Toronto Raptors center Lucas Nogueira (concussion) will not play on Wednesday against the Philadelphia 76ers. What It Means: Nogueira remains in the concussion protocol after getting hit in the face on Tuesday night, causing him to experience blurred vision. He should be able to return this weekend for Toronto. Among Raptors players, numberFire's models like DeMarre Carroll as a nice value play on FanDuel tonight with his $4,200 price tag. We project him to record 13.2 points, 4.6 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.4 steals and 2.1 3-pointers in 32.4 minutes. Source:...

Numbers Game: The Bounce Back from Carroll and Valanciunas

Numbers Game: The Bounce Back from Carroll and Valanciunas

After a rough stretch, a couple of key players have helped return the Raptors to their winning ways. After last week’s column on the difficult schedule and injury situation the Raptors faced, how that was a big part of why the team was struggling, and how that was about to ease up in a big way, along came the past three games. After a statement comeback win against Boston and two blowout wins against less impressive Atlantic division teams, the Raptors are back. There are also a couple of players turning their seasons around at the same time. Let’s take a look. DeMarre Carroll Carroll...

Brooklyn puts up spirited fight against Toronto Raptors but the Net result is another loss to one of the East Conference powerbrokers

Two minutes into that final 12 minutes the Raptors' lead, which was just one after three quarters, was up to 16 as the Raptors small lineup with Lucas Nogueira at the five, DeMarre Carroll at the four, Terrence Ross at small forward and the double point guard backcourt of Kyle Lowry and Cory Joseph simply shut the Nets down on their way to an easier than it felt 132-113 win.

Raptors-Rockets: Searching for answers

- Liked the move to start Norman Powell against the Houston Rockets and would be in favour of it being used more frequently, with DeMarre Carroll, who might have had his best game as a Raptor, or close to it, shifting to power forward. Obviously, that permutation won't work against traditional, old-school power forwards, but most teams don't featur

Lucas Nogueira plays only 13 minutes off the bench in Raptors' defeat

Toronto Raptors forward/center Lucas Nogueira played only 13 minutes off the bench on Sunday, racking up 4 points, 4 rebounds, 1 steal and 1 block in a 129-122 loss to the Houston Rockets. What It Means: Nogueira had started two-straight games before this one, but saw his workload shrink dramatically as the Raptors decided to go small, starting DeMarre Carroll at power forward, to match up with Houston. Nogueira will likely continue to see plenty of work against teams with more size in the front-court. Nogueira has been excellent this season, and leads the team with a .674 true...
