Toronto Raptors forward Anthony Bennett (shoulder) made his preseason (and Raptors) debut Monday against the Golden State Warriors , scoring five points (1-6 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and handing out two assists in 16 minutes.
Bennett sat out Sunday's exhibition opener after hyperextending his shoulder in a recent practice, but his return to the court Monday suggests the injury was never a major concern. Cut loose by the Minnesota Timberwolves earlier this summer, Bennett will look to recoup value while playing for his hometown team, but in a best-case scenario, he looks destined for an end-of-the-bench role.
Toronto Raptors guard Axel Toupane sat out Monday's preseason game against the Golden State Warriors with a sore right ankle.
The Raptors were playing the second game of a back-to-back set, so the team likely was just keeping Toupane out as a precaution. The 6-foot-7 wing from France has slim odds of cracking the Raptors' opening night roster.
Toronto Raptors guard Norman Powell scored 13 points (6-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT) in 18 minutes off the bench in Monday's preseason loss to the Golden State Warriors .
He continues to impress the coaching staff with his aggressiveness on both offense and defense, but Powell is still a long-shot to break camp as part of the Raptors' Opening Night roster. A good showing in the D-League could put him in line for a promotion later in the season if injuries open up some spots, however.
Toronto Raptors forward DeMarre Carroll scored 15 points (5-12 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with three rebounds and five turnovers in 24 minutes during Monday's preseason loss to the Golden State Warriors .
Despite his big contract Carroll will be playing the same kind of complementary role in Toronto that he did in Atlanta, so don't expect him to improve much on last season's numbers.
Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry did not play in Monday's preseason game against the Golden State Warriors due to some slight groin soreness, the Toronto Star reports.
He looked fine the night before against the Los Angeles Clippers , so this was likely just precautionary on the part of the Raptors. Lowry should be fine once the regular season begins.
