Chris Boucher didn’t play in Sunday's 125-113 loss against the Pacers.
Boucher sat the last two games for rest purposes after returning to action on May 11th. He missed most of May due to a sprained MCL in his left knee. Boucher was one of the biggest draft days steals in fantasy basketball and broke out in 2020-21. The 28-year-old center averaged 13.6 points, 6.7 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 0.6 steals, and 1.9 blocks across 24.2 minutes this season. Boucher will look to build on his career year for fantasy managers in 2021-2022.
After playing 37 minutes on Tuesday, Chris Boucher will miss Thursday's contest against Chicago.
As with most of the team's injuries, Toronto is showing extreme patience in their player's returns. Although he played 37 minutes, Boucher didn't seem too comfortable on the court and it was clear he was still recovering from the knee injury. Khem Birch and Freddie Gillespie will both see increased minutes at the center position while Boucher is out.
Chris Boucher scored a team-high 16 points (5-15 FG, 2-9 3PT, 4-5 FT) with seven rebounds, one steal and one block across 37 minutes in Tuesday's 115-96 loss to the Clippers.
Boucher (knee) returned after a nine-game absence and led the Raptors with 16 points during Tuesday’s loss. He logged 37 minutes on Tuesday and is fully recovered from his MCL sprain. Boucher is averaging 13.6 points, 6.7 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 0.6 steals, 1.9 blocks, and 1.5 triples across 24.2 minutes in 2020–21. The Raptors' next scheduled game is Thursday, away against the Bulls.
Chris Boucher (knee) remains out for Tuesday's game against the Clippers.
Boucher didn’t play in Tuesday’s 105-100 loss to the Clippers. There is no timetable for his return and has missed the last seven games with a sprained MCL in his left knee. His next chance to return will be Thursday against the Wizards. Khem Birch will continue to see an expanded role while Boucher remains sidelined.
Chris Boucher (knee) will miss at least four games with an MCL sprain.
Boucher's earliest return date has been pinpointed for April 29, which would be the best case scenario. His absence will definitely put more strain on Pascal Siakam and serves as a big boost for Aron Baynes. Baynes could be a name to consider for playoff runs for fantasy teams struggling with injury or center depth.
