Toupane has missed the Bucks' last 13 games with an oblique muscle strain. In the eight games he's played this season, the 28-year-old has averaged 1.8 points and 0.8 rebounds. His injury will not have an impact on the team's rotation against the Wizards.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toupane (oblique) will not play in Tuesday's game against the Nets.

Toupane hasn't played since April 9 and is nowhere near the regular rotation, so his continued absence won't carry any true implications.

Bucks' Axel Toupane: Joining Milwaukee on two-way pact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toupane is expected to sign a two-way contract with the Bucks, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

The 28-year-old spent camp with Golden State but was waived after seeing minimal playing time throughout the preseason. Toupane appeared in nine games for the Santa Cruz Warriors in the G League bubble this season and averaged 17.9 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.7 steals in 31.7 minutes. He hasn't seen NBA action since making four appearances between the Bucks and Pelicans during the 2016-17 campaign.

Axel Toupane: Tough shooting in playoff loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toupane recorded 13 points (3-17 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 3-5 FT), 10 rebounds and five assists across 39 minutes in Tuesday's 108-96 playoff loss to G League Lakeland.

Toupane managed to put up a double-double in his second straight game, but his struggles as a shooter were evident, especially from beyond the arc. Overall, the 28-year-old was efficient in the G League bubble, connecting on 54.4 percent of his field goals and averaging 17.9 points, 8.0 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toupane recorded 24 points (10-13 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 11 rebounds and three assists across 24 minutes in Monday's 110-81 playoff win over G League Rio Grande.

Toupane missed the regular-season finale with a lower-leg injury that has been lingering all year. The 28-year-old guard was back to his typical form in the playoff win, leading the G League squad in both points and rebounds. During the regular season, Toupane averaged 17.9 points, 8.0 rebounds and 3.3 assists per contest.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toupane (lower leg) didn't play in Saturday's 113-103 win over G League Oklahoma City.

Toupane missed time last week with an ankle injury before returning for Tuesday's win over G League Erie. It appears his current injury is related. The 28-year-old has averaged 17.9 points, 8.0 rebounds and 3.3 assists per contest this year. He'll try to return to his starting role for Monday's playoff game.

March 4, 2021 10:24 AM

Axel Toupane: Dealing with ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toupane (ankle) didn't play in Sunday's win over G League Austin.

Toupane missed time earlier in February with a leg injury, so perhaps this injury is related. It's uncertain how long he'll be out. The 28-year-old is a fixture in the starting five, averaging 17.0 points, 8.6 rebounds and 3.4 assists per contest.

February 21, 2021 10:40 PM
Axel Toupane: Impressive in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toupane (leg) didn't play in Saturday's G League win over Westchester.

Toupane posted a double-double in each of the first two games with the Santa Cruz Warriors, but he was unavailable Saturday due to a leg injury. Once he's healthy again, he should immediately return to the starting five.

Axel Toupane: Registers double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toupane posted 14 points (5-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 10 rebounds and two assists in Wednesday's 109-104 win over G League Ignite.

Toupane last played in the NBA or the G League in the 2016-17 campaign. He seemingly is picking up where he left off, producing a double-double in the season opener. The 28-year-old led the team in minutes as well, so it looks like he'll be in the starting five going forward.

Axel Toupane: Waived by Warriors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toupane was waived by the Warriors on Friday.

Toupane played 15 preseason minutes, totaling five rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal. He may end up in the G League with the Santa Cruz Warriors.

Warriors' Axel Toupane: Joins Golden State for camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toupane agreed Tuesday with the Warriors on an Exhibit 10 contract, Johnny Askounis of Eurohoops.net reports.

For his career, Toupane has logged 25 regular-season appearances between the Nuggets, Bucks and Pelicans, but he hasn't seen any NBA action since the 2016-17 campaign. Unless the 28-year-old is surprisingly able to win a spot on the Warriors' opening-night roster, expect him to return overseas when he's eventually cut during training camp.

Axel Toupane: Let go by Pelicans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toupane was waived by the Pelicans on Tuesday.

Toupane played in four NBA games last season -- two with Milwaukee and two with New Orleans. In those four appearances, the 24-year old posted 2.8 points on 55.6 percent shooting across 11.8 minutes per game. He spent most of the 2016-17 campaign in the D-League, however, with the Raptors 905. In 36 outings with the 905, Toupane averaged 16.1 points, 4.1 boards, 3.6 assists and 1.1 steals across 27.6 minutes per game while hitting 46.3 percent of his looks from the field and 34.6 percent of his shots from deep.

Pelicans' Axel Toupane: Plays 21 minutes in team debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toupane tallied three points (1-4 FG, 1-3 3Pt) and one block across 21 minutes in a 108-96 loss to the Lakers on Tuesday.

Making his team debut for the Pelicans, Toupane immediately slotted in as the main backup to starting small forward Solomon Hill. With the Pelicans potentially down five players for the season finale Wednesday against the Trail Blazers, Toupane could end up seeing a similar workload off the bench in the second half of the back-to-back set.

Pelicans' Axel Toupane: Signing with Pelicans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toupane signed a contract with the Pelicans on Saturday, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.

Toupane had a brief stint with the Bucks earlier this season, but he's spent the bulk of the year with the Raptors 905 of the D-League. In 36 games for the 905, Toupane averaged 16.1 points, 4.1 rebounds and 3.6 assists while shooting 46.3 percent from the floor and 34.6 percent from three. The details of the deal with New Orleans have not been released, but Toupane will remain with the team through the end of the regular season, and it's unclear if he'll be a part of the organization throughout the summer.
