Raptors' P.J. Tucker: Will start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tucker will draw the start at power forward for Thursday's tilt against the Heat, Doug Smith of the Toronto Star reports.

With Serge Ibaka (suspension) out for Thursday's game, coach Dwane Casey has opted to insert Tucker into the starting five. The 31-year-old has averaged 5.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.0 assists, and 1.2 steals across 24.6 minutes per game since the All-Star break, but could see closer to a 30-to-35 minute workload in Ibaka's absence -- making him a solid option for DFS.

Raptors' Serge Ibaka: Receives one-game suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ibaka has been suspended for Thursday's game against the Heat, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

Ibaka was ejected from Tuesday's game against the Bulls after briefly tangling up with Robin Lopez and subsequently throwing a few punches. The league has brought down a one-game suspension for both players, which Ibaka is set to serve on Thursday. He's fully expected to rejoin the starting lineup come Saturday's matchup with the Mavericks, but in the meantime, Patrick Patterson and Lucas Nogueira should get more run at the power forward spot, while Pascal Siakam was recently recalled from the D-League and could rejoin the rotation.

Raptors' Serge Ibaka: Could face suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ibaka could face a suspension following his ejection from Tuesday's game against the Bulls.

In the third quarter, Ibaka was involved in a brief melee with Robin Lopez, in which both players threw noticeable punches. While neither punch actually landed, the league does take intent into account, and it's expected that Ibaka will be hit with a suspension sometime Wednesday. The Raptors have recalled Pascal Siakam from the D-League, perhaps in preparation for an Ibaka absence Thursday against Miami.

Raptors' Pascal Siakam: Recalled from D-League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Siakam was recalled from the D-League on Wednesday.

Siakam essentially fell out of the rotation as soon as the Raptors added Serge Ibaka and P.J. Tucker, and he's since spent a few stints in the D-League. The New Mexico State product will return to the Raptors in advance of Thursday's game against Miami, a game which he may end up starting if Serge Ibaka is suspended, as expected, following Tuesday night's melee involving Robin Lopez. Siakam has played only 20 total minutes since Feb. 8.

Raptors' DeMar DeRozan: Explodes for game-high 42 in Tuesday's OT win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeRozan scored 42 points (17-38 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 7-11 FT) while adding eight assists, seven rebounds, a steal and a block in 43 minutes during Tuesday's 122-120 overtime win over the Bulls.

He tied his career high by scoring 20 or more points for the 54th time this season. DeRozan's production has been mostly hindered, not helped, by the loss of Kyle Lowry (wrist) as he fights through extra defensive attention, but at least for one night he would not be denied, leading the Raptors to overcome a 15-point fourth-quarter deficit and then sinking the jumper that gave the team their first lead of the game with 1:23 left in OT. He'll get a day to rest before Toronto heads to Miami on Thursday for another contest with heavy playoff implications.
