Lucas Nogueira (coach's decision) was inactive for Tuesday's 102-96 overtime loss to the Heat in Game 1 of the series.
Nogueira hasn't played in any of the Toronto Raptors ' eight postseason games to date, and he'll likely remain inactive throughout the playoffs so long as none of the team's other players succumb to an injury.
Lucas Nogueira will draw the start in Toronto's season finale versus the Nets.
Nogueria will start at center for the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday. He has averaged only 6.8 minutes in the 28 games he has seen action this season. It will be hard to predict his output based on the lack of history to go on, but he should see a relatively heavy workload.
Lucas Nogueira was recalled from the D-League's Toronto Raptors 905 on Monday.
Nogueira's last appearance with the Raptors came on March 2, during which he played five minutes. He's not a regular part of the Raptors' rotation and will struggle to see the court in competitive games.
Nogueira has played in 21 games this season, averaging 2.3 points, 1.5 rebounds, 0.1 assists, 0.2 blocks, and 0.4 steals in seven minutes per game during 2015-16. With Jonas Valanciunas, Jason Thompson, Patrick Patternson, James Johnson, and Bismack Biyombo on the team, Nogueira has been buried on the depth chart all season.
Lucas Nogueira has appeared in three contests for the Toronto Raptors in February averaging 2.0 points, 1.0 rebounds, and 0.3 blocks across 6.7 minutes per game.
The biggest impact Nogueira has made for Toronto this season was assuming the role of back-up center for Bismack Biyombo when ideal starter, Jonas Valanciunas, was forced out of action for 17 games in November and December with a hand injury. However, during that time, Nogueira did post a 14 point, four rebound effort against the Warriors, showcasing an NBA-level aptitude if he were ever to assume a larger role on the team. Until then, Nogueira is firmly off the radar in nearly all formats.
