Lucas Nogueira (hamstring) remained on the sidelines during Monday's preseason win over the Timberwolves.
Nogueira has missed all four of the Toronto Raptors ' preseason contests to date, and it's not certain if he'll receive clearance to return to the court before the exhibition schedule concludes.
Jonas Valanciunas scored 11 points (2-5 FG, 9-10 FT) to go along with six boards and a blocked shot in Monday's preseason win over the Timberwolves.
Through four preseason games, Valanciunas is averaging 10.3 points, eight rebounds, and 0.8 blocks in just 21.7 minutes per game while shooting 50 percent from the field. These numbers shouldn't be taken as evidenced that the 23-year-old is on the cusp of a breakout in his fourth NBA season, but he's done well to show gradual improvement in his production in each successive campaign. With an uninspiring crew of backup center options behind him following the offseason departure of Amir Johnson, expect Valanciunas to see his minutes count trend upward in 2015-16, along with his overall numbers.
Head coach Paul Casey said Terrence Ross tweaked an ankle in Monday's preseason game, Josh Lewenberg of TSN Sports reports.
Casey did not say if Ross injured his right ankle or the left ankle that he underwent surgery on earlier this year, but either way, Ross did not exit Tuesday's contest at 100 percent. It remains to be seen if the injury will cost Ross any game action, but the Toronto Raptors figure to be cautious with him with a couple weeks of preseason remaining.
Raptors guard Kyle Kyle Lowry set the Toronto Raptors preseason record for points Monday night with 40.
Lowry was on fire Monday night going off for 40 points on 13 of 18 from the field, six of nine from deep, and eight for eight from the line.
Through three preseason games he now has 91 points in 75 minutes, all on 68 percent shooting, including 11 for 17 from three. While it's important to emphasize this is just the preseason, Lowry notably lost some weight coming in to camp and appears to be playing in mid-season form already.
Raptors guard DeMar DeMar DeRozan will sit out Monday night's game versus Toronto to rest Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune reports.
DeRozan has averaged 10.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, 3 assists, and 1 steal in 24.5 minutes in 3 games so far this preseason. He's entering his 7th season with the Toronto Raptors and should continue to provide plenty of scoring as well as solid contribution in several other categories. He's coming off a career low in field goal percentage and will look to turn that around this year.
