27.2 minutes, 12.2 points, 8.7 boards and 2.2 blocks in six January games. He'll get a few days off before the Raptors take on the Magic on Thursday in London.
