Raptors' Norman Powell: Appears to have edge for starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Raptors head coach Dwane Casey hinted Tuesday that Powell may receive the starting nod at small forward in Thursday's season opener against the Bulls, Eric Koreen of The Athletic Toronto reports.

The Raptors aren't expected to reveal their lineup until game day, but for now, Powell seems to have the edge on the starting role after Casey heaped praise on C.J. Miles, Powell's chief competition, for his leadership skills on the second unit during the preseason. As the superior outside shooting threat of the two, Miles may prove to be a better fit as a scoring spark plug off the bench, whereas the long-armed Powell gives the top unit a defensive upgrade. Regardless of which player ultimately settles into a starting role, Powell and Miles' minutes counts could both be dictated based by matchups from game to game.

Raptors' Lucas Nogueira: Averages 11.1 minutes through this preseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nogueira averaged 11.1 minutes through four games during this preseason.

During the 2016-17 season, Nogueira averaged a career-high 19.1 minutes and 1.6 blocks. He's likely in line for limited minutes this season since Serge Ibaka and Pascal Siakam are ahead of him on the depth chart, but the 25-year-old is still a decent option in deeper formats for blocks.

Raptors' Bruno Caboclo: Scores two points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Caboclo gathered two points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and one rebound across five minutes during Friday's preseason game against the Bulls.

Caboclo played in only nine games for the Raptors during the 2016-17 season, spending the rest of that time in the D-League. If he makes the official 15-man roster, the 22-year-old will likely play a minor role for the Raptors since they added C.J. Miles over the summer, despite losing P.J Tucker and trading away Demarre Carroll this offseason.

Raptors' Jonas Valanciunas: Double-double in Friday's preseason finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Valanciunas scored 11 points (5-8 FG, 1-1 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, two blocks and an assist in 23 minutes during Friday's preseason win over the Bulls.

The big man appears to be more than ready for the regular season, which will begin for the Raptors next Thursday at home against the Bulls once again. Valanciunas is a nightly double-double threat when his court time isn't undercut by the Raptors going with a smaller lineup, but his overall production is likely to remain vaguely disappointing.

Raptors' C.J. Miles: Pours in six treys Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miles scored 27 points (9-14 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding three rebounds and a steal in 20 minutes off the bench during Friday's preseason win over the Bulls.

Raptors coach Dwane Casey hasn't yet announced whether Miles or Normal Powell will be his starting small forward to begin the regular season, but Miles' dead-eye shooting Friday indicates he would be very comfortable as the top scoring option on the second unit. From a fantasy standpoint, Miles' value won't change much regardless of his role, as he should still see the same amount of court time and offer little more than three-point shooting and the occasional steal.
