Delon Wright scored a season-high 15 points as a fill-in starter on Sunday, making 6-of-12 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs with eight rebounds, four assists and one steal in 38 minutes.
Kyle Lowry (bruised left thigh) and Fred VanVleet (back) were both sidelined tonight, so Wright got the start and made the most of his opportunity. The Raptors' next game is at home on Wednesday but Wright isn't a great hold since Lowry and VanVleet are both day-to-day. Just keep this performance in mind if those guys do miss more games.

Fred VanVleet (back) is doubtful to play Sunday against the Nuggets.

FVV has been fighting through the pain with this back issue for the past few games, but it sounds like he'll be taking Sunday's game off in order to give him a full four days off prior to Wednesday's game against the Pacers. Kyle Lowry (thigh) has already been ruled out, so Delon Wright could be getting the start today, and he'd make sense as a DFS play.
Dec 16 - 3:04 PM

C.J. Miles (right adductor) is probable to play Friday vs. the Wizards.

Miles has missed the past five games, so he could be somewhat limited in his first game back. Once he's fully up to speed, Delon Wright's minutes could return to the teens.
Nov 22 - 1:55 PM

Coach Nick Nurse said that Kyle Lowry (ankle) will be a game-time decision Tuesday night vs. Orlando.

Lowry tweaked his ankle in the third quarter of Saturday's victory and exited the contest. However, being considered a GTD for Tuesday is a bit surprising, as both Nurse and Lowry said he was fine on Monday. It is the front end of a back-to-back (Toronto plays in Atlanta on Wednesday), so the Raps may just be playing it safe. If Lowry does not suit up, Fred Vanvleet would likely draw the start, with Delon Wright backing him up.
Nov 20 - 10:40 AM

Fred VanVleet (toe) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Suns.

FVV has spent the past four games on the sidelines, and since we haven't seen any reports of him ramping up his activities at practice, he should be considered closer to doubtful for Friday's game. Delon Wright and Lorenzo Brown will continue to split the backup PG minutes while he's out.
Nov 1 - 12:22 PM

Fred VanVleet (toe) will not suit up for Tuesday's game against the 76ers.

This will be the fourth game in a row that FVV will be watching from the sidelines, which will translate to more minutes for Delon Wright and Lorenzo Brown. The Raptors take on the Suns on Friday, and for now, we'll be considering VanVleet questionable for that one.
Oct 30 - 5:59 PM

Fred VanVleet (turf toe) is questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Sixers.

VanVleet has missed each of the Raptors last three contests. However, he was able to get in a limited practice on Sunday, so appears to be headed in the right direction. If he is ruled out for Tuesday's game vs. Philly, Delon Wright will again serve as the primary backup PG behind Kyle Lowry.
Oct 30 - 12:41 PM

Lorenzo Brown picked up two points and two assists in 12 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.

The additional run tonight was purely situational for Brown. Delon Wright (groin) was limited and Fred VanVleet (toe) was unavailable, so coach Nick Nurse expanded his guard rotation to include Brown. As tonight's line indicates, he's not an enticing fantasy target.
Oct 24 - 11:08 PM

Coach Dwane Casey said that Fred VanVleet (shoulder) is questionable for Game 6 Friday vs. Washington.

VanVleet has missed each of the last three games, and has logged a total of only three minutes this entire series. VanVleet said the plan is to go through shootaround with the team and re-assess the situation afterward. We should have an update on his status later in the day. If he is ruled out, Delon Wright will again see extended minutes off the Raptors bench.
Apr 27 - 10:10 AM

Coach Dwane Casey said that Fred VanVleet (shoulder) was able to practice on Tuesday and is day-to-day.

VanVleet is officially listed as doubtful on the injury report, meaning it's unlikely he will be cleared to play. We should have another update on his status after Wednesday morning's shootaround. If FVV is ruled out for Game 5, Delon Wright would again be asked to handle significant minutes. Wright is averaging 10.5 points, 3.3 assists and 2.0 steals in 24.6 minutes over the first four games of this series.
Apr 24 - 1:48 PM

Fred VanVleet (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's Game 4 against the Wizards.

This will be VanVleet's second straight game on the sidelines, which will again translate to more minutes for Delon Wright. FVV said that the pain in his shoulder is "manageable," but the main issue is a "lack of range and strength," and he's having trouble "passing, dribbling, running, fighting through screens." For now, we'll consider him doubtful for Wednesday's Game 5 in Toronto.
Apr 22 - 4:47 PM

Fred VanVleet (shoulder) has been downgraded to doubtful for Tuesday's Game 2 vs. the Wizards.

VanVleet was initially listed as questionable, and it was reported earlier today that he had participated in shootaround and would be a game-time decision for Game 2. While FVV is making progress, the Raps want to make sure he's as close to 100 percent as possible before bringing him back. Delon Wright was excellent off the bench in Game 1, finishing with 18 points, four assists and three steals in 25 minutes. Wright will likely see 20-plus minutes again in Game 2 if VanVleet is ruled out.
Apr 17 - 12:45 PM

Fred VanVleet (shoulder) was able to participate in shootaround and will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's matchup with Washington.

VanVleet was unable to play in Game 1 on Saturday, but coach Dwane Casey said he was feeling better on Sunday and he was able to get through "most" of Monday's practice. The bench has been a major strength for Toronto all season. Delon Wright played wonderfully (18 points, four assists, three steals in 25 minutes) in Game 1. He will split minutes with FVV in the backcourt once VanVleet is cleared to return.
Apr 17 - 11:04 AM

Fred VanVleet (lower back tightness) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Miami.

Steady Freddy tweaked his back Sunday vs. Orlando and was then ruled out of Monday's game vs. the Spurs. Wednesday's season finale is essentially meaningless, so expect the Raps to hold out VanVleet unless he is close to 100 percent. If he does not play, Delon Wright will serve as Kyle Lowry's primary backup.
Apr 10 - 5:12 PM

Malcolm Miller will be in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Magic.

DeMar DeRozan (rest) is taking the night off, so Miller will get the start tonight and there will be more minutes for guys like Delon Wright and C.J Miles. Joining Miller in the starting five will be Kyle Lowry, OG Anunoby, Serge Ibaka and Jonas Valanciunas. Lowry looks like a very attractive DFS target tonight. Miller hasn't done much of anything in his previous starts this season, so he's not worth deploying in most settings.
Mar 20 - 7:00 PM

Fred VanVleet (right hand contusion) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Magic.

This will be VanVleet's second straight game on the shelf, and with DeMar DeRozan (thigh) also unavailable, Delon Wright and C.J. Miles should see a decent uptick in minutes. VanVleet is being listed as day-to-day with the minor hand injury, so maybe he'll be able to get back out there for Wednesday's game in Cleveland.
Mar 20 - 5:46 PM

Fred VanVleet (right hand contusion) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. Orlando.

VanVleet did not play Sunday vs. OKC, but the Raptors have downplayed the seriousness of the injury. However, the Raps play a back-to-back on Tuesday and Wednesday, so they may hold him out for the front end. We should have an update after shootaround. If VanVleet is ruled out, Delon Wright will soak up additional minutes.
Mar 20 - 9:12 AM

Fred VanVleet (hand bruise) is being listed as day-to-day.

VanVleet's injury doesn't seem serious at all, but the Raptors will be cautious with him considering the depth they already have at the point guard spot. Toronto has a Tuesday-Wednesday, back-to-back set coming up, so it wouldn't be all that surprising to see him miss at least one of those games. Delon Wright will be the primary beneficiary while he's out.
Mar 18 - 5:25 PM

Norman Powell scored 17 points as a starter on Wednesday, making 7-of-12 field goals with three 3-pointers, four rebounds and one block in 28 minutes.

Delon Wright (sprained toe) and OG Anunoby (ankle) were both out of commission tonight, and Powell took advantage to score more points than he had in the previous nine games combined. Anunoby (ankle) didn't travel with the team for this road game and his return date is unclear, which sets the stage for more potential starts from Powell. Still, most owners should wait to see him reproduce this line before cutting anyone of value for him.
Mar 7 - 11:55 PM

Fred VanVleet (personal) did not attend shootaround and is unlikely to be available Tuesday vs. Minnesota.

VanVleet is with his family following the birth of his daughter last Sunday night. He is coming off a career-high 25-point game in Sunday's win over the Lakers, just hours before his daughter was born. If VanVleet is unable to play Tuesday, Delon Wright would see an uptick in minutes off the bench. Norman Powell might see some playing time as well.
Jan 30 - 11:02 AM

Fred VanVleet does not have any structural damage in his injured knee and is considered day-to-day.

VanVleet injured his right knee on a layup attempt in Monday's game vs. the Sixers. He limped off the floor and was unable to return to the contest. Fortunately, VanVleet said he was feeling better on Tuesday. We'll still consider him questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Detroit. If VanVleet is unable to play, Delon Wright would soak up additional minutes off the Raptors bench.
