Powell compiled 13 points (4-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, an assist and a steal across 34 minutes in Thursday's 122-103 loss to the Jazz.
Although it's a small sample size, there appears to be a correlation between Powell and Robert Covington's production. It's been rare for both players to meet projections in the same game, and it appears that the beneficiary is determined by who's got a hot hand. This wasn't the case when Gary Trent was in this spot, but Powell presents a better defensive presence. It's unclear if this is going to be a continuing trend, but at the very least, it should keep DFS players from considering a two-player stack of Covington and Powell.
Powell (toe) will play Thursday against the Jazz, Jay Allen of NBC Sports Northwest Rip City Radio 620 reports.
Powell will play as expected after he had been listed probable despite a left big toe problem. The 27-year-old should be in line for his regular workload in Thursday's contest.
Powell is probable for Thursday's game at Utah with inflammation in his left big toe, Jay Allen of NBC Sports Northwest Rip City Radio 620 reports.
The 27-year-old apparently picked up the injury during Tuesday's loss to the Clippers, when he tallied 32 points (8-18 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 14-15 FT), four rebounds and one assist in 37 minutes, but it appears to be a minor issue. Powell should be in the lineup Thursday against the Jazz, barring a setback.
Powell had 32 points (8-18 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 14-15 FT), four rebounds and one assist in 37 minutes during Tuesday's 133-116 loss to the Clippers.
Powell has now scored at least 12 points in every game since being traded to the Trail Blazers, averaging 18.6 points per game during that time, adding 2.3 triples and 1.9 steals. While the defensive production is likely unsustainable, the scoring is something he has built his reputation on, and as long as that holds, he should remain a clear must-roster player the rest of the way.
Powell notched 22 points (7-13 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 3-5 FT), two rebounds, two steals, an assist and a block across 36 minutes in Friday's 112-105 win over the Magic.
Powell was traded from the Raptors to the Trail Blazers on Thursday and didn't waste any time to make an impact with his new team. He embraced a big role on offense with Damian Lillard (knee) sidelined and ended as the team's highest-scoring player alongside CJ McCollum. Powell has scored at least 20 points in four of his last seven games dating back to his Toronto tenure.
Powell (recently traded) is starting Friday's game against Orlando, Jay Allen of NBC Sports Northwest Rip City Radio 620 reports.
Powell was traded from the Raptors to the Trail Blazers on Thursday and will join the starting lineup during his debut with the team. Powell will play "a significant amount" Friday with Damian Lillard (rest) sidelined.
Powell (recently traded) is questionable for Friday's game against the Magic, Jamie Hudson of NBC Sports Northwest reports.
The trade between the Raptors and Trail Blazers is still pending, but it surprisingly seems like Powell may be able to play just one day after getting dealt. If he plays, there's a chance he joins the starting five.
The Trail Blazers acquired Powell from the Raptors on Thursday in exchange for Gary Trent and Rodney Hood, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Powell had a long list of suitors leading up to the trade deadline after averaging a career-high 19.6 points on magnificent 49.8/86.5/43.9 percent shooting splits from the field, free-throw line and three-point range, respectively, across his 30.4 minutes per game with Toronto. The 27-year-old will presumably slot into a starting role on the wing alongside Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum, giving Portland one of the league's deadliest trio of shooters as the team gears up for a potential playoff run. Powell is expected to decline his $11.62 million player option for 2021-22 to become a free agent after this season, but Portland would be in strong position to re-sign him if he fits in well with the team over the next few months.
Powell registered 22 points (8-12 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three assists, two rebounds, one steal and one block in 24 minutes during Wednesday's win over the Nuggets.
The 27-year-old is sitting on career-high averages in points (19.6) and three-pointers (2.8) while shooting 49.8 percent from the field this year. After bouncing in and out of the starting lineup to start the season, Powell has settled in as a full-time starter. He should continue receiving heavy minutes for a Raptors team that is currently three games back from the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.
Powell recorded 19 points (8-18 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 2-3 FT), three assists, two rebounds and a steal across 35 minutes in Monday's 117-99 loss to the Rockets.
Powell struggled from beyond the arc in the loss, but that was par for the course for the team Monday. The Raptors were only able to convert 25 percent of their 40 three-point attempts. Powell provides a solid presence in the team's offense currently and is usually far more accurate, with a 49,5 percent field-goal conversion rate over 41 games. He only trails Chris Boucher among Toronto players who have recorded 20 or more games in that category.
Powell produced 18 points (7-16 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and two rebounds across 33 minutes in Sunday's 116-105 loss to the Cavaliers.
Powell emerged as a valuable asset while Toronto dealt with an onslaught of COVID-19-related absences and injuries, and the UCLA product's role as a starter is guaranteed as the team struggles to get out of the basement in the East. Toronto's infrastructure could get shaken up in the coming days, and if the trade rumors surrounding Kyle Lowry come to pass, expect Powell and the rest of Toronto's playmakers to receive a boost in production.
Powell popped for 43 points (14-18 FG, 8-12 3Pt, 7-9 FT) and three rebounds in 38 minutes during Wednesday's 116-112 loss to the Pistons.
Powell single-handedly kept the Raptors within striking distance, setting a new career high in scoring in the process. He got off to a slow start, but Powell has averaged 24.3 points per game across 24 contests since joining the starting lineup on a full-time basis, and it's hard to see him going back to the bench even if the team gets fully healthy.
Powell produced 32 points (13-22 FG, 3-11 3Pt, 3-5 FT), five assists, four rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot across 37 minutes in Sunday's 118-95 loss to the Bulls.
Powell bounced back after an off-night against the Hornets. Powell is now a frequent member of the starting five, and his role is markedly enhanced in the wake of the numerous absences due to COVID-19 protocols. He's especially efficient when Fred VanVleet is absent, and as long as the starting guard remains out, Powell's ceiling should remain elevated.
Powell had 13 points (4-14 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, three steals and two assists across 28 minutes in Saturday's loss to Charlotte.
Powell had a rough night from the field, and the Raptors certainly missed his scoring outputs. Powell also ended a streak of four games with 20 or more points, so this was clearly a game he'd like to forget as soon as possible. Powell will try to turn things around Sunday at Chicago.
Powell recorded 33 points (11-20 FG, 6-10 3Pt, 5-7 FT), four assists and three rebounds across 39 minutes in Thursday's loss against the Hawks.
Powell once again made an impact offensively with a strong shooting performance and carried the Raptors from a scoring perspective. It was his third game with at least 30 points over his last four appearances and has surpassed the 20-point plateau in five of his last six contests, so he's clearly trending in the right direction. He's taking advantage of the fact that both Pascal Siakam and Fred VanVleet remain sidelined due to their COVID-19 diagnosis.
Powell provided 25 points (7-17 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 7-8 FT), four assists, two rebounds and two steals across 37 minutes Thursday in a 132-125 loss at Boston.
The 27-year-old entered Thursday's contest with 19 points across two previous games against the Celtics. And though the Raptors were without multiple starters due to COVID-19 protocols, they kept it close thanks to productive aid from Powell. He is now averaging 30.3 points across their past three games.
Powell posted 36 points (14-20 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, one assist and one steal during Wednesday's loss to Detroit.
Powell continued his impressive run lately by recording his second straight 30-point performance, this time capitalizing on Fred VanVleet's absence due to the COVID-19 protocols. Since entering the starting lineup permanently Jan. 22, Powell has averaged 23.0 points while shooting a fantastic 46.0 percent from three-point range. The UCLA product will look to keep things rolling when the Raptors travel to Boston on Thursday.
Powell and the Raptors won't play the Bulls on Sunday after the game was postponed due to positive COVID-19 test results and ongoing contact tracing among Toronto players and staff, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Toronto previously played Friday against Houston without head coach Nick Nurse and five of his assistants due to the NBA's health and safety protocols, but Pascal Siakam was the only player placed in the protocol at that time. Charania's latest report indicates that the Raptors wouldn't have the minimum eight players available for Sunday's game, so more members of the roster look destined to join Siakam in the protocol. The Raptors are next scheduled to play Tuesday against the Pistons, but that contest suddenly looks to be in jeopardy.
Powell dropped 30 points (10-15 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 6-6 FT), three rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal over 33 minutes in Friday's 122-111 win over the Rockets.
Powell stepped up his scoring when Kyle Lowry was out with an ankle injury. Since Lowry's return, Powell is still getting buckets, totaling 47 points in the two contests. He's now scored in double figures in 18 straight games, including two 30-point performances in his last five outings. He doesn't add much consistently in other areas of the box score but he's proven to be a reliable scorer this season and his 17.7 points per game are good for tops in his career.
Powell scored 17 points (6-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and contributed three assists, one rebound and one steal across 33 minutes in Wednesday's 116-108 loss to the Heat.
Even with Kyle Lowry returning to the lineup after a four-game absence, Powell was still able to score double-digit points for a 16th consecutive game. He saw increased opportunity over the last four games, averaging a team-high 23.7 points, but Powell should return to scoring in the teens more consistently with Lowry back. Powell is averaging 17.3 points and 2.4 threes per game this season -- both career highs -- and his 1.2 steals per game matches last season's career-best mark as well.
