Lucas Nogueira was recalled from the D-League's Toronto Raptors 905 on Tuesday.
Nogueira previously saw some court time in December when Jonas Valanciunas (hand) was sidelined, but with the Raptors frontcourt now fully healthy, the second-year big man figures to see few opportunities at the NBA level.
Lucas Nogueira was recalled from the D-League's Toronto 905 on Sunday.
Nogueira, as well as Bruno Caboclo and Delon Wright, have all been recalled after a one game stint in the D-League. In Saturday's game with the 905, Nogueira finished with eight points (4-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt), six rebounds and six assists over 40 minutes. The seven-foot center will slide in as a reserve option behind Jonas Valanciunas and Bismack Biyombo.
Lucas Nogueira (ankle) returned to action after a three-game absence and posted three points (1-4 FG, 1-2 FT), two rebounds, two steals, and one block in 15 minutes in Sunday's 96-76 win against the Sixers.
Nogueira has played in just seven games this season and is averaging 4.6 points and 2.3 rebounds in 12 minutes. Although it's a bright sign for his status that he was able to play on Sunday, it's still hard to see his upside In most fantasy formats. He's not getting enough minutes to contribute, even with Jonas Valanciunas out, and he's not worth looking at in non-keeper formats.
Lucas Nogueira (ankle) will sit out Wednesday's game against the Spurs, the Toronto Toronto Raptors Official Twitter Account reports.
Nogueira's left ankle sprain that caused him to sit out Monday night is still affecting him. It is yet unclear when he sustained this injury, but in his absence, Bismack Biyombo will continue to receive increased minutes.
Lucas Nogueira will sit out Monday against the Lakers with a sprained left ankle.
