DeMar DeRozan made a career-high 14-of-18 free throws during Sunday's Game 4 loss, scoring 35 points with six rebounds, six assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes.
DeRozan only got to the free-throw line twice Game 3, yet he had 12 attempts by the end of the first quarter today. His ability to generate fouls usually pads his scoring numbers even when his shot is off, which is one reason he's such a stable DFS option. The home team has held serve in all four games of this series, a trend Toronto hopes to continue at Air Canada Centre on Wednesday. Apr 22 - 9:08 PM

DeMar DeRozan scored 23 points with three rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes during a 122-103 loss to the Wizards in Game 3 on Friday.

He only got to the line two times in this game, which has been a slight trend since the middle of March. DeRozan is going to play huge minutes in close games, especially now that we have a series with the Wizards getting on the board. He'll likely be very active in Game 4 on Sunday.
Apr 20 - 10:46 PM

DeMar DeRozan hit 14-of-23 shots and three 3-pointers for 37 points, five rebounds and four assists in Tuesday's Game 2 win over the Wizards, giving Toronto a 2-0 lead in their series. The 37 points ties his career playoff high.

DeRozan had been in a scoring drought recently, scoring 17 points in Game 1, with 19 and 16 points in his final two regular season games. He broke out of it in a big way tonight and the 3-pointers were nice to see. He averaged a career-best 1.1 3-pointers during the regular season and after two postseason games, he's averaging 2.5 triples per game. He's a top fantasy option and it looks like the Raptors have a decent chance to roll fairly deep into the Eastern playoffs.
Apr 17 - 10:06 PM

DeMar DeRozan returned from a rest on Monday and had 16 points, three boards, seven assists and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

The Raptors have nothing left to play for so whether DeRozan plays on Wednesday against the Heat remains to be seen. Owners have to hope the Raptors want to do some fine tuning for the playoffs and throw the regulars out there for the finale.
Apr 9 - 9:25 PM

DeMar DeRozan and Jonas Valanciunas will return to action for Monday's game against the Pistons.

Both these guys hit the sidelines for a rest day on Sunday, but they were never expected to miss Monday's game as well. Feel free to get them active for a favorable matchup against Detroit.
Apr 9 - 5:53 PM

DeMar DeRozan and Jonas Valanciunas will rest on Sunday vs. the Magic.

Raptors coach Dwane Casey recently said he wasn't planning to rest his guys, but here we are. This isn't a total surprise with the No. 1 seed locked up, though. Delon Wright was the big winner the last time DeRozan sat out, playing 28 minutes with 10 points, five rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block. C.J. Miles and Norm Powell are candidates to get a bump as well.
Apr 8 - 4:31 PM

DeMar DeRozan posted 12 points on 5-of-17 shooting in Friday's ugly 93-72 win against Indiana.

DeRo also added eight assists, five rebounds and two steals with a blocked shot to salvage the fantasy stat line. Despite the poor shooting night all around for the team, the Raps were able to post a new franchise record for wins in a season with 57. They won the Atlantic Division for the fourth time in the past five years, and they clinched the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference for the first time in team history.
Apr 6 - 10:32 PM

DeMar DeRozan finished Saturday's game at Boston with 32 points across 36 minutes.

DeRozan was a solid 12-of-19 from the field, although he was a lackluster 0-of-5 from behind the 3-point line. He also contributed with seven assists, seven rebounds and a blocked shot, posting his second-highest point total since Feb. 23. While he is just 1-of-16 from behind the arc over the past five outings, he is contributing well sharing the ball. He has seven or more assists in each of the past three games, averaging 19.3 points and 7.3 assists per contests.
Mar 31 - 10:15 PM

DeMar DeRozan was good for just 11 points across 34 minutes in Sunday's game against the Clippers.

DeRozan struggled with his shot, hitting just 3-of-12 from the field, including 0-of-1 from behind the 3-point line. It appears that rest hasn't done him very good, as he was given off on Tuesday. Since returning, he is 0-of-8 in three games from behind the 3-point line. The rest appears to have interrupted his rhythm. He'll get more rest in the upcoming week, as Toronto has just two games on the schedule. He'll likely see more rest down the stretch, but at least there are no more back-to-back sets until April 3-4 and April 8-9.
Mar 25 - 9:19 PM

DeMar DeRozan returned on Wednesday with 21 points (6-of-15 FGs, 9-of-10 FTs), five assists and three rebounds in 35 minutes.

Toronto rested DeRozan in the first half of a back-to-back on Tuesday, although he was technically on the injury report with a bruised left thigh. They're safely locked into the No. 1 seed and fantasy owners should prepare for at least a few more DNPs -- the Raptors play back-to-back sets on Apr. 3-4 and 8-9. Until then, at least, it should be safe to plug DeRozan back into active lineups.

DeMar DeRozan (rest) will play Wednesday vs. the Cavs, as expected.

DeRozan was rested on Tuesday for the first game of this back-to-back set, but he was always expected to return to the floor for tonight's game. With DeRozan back in action, Malcolm Miller will return to the second unit, and Kyle Lowry's usage will take a slight hit. Feel free to get him active.
Mar 21 - 5:42 PM

DeMar DeRozan (rest) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. Orlando.

Raptors coach Dwane Casey hinted earlier in the day that he might rest one of his top guns on Tuesday night, which is the front end of a back-to-back. In addition, Tuesday and Wednesday's games are also the ninth and tenth games Toronto plays over a 16-day stretch. Casey has not yet announced who will start in place of DeRozan, but C.J. Miles, Norman Powell and Malcolm Miller will likely divvy up excess minutes. Fred VanVleet (hand) has also been ruled out, so Delon Wright will log heavy minutes as well.
Mar 20 - 5:44 PM

Raptors coach Dwane Casey hinted that he might consider resting on his starters either Tuesday vs. the Magic or Wednesday vs. the Cavs.

In addition to Tuesday and Wednesday's contests being a back-to-back, they are also the ninth and tenth games Toronto plays over a 16-day stretch. When asked about resting one of his guys, Casey said: "Yeah, we may do that. It's something we'll look at." Casey also added they'd prefer to rest guys now than right before the playoffs, so they don't lose their rhythm. Kyle Lowry was rested last week, which makes DeMar DeRozan and/or Serge Ibaka likely candidates if Casey decides to go that route.
Mar 20 - 1:51 PM

DeMar DeRozan scored 24 points on 8-of-18 shooting Sunday, to go with three rebounds, three 3-pointers, five assists and just one turnover in 33 minutes.

DeRozan struggled to get his shot to drop through the first half of action, but he turned it around after halftime with Kyle Lowry hitting the bench early in the third due to foul trouble. As a team, the Raptors struggled with foul trouble which is perhaps why tempers flared late when DeRozan felt he was fouled by Corey Brewer on a layup attempt, resulting in DeRozan picking up a double tech with eight seconds left and getting ejected, along with Serge Ibaka and his head coach Dwane Casey.
Mar 18 - 5:13 PM

DeMar DeRozan scored 29 points with four rebounds, six assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 41 minutes during a 122-115 overtime win over the Mavs on Friday.

This win ties the Blazers for the longest active winning streak at 11 to help Toronto hold their five-game lead over Boston. The Raptors also rested Kyle Lowry in this game, and after the game DeRozan said he "for sure" felt like he just played his seventh game in 11 days. The Raptors have a back-to-back set coming up on Mar. 20-21, so there's a very good chance DeRozan is out for one of those games.
