Hollis-Jefferson had six points (3-4 FG, 0-2 FT), three rebounds and one assist in 17 minutes during Tuesday's 121-110 overtime loss to the Heat. Hollis-Jefferson had his streak of 10 straight games of 20-plus minutes snapped. With Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka both back in the lineup, that will likely result in less minutes for Hollis-Jefferson going forward. Nevertheless, he appears to have earned the respect and trust of coach Nick Nurse after it seemed Hollis-Jefferson wasn't going to be part of the regular rotation during the first couple weeks of the regular season.
Hollis-Jefferson scored 16 points (6-11 FG, 4-6 FT) while adding 10 rebounds and three assists in 31 minutes off the bench during Monday's 101-96 win over the 76ers. The banged-up Raptors continue to roll with a short bench -- only eight Toronto players saw court time Monday -- but with performances like this from RHJ, the defending champs can get away with it for a little while longer. Hollis-Jefferson has two double-doubles in eight games since moving into a significant role, averaging 10.9 points, 7.4 boards, 1.9 assists and 1.0 steals in 24.6 minutes over that stretch.
Hollis-Jefferson totaled 16 points (6-8 FG, 4-4 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 26 minutes Wednesday in the Raptors' 114-106 win over the Trail Blazers. Malcolm Miller received the starting nod at small forward in place of the injured OG Anunoby (eye), but it was Hollis-Jefferson who acted as the de facto replacement. Though Hollis-Jefferson will probably struggle to replicate this sort of efficient shooting if Anunoby misses additional games, he should remain a decent source of steals and rebounds when given 20-plus minutes off the bench.
Hollis-Jefferson totaled nine points (4-11 FG, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds, three steals, one block and one assist in 29 minutes off the bench Monday in the Raptors' 98-88 loss to the Clippers. After receiving just four minutes through the Raptors' first eight games, Hollis-Jefferson has cracked the rotation the past two contests as a result of Toronto's mounting injuries. The absence of Serge Ibaka (ankle) paved the way for Hollis-Jefferson to log 15 minutes in Sunday's 113-104 win over the Lakers, and OG Anunoby's (eye) early departure Monday opened up even more playing time. Anunoby is scheduled to meet with a doctor Tuesday before a ruling comes on his status for Wednesday's game against the Trail Blazers, but Hollis-Jefferson should have a path to 25-plus minutes again in Portland if Anunoby is out.
Hollis-Jefferson saw 15 minutes of action off the bench Sunday against the Lakers, finishing with 10 points (4-6 FG, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and two assists. While Hollis-Jefferson's line was nothing special, the bigger news here is that he was in the rotation for the first time since opening week, and that could continue in the short term so long as the Raptors are without Serge Ibaka (ankle).
