Toronto Raptors

Eastern Atlantic

Serge Ibaka chipped in 14 points (5-9 FG, 1-4 3PT, 3-3 FT) off the bench for the Raptors in 20 minutes of action and added eight rebounds in a 92-87 Game 7 loss to the Boston Celtics.

Fantasy Impact: Ibaka was arguably the most consistent player for the Raptors against the Celtics, shooting an efficient 51% from the field and 46% from three-point range across seven games. He'll be a free agent this offseason and will be a valuable commodity for team's looking for a stretch-four or five.

Pascal Siakam notched a double-double by scoring 13 points (5-12 FG, 0-1 3PT, 3-4 FT) along with a team-high 11 rebounds, three assists, one block, and five turnovers across 42 minutes in a 92-87 Game 7 loss to the Celtics on Friday night.

Fantasy Impact: The All-Star forward didn't play well in the Eastern Conference semi-finals, lowering his scoring output to 14.9 points ppg and shooting 40.9% from the field and 9.3% from distance in 41 minutes per game. Despite faltering in the second round of the NBA playoffs, Siakam should take another step forward next season after averaging career-highs in points (22.9), rebounds (7.3), assists (3.5), steals (1.0), and blocks (0.9) this season.

Kyle Lowry produced 16 points (5-15 FG, 1-6 3PT, 5-6 FT) and added six rebounds, four assists across 41 minutes before fouling out late in a Game 7 loss to the Celtics.

Fantasy Impact: Lowry helped the Raptors force Game 6, but they didn't save enough for Game 7, shooting 41% from the field and 28% from three-point range as a team. Lowry finished his second-round series against Boston averaging 20.7 points, 6.4 assists, 6.3 rebounds, 1.9 steals while shooting 42% from the field, and 28% from three per contest.

Fred VanVleet was the top-scorer for the Raptors in a 92-87 Game 7 loss to the Celtics, registering 20 points (8-20 FG, 4-9 3PT) and adding a team-high six assists with three rebounds, and two blocks in 45 minutes of play.

Fantasy Impact: VanVleet's shot pulled a disappearing act in the Eastern Conference semi-finals, making only 35% of his attempts through seven games. He remained aggressive but was not able to get the necessary support from his teammates to press on to the next round. VanVleet will be one of the top free agents in a thin market this offseason, and he'll have no shortage of suitors.

OG Anunoby, the hero of Game 3, chipped in 11 points (3-7 FG, 2-4 3PT, 3-4 FT) with three rebounds, three assists, and two blocks in 35 minutes of play in a 100-93 win against the Celtics in Game 4.

Fantasy Impact: Anunoby had a solid game for the Raptors, playing good defense and cashing in on two three's. His late-game heroics weren't required in Game 4, but he'll need to keep his confidence high heading into Game 5 on Monday. Anunoby is averaging 13.8 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.0 assist, 1.5 blocks, and 1.0 steal while shooting 54.5% from the field through four games in the Eastern Conference semi-finals.

Marc Gasol netted 10 points (5-9 FG, 0-3 3PT, 0-1 FT) and added six rebounds, three assists in 26 minutes of play in a win against the Celtics in Game 3.

Fantasy Impact: Gasol elevated his scoring in Game 3, reaching double-figures for the first time in five games in the NBA playoffs. Gasol will continue to man the center position but offers little upside for DFS players going forward.

Norman Powell scored a game-high 29 points (9-14 FG, 5-9 3PT, 6-6 FT) off the bench in 24 minutes Sunday to go along with five rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block, and one turnover as the Raptors sweep the series against the Nets.

Fantasy Impact: Powell went for over 20 points in two of the four games against Brooklyn. He's been a great scorer for the Raptors off the bench all season, averaging 16 points per game compared to just 8.6 points per game during the 2018-19 season. He's solidified himself as a part of the 7-man rotation for coach of the year Nick Nurse.

Toronto F Oshae Brissett has left the NBA Bubble to undergo surgery to remove loose bodies from his right knee. (Source: Josh Lewenberg on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Brissett has yet to play in the NBA Bubble and only played in 19 games for the Raptors this season. There is no timetable for his return, and his absence will have no impact on the Raptors rotation. Brissett carries no fantasy relevance for DFS or season-long formats at this time.

Paul Watson totaled 22 points (8-13 FG, 4-6 3PT, 2-3 FT), six rebounds and two assists in 27 minutes in the 117-109 win over the Denver Nuggets on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: With Fred VanVleet and Kyle Lowry resting in the final regular season game for the Raptors, Watson took over the backup point guard role. Although Watson is not relevant from a fantasy standpoint, he's someone to keep an eye on if something were to happen to VanVleet or Lowry in the post-season.

Stanley Johnson totaled 23 points (9-16 FGM, 4-8 3PT, 1-3 FT), four rebounds and six assists in 29 minutes in the 117-109 win over the Denver Nuggets on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson is not regularly in the rotation for the Raptors but he played valuable minutes while Toronto rested some starters. Johnson went off for 23 points coming off the bench while also adding four rebounds and six assists. Although Johnson is still not fantasy-relevant, he's someone to keep an eye on as he may have earned himself more minutes after today's performance in the final regular season game for Toronto.

Chris Boucher had yet another great game off the bench for Toronto as he finished with 19 points, nine rebounds, and four blocks in 22 minutes.

Fantasy Impact: Boucher followed up his 25-point performance with another stellar performance which showcased his defensive prowess and the deep ball. He should be in all lineups for the Raptors' final game of the regular season and is a great addition if on the wire.

Matt Thomas scored a career-high 22 points (9-17 FG, 3-7 3PT, 4-5 FT) Monday. He also chipped in four rebounds and one assist over a team-high 37 minutes of play.

Fantasy Impact: Thomas took full advantage of his extended run with the depleted Raptors Monday night. The rookie could continue to see increased usage as the seeding round wraps up before spending more time on the bench again once the playoffs start.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson notched 11 points (4-9 FG, 0-4 3PT, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, five assists, and one steal over 26 minutes of play off the bench Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Hollis-Jefferson played his most minutes in a game since late February but wasn't able to take advantage. His six turnovers committed didn't help his final fantasy output. He has minimal fantasy value moving forward.

Patrick McCaw will be leaving the bubble to receive treatment on the benign mass that he has on his knee. McCaw is expected to have a surgical procedure to clean up his knee, according to head coach Nick Nurse. (Source: Blake Murphy on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: McCaw was unable to play in any of the Raptors' games during the restart. The Raptors will not be able to replace McCaw on their roster, so they will be a man short for the rest of the season. McCaw did not have a huge role off the bench, but his minutes will probably be distributed between Terence Davis II and Matt Thomas. The Raptors' rotation should not look much different with McCaw out.

Dewan Hernandez suffered an ankle sprain in December, which sidelined him for the remainder of the Raptors games before the shutdown. Hernandez is now back to full health and has traveled to Orlando to join Toronto for the NBA restart. (Source: Austin Kent on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Hernandez has only played in four games so far for the Raptors. He is currently listed as the fourth center on the Raptors roster, which has him planted near the end of the bench. The fact that he traveled with the Raptors to Orlando is a good sign for him and the restart could lead to some playing time for Hernandez. Unless there is an injury to the front court, Hernandez is unlikely to have any fantasy value, but he is a high energy player who adds even more depth to Toronto's roster.

Terence Davis went for 10 points (3-9 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds, two assists and a steal over 17 minutes in the Raptors’ 108-97 loss to the Bucks on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Davis posted a solid line Tuesday, contributing across multiple categories in the loss. He's seen a noticeable drop-off in scoring now that both Kyle Lowry and Fred VanVleet are back to full health, though he's still averaged 13.3 points, 4.2 boards and 2.7 triples in February, making him a deeper-league play.
