Pascal Siakam Headshot

Pascal Siakam started the second half Tuesday.

He had been in the doghouse with his coach recently, and there was talk about him being sent to the D-League to get in more playing time. It looks as though he is getting a chance to show he still belongs with the Raptors and a part of their front court rotation.

Jordan Clarkson Headshot

Jordan Clarkson will play Tuesday against the Nuggets.

Clarkson is dealing with a minor right ankle sprain. He felt good enough in the warmups to be able to play on Tuesday, and will serve as the backup point guard to D'Angelo Russell. He should see playing time in the low-to-mid 20 minute range against the visiting Nuggets.

Lucas Nogueira Headshot

UPDATE: Lucas Nogueira has blurred vision in his left eye and will not return Tuesday.

He is going to be out of action until he can clear the concussion protocols. He took a hard forearm to the head before leaving the game against the Nets in Brooklyn.

Ty Lawson Headshot

Ty Lawson (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's game.

Lawson is dealing with a sprained ankle, although it is unclear when he suffered the injury. A decision on his status will come after the shootaround Wednesday, but if he cannot go against the Pacers, then expect the duo of Darren Collison and Garrett Temple to see additional playing time.

Philip Rivers Headshot

Philip Rivers shot down the idea that he is seeking a trade.

Rivers had a strong offensive year, throwing for 33 TDs but also tossed 21 interceptions, a career high. He should have two of his top weapons back for 2017, in Keenan Allen and Danny Woodhead, so there is little reason for him to be requesting a trade. Instead, look for him to want to show what he can do with a healthy offense to drive in 2017.

Randal Grichuk Headshot

Randal Grichuk underwent a scope to remove floating cartilage in his left knee.

Grichuk had a nice breakout season in 2016, stroking 24 dingers over his 446 ABs. Aside from the power, though, he was not a great fantasy option, putting up a slash line of .240/.289/.480 over 132 games. Despite the surgery, there is no word that he will not be ready for spring training.

Austin Rivers Headshot

Austin Rivers is expected to see an increase in minutes while Chris Paul is out.

Rivers will take over at the point while Paul is out of action. He has a chance to start on Thursday against Minnesota and could be a nice daily option to slide into your lineups.

Lucas Nogueira Headshot

Update: Lucas Nogueira is undergoing concussion protocol.

He took a forearm to the head, so the concussion protocol is no surprise to be invoked. He is no guarantee to return to action, but keep your eye on the news coming out of Brooklyn to see whether he is going to be on the sidelines for more than just Tuesday's game.
