Toronto Raptors center Lucas Nogueira (hamstring) will not play in the Raptors' exhibition game on Sunday, Ben Bolch of the L.A. Times reports.
Nogueira's sitting out with a sore hamstring is likely a precautionary measure. He is buried on the depth chart at center behind Jonas Valaciunas, Luis Scola , and Bismack Biyombo , so it's unlikely he'd provide much fantasy value.
Toronto Raptors center Lucas Nogueira had his team option for the 2016-17 season picked up on Tuesday, Marc J. Spears of Yahoo reports.
The option is for just over $1.9 million. Nogueira saw action in just six games last season, finishing with averages of 1.0 point, 0.2 assists and 1.8 rebounds over four minutes per game. Nogueira remains buried on the depth chart at center behind the likes of Jonas Valanciunas and Bismack Biyombo , so don't expect him to be worth much in terms of his fantasy value moving forward.
In six games with the Raptors earlier this season, Nogueira averaged 1.0 points and 1.8 rebounds. In his past four game with Fort Wayne, Nogueira averaged 8.3 points, 10.0 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 20 minutes in four games.
Nogueira has appeared in six games this season and averages 1.0 points and 1.8 rebounds.
Nogueira had just been assigned to the D-League last week. He will be available for Monday's game against the Pacers.
Nogueira has averaged 1.0 point and 1.8 rebounds in six appearances this year.
