Greivis Vasquez started at SG in place of DeMar DeRozan (rest) on Tuesday, notching 11 points, three 3-pointers, five rebounds, seven assists and one steal in 32 minutes vs. the Celtics.
Toronto has secured home-court advantage for the first round of the playoffs, which made DeRozan's rest day unsurprising. He may still return for Wednesday's season finale, during which the Raptors can set a new franchise record for wins in a season, so owners should double-check the injury report before committing to Vasquez.

Greivis Vasquez will slide into the starting lineup for Tuesday's game vs. the Celtics with DeMar DeRozan (rest) unavailable.

In 28 starts this season he's averaging 10.9 points on 43.4 percent shooting, 1.9 triples, 3.0 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 0.6 steals. Toronto plays again on Wednesday but there are 28 teams playing and most fantasy GMs will be awash in players with unusually large roles on the final day of the season, so Vasquez doesn't stand out as a great pickup.
Apr 14 - 6:49 PM

Greivis Vasquez turned in a positive stat line against the Hornets on Wednesday with 16 points, five rebounds, four assists and four 3-pointers.

He failed to top eight points in four of his last five, so Vasquez definitely needed a big game for his confidence. He's not at risk of losing his playing time, but the inconsistency makes it hard to trust him in standard fantasy leagues. He'll get a decent matchup against the Magic on Friday.
Apr 8 - 9:57 PM

Greivis Vasquez hit 5-of-6 shots and 4-of-5 3-pointers for 14 points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal in Wednesday's win over Minnesota.

He was 1-of-10 for three points and seven assists in his last game, so this was a much better showing, as he started for Kyle Lowry. Lowry is doubtful for Friday's game, so Vasquez should make for a decent play in that one, as long as his shots are falling.
Apr 2 - 12:33 AM

Greivis Vasquez hit just 1-of-10 shots (including a three) for three points, three boards, seven assists and two steals in 34 minutes on Monday.

Kyle Lowry is still out indefinitely and that keeps Vasquez as a potential fantasy option until Lowry returns. Vasquez just isn't very good and there's no guarantee that he helps owners out on any given night.
Mar 31 - 1:31 AM

Greivis Vasquez scored five points with one rebound, five assists and one 3-pointer against the Lakers on Friday.

It's been DeMar DeRozan and Lou Williams handling the ball more for the Raptors, so there have been some quiet nights from Vasquez lately. Kyle Lowry (back) doesn't seem to be progressing and he could miss more time. If you need a point guard who can hit some treys, give him a look.
Mar 28 - 1:34 AM

Greivis Vasquez scored 22 points in the starting lineup against the Bulls on Wednesday with two rebounds, three assists, one steal and six 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

He's been very disappointing in his starts at point guard this season and finally came up big tonight in a losing effort. Kyle Lowry has a small chance to return on Friday against the Lakers, so there's no need to be too aggressive in adding Vasquez. If you want help this weekend and aren't limited with matchup moves, give him a look.
Mar 26 - 12:12 AM

Greivis Vasquez took over at PG once Kyle Lowry (back spasms) exited Tuesday's game, and he finished with seven points, four rebounds, three assists, one steal and three turnovers.

It's possible that Lowry will miss more games, as back injuries are easy to aggravate, so owners in need of 3-pointers and assists should keep a close eye on Vasquez this week. The Raptors conclude the week with home games vs. the Bulls (Wednesday) and Lakers (Friday).
Mar 24 - 10:41 PM

Greivis Vasquez had 12 points, one assist and four turnovers while filling in at PG for Kyle Lowry (back) on Sunday, failing to contribute any rebounds or steals in 34 minutes of action.

The Raptors are playing it safe with Lowry and he could return as soon as Tuesday vs. the Pistons, which makes Vasquez an unappealing option in weekly lineups. In 49 games off the bench this season he's averaging 8.7 points, 1.5 threes, 2.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists and a mere 0.5 steals.
Mar 22 - 6:51 PM

Greivis Vasquez scored 11 points with four rebounds, six assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes against the Bulls on Friday.

Kyle Lowry (back) did not play, but he's getting closer to a return. The Raptors have a day off on Saturday before they take on the Knicks, so Lowry has a good chance to suit up for that one. Vasquez is only worth a look if you need Lowry insurance or are desperate for a point guard on Sunday.
Mar 21 - 1:12 AM

Greivis Vasquez will start against the Bulls on Friday.

Kyle Lowry (back) is going to come off the bench, so it's fair to assume Lowry isn't 100 percent. That said, it's hard to trust Vasquez tonight with such an unclear picture of how the rotation is going to shake out.
Mar 20 - 7:30 PM

Greivis Vasquez hit 4-of-10 shots and three 3-pointers for 11 points, two rebounds, five assists and a steal in Wednesday's win over the Wolves.

Kyle Lowry left this game with a back injury and if he's going to miss time, Vasquez will be worth owning for any games Lowry misses.
Mar 19 - 12:07 AM

Greivis Vasquez had six points, 13 assists, two steals and a 3-pointer on 2-of-7 shooting in a team-high 40 minutes on Wednesday.

Kyle Lowry sat out again tonight and we're not sure when he'll play again. Anytime he's out, Vasquez is capable of a big line, and he came through tonight, at least in respect to the dimes.
Mar 5 - 12:48 AM

Greivis Vasquez scored 12 points on 5-of-8 from the field with one rebound, five assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the 76ers on Monday.

That's pretty good efficiency, but the usage wasn't there with DeMar DeRozan being a one-man band. Vasquez has been solid so far in his starts, putting up a 14-point, six-dime line on Saturday. He should be worth starting in standard leagues while Kyle Lowry (finger) is out.
Mar 2 - 10:57 PM

Greivis Vasquez scored 14 points in a start against the Knicks on Saturday with three rebounds, six assists and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

There's a chance that Kyle Lowry needs to rest more, which makes sense because he's looked awful for over one month. Vasquez has a lot of potential as the starting point guard and even led the NBA in total dimes back in 2012-13. He's worth a look if you want some short-term help at point guard and is capable of putting up this type of line most nights.
