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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Dwane Casey hinted that Lucas Nogueira could earn more playing time with Jonas Valanciunas (hand) sidelined.

"He did a good job of that [Wednesday] night: understanding his role," Casey said. "That role [will] continue to grow [if he] continues to do what he did. The minutes will continue to grow. The trust from his teammates will continue to get there." Bebe played a season-high 25 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Warriors, responding with 14 points, four rebounds, three dimes and a steal on 7-of-9 shooting while starter Bismack Biyombo (no points, five rebounds) bottomed out in 14.5 minutes.

Lucas Nogueira thrived during Saturday's tough loss, notching 14 points on 7-of-9 shooting with four rebounds, three assists and one steal in 25 minutes of action.

He came off the bench but outplayed Bismack Biyombo in every facet of the game, even showing great chemistry with Kyle Lowry on a series of easy lobs. This makes two solid games for Nogueira and he's worth a speculative pickup in very deep leagues, as the starting C job is within reach until Jonas Valanciunas (hand) returns, but most owners should monitor Bebe from afar.

Raptors head coach Dwane Casey is pleased with Lucas Nogueira's recent play.

"He did a good job of that [Wednesday] night: understanding his role," Casey said. "That role [will] continue to grow [if he] continues to do what he did. The minutes will continue to grow. The trust from his teammates will continue to get there. That’s where you kind of carve out your niche or take your position, take someone’s spot in the rotation - by continuing to do that, little by little, doing the little things, staying in your lane, like he did [Wednesday] night." Nogueira has played at least 16 minutes in each of his last two games, but he still has a long way to go before he pops up on the fantasy radar.

Lucas Nogueira scored a career-high six points with one rebound and one steal in 16 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday.

Hey, he's getting minutes. He had a some nice rolls to the basket and doesn't look to be nearly as inept as he was in Summer League. Nogueira still has a mountain to climb for any fantasy value in almost any league.
