Lucas Nogueira (sore left hamstring) is likely to sit out Sunday's exhibition.

It sounds like a precautionary night off for the 23-year-old, who appeared in only six games for Toronto last year. He's buried behind Jonas Valanciunas and Bismack Biyombo, making it unlikely that he'll crack the rotation this season.
Oct 4 - 6:26 PM

Lucas Nogueira grabbed 16 rebounds and added 11 points, three blocks and a steal in Thursday's exhibition loss to the Bulls.

It's good to see him making the most out of his Summer League reps but he'll need quite a bit of help to have any fantasy value this season.
Jul 16 - 11:55 PM

Lucas Nogueira nabbed 13 rebounds in Monday's exhibition against the Rockets, and also chipped in with six points, three assists, one steal and five blocks in 23 minutes.

Nogueira isn't going to get a lot of on-the-job training this season with the Raptors in the middle of the Eastern Conference playoff chase. That said, it's good to see him putting up numbers when given the chance in Summer League.
Jul 14 - 12:33 AM

The Raptors have recalled Lucas Nogueira from the D-League.

Nogeuira averaged 8.3 points, 10.0 rebounds, 2.0 blocks over 20.0 minutes in four games during his latest stint with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants, but he's unlikely to see much time with the Raptors. While Bebe could be a factor in the Raptors' future plans, he can be left on the waiver wire for this season.
Mar 26 - 11:43 AM

Lucas Nogueira will be with the Raptors for Monday's game in Indiana.

The Raptors have a road game on a back-to-back set, so their fantasy owners are on notice. Nogueira likely won't be in the rotation if the Raptors do not sit guys tonight.
Mar 16 - 5:36 PM

The Raptors have sent down Lucas Nogueira for a D-League stint.

This will be Nogueira's first time in the D-League, and he'll get some valuable experience. He's only managed to leave the bench for the Raptors six times this season, and with averages of 1.0 point and 1.8 rebounds per game, he should not be owned in any leagues.
Mar 12 - 12:36 PM

Lucas Nogueira is on the Raptors' inactive list on Wednesday due to a groin injury.

The 22-year-old has been dealing with a groin injury all season and it's unfortunate that he can't stay healthy. He remains a project for the Raptors and he's played a total of 20 minutes all season, so his absence will go unnoticed in the vast majority of fantasy leagues.
Feb 4 - 6:12 PM

Lucas Nogueira is active on Wednesday vs. his former team, the Atlanta Hawks.

Greg Stiemsma (ankle) is out on Wednesday so Nogueira will have a chance to suit up against his old team. Neither player will have enough fantasy value to be owned in almost any league.

Lucas Nogueira (groin) will play on Wednesday.

He has been out all preseason with his groin injury and needed six weeks to recover from the injury over the summer. Nogueira is a big project and won't have fantasy value this season.
Wed, Oct 22, 2014 07:07:00 PM

Lucas Nogueira is dealing with a bad groin strain and will be held out for a few weeks.

Bebe has been limited by the injury for over a week and it looks like the Raptors are worried enough to shut him down for a a weeks so that so it doesn't become a lingering issue. While the 22-year-old possesses plenty of upside, he can safely be ignored by fantasy owners as he faces an uphill battle for minutes in Toronto's deep frontcourt.

Raptors C Lucas Noguiera (groin) will not play vs. the Kings on Tuesday.

He's been limited by the injury for at least a week, robbing him of a valuable chance to carve out a bench role. Toronto has a deep frontcourt with multiple healthy veterans ahead of Noguiera on the depth chart, so there's no reason to touch him on draft day.
Tue, Oct 7, 2014 03:32:00 PM

Lucas Nogueira (groin) was limited in training camp on Tuesday.

He was overseas last year in Spain, but the Raptors bought out his contract. Nogueira showed some promise with his lengthy wingspan and he could eventually get in the rotation. However, it's going to take him a while to get all those arms and legs under contract. He can be ignored in almost all leagues.
Tue, Sep 30, 2014 07:11:00 PM

Lucas Nogueira is expected to get some extra reps at training camp.

He's not going to get much playing time in the regular reason, so let this serve as a reminder to not get excited about drafting him in redraft leagues. Nogueira worked out with Hakeem Olajuwon this summer and has a lengthy wingspan, so he does have some potential.
Fri, Sep 26, 2014 10:19:00 AM

Lucas Nogueira worked out with Hakeem Olajuwon this week.

It's a popular move among big men and the young Brazilian does need some skills around the basket. He is very rangy and has the potential to be a big-time shot blocker, but he's still a long way from being a regular contributor. Nogueira isn't a worthwhile target in even keeper formats.
