Lucas Nogueira fell out of the Raptors' rotation on Wednesday.
Jason Thompson served as Toronto's backup center tonight and small-ball lineups were plentiful, so it's no surprise to see Bebe pick up a DNP-CD. May 11 - 10:56 PM

Coach Dwane Casey said Lucas Nogueira is a possibility for playing time on Wednesday.

He looked a little lost in his 13 minutes out there in Game 4 and the Raptors were torched by the lineup with Luol Deng at center. If you were planning on punting with Nogueira at center, you might want to reconsider.
May 11 - 6:23 PM

Lucas Nogueira scored two points with five rebounds in 13 minutes against the Heat on Monday.

He was a little lost in this game. That's no surprise because Nogueira made his career playoff debut. Unless Bismack Biyombo gets into foul trouble, Bebe isn't a fantasy option.
May 9 - 11:10 PM

Lucas Nogueira is active for Monday night against the Heat.

He might actually play, depending on how it works out for Bismack Biyombo. Nogueira is still too risky to use in DFS.
May 9 - 7:43 PM

Lucas Nogueira started in place of Jonas Valanciunas (rest) on Wednesday, posting six points, 10 rebounds, three assists, three blocks and one steal in 36 minutes vs. the Nets.

The Raptors acquired Nogueira in a salary-dump for John Salmons a few years ago, and they have to be thrilled to have the 23-year-old center in their pool of developing talent. Although he didn't have a substantial role this season, that could change if Bismack Biyombo leaves Toronto in free agency.
Apr 13 - 10:29 PM

Delon Wright, Norman Powell, Bruno Caboclo, Jason Thompson and Lucas Nogueira will start against the Nets on Wednesday.

Well this should be fun. Nogueira is quite a shot blocker and he should get a big chance tonight. There are still other options out there in DFS.
Apr 13 - 7:12 PM

The Raptors have recalled Bruno Caboclo, Lucas Nogueira and Delon Wright.

Noguiera does get some run on occasion, but he very unlikely to play when the Raptors are healthy at center.
Mar 14 - 2:53 PM

Raptors recall Lucas Nogueira from the D-League.

With Jonas Valanciunas and Bismack Biyombo healthy, there is no current role for Bebe in Toronto's rotation.
Mar 7 - 9:01 AM

Raptors recalled Bruno Caboclo, Lucas Nogueira and Norman Powell.

Nogueira has played some decent ball and saw five minutes on Wednesday. He won't have value while the Raptors are healthy.
Mar 4 - 4:32 PM

Raptors recall C Lucas Nogueira from the D-League.

Bebe flashed some potential when Jonas Valanciunas (hand) was out, but he's not going to be in the rotation with J.V. healthy and Bismack Biyombo playing well.
Jan 3 - 2:14 PM

Lucas Noguiera (ankle) returned to the rotation on Sunday with three points, two boards, two steals and one block in 15 minutes.

"We've got to live by making teams feel us defensively," Casey said. The Raptors are doing that lately, allowing a mere 86.5 points over their past four games, all victories, and their 16-9 record is good enough for second place in the Eastern conference behind Cleveland. Noguiera has earned a spot in the rotation while Jonas Valanciunas (hand) is out, but isn't a viable fantasy option outside of the deepest leagues.

Lucas Nogueira (ankle) will be available to play Sunday against the 76ers.

Bebe was also available to play on Friday, but he didn't actually step foot on the court. If the game turns into a blowout, there's a chance Bebe plays, but there's too much uncertainty here to consider using him in most leagues.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 05:49:00 PM

Lucas Nogueira (ankle) will be available to play Friday against the Bucks.

Nogueira spent the past two games on the sidelines with an ankle injury, but he could be back out there tonight. He's not really worth deploying in most settings.
Fri, Dec 11, 2015 07:08:00 PM

Lucas Nogueira (sprained left ankle) will miss Wednesday's game against the Spurs.

It'll be Nogueira's second straight game on the sidelines, which will ensure Bismack Biyombo gets a healthy heaping of minutes. Bebe belongs on the waiver wire in most leagues.
Wed, Dec 9, 2015 06:35:00 PM

Lucas Nogueira (sprained left ankle) will not play against the Lakers on Monday night.

It's too bad because he was playing well. He had some swelling and tried to play through it. It'll be Bismack Biyombo starting while Patrick Patterson and Luis Scola would get a few more minutes at the five.
