DeMar DeRozan was ejected with two technicals fouls on Tuesday vs. the Bulls.
He was ejected in the final minute, so his fantasy owners will be more upset about his quiet line. He scored 18 points on just 5-of-19 shooting with five rebounds, three assists, one steal and three turnovers, though he did hit 8-of-9 from the line. The Raptors are reeling with 11 losses out of their last 14 games and the team looks visibly frustrated, but the addition of Serge Ibaka could turn their season around. DeRozan's value should be just fine alongside Ibaka, but he could lose a couple touches. Feb 14 - 10:32 PM

DeMar DeRozan scored a game-high 26 points in a losing effort vs. Detroit on Sunday, making 10-of-21 FGs and 6-of-7 FTs with seven rebounds, two assists and one block in 38 minutes.

DeRozan was isolated on the final possession, but Marcus Morris played solid defense and his potential game-winner was an ill-conceived, contested jumper. He was furious after not getting a foul call and a fine could be coming. Kyle Lowry added 15 points, six rebounds, five assists and four 3-pointers tonight, but the Raptors need to take stock after losing 10 of their past 14 games.
Feb 12 - 8:58 PM

DeMar DeRozan scored 30 points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer during a 112-109 loss to the Wolves on Wednesday.

Clearly, the Raptors waited to get him close to 100 percent. DeRozan missed seven of his previous eight games before Monday, but he's hit the 30-point mark in each of his last two games. He'll get a tougher matchup against the Pistons on Sunday. All that time off should help him, too.
Feb 9 - 1:21 AM

DeMar DeRozan returned from his ankle injury and hit 11-of-22 shots and two 3-pointers for 31 points, five rebounds, two assists and a steal in Monday's 118-109 win over the Clippers.

DeRozan had missed seven of his previous eight games with the ankle injury, but didn't miss a beat tonight. He came back and played on Jan. 29 after missing his previous three games, then sat out the next four. Hopefully he didn't aggravate the injury tonight and will be good to go for the rest of the season.
Feb 6 - 10:43 PM

DeMar DeRozan (ankle) will play Monday vs. the Clippers.

DeRozan should start, which will shift Norman Powell back to the bench, and he'll lose a lot of value with the demotion to the second unit. DeRozan will be without a minutes limit tonight, so make sure you have him active.
Feb 6 - 6:29 PM

DeMar DeRozan (ankle) is listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. the Clippers.

This update comes from the team's game notes, so this doesn't mean much. DeRozan has missed seven out of the last eight games and his status for tonight is still up in the air. He did practice in limited fashion on Saturday, so we can only assume that he's nearing a return. It will be the Norman Powell show on Monday if DeRozan sits, while Kyle Lowry would get a nice usage rate bump.
Feb 6 - 1:32 PM

DeMar DeRozan (ankle) will not play on Sunday vs. the Nets, but Kyle Lowry (illness) will play.

He will sit out for the seventh time in his last eight games, but he should be nearing a return since he was able to go through a limited practice on Saturday. Norman Powell will get another start and is averaging 15.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 31.8 minutes in the first unit this season. Terrence Ross also gets a slight bump with DeRozan out, while Lowry will be a usage monster if he's feeling up to it.
Feb 5 - 10:42 AM

DeMar DeRozan (ankle) is unlikely to play on Sunday vs. the Nets.

It sounds like Norman Powell will be getting another start. DeRozan was able to get in a partial practice on Saturday, but it makes sense for the Raptors to hold him out in a game they should be able to win without him. We'll have an official update shortly. Powell is averaging 15.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 31.8 minutes in 13 starts this season.
Feb 5 - 10:37 AM

DeMar DeRozan (ankle) and Patrick Patterson (knee) put in a partial practice on Saturday.

Their status is unclear for the noon game in Brooklyn on Sunday. Kyle Lowry (illness) is also up in the air to play, so it could be the B team in BK. If DeRozan is out, Norman Powell would be looking at another start and would get a heavy usage bump without Lowry, too. Terrence Ross, Cory Joseph and Fred VanVleet could also benefit.
Feb 4 - 4:09 PM

DeMar DeRozan (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Nets.

DeRozan has missed three straight games and six of the Raptors last seven. Norman Powell has started in place of DeRozan in each of those six games and has played heavy minutes. In the 13 games Powell has started this season, he is averaging 15.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 31.8 minutes. Powell is an intriguing DFS play if DeRozan is sidelined again on Sunday.

Feb 4 - 10:11 AM

DeMar DeRozan (ankle) will not play against the Magic on Friday.

That will be his third game in a row out of the lineup due to soreness in his right ankle. The Raptors are 3-7 in their last 10 and it's caused them to fall to just 0.5 games from the fourth-seeded Wizards. Still, the Raptors don't want DeRozan to wear down later, so it makes sense to get him right. For tonight, Norman Powell should get big minutes and is a solid player to start in most leagues. Kyle Lowry should be busy, as well.
Feb 3 - 5:41 PM

DeMar DeRozan (sore right ankle) will not play Tuesday vs. the Pelicans or Wednesday vs. the Celtics.

DeRozan experienced some swelling in his right ankle after returning to the court on Sunday following a three-game stint on the sidelines, and while the Raptors are describing his absence as precautionary, it's a bit concerning to see him already ruled out for both games of this back-to-back set. With DeRozan on the sidelines Norman Powell will likely return to the starting five, and Kyle Lowry will do the heavy lifting on offense. For now, we'll consider DeRozan questionable for Friday's game in Orlando.
Jan 31 - 5:29 PM

DeMar DeRozan (ankle) scored 22 points with six assists and seven rebounds in 36 minutes on Sunday against the Magic.

He returned after missing three games due to an ankle injury and did not miss a beat, as there appeared to be no lingering effects from the injury in tonight's contest. DeRozan has scored at least 20 points in 17 consecutive games and looks to continue that streak on Tuesday against the Pelicans, who give up 22.8 points per game to shooting guards. His return sent Norman Powell back to the bench.
Jan 29 - 9:23 PM

DeMar DeRozan (ankle) will start Sunday's game vs. the Magic.

DeRozan's return sends Norman Powell back to the bench, where he's not a viable option in DFS or standard leagues. Get DeRozan in your active lineups.
Jan 29 - 5:12 PM

DeMar DeRozan (ankle) will be a game-time call for Sunday's matchup with the Magic.

Dwane Casey said that DeRozan's ankle was feeling "much better," so it sounds like there's a decent chance he gets back on the court tonight following a three-game stint on the sidelines. His return to action would send Norman Powell back to the bench, and Kyle Lowry's usage would take a slight hit. Stay tuned.
