G - TOR
Norman Powell (ankle) had to be helped off the floor during the first quarter of Monday's game against the Jazz with a left ankle sprain and will not return.
It was friendly-fire as Powell collided with teammate OG Anunoby. It didn't look good as Powell couldn't put any strength on his left leg as he had to be carried to the locker room. He was immediately ruled out for the remainder of the game. Patrick McCaw has replaced him on the court.
Norman Powell contributed 31 points (11-21 FG, 6-12 3PT, 3-4 FT), five assists, two rebounds, two steals and one block in 43 minutes of action in the Raptors' win over the Kings on Sunday.
Powell has been scorching hot over his last few games. He now has back to back 30 point games and has been providing great fantasy production. Powell should remain to be counted on by his managers going forward due to his great play recently.
Norman Powell poured in a career-high 37 points (13-20 FG, 4-8 3 PT, 7-7 FT), with three rebounds, two assists, and three steals in 38 minutes in Thursday night’s 121-113 win over Golden State.
Warriors fans were thrilled at the site of Stephen Curry on the court for their team after missing 58 games this season due to injury, however it was Powell who stole the show tonight dropping a career-high 37. He’s been shooting lights over his last three games, averaging a whopping 29 points (30-52 FG) in 39 minutes per game. He’s doing this without Fred VanVleet in the lineup, however, we’d expect Powell to potentially stick in the starting lineup for Toronto given his recent production.
Norman Powell contributed 26 points (8-15 FG, 2-6 3PT, 8-9 FT) two rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block across 38 minutes in the Raptors' win
Powell has been filling in nicely for his injuried teammates recently and has been providing solid fantasy value. He has dealt with injuries of his own this season but when he has been on the court he has produced. Powell should be started in most leagues going forward.
Norman Powell recorded 24 points (9-17 FG, 1-6 3PT, 5-6 FT), six rebounds, and one block in 40 minutes of play Sunday.
Powell has been leaned on heavily over the past two games, averaging 38.3 minutes on the floor and 23 points per game. Expect those numbers to go down when Fred VanVleet, Serge Ibaka, and Marc Gasol return.
