Toronto Raptors center Lucas Nogueira (concussion) and forward/center Patrick Patterson (knee) will not play against the Charlotte Hornets on Friday night. What It Means: Patterson has only played twice this month while Nogueira will miss his second consecutive game. Jared Sullinger is still playing on a strict minutes limit, but look for Jonas Valanciunas to continue his strong play. Over the past five games, JV is averaging 12.2 points and 15.0 rebounds. numberFire's metrics project Valanciunas to score 13.3 points and pull down 11.3 rebounds on Friday night versus...

Toronto Raptors forward/center Patrick Patterson (sore left knee) will not play Tuesday versus the Brooklyn Nets. What It Means: Lucas Nogueira is expected to replace Patterson again, who will now miss his third straight game. Nogueira is an excellent DFS option on Tuesday night in a plus matchup. Nogueira costs $3,800 on FanDuel and is numberFire's top-rated value play of the night. Our models project him for 6.8 points, 7.1 rebounds, 2.3 blocks and 1.1 steals and 26.8 minutes of action.

Norman Powell starting for Raptors, Pascal Siakam to bench

Toronto Raptors shooting guard Norman Powell will start on Friday against the Charlotte Hornets while power forward Pascal Siakam moves to the bench. What It Means: The move is a result of Toronto being without both Lucas Nogueira (concussion) and Patrick Patterson (knee). Powell is averaging 14.7 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.5 3-pointers in 28.9 minutes through six games as a starter. Our models have Powell pegged for 8.3 points, 2.5 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.9 3-pointers on Friday night, but that accounts for only 20.1 minutes of...

Raptors without Patrick Patterson (knee) again on Tuesday

Toronto Raptors forward/center Patrick Patterson (sore left knee) will not play Tuesday versus the Brooklyn Nets. What It Means: Lucas Nogueira is expected to replace Patterson again, who will now miss his third straight game. Nogueira is an excellent DFS option on Tuesday night in a plus matchup.

Patrick Patterson will not play Friday in Toronto

Toronto Raptors forward Patrick Patterson (knee) will not play Friday against the Brooklyn Nets. What It Means: He returned to the court on Tuesday but went scoreless in 21 minutes and did not look good. Dwane Casey says holding him out tonight is just precautionary, but it will likely be Lucas Nogueira getting the biggest bump without Patterson. Our models project Nogueira for 6.8 points, 7.1 rebounds and 1.1 assists over 26.3 minutes Friday against the Nets. Source: Rotoworld.com

Raptors' Patrick Patterson will not play on Thursday

Toronto Raptors forward/center Patrick Patterson (knee) will not play against the Utah Jazz on Thursday. What It Means: Patterson will now have missed three straight games with the left knee injury and will be considered questionable when the Raptors face the Chicago Bulls on Saturday. Lucas Nogueira and Jakob Poeltl both played over 20 minutes in the Raptors' last game and figure to do the same against the Jazz on Thursday. Our models project Nogueira for 5.3 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 1.7 blocks in 21.6 minutes while costing the minimum ($3,500) on...

Raptors get destroyed by Spurs 110-82

Raptors get destroyed by Spurs 110-82

Not a great way to end a long road trip In a game that was always going to be difficult for the Raptors without Patrick Patterson, the San Antonio Spurs absolutely battered Toronto 110-82. The Raptors looked to have found some offensive rhythm again in the win against the Los Angeles Lakers, but the same struggles that haunted them against Utah, Phoenix, and Portland all showed up again. Without Kyle Lowry’s heroics to bail them out this time, one can only hope this loss is a wake up call in light of some of the cracks that have started to appear. Save for a brief flurry by Terrence Ross...

Power Rankings Week 10: A Brand New Day and Year

Power Rankings Week 10: A Brand New Day and Year

The Raptors are 1.000 in the new year, but we’ve got to assess the previous week. Hey all, it’s our first Power Rankings summary of the new year. A lot has happened in 2016, including the loss — for now — of our beloved polls. This means the original purpose of this column (tracking the level of disrespect of the Raptors) has been sort of short-circuited. Worse things have happened, but here we are. Anyway, the Raptors are undefeated in 2017, which is nice. But they lost their last two games of 2016, and watched as Patrick Patterson — easily the third most important player on the...

Power Forward Friday: Is Pascal Siakam Ready?

Power Forward Friday: Is Pascal Siakam Ready?

Our weekly search for the ideal power forward is at a crossroads. Relevance is a funny thing. I went into this column wanting to address the Raptors’ power forward position, for the two reasons we’re all aware of. The Situation First, it’s been the most fluid position on the Raptors roster for three seasons. While Patrick Patterson has become more of a bedrock, playing 28-30 minutes a night in the backup role, there’s been a turnstile of starters ahead of him — none of them doing much better than “dragging the team down”. Last season, we dealt with Luis Scola. This year,...
