    Hernandez has come off the bench during his first two games with Rio Grande Valley, but he posted a double-double in Sunday's victory. Through his first two appearances with the Vipers, Hernandez is averaging 7.0 points and 5.0 rebounds over 12.8 minutes per game.

  • Dewan Hernandez: Dished to Rio Grande Valley

    The Raptors 905 dealt Hernandez to Rio Grande Valley on Thursday for Jarron Cumberland.

    Hernandez played a sizable role off the bench for the Vipers this season, collecting 7.7 points and 3.8 rebounds over 14.7 minutes per game, but the staff obviously felt it needed some backcourt help. Hernandez won't have to go anywhere with the entire league taking place in a Florida bubble, so he should be available for action almost immediately.

  • Dewan Hernandez: Records nine points

    Hernandez posted nine points (3-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds and an assist across 10 minutes in Wednesday's 121-115 loss to G League Ague Caliente.

    Hernandez has been coming off the bench this year, often playing around 12 minutes per game. The 24-year-old played a more consistent role as a rookie last season, averaging nearly 30 minutes per game. However, this season, he's recorded 6.7 points and 3.4 rebounds per game.

  • Dewan Hernandez: Waived by Raptors

    Hernandez was waived by the Raptors on Thursday.

    Hernandez appeared in just six games for the Raptors last season while dealing with a severe right ankle sprain, and he'll now part ways with the organization. Over his six appearances during the 2019-20 season, Hernandez averaged 2.3 points and 2.3 rebounds over 4.7 minutes per contest.

  • Raptors' Dewan Hernandez: Cleared to play in bubble

    Hernandez (ankle) is with the Raptors in Orlando and is available to play, Austin Kent of SLAM reports.

    Hernandez missed the Raptors' final 37 games before the hiatus due to a severe right ankle sprain. Now that he's back, he'll presumably continue acting as a depth piece for Toronto. In four appearances this season, Hernandez totaled four points, seven rebounds and one steal in 11 minutes.

  • Raptors' Dewan Hernandez: Not ready to play yet

    Hernandez (ankle) is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Nuggets.

    Hernandez remains out indefinitely with the severe right ankle sprain that has prevented him from playing for either the Raptors or the G League's Raptors 905 since Dec. 17. Toronto likely won't offer a concrete timetable for Hernandez's return until he's able to resume full-court, full-contact practices.

  • Raptors' Dewan Hernandez: Remains out Sunday

    Hernandez (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Pacers.

    Hernandez hasn't seen game action since Dec. 17 with the Raptors 905 in the G League, and there's been no indication of when he may be able to return to the court. It should be safe to consider the 23-year-old week-to-week until the team provides a meaningful update.

  • Raptors' Dewan Hernandez: Sitting Monday

    Hernandez (ankle) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Timberwolves.

    Hernandez's last game action came Dec. 17, when he was on an assignment with the G League's Raptors 905. The organization hasn't indicated that Hernandez is particularly close to returning to action, so it's probably safe to rule him out through the All-Star break.

  • Raptors' Dewan Hernandez: Remains sidelined

    Hernandez (ankle) is listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Pacers.

    The rookie has been out of commission at both the NBA and G League level since Dec. 17 with a severe right ankle sprain. Toronto hasn't indicated that Hernandez is practicing yet, so it wouldn't be surprising if his absence extended through the All-Star break.

  • Raptors' Dewan Hernandez: Hits snag in recovery

    Hernandez, who is listed as out for Sunday's game against the Spurs, has recently resumed using a walking boot to protect his injured right ankle, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.

    Hernandez hasn't seen game action since Dec. 17 due to the sprained ankle, but he appeared to be closing in on a return when he shed the boot earlier this month. The Raptors' hopes for the rookie's imminent return were apparently premature, however, as he's now back in the boot and remains without a target date to play again. Toronto is otherwise relatively healthy in the frontcourt, so Hernandez will likely see most of his opportunities at the G League level once he's deemed ready to play.

  • Raptors' Dewan Hernandez: Won't play Sunday

    Hernandez (ankle) is listed as out for Sunday's tilt with San Antonio.

    Hernandez hasn't seen action at any level since Dec. 17 as he continues to battle with a severe right ankle sprain. The rookie center remains without a firm timetable for return as the team's been relatively silent regarding his rehab.

  • Raptors' Dewan Hernandez: Not playing Monday

    Hernandez (ankle) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Hawks.

    Hernandez shed the walking boot protecting his sprained right ankle two weeks ago, but the Raptors haven't indicated the rookie big man is close to returning to game action. The 23-year-old hasn't seen action with Toronto nor the G League's Raptors 905 since Dec. 17.

  • Raptors' Dewan Hernandez: No longer in boot

    Hernandez was spotted Monday without a walking boot protecting his sprained right ankle, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.

    Hernandez has been sidelined for just over two weeks with the ankle injury, but his ability to ditch the boot represents a tangible sign of progress. The rookie big man could be cleared to resume on-court activity in the near future, though he seems likely to miss at least a few more games before the Raptors give him the green light to play again.

  • Raptors' Dewan Hernandez: Facing uncertain return date

    Hernandez (ankle) is listed as out for Thursday's game against the Heat.

    Hernandez hasn't played for the Raptors or the G League's Raptors 905 since Dec. 17, when he sprained his right ankle. The rookie big man was still in a walking boot as of Christmas Day, and with no reports emerging suggesting that he's close to resuming on-court activity, it appears safe to rule him out for at least a few more games.

  • Raptors' Dewan Hernandez: Confined to walking boot

    Hernandez was spotted with a walking boot protecting his sprained right ankle while he was sidelined for Wednesday's 118-102 loss to the Celtics, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.

    Hernandez's absence Wednesday was his third straight on account of the injury, and the fact that he's in a boot suggests he'll likely viewed as out indefinitely rather than day-to-day. The rookie second-round pick wasn't likely to be a major factor in the Toronto rotation in the near future, even with fellow frontcourt players Marc Gasol (hamstring) and Pascal Siakam (groin) facing uncertain timelines to return to action.

  • Raptors' Dewan Hernandez: Ruled out Wednesday

    Hernandez (ankle) is out Wednesday against the Celtics.

    Hernandez will remain sidelined as a result of a sprained ankle that has kept him sidelined since Dec. 16 against Cleveland. The 22-year-old has averaged just 2.8 minutes per game in his first four NBA appearances this season, so the team likely won't need to rush him back until he's fully healthy.
