Thaddeus Young (knee) is active for Thursday's game against the New Orleans Pelicans.
Young initially carried an injury designation for Thursday's game because of a knee issue, but it's not considered serious and he will be well enough to play. His fantasy value hasn't been very high over the course of the season, however, so he remains a fringe streaming option against New Orleans.
Thaddeus Young has been listed as questionable ahead of Thursday's game against the Pelicans.
Young is expected to play, but he is off the fantasy radar with OG Anunoby also expected to play.
Thaddeus Young recorded 12 points (6-10 FG, 0-2 3P), eight rebounds, five assists, two steals, and one turnover across 28 minutes in Wednesday's 112-98 loss to the Nets.
On Wednesday, Young logged his fifth start of the season. With the Raptors missing key players, the Georgia Tech product is averaging 12.6 points, 7.2 rebounds, 3.2 assists, and 2.2 steals per game over his last five games. The 34-year-old should continue to start as long as Pascal Siakam and Precious Achiuwa remain out. The Raptors play the Mavericks in Dallas on Saturday.
Thaddeus Young recorded 18 points (9-12 FG, 0-2 3P), nine rebounds, four assists, four steals, and one turnover across 35 minutes in Saturday's 124-122 loss to the Hawks in overtime.
Young delivered season-highs in points, rebounds, steals, and minutes in Saturday's game. The Georgia Tech product took advantage of an expanded role with the Raptors missing four forwards in their lineup. Young will continue to be a sneaky fantasy option if the Raptors remain so shorthanded. The Raptors play the Nets in Toronto on Wednesday.
Thaddeus Young recorded 12 points (6-9 FG), eight rebounds, two assists, and two turnovers across 28 minutes in Wednesday's 112-104 win over the Heat.
Young has logged 26 or more minutes in three consecutive games with the Raptors shorthanded. The Georgia Tech product has averaged 11 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 1.7 steals over his last three starts. Of course, once Pascal Siakam is healthy, Young will be back to limited minutes off the bench. The Raptors play the Hawks in Atlanta on Saturday.
