Terrence Ross took a knee to his thigh during Sunday's practice, but it's not believed to be serious.

Ross has already been dealing with a knee issue, but he did play in the preseason finale. There will be an update on Monday, but Ross should be fine for the season opener. He's not a reliable option in standard leagues while the Raptors are healthy.
Oct 23 - 1:09 PM

Terrence Ross will dress and Cory Joseph is out with flu-like symptoms for Friday.

The Raptors have said Ross is in, then out, and now he's in again today.
Oct 21 - 7:07 PM

Terrence Ross (knee) will not play on Friday.

It was reported earlier Ross was going to play, but the Raptors will keep him out. He still should be able to suit up for the opener as the first wing off the bench. He and Norman Powell negate each other in the second unit.

Terrence Ross (knee) will play on Friday vs. the Wizards, while Cory Joseph (illness) has been ruled out.

Ross was able to get up some shots on Wednesday and this confirms that he will be ready for opening night, barring a setback. The Raptors have been talking him up a ton, but he's not a lock to be the first wing off the bench with Norman Powell around. Ross is only on the radar in deeper formats.
Oct 21 - 11:24 AM

Terrence Ross (knee) will not suit up for Wednesday's preseason game against the Pistons.

Ross was able to get on the court for some light shooting during Wednesday morning's shootaround, so he is making progress, although it seems unlikely that he'll be able to suit up for Toronto's final two preseason games. He should be good to go by opening night, but Ross won't be a fantasy hoops factor this season stuck in a reserve role fighting for minutes with Norman Powell.
Oct 19 - 12:39 PM

Terrence Ross (knee) did not practice on Monday but the Raptors are expecting him back next week.

Additionally, the Raptors believe he will be ready for opening night. Ross has been hyped quite a bit by the Raptors this summer, but his fantasy outlook is still pretty bleak -- he's going to be fighting for minutes off the bench with impressive second-year player Norman Powell. Ross is only on the radar in deeper leagues.
Oct 17 - 1:59 PM

Terrence Ross (knee) will not play on Friday.

He tweaked his knee on a 360-degree jam in practice earlier this week. The good news is that the MRI came back clean, so he should be ready for the regular season.

Terrence Ross (knee) will not play against the Cavs on Thursday.

He tweaked his knee on a 360 jam, but the MRI came back clean. Chances are he will be missing time with this, but there is no timetable just yet. Ross is having himself a nice preseason, averaging 13.0 points per game. He's still going to be behind DeMarre Carroll during the season, though. With him out, there should be more minutes for Norman Powell.
Oct 13 - 7:07 PM

The Raptors are emphatically hyping up the progress Terrence Ross has made this offseason.

Raptors 905 coach David Gale spent almost every day in the gym training with Ross this summer, and apparently the work is beginning to pay off. Ross has reportedly improved his approach, focus and motor, and the two spent time working on Ross drawing contact and finishing the play. The goal is for Ross to get to the free throw line more, but the proof will be in the production given Ross has a career average of 0.8 FTA per game. Although Toronto is very encouraged and Ross appears to be more mature, we'll need to see the work translate to in-game situations in order to believe the improvement is real and meaningful. For what it's worth, Ross has studied Jamal Crawford's game extensively and spent the majority of the summer working on the "mental side of the game."
Oct 8 - 2:46 PM

Terrence Ross scored 23 points in 20 minutes on Monday, adding two assists, one steal, one turnover and four 3-pointers.

This is Ross' biggest preseason of his career and he's showing up in a big way. Norman Powell was coming for his minutes after the rookie went off after the break last year, but Ross has shown a really nice mixture as an offensive weapon in his two October games. Regardless, it doesn't look like either guy warrant a fantasy pick in most leagues. Powell scored seven points in 20 minutes.
Oct 3 - 11:45 PM

Terrence Ross scored 11 points with two rebounds, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 15 minutes on Saturday.

He came off the bench before Norman Powell, which will be a big position battle to watch in the second unit. That said, both Ross and Powell are going to have a tough time to get minutes this year, especially with DeMarre Carroll looking healthy today. Powell finished with five points, four rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer.
Oct 1 - 10:20 PM

Terrence Ross said he's put a lot of focus on getting stronger this summer.

"I’ve been putting a lot of focus on getting stronger too; that’s the main goal for me this offseason," said Ross. " I want to make sure I can be more physical when my team needs me to be. I want to continue to get stronger and be able to absorb contact better when I’m driving." Ross will be DeMarre Carroll's primary backup next year, so he won't have much fantasy value at all.
Jul 14 - 5:15 PM

Terrence Ross scored 14 points with three rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Heat on Monday.

He was better than DeMar DeRozan for most of this loss and even took some minutes away from the All-Star. Ross even played some minutes at the four with the Raptors looking for a lineup solution with so many small-ball combinations. He's on the radar as a DFS punt.
May 9 - 11:15 PM

Terrence Ross set a new playoff career-high with 19 points on 7-of-13 shooting in Tuesday's Game 1 loss to the Heat.

He also hit 2-of-7 from beyond the arc and added two boards, one assist and one steal in 27 minutes. Ross only averaged 12.1 minutes per game vs. the Hornets in round one, so coach Dwane Casey probably gave him some extra run simply because he had the hot hand tonight. The Raptors will play a lot of small ball and Norman Powell struggled tonight, so maybe Ross can build off his momentum in Game 2 on Thursday.
