  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Won't start in Play-In

    Achiuwa isn't in the starting five for Wednesday's Play-In Game versus the Bulls, Blake Murphy of reports.

    Pascal Siakam will replace Achiuwa in the starting lineup Wednesday after resting in the season finale. Achiuwa should serve as one of Toronto's primary backup bigs, averaging 8.1 points and 4.5 rebounds in 14.6 minutes across his last 10 appearances off the bench.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Double-double in finale

    Achiuwa closed Sunday's 121-105 victory over the Bucks with 14 points (6-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt), 13 rebounds, one assist and two steals across 28 minutes.

    It's the 10th double-double of the season for Achiuwa and first since Feb. 14, which was also the last time the 23-year-old found himself in the starting lineup. He'll return to the bench for the play-in tournament, but Achiuwa has scored in double digits in four straight games, giving him a little momentum heading into a must-win game Wednesday against the Bulls.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Starting Sunday

    Achiuwa will be in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Bucks, Josh Lewenberg of reports.

    Fred VanVleet (rest), Pascal Siakam (rest) and OG Anunoby (ankle) will all be watching from the sidelines for Sunday's regular-season finale, so the Raptors will roll out a starting unit featuring Malachi Flynn, Gary Trent, Scottie Barnes, Achiuwa and Jakob Poeltl. As a starter this season, Achiuwa owns averages of 13.4 points, 9.4 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.8 blocks per contest on 54.3 percent shooting from the field and 65.9 percent at the line.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Thrives off bench in loss

    Achiuwa logged 16 points (7-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), nine rebounds and one block over 20 minutes during Wednesday's 97-93 loss to the Celtics.

    Achiuwa had a very productive stretch between mid-January and mid-February, but his playing time and numbers had trended in the wrong direction following the All-Star break. The big man is ending the regular season on a strong note, however, and he has scored in double digits in three of his last five outings. That said, he's eclipsed the 20-minute mark just once in his last 10 appearances, so he is not a significant asset in fantasy outside of deep leagues.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Set to play Tuesday

    Achiuwa (illness) is available for Tuesday's game versus the Hornets, Eric Koreen of The Athletic reports.

    Achiuwa has been upgraded from questionable to available Tuesday despite a non-COVID illness. He will likely receive his typical backup center minutes behind Jakob Poeltl.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Dealing with illness

    Achiuwa is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Hornets due to a non-COVID illness, Aaron Rose of reports.

    Achiuwa was a late addition to the injury report, which is never a good sign. He's averaged 6.5 points and 3.8 rebounds in 12.5 minutes over Toronto's past four contests, so if he's sidelined, a few more minutes would be available for Chris Boucher, Thaddeus Young and Christian Koloko.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Delivers well-rounded line in win

    Achiuwa finished Tuesday's 106-92 win over the Heat with 12 points (5-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt), nine rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 24 minutes.

    Achiuwa received just six minutes in Sunday's win over the Wizards after missing the previous two games with a hamstring injury, but he saw a big uptick in playing time Tuesday while Toronto was without two key cogs on the second unit in Gary Trent (elbow) and Will Barton (ankle). He was further helped by starting center Jakob Poeltl picking up four fouls in just 23 minutes, and while Achiuwa did well to capitalize during his time on the court, it's tough to rely on him to replicate this performance with any sort of regularity. Before missing time with the hamstring issue, Achiuwa had averaged just 3.9 points, 3.4 rebounds, 0.9 assists, 0.3 steals and 0.3 blocks in 13.5 minutes over his other eight appearances in March.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Cleared for action Sunday

    Achiuwa (hamstring) is available for Sunday's game against the Wizards, Aaron Rose of reports.

    Achiuwa has missed back-to-back games and was initially listed as questionable, but he's since been cleared and will suit up versus Washington. It's unclear how many minutes he'll see in his return to action, but he figures to see at least a few stints behind Jakob Poeltl and Christian Koloko.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Questionable vs. Wizards

    Achiuwa (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's action against the Wizards, Josh Lewenberg of reports.

    A hamstring injury has kept Achiuwa out for two consecutive games, leading to more run for Chris Boucher and Christian Koloko. That pair will presumably see bigger roles again if Achiuwa remains shelved.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Out again

    Achiuwa (hamstring) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Pistons, Eric Koreen of The Athletic reports.

    Achiuwa will miss back-to-back games due to right hamstring soreness. Gary Trent (elbow) and Scottie Barnes (wrist) also remain out, so Will Barton will draw another start and Chris Boucher figures to see increased usage again.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Questionable against Detroit

    Achiuwa (hamstring) didn't participate in practice Thursday and is questionable for Friday's game versus the Pistons, Eric Koreen of The Athletic reports.

    Achiuwa is in danger of missing his second straight game due to right hamstring soreness. Chris Boucher and Christian Koloko are candidates to see extended minutes if Achiuwa doesn't suit up Friday.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Out Wednesday

    Achiuwa (hamstring) will not play Wednesday versus the Pacers, Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun reports.

    With both Achiuwa and Scottie Barnes watching from the sidelines Wednesday, Chris Boucher will have the opportunity for some extended minutes, and he could be worth a dice roll if you need some blocks. Achiuwa's next opportunity to play will come Friday against Detroit.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Questionable Wednesday

    Achiuwa is questionable for Wednesday's game against Indiana due to right hamstring tightness.

    Achiuwa has seen inconsistent playing time in recent matchups, but he played 20 minutes during Sunday's loss to Milwaukee, his highest mark since Feb. 25. However, he was a late addition to Wednesday's injury report due to his hamstring issue. Even if he sits against the Pacers, his absence likely wouldn't impact Toronto's frontcourt rotation much.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Logs 20 minutes Sunday

    Achiuwa recorded five points (2-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, three assists and one block in 20 minutes during Sunday's 118-111 loss to Milwaukee.

    Achiuwa played a few extra minutes in the loss, thanks primarily to the fact Scottie Barnes left with a wrist injury after just 13 minutes. Since the arrival of Jakob Poeltl, Achiuwa has faded into obscurity, sitting well outside the top 350 in fantasy basketball over the past month. While the injury to Barnes could afford Achiuwa somewhat of a reprieve, it is unlikely he becomes anything more than an add in deeper formats.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Logs 14 minutes in win

    Achiuwa notched four points (0-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds and one assist across 14 minutes during Tuesday's 125-110 victory over the Nuggets.

    Achiuwa's fall from grace continued Tuesday, playing fewer than 15 minutes for a third straight game. After a period of 12-team relevance, Achiuwa has quickly declined to be nothing more than a role player for the Raptors, coinciding with the arrival of Jakob Poeltl. The Raptors have made it clear they are pushing for the playoffs, meaning Achiuwa is unlikely to move up in the rotation, barring an injury to one of the starters.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Downward trend continues

    Achiuwa finished Saturday's 116-109 overtime victory over Washington with four points (2-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds and one steal over 19 minutes.

    Achiuwa's days of being a fantasy-relevant player are now well and truly behind him, with his performance Saturday doing nothing to dispel those thoughts. The acquisition of Jakob Poeltl was the nail in the coffin, especially given the Raptors appear as though they are going to push for wins ROS. If for some reason you are still hanging onto Achiuwa, rest assured you can now safely send him back to the waiver wire.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Quiet double-double Tuesday

    Achiuwa accumulated 11 points (4-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 13 rebounds and one block in 34 minutes during Tuesday's 123-113 victory over Orlando.

    Achiuwa remained in the starting lineup Tuesday, but his time on the top unit could come to an end as soon as the Raptors get one of Gary Trent (calf) or OG Anunoby (wrist) back after the All-Star break. While Achiuwa has enjoyed a productive last couple of weeks, the arrival of Jakob Poeltl at the trade deadline basically ended any long-term hopes fantasy managers had about Achiuwa's viability in 12-team leagues for the duration of the season. He can be held for now, but once Toronto is back to full strength, Achiuwa's fantasy value will likely drop precipitously.
