C - TOR
Raptors C Khem Birch is questionable for Wednesday’s game against Minnesota according to SI.com’s Aaron Rose.
Birch is in danger of missing his second straight contest as he continues to deal with swelling in his right knee. Chris Boucher and Precious Achiuwa should again see increased minutes if Birch cannot play Wednesday.
Khem Birch is slated to start in Friday's game against the Charlotte Hornets.
Birch is set to fill in for OG Anunoby, who is inactive with a finger injury. He may be in the starting lineup for the foreseeable future, with Anunoby's timetable not yet clear. Look for the veteran big to see an increase in both minutes and fantasy points while Anunoby recovers.
Per the NBA Injury Report, Khem Birch ruled out Tuesday vs the Hornets
Birch will miss his sixth consecutive game on Tuesday with a nose fracture. Both Chris Boucher and Precious Achiuwa are in line for more minutes.
According to Blake Murphy, Khem Birch is listed as out on Sunday vs the Blazers
With Birch out, Chris Boucher and Precious Achiuwa will continue to feature in Nurse's rotation.
According to Eric Koreen, Khem Birch is listed as out Tuesday vs the 76ers.
With Birch out of the rotation alongside Precious Achiuwa, the Raptors will turn to Chris Bouche, Svi Mykhailiuk, and Pascal Siakam to soak up the remaining minutes.
