Jonas 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.
Jonas Valanciunas (thumb) delivered 14 points (5-8 FG, 4-5 FT) and six rebounds in 19 minutes during the Toronto 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.
Jonas 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.
Jonas Valanciunas is nursing a sprained right thumb and is questionable to play Monday against the Nuggets, Toronto 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.
Jonas 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.
