Greivis Vasquez started at shooting guard again and had 18 points, four rebounds, six assists, a steal and four 3-pointers on 7-of-9 shooting in 31 minutes on Wednesday.
After a slow start to his starting tenure, Vasquez has hit double digits in scoring in three of his last four games, and is averaging 10.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.2 3-pointers over his last five. And that includes a dud of three points on 1-of-8 shooting a week ago. If you need a shooting guard and Mario Chalmers isn't available, think about grabbing Vasquez. Jan 29 - 12:01 AM

Greivis Vasquez played 28 minutes on Tuesday but had only seven points, four rebounds and four assists in the Raptors' 104-91 victory.

He shot 2-of-6 from the field and has taken more than 10 shots just three times in January. DeMar DeRozan's return has ensured that Vasquez's usage rate won't improve despite his newly-minted starting job. Consider him a low-end option who can help with 3-pointers and assists, but little else.

Greivis Vasquez started Wednesday's game in Memphis, but finished with only three points on 1-of-8 shooting in the Raptors' road loss.

Vasquez logged 22 minutes and he's been underwhelming since overtaking Terrence Ross for a starting job. He chipped in two steals tonight and deep-league owners may find him to be a worthwhile gamble, but everyone should avoid him while Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, James Johnson and Ross are all healthy.

Greivis Vasquez started at shooting guard in Monday's win, scoring 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting with two rebounds, three assists and one triple in 31 minutes of action.

Vasquez isn't a good bet to produce more than this with the Raptors at full strength so he's only worth a look in deeper formats.
Jan 20 - 12:51 AM

Greivis Vasquez will draw the start over Terrence Ross for Monday's game against the Bucks.

Vasquez made five previous starts this season when DeMar DeRozan was injured, and averaged 12.2 points and 4.8 assists on 44 percent shooting during that span. While coach Dwane Casey didn't indicate whether or not the move was permanent, Vasquez is worth a look in most leagues as longs as he holds onto the starting spot.
Jan 19 - 7:19 PM

Greivis Vasquez started the second half of Sunday's game, putting up 16 points, nine assists (season-high), four 3-pointers, two rebounds, two steals, and three turnovers.

Head coach Dwane Casey said he felt Vasquez was guarding Tyreke Evans better than any other player, which is why he decided to make the switch and send Terrence Ross to the bench. It's unclear at this point if Vasquez will stick with the starting unit, but he's struggled with consistency throughout the season, so we'd like to see another game like this one before we recommend adding him in standard leagues.
Jan 18 - 7:12 PM

Greivis Vasquez scored 16 points on 7-of-9 shooting (including two threes) with three rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 25 minutes off the bench on Monday.

Vasquez has held very low-end value in 12-team leagues over the last two weeks and he's about as up-and-down as they come. With DeMar DeRozan's return on the horizon, owners should only look at him as a desperation option in those formats.
Jan 12 - 11:01 PM

Greivis Vasquez couldn't duplicate Friday's 25-point outburst vs. Phoenix on Sunday, missing all six of his field goals to finish with two points, two rebounds and four assists.

He turned the ball over three times in 19 minutes of action, and he's been a liability in most formats despite an increased role in DeMar DeRozan's absence. His consistent 3-pointers and assists may look good on your waiver wire, but don't overlook his poisonous shooting over Toronto's past five games -- 36.1 percent from the field and a mere 42.9 percent from the FT line.
Jan 4 - 10:37 PM

Greivis Vasquez got hot against the Warriors on Friday, scoring 25 points on 10-of-19 shooting (including five threes) with five rebounds, seven assists and one steal in 34 minutes.

This wasn't exactly a defensive game and Vasquez has been up and down for a while now. With DeMar DeRozan returning next Thursday, this seems like a bad time for owners to chase unless they're doing it as a coin flip in a daily situation.
Jan 3 - 3:08 AM

Greivis Vasquez was terrific off the bench against the Clippers on Saturday with 16 points, four rebounds, six assists and four 3-pointers.

It's been a bumpy ride for Vasquez and he's made just 37.9 percent from the field over his previous 10 games. Vasquez's minutes have taken a dip to just 21.4 per game in that span, so he's not really going to be worth owning in standard leagues.

Greivis Vasquez managed just two points on 1-of-7 shooting with four assists in 15 minutes of action on Monday.

Vasquez looked awful tonight and despite his big Sunday outing (21 points, five assists, three treys) he hasn't been very productive since DeMar DeRozan got hurt. DeRozan still isn't close to a return, but Vasquez can be left on the wire in 12-team standard formats.

Greivis Vasquez took advantage of the increased opportunity with Landry Fields (concussion) sidelined on Sunday, and put up 21 points (three 3-pointers), five assists, and four rebounds in a Raptors' win.

Vasquez has been struggling lately coming off the bench, but got things going tonight against a terrible Knicks team. The Knicks often give up big lines to opposing guards, so that can't be discounted with tonight's line. Given how inconsistent Vasquez' has been this year, we'll need to see a couple more games like this before recommending the add in standard leagues.

Greivis Vasquez scored four points on 2-of-9 shooting with two rebounds and four assists in 20 minutes off the bench on Monday.

Vasquez just hasn't gotten it done during his window of opportunity and owners can feel free to move on. That said, he'll probably turn things around and level out at the low-end of 14-16 team leagues.

Greivis Vasquez scored 10 points with two threes, four assists and one block in 25 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Vasquez looked poised to be a late-round value after DeMar DeRozan's injury but it hasn't worked out that way. Folks were panicked after Landry Fields moved into the starting lineup on Tuesday against the Cavs and Vasquez played just 13 minutes, but that looks like it was a matchup thing. The problem has simply been Vasquez's punchless output, and he doesn't have the body of work that fellow reserve guard Lou Williams has. Feel free to move on for a hot free agent, even if Vasquez should hang around the bottom of 12-14 team formats.

Greivis Vasquez (flu) shifted to a bench role on Tuesday and finished a loss the Cavaliers with three points, two assists and one turnover in only 13 minutes.

Lou Williams isn't a natural PG so Vasquez's temporary move to the starting lineup left Toronto's bench without "the head of the snake," to use coach Dwane Casey's description of Vasquez. He's been great in DeMar DeRozan's absence and fantasy owners should monitor his role over the next game or two before dumping him back onto the waiver wire -- there are no guarantees that Landry Fields will continue starting, as this may have been a one-game change vs. LeBron James and the Cavs.
