  • Raptors' Thaddeus Young: Strong showing off bench Saturday

    Young ended with 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 0-2 FT), five rebounds, five assists, one block and three steals in 30 minutes during Saturday's 110-102 win over the 76ers.

    The veteran forward hadn't played more than eight minutes in any of the first three games in the series, but with the Raptors in a 3-0 hole, coach Nick Nurse gave Young plenty of run and he responded. After this performance, it seems likely the 33-year-old will have a significant role again in Game 5 on Monday.

  • Raptors' Thaddeus Young: Remains doubtful for Monday

    Young (thumb) attended Monday morning's shootaround but remains doubtful for Monday's Game 2 against the 76ers, Josh Lewenberg of TSN.ca reports.

    Young was seen with his left hand taped up at shootaround, and he managed to get some shots up, but it's still unlikely that he plays in Game 2 after hyperextending his left thumb in Saturday's Game 1. If he's ultimately ruled out, Precious Achiuwa and Khem Birch could see additional run in the Raptors' frontcourt Monday.

  • Raptors' Thaddeus Young: Good to go

    Young (thumb) will play in Game 2 on Monday against Philadelphia, Michael Grange of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Young's status for the second game of the series was in question due to a hyperextended left thumb, an injury that occurred during Game 1. However, he's been given the green light and will be ready to go off the bench. Young played a limited role Saturday, logging six minutes and one rebound in the loss.

  • Raptors' Thaddeus Young: Bumped up to questionable

    Young (thumb) has been upgraded from doubtful to questionable for Monday night's Game 2 against the 76ers.

    Young hyperextended his left thumb during Saturday's Game 1, and while the Raptors initially believed he wouldn't have much of a chance to play Monday, it looks like he's made some tangible progress. At this juncture, it's still a 50-50 proposition, but Young will likely go through a pregame workout before a final call is made. Scottie Barnes (ankle) has been ruled out for Game 2, while Gary Trent (illness) remains doubtful.

  • Raptors' Thaddeus Young: Likely to miss Game 2

    Young was diagnosed Sunday with a hyperextended left thumb and is listed as doubtful Monday for Game 2 of the Raptors' first-round playoff series with the 76ers, Eric Koreen of The Athletic reports.

    A valued member of the Raptors' second unit, Young's expected absence Monday will loom even larger Monday with starters Gary Trent (illness) and Scottie Barnes (ankle) also listed as doubtful for Game 2. Young suffered the left thumb injury in the second quarter of Saturday's 131-111 loss in Game 1 of the series before undergoing an MRI on Sunday that confirmed he hyperextended the digit. The veteran forward was present at practice Sunday but didn't participate in the session and was sporting a wrap on his thumb, so he could be at risk of missing additional time beyond Monday's game.

  • Raptors' Thaddeus Young: Exits with sprained thumb

    Young won't return to Saturday's Game 1 against the 76ers due to a sprained thumb, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports. He played six minutes and scored two points (1-1 FG).

    Young attempted to stay in the game following the injury but ultimately won't return. If he misses time beyond Saturday, more minutes could be in store for Chris Boucher.

  • Raptors' Thaddeus Young: Efficient performance in win

    Young logged 14 points (6-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, three assists and one steal in 24 minutes during Friday's 117-115 win over the Rockets.

    Young has scored in double digits off the bench in four of his last eight games, but his numbers have been inconsistent. This outing against the Rockets allowed the veteran power forward to snap a four-game stretch in which he couldn't score more than seven points in any contest. He's averaged 7.5 points and 4.5 rebounds per game over his last 10 contests.

  • Raptors' Thaddeus Young: Stellar production off bench

    Young finished with 12 points (5-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt), eight rebounds, three assists, three blocks and one steal across 28 minutes Monday in the Raptors' 115-112 overtime win over the Celtics.

    With Gary Trent (toe) back from a three-game absence, the Raptors had their ideal starting five intact for the first time since February, but Young still saw substantial minutes off the bench. Though the Raptors' big men were helped by Khem Birch (knee) sitting out, it was Young who was the greater priority than Chris Boucher (15 minutes). Considering Young was held under 20 minutes in each of the previous seven contests, he can't be expected to regularly pick up extended run like he did Monday, but he at least provided a useful reminder of what sort of production he can offer when given meaningful run.

  • Raptors' Thaddeus Young: Scores 11 points off bench

    Young had 11 points (4-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one assist, one block and two steals in 15 minutes during Saturday's 131-91 win over Indiana.

    Young scored in double figures for the first time since March 1. Over his last 12 appearances, the veteran big man has averaged 4.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.1 steals in 16.2 minutes per game. While he continues to garner consistent playing time, his lack of substantial production should keep him off fantasy radars.

  • Raptors' Thaddeus Young: Continues meager production

    Young totaled three points (1-2 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 0-2 FT), two rebounds and one assist in 12 minutes during Wednesday's 103-100 victory over the Clippers.

    Young was a nonfactor during his time on the court, which has been the case more often than not of late. The veteran hasn't posted double-digit points since March 1 despite typically getting minutes in the mid-teens or higher. Young has been a decent per-minute producer of boards and steals, but he isn't on the radar in fantasy leagues.

  • Raptors' Thaddeus Young: Available Friday

    Young (illness) is available for Friday's game against the Magic, Aaron Rose of SI.com reports.

    Young was unavailable Thursday due to a non-COVID illness, but he'll be able to return a day later. Across his last five appearances, he's averaged 9.4 points and 3.6 rebounds in 20.4 minutes per game.

  • Raptors' Thaddeus Young: Questionable Friday

    Young (illness) is questionable for Friday's game against the Magic.

    Young missed Thursday's game with a non-COVID=19 illness, but he may be able to return to action Friday. He's averaged 9.4 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.0 steals in 20.4 minutes in his past five games.

  • Raptors' Thaddeus Young: Won't play Thursday

    Young (illness) is out Thursday against the Pistons, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.

    Young is dealing with a non-COVID illness that will force him to miss at least one game. Chris Boucher, Precious Achiuwa and Khem Birch should see increased run Thursday.

  • Raptors' Thaddeus Young: Questionable with illness

    Young is questionable for Thursday's matchup against the Pistons due to an illness, Doug Smith of the Toronto Star reports.

    Young has been a consistent part of the rotation since Valentine's Day, averaging 8.5 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.0 steals in 19.0 minutes. If he sits out, more minutes could be available for Chris Boucher, Precious Achiuwa and Khem Birch.

  • Raptors' Thaddeus Young: Leads bench in minutes Tuesday

    Young closed with 11 points (4-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 23 minutes during Tuesday's 109-108 victory over Brooklyn.

    Young led all bench players with 23 minutes in the victory, a sign that he is slowly but surely moving up the pecking order in Toronto. While he is yet to fully embrace his new role, he has been doing just enough (double-digit points and at least one steal in three straight games) to at least be considered in standard leagues for those seeking an efficient, low-volume scorer who can chip in across the board. His exact role remains a little unclear but based on recent events, the streaming appeal feels relatively safe.

  • Raptors' Thaddeus Young: Solid all-around line off bench

    Young produced 10 points (4-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-3 FT), two rebounds, three assists and two steals over 22 minutes during Saturday's 127-100 loss to Atlanta.

    While the Raptors have been blown out by a combined 59 points over their last two games, Young has quietly emerged as a 20-plus-minute player off the bench. He's played at least 21 minutes in three straight games, and his outlook should be boosted by OG Anunoby's (finger) absence, which could span multiple weeks. To date, Young hasn't done quite enough to warrant "must-add" status, but his history of all-around production implies that he could be a solid late-season addition if the minutes are there. A year ago, Young averaged 12.1 points, 6.2 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 1.1 steals and 0.6 blocks in 24.3 minutes per game as a member of the Bulls.

  • Raptors' Thaddeus Young: Gets bump in minutes

    Young played 20 minutes off the bench and finished with 10 points (5-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 0-1 FT), five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in Wednesday's 103-91 win over the Timberwolves.

    Young didn't make his Raptors debut until garbage time of a 30-point loss to the Pelicans on Monday, but he logged more meaningful minutes in a competitive contest Wednesday. Not only did Young close the game on the court, but he saw around the same amount of run as his main competition in the frontcourt in Chris Boucher (22 minutes), Precious Achiuwa (20 minutes) and Khem Birch (20 minutes). The crowding in the frontcourt makes it difficult to rely on any of those four players on a game-by-game basis, though Boucher and Young probably offer the most fantasy upside of that quartet.
