Boucher recorded 31 points (10-16 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 5-7 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists, a steal and a blocked shot across 35 minutes in Sunday's 112-106 win over the Thunder.
Boucher went basket-for-basket with Luguentz Dort in the first quarter, and the shootout with his fellow Montreal native began Boucher's brilliant evening. The myriad of Toronto absences has allowed Boucher to let loose in a starting role, which is arguably where he should have been all along. Boucher will try to replicate his standout performance Wednesday night against the Nets, who are scrambling to fill the hole left by LaMarcus Aldridge's retirement.
Boucher tallied 11 points (3-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-5 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 31 minutes during Friday's 113-102 win over the Spurs.
The Raptors were without Pascal Siakam (rest), OG Anunoby (rest) and Gary Trent (ankle) on Friday, but it did not affect Boucher's production. The 28-year-old's box score nearly matched his season averages of 13.5 points, 6.6 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.9 blocks. Boucher also earned five trips to the free-throw line, the most in his last six games.
Boucher went for 17 points (6-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 14 rebounds and four blocks across 30 minutes in Sunday's loss at the Knicks.
Boucher dominated the glass and the rim protection in this game, but he was also productive on the offensive end since he registered at least 15 points for the third time over his last four appearances. As a result, he now has two double-doubles over his last three appearances. The former Oregon product has started in each of Toronto's last six games and is averaging 16.8 points, 9.0 rebounds and 2.3 blocks per game during that span.
Boucher scored 38 points (14-24 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 7-8 FT) and added 19 rebounds, one steal, one blocked shot and one assist across 36 minutes Thursday in a 122-113 loss to Chicago.
Toronto had only eight players available for the contest, putting plenty of weight on Boucher and Pascal Siakam to carry the load against the Bulls. The pair combined for 65 points, with Boucher finishing with career-best marks in minutes, points and boards. The double-double was Boucher's ninth of the campaign and first since March 28.
Boucher recorded 19 points (7-16 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 4-5 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and one steal in 33 minutes during Tuesday's 110-101 loss to the Lakers.
Tuesday marked Boucher's first game with at least 19 points since March 17, where he recorded 21 points against the Pistons. Tuesday's game also marked his best rebounding performance since March 28, where he grabbed 11 boards against the Trail Blazers. Unfortunately for fantasy managers, Boucher's performances have been inconsistent. He struggles to put together several great games in a row, and coach Nick Nurse doesn't give him a consistent workload, either.
Boucher scored eight points (3-12 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT) to go along with five rebounds, three blocks, two steals and one assist across 20 minutes in Monday's win over the Wizards.
Boucher struggled mightily with his shot, particularly from beyond the arc. However, he continued to rack up defensive stats and has now combined to record six steals and five blocks across his last two games. Despite that strong production, Boucher is stuck in an inconsistent role, and therefore struggles to reliably produce any stats besides blocks in the box score.
Boucher will start Friday's game against the Warriors.
Boucher is making his first start since March 17. In his three starts this season, he's averaged 12.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 2.3 blocks in 26.3 minutes.
Boucher had 18 points (6-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT), 11 rebounds and one block in Sunday night's loss to the Trail Blazers.
Boucher came off the bench behind Aron Baynes, but he vastly outpaced the veteran, notching his first double-double since Feb. 10. The Oregon product added one block in his 24 minutes, giving him at least one swat in nine of his last 10 games.
Boucher had 16 points (6-10 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds and two blocks in Friday's loss to the Jazz.
Returning to the bench after making a spot start Wednesday at Detroit, Boucher's minutes total took a hit (20 minutes), but he still managed multiple blocks for the fourth time in five games. Over his last seven games, Boucher is averaging 21.0 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.0 swats.
Boucher will move back to the bench for Friday's game against the Jazz, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
Boucher moved into the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Pistons, finishing with 21 points, five rebounds, three assists and four blocks in 29 minutes. But with OG Anunoby returning to action, the Raptors will revert back to their previous alignment with Pascal Siakam at center. Boucher's role could take a slight hit, but he still has plenty of upside in DFS contests.
Boucher racked up 21 points (10-16 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 0-1 FT), five rebounds, four blocks and three assists in 29 minutes during Wednesday's 116-112 loss to Detroit.
Boucher replaced Aron Baynes in the starting lineup and certainly made the most of his opportunity. Despite making only three starts in 40 games and playing just 24.2 minutes per night, Boucher has delivered major fantasy value this season, averaging 14.3 points with 1.6 threes, 6.5 rebounds and 2.0 blocks. Of course, as you might expect from a guy who largely comes off the bench, there's been some inconsistency along the way.
Boucher will start Wednesday's game against the Pistons, Josh Lewenberg of TSN reports.
Raptors fans and fantasy managers alike have been clamoring for Boucher to grab hold of the center spot, but he's only made two starts in 39 appearances. Even so, the rangy big man has still managed to be plenty productive off the bench as a scorer, rebounder and shot-blocker. In his two previous starts, Boucher averaged a modest 8.0 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in 25.0 minutes.
Boucher logged 17 points (7-12 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot across 26 minutes in Sunday's 118-95 loss to the Bulls.
Boucher continues to be a popular fantasy target off the bench for Toronto. He usually enters with the second unit and proceeds to outscore teammate Aron Baynes, but coach Nick Nurse prefers to keep the Oregon product in a reserve role, despite his excellent counting stats. Even with the limitation, the center continues to produce and is an every-night fantasy consideration.
Boucher (lips) is not on the injury report for Sunday's game against the Bulls, Aaron Rose of SI.com reports.
Boucher had to get three stitches in his lip following Saturday's loss to Charlotte, but he's not going to have to miss any time in connection with the issue. Boucher should continue to have an increased role with numerous players in the league's health and safety protocols.
Boucher received three stitches in his lip after Saturday's 114-104 loss to the Hornets, Aaron Rose of SI.com reports.
The 28-year-old played 32 minutes and had 16 points (4-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 8-9 FT), six rebounds, three blocks and two assists, but he didn't finish the contest unscathed. It's unclear if the injury will affect Boucher's availability for the second half of the back-to-back set Sunday at Chicago.
Boucher had 29 points (10-15 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 7-8 FT), nine rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks across 30 minutes off the bench in Thursday's loss against the Hawks.
Boucher might have come off the bench for a depleted Raptors team that's dealing with the effects of a COVID-19 outbreak, but the big man still found a way to make a massive impact on both ends of the floor -- he ended just one rebound shy of a double-double while also scoring the second-highest point total in the team. Boucher also scored 30 points in his most recent game before the All-Star break and continues to be a massive weapon in the Raptors' second unit.
Boucher had 30 points (11-15 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and five rebounds Thursday in a 132-125 loss at Boston.
The absence of several key Raptors players allowed Boucher to shine. He logged career highs in points, field-goals made and three-pointers made off 35 minutes from the bench. Boucher will not post elite scoring lines consistently but offers significant fantasy value that makes him a must-have on rosters.
Boucher posted 18 points (5-11 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 7-9 FT), eight rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal during Wednesday's loss to Detroit.
After starting against Houston last Friday, Boucher returned to his usual bench role and posted his best offensive performance since Feb. 6. It was the center's fourth outing with at least 10 points over the past five games. He's now averaging 13.1 points, 1.6 threes, 6.5 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game -- by far his best stats in his four NBA seasons.
Boucher will come off the bench versus the Pistons on Wednesday.
The 28-year-old started in place of Pascal Siakam (COVID-19 protocols) on Friday, but he'll come off the bench Wednesday despite Siakam still being sidelined. Aron Baynes will start at center for Toronto, so Boucher should still see plenty of minutes with the team missing five players due to the league's health and safety protocols.
Boucher 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.
