Raptors' C.J. Miles: Questionable for Wednesday
Miles (hip) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Celtics, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
Miles missed Sunday's game against the Wizards due to a hip injury, but it sounds like he could return for Wednesday's contest. Look for his status to clear up closer to game-time. Even if Miles is cleared to play, he doesn't figure to factor heavily immediately into Toronto's rotation.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' OG Anunoby: Won't play Wednesday
Anunoby will not play in Wednesday's game against the Celtics due to personal reasons, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
The specifics of Anunoby's absence aren't known at this time, but the second-year swingman is currently away from the team. With Anunoby out, the Raptors will likely lean on Norman Powell for additional minutes on the wing Wednesday.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Fred VanVleet: Questionable vs. Celtics
VanVleet (thigh) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Celtics, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
VanVleet was held out of Sunday's game against the Wizards after suffering a bruised thigh Friday, and his status remains up in the air. If VanVleet is unable to give it a go Wednesday, Delon Wright would operate as the backup point guard again for Toronto.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Danny Green: Nice line in double-OT win
Green delivered 16 points (5-12 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, two steals and two blocks across 42 minutes Sunday in the Raptors' 140-138 double-overtime win over the Wizards.
The high minutes total inflated Green's numbers, but the starting shooting guard nonetheless continued his improved form of late. Over his past four outings, Green is averaging 12.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.0 three-pointers, 1.8 steals, 1.3 blocks and 1.3 assists in 31.5 minutes per contest. It's hard to bank on him keeping it up much longer, however, as the defensive statistics amount to major outliers from his career marks, while his 53.1 percent and 54.5 percent marks from the field and three-point range aren't sustainable either....

Raptors' Delon Wright: Thrives again off bench
Wright finished with 17 points (7-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block across 22 minutes Sunday in the Raptors' 140-138 double-overtime victory over the Wizards.
With Fred VanVleet (thigh) sitting out, Wright enjoyed an enhanced role on the second unit and reached double digits in the scoring column for the fourth time in six games. Though he's attracted some attention in deeper settings with his recent production, Wright probably won't warrant much appeal in shallower leagues unless VanVleet's injury proves to be a longer-term concern....

Raptors' Kyle Lowry: Grabs 13th double-double
Lowry scored 12 points (4-15 FG, 2-10 3Pt, 2-3 FT) while adding 11 assists, five rebounds and two steals in 50 minutes during Sunday's 140-138 double-overtime win over the Wizards.
Despite his poor shooting, Lowry still delivered his 13th double-double of the season, and first since returning from a back injury. The 32-year-old is close to averaging a double-double for the first time in his career, but he'll need to stay healthy in the second half to pull it off.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Pascal Siakam: Huge double-double in OT win
Siakam scored 24 points (9-16 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-6 FT) while adding 19 rebounds, three steals, two assists and two blocks in 44 minutes during Sunday's 140-138 double-overtime win over the Wizards.
He dominated the glass all afternoon until fouling out on a very questionable call in the second OT period. Siakam now has nine double-doubles on the season, with five of them coming in the last eight games -- a stretch during which he's averaging 19.1 points, 9.6 board and, 3.3 assists.... See More ...

Raptors' Kawhi Leonard: Leads way in OT win
Leonard scored a team-high 41 points (15-29 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 8-9 FT) while adding 11 rebounds, five assists, three steals and two blocks in 45 minutes during Sunday's 140-138 double-overtime win over the Wizards.
The Raptors are off until Wednesday, and Leonard and the rest of the starters will need the rest after this one. He's scored at least 20 points in 19 straight games, a streak dating back to late November, and the 27-year-old continues to put together a career-best season in his first campaign with Toronto....

Raptors' Fred VanVleet: Out Sunday vs. Wizards
VanVleet (thigh) won't play in Sunday's game against the Wizards, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
VanVleet bruised his thigh in Friday's game against the Nets, leading to his absence Sunday. In his absence look for Delon Wright and Jordan Loyd to see some extra time. VanVleet's next chance to play will be Wednesday against the Celtics.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' C.J. Miles: Ruled out
Miles (hip) will not play Sunday against the Wizards, Fred Katz of The Athletic reports.
Miles was considered doubtful coming into the day, so this doesn't come as much of a surprise. The veteran wing played seven minutes in Friday's game against Brooklyn after being a DNP-CD in three straight contests.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' C.J. Miles: Doubtful Sunday
Miles (hip) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Wizards, Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun reports.
Miles played just seven minutes Friday coming off a hip injury, and it appears he aggravated things. Assuming he's out Sunday, Norman Powell should see extra run.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Fred VanVleet: Questionable Sunday
VanVleet (thigh) is questionable for Sunday's tilt with the Wizards, Josh Lewenberg of TSN.ca reports.
VanVleet appears to have suffered a bruised thigh during Friday's game against Brooklyn. If he can't go, look for Delon Wright and Jordan Loyd to get a boost in minutes.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Delon Wright: Full line in Friday's win
Wright recorded 12 points (5-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, three steals, and two assists in 23 minutes during Friday's 122-105 win over the Nets.
Wright finished with a season high steal total. He has scored in double figures in three of the last five games, a feat he has accomplished only once prior this season. Unsurprisingly, the three double-digit scoring efforts during this recent stretch all took place on nights when Wright saw at least 20 minutes. Given the team's overwhelming depth, Wright's value isn't likely to extend beyond deep leagues.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Danny Green: Little bit of everything in win
Green registered eight points (2-4 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, three steals, two rebounds, and two blocks in 25 minutes during Friday's 122-105 win over the Nets.
Green was quiet in the scoring column, but he filled up the box score in every category. It's the third time he has swiped three steals this season, the fourth time he has dished at least four dimes, and his ninth showing with at least two swats. Green doesn't provide gaudy stat lines on a regular basis, but as evidenced by Friday's tilt, he usually offers a little bit of everything.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Fred VanVleet: Dishes six assists in Friday's win
VanVleet posted 10 points (3-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt), six assists, two rebounds, and one steal in 19 minutes during Friday's 122-105 win over the Nets.
VanVleet returned to a reserve role for this one, though he still found a way to contribute a quality stat line. VanVleet stepped up in a big way while Kyle Lowry was sidelined for six games by a back injury, and the 24-year-old point guard has been a steady source of scoring and assists all season. VanVleet's efficiency has dipped compared to last year, but his counting stats and minutes have both risen considerably.... See More ... See Less
