Australian C Aron Baynes (knee) banged into Bradley Beal during a USA vs. Australia friendly on Monday night and had to exit the game early.
Baynes, who most recently played for the Raptors this season, appeared to be in a good deal of pain just 4 minutes into the game when he collided with Beal. After a short stint in the locker room, Baynes returned back to the bench, although it remains to be seen how severe the injury is.
Aron Baynes provided 13 points (5-6 FG, 2-3 3PT,1-1 FT), six rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block across 21 minutes during Friday’s 114-110 loss to the Mavericks.
Baynes led the Raptors bench in scoring with 13 points. It was the first time he scored double figures since April 5th. The 34-year-old center is averaging 6.0 points, 5.1 rebounds, 0.9 assists, 0.3 steals, 0.4 blocks across 18.3 minutes in 2020-21. Baynes will look to build on Friday’s performance in the season finale against the Pacers.
Aron Baynes provided six points (3-6, FG, 0-2 3PT, 0-1 FT), four rebounds and three assists across 21 minutes during Thursday's 114-102 loss to the Bulls.
Baynes hasn’t played since April 10th and logged 21 minutes in his return Thursday. The 34-year-old could see an uptick in minutes over the final two games as the Raptors are out of the NBA playoff race and continue to rest key players. Baynes is averaging 5.8 points, 5.1 rebounds, 0.9 assists, and 0.4 triples across 18.3 minutes in 2020-21. The Raptors' next scheduled game is Friday, away against the Mavericks.
Raptors' C Aron Baynes (foot) has been ruled of Thursday's game against Washington.
Baynes is working through a foot contusion, and it looks as though the 11-seed Raptors will be shorthanded amidst a last-minute postseason push. Expect Khem Birch to see increased usage tonight.
Aron Baynes (coach's decision) didn't appear in Tuesday's 116-103 loss to the Nets.
Baynes hasn’t appeared in a game since April 10th and has fallen out of favor in the Raptors rotation. The 34-year-old center had averaged 5.8 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 0.9 assists before sitting out the previous nine games. With the Raptors currently out of the playoff race, Baynes could be rested the rest of the season. The Raptors' next scheduled game is Thursday, away against the Nuggets.
