The Raptors sent Sullinger to the 905 so he could get some extended run in Saturday's game against the Canton Charge, during which he recorded 16 points, 10 rebounds and five assists in 27 minutes. It's unclear if the Raptors will have Patrick Patterson (ankle) back for Sunday's game against the Pistons, but Sullinger doesn't seem likely to take on substantial playing time if Patterson remains unavailable. Sullinger hasn't played more than 17 minutes in any of his 11 appearances with the Raptors since returning in January from a fractured right foot.
Sullinger is expected to suit up for the 905 in their game Saturday against the Canton Charge before returning to the Raptors in time for Sunday's game against the Pistons. Though Sullinger returned nearly three weeks ago from the fractured right foot that had sidelined him all season, he's yet to gain a sizable role with the second unit. Sullinger has seen single-digit minutes in each of the Raptors' last four games and still appears to be behind the rest of his teammates from a conditioning standpoint.
Sullinger played five minutes in a 103-95 win over the Nets on Sunday, scoring no points and grabbing one rebound.
Sullinger looked as though he turned a corner when he provided season highs in points (13) and rebounds (six) in 16 minutes during a Feb. 1 loss to his former team in the Celtics, but the big man still hasn't quite established himself as a major fixture in the rotation since returning from a fractured foot. He's fallen below the 10-minute mark in both of the last two contests, and his limited usage Sunday came in a contest that the Raptors were without fellow power forward Patrick Patterson (knee). Until Sullinger routinely hits the 20-minute mark, it will be difficult to justify rostering him in most leagues.
Sullinger was sent down to the D-League on Saturday, Josh Lewenberg of TSN Sports reports.
Sullinger received a DNP-CD during Friday's game against the Bucks, and he'll likely only remain in the D-League for one game to get some extra run and help build his wind. It seems probable that he'll be available for the Raptors' next contest, which comes Sunday against the Magic.
Sullinger received a DNP-CD during Friday's 102-86 win over the Bucks.
Sullinger was somewhat surprisingly moved out of the rotation after he had played 14.0 minutes per game since his return from a foot injury. But he has been awful since he returned from the injury, with averages of 4.0 points on 25.8 percent shooting and 2.6 rebounds per game over the five previous games. It's unlikely that the team is giving up on him this quickly, so we'll see if he moves back into the rotation against the Magic on Sunday.
