Nick Nurse said he wants to give Norman Powell more minutes and get him going for Game 3 against the Celtics on Thursday.
Powell looked great during Toronto's first-round series, but he's had a tough time getting going against Boston and he played just 13 minutes in Game 2. It sounds like he should see his playing time closer to the mid-20s today, and the team will be actively looking to get him touches, so maybe he's worth a dice roll in DFS. Sep 03 5:07 pm (EST)
