Boucher tallied11 points (4-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-6 FT), four blocked shots, two rebounds and two steals across 20 minutes in Sunday's 105-91 loss to the Bulls.
With Marc Gasol, Pascal Siakam and Serge Ibaka all resting, Boucher was a logical choice to start on Sunday. He's going to be buried behind this trio for the duration of the season, and barring some freak injury ahead of him, he shouldn't be considered in any format at this juncture.
Boucher, due to personal reasons, will not participate in the FIBA World Cup, Michael Grange of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Boucher posted 93 points, 56 rebounds, 24 blocks, six steals and two assists in 163 minutes with Toronto last season. The World Cup could have acted as an opportunity to develop his game, but he has to attend to other matters.
Boucher registered 24 points (6-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 10-12 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and a blocked shot across 29 minutes during Friday's 108-102 loss to the Sixers in the consolation bracket of the Las Vegas Summer League.
Boucher is looking for more opportunity with Toronto after playing 28 games in limited action (5.8 mpg).The Raptors are stacked at center, but Boucher was frequently employed at the three and four spots during his Vegas tenure, so they may be considering stretching his 6-10 frame into a wing role to help offset the loss of Kawhi Leonard.
Boucher totaled 23 points (7-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 7-8 FT), seven rebounds, two blocks, one steal and an assist across 28 minutes in the Raptors' 85-73 win over the Knicks on Tuesday in the Las Vegas Summer League.
Boucher led the Raptors in scoring on Tuesday and added some quality numbers across the board for a big final stat line. He was serviceable in his brief appearances with Toronto last season, and he'll enter 2019-20 behind Marc Gasol and Serge Ibaka on the depth chart.
Boucher will play for the Raptors during summer league, Steven Loung of SportsNet reports.
Boucher spent most of last season in the G League, but still managed to appear in 28 games for the Raptors. Across 168 total minutes, he racked up 93 points, 56 rebounds, 24 blocks, six steals and two assists.
Boucher (back) is available to play Wednesday versus Milwaukee, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
As expected, Boucher, who has been out since April 13 nursing a back injury, will be ready to take the court if needed for Game 1 of the 2019 Eastern Conference Finals on Wednesday against Milwaukee.
The Raptors list Boucher (back) as probable Wednesday for Game 1 of the team's Eastern Conference Finals series with the Bucks.
Though Boucher has seemingly moved past the back issue that kept him unavailable for much of the Raptors' seven-game second-round series with Philadelphia, he's not a lock to be active Wednesday. Boucher has yet to make a postseason appearance and isn't a fixture in coach Nick Nurse's rotation even when healthy.
Boucher (back) won't play in Game 7 on Sunday against Philadelphia.
Boucher will unsurprisingly remain out for the last contest of the series. He hasn't taken the court since April 9 due to back spasms.
Boucher (back) is listed as out for Thursday's Game 6 in Philadelphia.
Boucher has been battling back spasms since Game 3 of the Raptors' first-round series. Even if he ever is deemed fit to play again, Boucher is not expected to play much of a role this postseason.
Boucher (back) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's Game 5 against Philadelphia, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
Boucher has been battling back spasms over the last few weeks, and while he may return to availability Tuesday, he's unlikely to be much of a factor in the game plan.
Boucher (back) will not play during Thursday's Game 3 against Philadelphia, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
Boucher has yet to appear in a postseason game as he continues to deal with back spasms. That said, he likely wouldn't see time even if he was healthy, as Marc Gasol and Serge Ibaka have the center position locked down.
Boucher (back), despite being healthy, is being deemed inactive for Saturday's Game 1 against the 76ers, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
It was unlikely Boucher would see significant minutes anyway. So, this decision doesn't affect the Raptors' rotation.
Boucher (back) is listed as available for Game 1 on Saturday, Eric Koreen of The Athletic reports.
Boucher, who's been dealing with back spasms, will be able to play Saturday. That said, he didn't see the floor in Round 1 will likely only be allotted minutes in a blowout.
Boucher (back) is questionable for Saturday's Game 1 against the 76ers, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
Boucher has yet to take the floor in the playoffs, though not entirely due to injury. Chances are, he'll likely only see minutes in the case of a blowout, as Marc Gasol and Serge Ibaka figure to hold down the center spot for the remainder of the year.
Boucher (back) won't play Tuesday in Game 5 against the Magic.
Boucher hasn't taken the court in four games, so the fact that he's unavailable for Tuesday's clash isn't surprising at this point. Even when healthy this season, Boucher hasn't managed to contribute much for Toronto.
Boucher is out for Friday's Game 3 against the Magic due to back spasms, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
Boucher hasn't played in the playoff so far, so this news shouldn't affect things for the Raptors. His next chance to take the floor arrives during Sunday's Game 4.
Boucher scored 15 points (7-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt) while adding 13 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 25 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's 120-100 win over the Timberwolves.
Seeing the biggest workload of his brief NBA career to date for a Raptors squad giving key players some rest before the playoffs, Boucher produced his first career double-double. The 26-year-old would need a couple of injuries in the Toronto frontcourt to see any meaningful action in the postseason, however.
Boucher posted 33 points (12-20 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 5-5 FT), seven rebounds, three blocks, two assists and a steal in the loss Friday to Long Island in the second round of the G League playoffs.
Boucher bounced between the NBA and G League for much of the season, finishing the 2018-19 campaign with 27.2 points, 11.4 rebounds, 4.1 blocks, 1.2 steals and 1.1 blocks in 28 games with Raptors 905. One of the premiere centers in the G League currently, Boucher will likely have a significant opportunity to join a 15-man NBA roster next season
Boucher was assigned to the G League on Thursday, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
The Raptors 905 are looking to earn a first-round bye in a season-ending back-to-back at the Lakeland Magic on Friday and Saturday, so they'll need the services of Boucher.
Boucher was recalled from the G League's Raptors 905 prior to Toronto's 113-98 loss to the Magic on Sunday. He played three minutes off the bench and missed his only shot attempt (a three-pointer) while failing to accrue any statistics.
The Raptors converted Boucher's two-way deal into a multi-year contract shortly after the trade deadline, so it's likely the second-year center will spent more extensive time at the NBA level the rest of the way. However, it doesn't mean he'll be included in the rotation on most occasions, as coach Nick Nurse is comfortable with Serge Ibaka and Marc Gasol absorbing all the minutes at center in competitive contests.
