Powell is set to come off the bench for Friday's preseason game against the Nets, Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun reports.
Fred VanVleet draws the start at shooting guard, and it would appear that he'll begin the regular season in that role with Powell coming off the bench. Powell averaged 8.6 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.5 assists over 60 games a year ago.
Powell (rest) will play in Friday's preseason game against the Nets.
Powell was held out of Sunday's contest to get him some rest, but the Raptors will allow him to see action in the team's final preseason matchup Friday evening.
Powell will be rested for Sunday's game against the Bulls, Steven Loung of Sportsnet reports.
The Raptors will rest a number of regulars, so several bench players could be in position for a significant increase in minutes.
Powell scored 22 points (7-11 FG, 5-7 3PT, 3-3 FT) in Thursday's preseason game against the Rockets.
Powell made another start in the backcourt alongside Fred VanVleet, though it's unclear which of those two will hold onto that spot once Kyle Lowry (thumb) is back in action. Thus far, Powell has acquitted himself well, hitting seven threes over the course of the Raptors' two exhibitions in China.
Powell totaled 18 points (6-18 FG, 4-13 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five rebounds, three assists and a steal across 32 minutes in the Raptors' win over the Bucks on Tuesday.
Powell finished with 18 points, hitting four triples in Tuesday's win. He was extremely aggressive, jacking up 18 shots and 13 threes, both easily his most attempts in the playoffs. Powell has been very involved in the offense as of late, averaging 17 points in 29 minutes in the Raptors' last three games. Expect the usage to continue with his recent productivity.
Powell ended with 19 points (7-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 30 minutes during Sunday's 118-112 victory over Milwaukee.
Powell put in another strong offensive game Sunday, coming away with 19 points on 7-of-13 shooting. With Kyle Lowry, Fred VanVleet, and Danny Green all struggling, it was Powell who provided some much-needed offense off the bench. That makes two nice outings for Powell who continues to push for more playing time. The Raptors will be hoping he can maintain his recent form heading into Game 4 as they look to level things up at 2-2.
Powell tallied 14 points (6-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt), four rebounds, and two assists in 25 minutes during Friday's 125-103 loss to Milwaukee.
On what was a disappointing night for the Raptors, Powell at least showed signs of life, ending with 14 points including a pair of three-pointers. He has outplayed Danny Green in both Game 1 and 2 and there is certainly a case for him to be seeing more court time, perhaps even sliding into the starting lineup. Whatever happens, the Raptors are going to need a lot more from anyone not named Kawhi Leonard if they are to get a look at reaching the NBA Finals.
Powell finished with 16 points (7-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds and one assist across 21 minutes during the Raptors' 107-85 win over the Magic in Game 4 of their Eastern Conference first-round playoff series Sunday.
Powell got hot from the field in his second-unit role, leading to his best scoring tally of the series' first four games. The 25-year-old struggled mightily with his shot during the first pair of contests against the Magic, going 3-for-14 from the field, including 1-for-8 from distance. However, he's bounced back to drain 10 of 14 attempts over the last pair of games, and his contributions off the bench could be key again in Game 5.
Powell posted 23 points (7-7 FG, 4-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one steal across 21 minutes in Sunday's 117-109 win over the Heat.
Powell could not miss Sunday, hitting four threes and collecting more points than he did minutes in the game. He could prove to be an offensive spark plug for the Raptors in the postseason, something they have often lacked off the bench in the past.
Powell provided 20 points (8-10 FG, 4-5 3Pt), three rebounds, and three assists in 26 minutes during Tuesday's 112-103 win over the Bulls.
Powell has scored exactly 20 points twice across the last seven games while going for double figures five times. However, he has also been held scoreless twice during that same stretch, showcasing his inconsistency. Still, he could be in line to earn decent minutes once again during the next two matchups (Knicks on Thursday, Bulls on Saturday) if coach Nick Nurse continues to play the reserve unit as much as he did in this one.
Powell finished with 20 points (7-14 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block across 24 minutes in the Raptors' win over the Lakers on Thursday.
Powell had a great performance in Thursday's win, scoring the second-most points on his team behind Kawhi Leonard (25). Powell offers little outside of scoring, but his streaky point totals make him a good daily punt play.
Powell tallied 15 points (4-7 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four assists and two rebounds in 24 minutes during Sunday's win over the Heat.
Normal finished with his highest points total since January 6th, tying a season-best with three made threes in the process. The fourth-year guard's playing a vital role off the bench for the Raptors, and is now averaging 8.0 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 18.4 minutes per contest this season.
Powell will start Wednesday against the Wizards.
Kawhi Leonard is nursing a sore knee and won't play Wednesday, so coach Nick Nurse will give Norman Powell the nod at shooting guard, while shifting Danny Green up to small forward. In two previous starts this season, Powell has averaged 7.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 25.5 minutes.
Powell put up 14 points (5-14 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three assists and one rebound in 16 minutes Saturday in the Raptors' 104-99 win over the Knicks.
The Raptors shipped out two of their depth wings in Delon Wright and C.J. Miles prior to Thursday's deadline, so Powell should have a fairly clear path to minutes in the teens the rest of the way. He's been riding high at the moment with double-digit scoring efforts in three straight games, but that production has come with few peripheral statistics. Powell is still a better fit in deeper formats that leagues with 14 teams or fewer.
Powell finished with 12 points (4-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two assists, one rebound and one block across 20 minutes in Wednesday's 110-106 loss to the Pacers.
Powell shot 50 percent from three off the bench Wednesday night, an effort that certainly helped lift his team in the absence of Kawhi Leonard (rest). Powell can't be trusted to receive regular minutes, especially when Kawhi returns, but his hot stroke from three off the bench allows him to maintain his role of a bench scorer.
Powell pitched in 14 points (6-7 FG, 2-2 3Pt), four assists, three steals, and one rebound in 19 minutes during Saturday's 119-90 win over the Grizzlies.
Powell has reached double figures in scoring in eight of the last 15 games, this after doing so in only one of his first 11 appearances this season. Powell also swiped a season high steal total while matching his season high in assists. The depth of talent along the wing makes it difficult to rely on Powell on a nightly basis, but he does seem to be re-establishing himself as a key bench player.
Powell totaled 23 points (10-12 FG, 3-3 3Pt), two rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 32 minutes during Sunday's 121-105 victory over Indiana.
Powell set a season-high in scoring with 23 points Sunday, going 10-of-12 from the field including a perfect 3-of-3 from the perimeter. Powell has been working his way back into the rotation of late and although still not a standard league player, could be considered in deeper formats. This type of shooting is unlikely to stick, however, he can provide value in points and steals.
Powell generated 14 points (6-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt) and finished with three rebounds, an assist and two blocks over 22 minutes Tuesday against Utah.
Powell hasn't done much this season off the bench for the Raptors, averaging 5.6 ppg and 2.1 rpg over 16 contests. He's done little to warrant more playing time of late, so he's simply not worth rostering in the majority of league formats unless that changes.
Powell (personal) isn't listed on the Raptors' injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Bulls.
Powell's absence from the report implies that he has rejoined the Raptors and will be available Sunday after missing the team's previous game Friday in Orlando. He'll likely have a role as a second-unit wing and doesn't project to handle significant minutes in most games unless starters Kawhi Leonard or Danny Green miss time with an injury.
Powell is dealing with a personal issue and won't be available for Friday's game against the Magic, Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun reports.
The next opportunity for Powell to return will be Sunday against the Bulls. C.J. Miles will likely be the beneficiary of added minutes during Powell's absence.
