Baynes will come off the bench Tuesday against the Bucks, Matt Devlin of TSN reports. The 34-year-old has started in all 24 of his appearances this season, but he'll move to the bench with OG Anunoby (calf) returning from a 10-game absence. Norman Powell and Pascal Siakam will join Anunoby in the starting frontcourt Tuesday.
Baynes totaled six points (3-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist and one steal over 24 minutes in Sunday's 116-112 loss to the Timberwolves. Although Baynes has started every game for the Raptors this season, he hasn't generated excessive production. He had limited availability in Sunday's matchup due to foul trouble, and he was the least productive starter in the narrow loss to Minnesota. The 34-year-old has had a limited fantasy ceiling to begin the year.
Baynes (groin) is available for Friday's game against the Nets, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports. Baynes was probable for Wednesday's contest due to a strained right groin, so it comes as little surprise to see him active against Brooklyn. The 34-year-old is averaging 7.3 points and 9.3 rebounds over 26.8 minutes per game across the past four matchups.
Baynes is probable for Friday's game against the Nets due to strained right groin. Baynes has seen increased run lately, averaging 7.3 points, 9.3 rebounds and 1.0 assists across 26.8 minutes during the last four games. However, he's dealing with a groin injury that was likely suffered in Tuesday's win over the Magic. That said, he should still see the court Friday.
Baynes ended with eight points (3-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 16 rebounds and one assist in 29 minutes during Sunday's 115-102 victory over the Magic. Baynes continues to log decent minutes for the Raptors and came through with a season-high 16 rebounds. Not only is he increasing his fantasy stock, if only slightly, but he is also making Chris Boucher a tough player to start right now. Baynes' ceiling is quite limited, and so despite the playing time, he is more of a streaming option as opposed to a must-roster player.
