Bruno Caboclo Headshot

Raptors have assigned forward Bruno Caboclo to the D-League.

Added 11/04/16 8:07 am (EST)   Source
The Raptor's first round draft pick in 2014 has been a DNP Coach's Decision in every game so far this season, and has only played in 14 games through his career. Sending him down to their D-League will at least provide him minutes on the court, and being only 21 years old, there is still time for Caboclo to make his mark in the NBA.
Serge Ibaka Headshot

Ibaka scored 15 points (5-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while adding four rebounds and one block across 36 minutes in Monday's 92-91 win over the Knicks.

Added Yesterday 11:59 pm (EST)
Since coming to the Raptors over the All-Star break, Ibaka has averaged 16 points and seven rebounds across 35.3 minutes. Although the point and rebound totals are similar to his season averages, he is already earning nearly five more minutes per game on a winning team, which bodes well for more opportunities. The Raptors lack a post presence other than Jonas Valanciunas, so Ibaka, a premier post defender with some range to his game, should continue to post nights like Monday night, if not better nights.
Lance Thomas Headshot

Thomas tallied 12 points (3-4 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT) and six rebounds across 29 minutes in Monday's 92-91 loss to the Raptors.

Added Yesterday 11:50 pm (EST)
In the last three games coming out of the All-Star break, Thomas has averaged 10.7 points and 5.7 rebounds across 32.3 minutes. He has earned starts with his productivity in Kristaps Porzingis' (ankle) absence, but he will revert back to a bench role when Porzingis returns, which is expected to be in the next game Wednesday against the Magic.
Isaiah Thomas Headshot

Thomas posted 19 points (4-21 FG, 1-6 3PT, 10-10 FT), seven rebounds, seven assists, one block and seven turnovers across 30 minutes during a 114-98 loss to the Hawks on Monday.

Added Yesterday 11:42 pm (EST)
Thomas saw his streak of 43-straight games of scoring at least 20 points come to an end as he went ice cold from the field against Atlanta in the second half of a back-to-back. It was one of his worst games of the season as it was his worst shooting performance and he also tied a season high with seven turnovers. It wasn't all bad, however, as the seven rebounds were a season high and he blocked his first shot since Jan. 27. Expect him to bounce back against the Cavaliers on Wednesday.
Avery Bradley Headshot

Bradley totaled six points (2-4 FG, 2-3 3Pt) and three steals across 15 minutes during a 114-98 loss to the Hawks on Monday.

Added Yesterday 11:42 pm (EST)
Bradley (Achilles) returned from an 18-game absence and the minutes restriction kept him from doing much. He started and did impressively drain two three-pointers and nab three steals in just 15 minutes. His minutes will likely steadily increase going forward, which will affect the production of Marcus Smart and Terry Rozier.
Tim Hardaway Jr. Headshot

Hardaway tallied 10 points (4-10 FG, 2-7 3Pt), four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 27 minutes during a 114-98 win over the Celtics on Monday.

Added Yesterday 11:41 pm (EST)
Hardaway returned to the bench as Thabo Sefolosha was reinserted into the starting lineup, but still saw 27 minutes of action. He received six more minutes than Sefolosha, and that trend could continue, particularly on nights when his offensive prowess is needed. Expect Hardaway to continue to put up decent, but not overly impressive, numbers.
Thabo Sefolosha Headshot

Sefolosha recorded 12 points (5-6 FG, 2-2 3Pt), three rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks across 21 minutes during a 114-98 win over the Celtics on Monday.

Added Yesterday 11:40 pm (EST)
Sefolosha was reinserted into the starting lineup after he had been coming off the bench since his return from a groin injury. He was more productive than he had been in the last few games of coming off the bench, but his minutes didn't change much. Over the long run, he will likely see a bit more minutes as a starter, but Tim Hardaway still received more action Monday, despite the fact that he came off the bench.
Derrick Rose Headshot

Rose scored 16 points (5-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-6 FT) while adding six rebounds, four assists and two steals across 40 minutes in Monday's 92-91 loss to the Raptors.

Added Yesterday 11:39 pm (EST)
With few other options at point guard on the roster and all-star Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) out, Rose contributed in all facets Monday night. He has averaged over 34 minutes since missing four games with an ankle injury and seems to be fully healthy, which bodes well for his fantasy outlook and his ability to sustain this production for at least the start of the second half of the season.
Giannis Antetokounmpo Headshot

Antetokounmpo scored just nine points (4-13 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-4 FT) to go along with eight assists, seven rebounds and one block across 42 minutes during Monday's 102-95 loss to the Cavaliers.

Added Yesterday 11:15 pm (EST)
Antetokounmpo struggled with his shot in all phases and was held just his third single-digit scoring output of the season. Coincidentally, all three of those outings have come this month, but he has not endured any sort of prolonged slump and continues to produce effectively in other statistical categories. Antetokounmpo is averaging a career-high 23.4 points per game this season and should bounce back sooner rather than later after this lackluster performance.
Malcolm Brogdon Headshot

Brogdon posted 20 points (8-15 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-3 FT) to go along with five assists, three rebounds and a steal over 31 minutes in Monday's 102-95 loss against the Cavaliers.

Added Yesterday 11:10 pm (EST)
The University of Virginia standout has been hot from the floor over the past two outings, hitting 14 of his 24 field-goal attempts (.583) while averaging 17.5 points, 6.0 assists and 1.5 steals. He could be in line for more playing time with Michael Beasley (knee) exiting with an ugly left knee injury. If Beasley is forced to miss game time Brogdon, Mirza Teletovic and Khris Middleton could split up the veteran's minutes for added fantasy value.
Matthew Dellavedova Headshot

Dellavedova ended up with just four points (2-10 FG, 0-5 3Pt) while adding six assists and three rebounds across 32 minutes in Monday's 102-95 loss against the Cavaliers.

Added Yesterday 11:06 pm (EST)
Dellavedova had another dismal shooting night, struggling against his former teammates. He is mired in a shooting slump, connecting on just 20 of his 62 field-goal attempts (.323) in 11 outings in the month of February. That's well below his already meager .384 shooting percentage. Dellavedova, who has misfired on 11 straight 3-pointer attempts, cannot be trusted in any fantasy league until he starts shooting with more efficiency.
