Landry Fields (back) is available to play against the Nets on Wednesday.
He missed Game 4 on Sunday due to back spasms which he appeared to suffer in Game 3. Fields is used more for when the Raptors need size or rebounding on free throw attempts and he's no lock to see double-digit minutes tonight. Apr 30 - 6:23 PM

Landry Fields will not play against the Nets on Sunday due to back spasms.

He went diving into the stands on Friday and perhaps that's what caused this injury. Fields had back spasms earlier in his career and missed plenty of action, so he could be looking at a multiple-game absence. Greivis Vasquez and John Salmons may get some more run.
Apr 27 - 6:26 PM

Landry Fields may return to the Raptors' rotation for Game 2 on Tuesday.

Fields "could get some time" defending Paul Pierce or Joe Johnson, according to beat writer Ryan Wolstat. He recently missed time with an upper respiratory illness but he's since fully recovered, and if he does play his minutes should come at the expense of Terrence Ross or John Salmons.
Apr 21 - 2:01 PM

Landry Fields will not play against the Bucks on Monday due to an upper-respiratory illness.

He's been out of the rotation anyway and the Raptors won't miss him. Fields probably won't play on Wednesday night and has played just 10.7 minutes per game in 30 outings. Obviously, signing him was a bit of a mistake a couple off seasons ago.
Apr 14 - 5:55 PM

Landry Fields did not make the trip to Detroit as he is still fighting an upper respiratory sickness.

Even if Fields was in uniform, he might not have played as he's picked up his fair share of DNPs this season. Fields is averaging 2.3 points, and 2.0 rebounds on the season, and is not a fantasy option in any format.
Apr 13 - 2:16 PM

Landry Fields will not play against the Knicks on Friday due to a respiratory illness.

He won't get to play against his former team tonight, but the illness might have been a moot point in that regard considering he has four straight DNPs. Fields has no fantasy value.
Apr 11 - 5:35 PM

Landry Fields played well as a fill-in starter for Terrence Ross (ankle) on Sunday, scoring eight points on 4-of-5 shooting with six rebounds and one steal.

This came out of the blue given Fields' rough season, to put it mildly. The four-year veteran missed time after having wrist surgery and he's averaging a career-worst 2.3 points on 35.6 percent shooting, a far cry from his impressive rookie campaign with the Knicks (9.7 points, 39.3 percent from downtown). Ross may be ready to play in Toronto's next game on Friday and there's no reason to consider Fields in average fantasy formats despite this solid performance.
Mar 2 - 6:44 PM

Landry Fields will start for the Raptors on Sunday in place of Terrence Ross (ankle).

John Salmons started the second half after Ross was injured on Thursday, but coach Dwane Casey probably doesn't want to mess with his bench chemistry. The Raptors' next game is Friday, giving Ross plenty of time to recover, so there's not a lot of upside for Fields -- he's averaging 2.3 points per game this season.
Mar 2 - 3:36 PM

Landry Fields will be in uniform on Tuesday for the first time since having wrist surgery in January.

Whether he'll play is another question entirely, and either way he's not on fantasy radars, but it's good to see him healthy again. The Raptors will pay him another guaranteed $6.3 million next season before his contract mercifully expires in the summer of 2015.
Feb 18 - 6:06 PM

Landry Fields had "minor" surgery to address a nerve issue in his right wrist on Tuesday, and he won't resume basketball activities for three weeks.

Fields previously had elbow surgery to address his troublesome ulnar nerve, and his tenure with the Raptors is going from bad to worse. He's averaging just 2.4 points on 35.6 percent shooting this season, and had fallen out of the rotation with John Salmons playing well in a reserve role.
Jan 22 - 11:57 AM

Landry Fields (personal reasons) didn't travel with the Raptors for Monday's game in Charlotte.

Fields hasn't had a significant foothold in the rotation all season and his absence won't alter any fantasy lineups.
Jan 20 - 1:11 PM

Landry Fields is active for Friday's game against the Sixers.

After getting the start on Sunday night following the Rudy Gay deal, Fields' minutes dropped to just 19 on Tuesday night. He was dealing with a neck injury during Friday morning's shootaround, but that has little to do with his lack of fantasy value. Terrence Ross serves as a much better pickup in most leagues.

Landry Fields (neck) went through shootaround and is expected to play in Friday's tilt vs. the 76ers.

With Rudy Gay's departure, Fields had entered the starting lineup. However, in his previous start he finished with zero points on six shot attempts in 31 minutes of play. He is averaging 3.2 points, and 2.9 rebounds on the season, which tells you where Landry's fantasy value is, leave him on the wire.
Fri, Dec 13, 2013 02:06:00 PM

Landry Fields moved into the Raptors' starting lineup on Sunday but he missed all six of his shot attempts to finish scoreless with five rebounds in 31 minutes.

Fields' game isn't geared toward fantasy value and nothing about his play this season suggests he's on the verge of a breakout with more playing time. Rudy Gay's departure could permanently hand him the SF job, but Terrence Ross also gains significant ground without Gay hogging playing time and shots. Owners should take a wait-and-see approach as Dwane Casey sorts out his new rotations.

Dwane Casey expects Landry Fields to handle the ball and facilitate the offense more often this season.

Fields' 2012-13 season was splotched with DNPs related to his elbow, which was surgically-repaired last November. Even if he does handle the ball more often with the second unit, it's hard to like his fantasy value with Terrence Ross, Austin Daye, Steve Novak and Quincy Acy all vying for minutes on the wings.
