Watson won't play in Saturday's G League contest with Maine due to a toe injury. Watson is apparently battling a toe injury, though the specifics of the issue remain unclear. His next opportunity to play comes Tuesday against Fort Wayne.
Watson posted 22 points (7-19FG, 5-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds and six assists across 37 minutes in Friday's G League win over Memphis. Watson continues to start for Raptors 905, and he's hit 49.8 percent of field goals this season. He achieved yet another double-double in this matchup, and he's averaging 17.6 points per game.
Watson posted 11 points (5-15 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 0-1 FT), eight rebounds and six assists across 36 minutes in Monday's G League loss to Lakeland. Watson signed a two-way deal with the Raptors last week after securing a 10-day contract with Atlanta. This was a rough outing for Watson, as he connected on just 33.3 percent of field goals. That's uncharacteristic for Watson, however, as he's hit 51.4 percent of shots this season.
Watson is expected to sign a two-way contract with the Raptors on Wednesday after the Hawks released him from his 10-day contract, Brad Rowland of PeachtreeHoops.com reports. Toronto is already familiar with Watson, as he appeared in 13 games with the organization's G League affiliate (Raptors 905) before the Hawks inked him to a 10-day deal Jan. 6. With the deal set to expire and Atlanta not planning on retaining Watson, the Hawks did the 6-foot-6 swingman a favor by cutting him loose early so he could ink a two-way pact prior to Wednesday's deadline for teams to sign players to those contracts. Watson will fill the two-way spot vacated by Shamorie Ponds, whom Toronto waived earlier Wednesday.
Watson's 10-day contract expired Tuesday and the Hawks will not sign him to a second one, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Watson played two games for the Hawks, totaling three assists, two rebounds and one steal in 17 minutes. He'll look to land with another team.
