Toronto Raptors shooting guard DeMar DeRozan went 9-of-16 from the field, racking up 33 points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists as the Raptors defeated the Portland Trail Blazers 112-106 on Sunday night. What It Means: With Kyle Lowry (ankle) out, DeRozan has really stepped up over the last two games, turning in 43 and 33 points in a pair of wins. He's averaging a career-high 27.7 points to go with 5.3 rebounds and 3.7 assists in 35.6 minutes per game on the year. DeRozan turned in a game-high 29.3 nERD in Sunday's win, which brings his season-long mark to 5.5 -- good for 24th in the...

Toronto Raptors Kyle Lowry (right wrist) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Portland Trail Blazers. What It Means: Lowry sat out Friday Night as well after suffering the injury on February 15. He played in the ALL-Star game last Sunday, making it seem like the injury is not too serious. However, it appears the wrist issue has a chance to linger with the point guard sitting out a few games down the stretch. Cory Joseph will start in his place. Joseph is projected for 13.1 points, 3.7 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 1.3 steals, and 25.3 fantasy points by our...

Toronto Raptors forward/center Serge Ibaka is starting on Friday versus the Boston Celtics. What It Means: Kyle Lowry (wrist) is out, so this won't provide an accurate barometer for what Ibaka's role will be on offense with his new team, but he should be active regardless. numberFire's metrics expect Ibaka to turn in 14.7 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 1.6 blocks in 30.1 minutes on Friday night.

Kyle Lowry will not play Sunday as the Raptors face the Blazers

Raptors' Kyle Lowry could sit out another game

Toronto Raptors Head Coach Dwane Casey said he is unsure how long guard Kyle Lowry (wrist) is going to be out, but that "it's not a one-day thing." What It Means: Lowry was icing his wrist on the sideline of the All Star Game and reportedly went golfing on Sunday, so it doesn't seem like the injury is too serious. However, considering Casey's comments, Lowry could miss another game or two. DeMar DeRozan and Cory Joseph will gain some value in fantasy if Lowry misses more time. Lowry is averaging a career-best 22.8 points to go with 4.8 rebounds, 6.9 assists and 1.4 steals over...

Watch: Lowry talks about his wrist injury

An update last night directly from Kyle Lowry. After last night’s game against the Celtics, Raptors star Kyle Lowry talked about the sore right wrist that kept him from playing. Here’s his take on the injury. To my mind, it doesn’t sound super serious, but the diagnosis remains a mystery. Watch: The Raptors play again tomorrow against the Portland Trail Blazers at 6pm. We’ll update you as it happens.

DeMar DeRozan scores career-high 43 points for Raptors

Toronto Raptors guard/forward DeMar DeRozan posted a career-high 43 points, adding five rebounds, five assists and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes during the 107-97 win against the Boston Celtics on Friday. What It Means: In his 517 minutes on the floor without Kyle Lowry (wrist), DeRozan has a whopping 41.4 usage rate, so he is looking at some massive output while Lowry is on the shelf. Despite the Raptors adding Serge Ibaka and P.J. Tucker, they are lower-usage players -- another positive for DeRozan. All the situational stars are aligning for DeRozan, and he's capturing the...

TORONTO — New talent helped the Toronto Raptors, though a familiar face pushed them over the finish line.Fresh off starting in last weekends All-Star Game, and with Kyle Lowry out with a right wrist injury, DeMar DeRozan scored a career-high 43 points to lead Toronto back from a 17-point deficit to a 107-97 victory over the Boston Celtics on Friday night.The absence of his fellow All-Star brought on a change in mindset for DeRozan, who shot 15 of 28 from the floor in surpassing the 42 points he had against Houston on March 30, 2015.It always changes, especially when hes not out there,...

DeRozan drops 43 as Raptors down Celtics, 107-97

The Raptors dig themselves out of a huge hole without Kyle Lowry, and beat the Celtics (again). It was the casual way coach Dwane Casey said it. Before the Raptors game against their natural rivals, the Boston Celtics, he was talking up the team’s newest acquisitions Serge Ibaka and P.J. Tucker. After the squad’s recent slide, the long wait to see them retake the court with their new look only heightened the excitement. Fans across Toronto were turned up. And then Casey dropped it: Kyle Lowry, three time All-Star and the team’s undisputed leader, would sit out against the Celtics...

Raptors starting Cory Joseph in place of Kyle Lowry (wrist)

Toronto Raptors point guard Cory Joseph will start for Kyle Lowry (wrist) against the Boston Celtics on Friday night. What It Means: Lowry could be looking at a multi-game absence, so Joseph could make for a decent short-term add in the meantime. He costs the minimum $3,500 on FanDuel Friday night, making Joseph a great DFS option versus the Celtics. With Lowry unavailable, our models believe Lowry will record 14.6 points, 4.4 assists, 4.1 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 2.3 3-pointers in 35.5 minutes on Friday. Source: Rotoworld.com

Kyle Lowry out tonight, possibly longer with wrist injury

Not the best news ahead of a crucial game. Cast away those post-deadline feelings of jubilation — Kyle Lowry will miss tonight’s game against the Boston Celtics and perhaps more than that with a right wrist injury, per Dwane Casey. “He hurt his wrist in the Charlotte game, it’s still, he had X-rays today or images today, he’s gonna get more images next week. So that’s a blow,” said Casey in his pre-game availability. “That’s a huge blow for us. But it’s an opportunity for Cory and Delon to step in and play. I don’t know how long he’s gonna be out. It’s not gonna...

Kyle Lowry (right wrist) unavailable for Raptors, doesn't have a timetable

Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry (right wrist) will not play against the Boston Celtics on Friday night. What It Means: Head coach Dwayne Casey said he doesn't know how long Lowry will be out. Cory Joseph will likely get the start in his place for tonight's matchup with the Celtics. DeMar DeRozan is going to be extremely active on offense for the Raptors. Without accounting for Lowry's absence, our models expect DeRozan to turn in 26.9 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.1 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.8 3-pointers versus Boston. Source: Rotoworld.com
