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.
Oct 22 - 7:07 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.
Oct 9 - 1:32 PM

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.
Oct 7 - 3:32 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.
Sep 30 - 7:11 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.
Sep 26 - 10:19 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.
Aug 29 - 1:42 PM

The Raptors officially signed C Lucas Nogueira on Sunday.

Nogueira averaged 5.0 points, 5.8 rebounds, 0.6 steals, 0.6 blocks during Las Vegas Summer League, and he's not likely to be an impact player for the 2014-15 fantasy season.
Aug 3 - 1:13 PM

The Raptors will reportedly buyout Lucas Nogueira's contract with Spanish club Estudiantes.

The Raptors will pay around $550,000 and Nogueira will pay around $250,000 to his old team. HIs impact wasn't as great in Las Vegas this summer compared to 2013, averaging 5.0 points, 5.8 boards, 0.6 steals and 0.6 blocks. He's still extremely raw and is unlikely to make an impact with Toronto this season.

The Toronto Raptors are working on buyout for Lucas Nogueira with his Spanish club.

Noguiera was acquired as part of the Lou Williams trade, and the Raptors think he has the ability to make an impact down the road. Nogueira's knee issues are reportedly gone and he has the size and ability to be a player some day, so a buyout with his Spanish club makes a lot of sense for the Raptors.
Jul 10 - 12:01 PM

The Raptors will have Lucas Nogueira on their summer league roster.

He was just dealt to the Raptors on a Lou Williams trade and the Raptors will give him a look. Nogueira was a factor at summer league last year and displayed his length, so we'll see if he's added a little polish to his game. He's too raw to draft in most leagues next season.
Jul 7 - 11:34 AM

The Hawks traded 7'0" center Lucas Nogueira to the Raptors as part of Sunday's three-player swap.

Nogueira played in Spain last season and showed terrific defensive potential, though he was slowed by severe tendinitis in both knees for a few months. It's unclear whether he'll suit up for the Raptors or spend another year in Europe.
Jun 29 - 8:52 PM

Lucas Nogueira is currently working out in Atlanta.

He played in Spain last season after showing his potential at Las Vegas Summer League. Nogueira won't be playing in Spain this year and will either join the Hawks or play in Euroleague. He's not on the fantasy radar despite some intriguing blocking numbers in his brief career.
Jun 14 - 1:14 PM

Lucas Nogeira is expected to play in Las Vegas Summer League in July.

The NBA world got to know the 7'0" Brazilian last July and he does need some work. Although, Nogueira did block 2.4 shots per game in 21.8 minutes thanks to his 7'6" wingspan. He will either play in Euroleague or join the Hawks in 2014-15.
Jun 9 - 9:48 AM

Lucas Nogueira said he will not re-sign in Spain and could join the Hawks or play in Euroleague.

He has a buyout of $600,000 from the Hawks, who own his draft rights. Noguiera is all arms and legs, but he does have some nice upside as a defensive big man. He was in Vegas last summer and could get another chance to show what he could do again in July.
