Jared Sullinger is expected to miss roughly the next 2-3 months of action as he recovers from foot surgery, according to Raptors' GM Masai Ujiri.
While Ujiri acknowledged that there's a chance Sullinger can beat that timetable, that seems like a very unlikely scenario given how difficult the recovery process can be for big men coming back from foot surgery. This timetable would put Sullinger back on the court by December in a best-case scenario, but he'll more than likely be brought along very slowly once he is cleared for contact. Even in leagues with an IR-spot, it's tough to hang on to Sullinger as he was only a 10th round guy last year. Pascal Siakam will have the opportunity to start in Sullinger's absence, but Patrick Patterson and DeMarre Carroll will see the biggest boost in value. Oct 24 - 1:16 PM

Jared Sullinger will have a screw inserted into the fifth metatarsal of his left foot on Monday to alleviate symptomatic stress reactions, and he will be out indefinitely.

This is the same injury that limited Sullinger to just 58 games during the 2014-15 season, although that year he forewent surgery in order to let the injury heal naturally. A surgical procedure typically involves a longer timetable to return, so it's clear that Sullinger is going to miss significant time this year. This removes him from consideration as a late-round target in standard leagues, and it'll be Patrick Patterson and DeMarre Carroll picking up the slack in his absence. Dwane Casey prefers to bring Patterson off the bench, so perhaps Pascal Siakam will start sans Sullinger, although Patterson and Carroll would still earn the majority of the PF minutes. Carroll sees the biggest boost in value here.

Raptors coach Dwane Casey said Jared Sullinger (foot) is still being evaluated.

Casey added that Sullinger's foot just isn't progressing and he's looking increasingly doubtful for the season opener. The Raptors could go with Paskal Siakam in the starting unit, but Patrick Patterson would get a bump in minutes as well. This sounds very concerning for Sullinger and he's not a must-own player while we wait for the official word.

Jared Sullinger (left foot soreness) is doubtful to play in Toronto's season opener.

Sully went from questionable to doubtful quicker than Drake went from 0 to 100. With Sullinger more than likely out for the inaugural game of the season, Patrick Patterson should see more minutes.

Jared Sullinger (foot) will not play on Friday vs. the Wizards and coach Dwane Casey said he could miss the season opener.

Not good. Sullinger is still experiencing pain in his foot, so the Raptors are going to take another "look" at it. It sounds like they might run some tests, so we could have another update soon. With Sullinger iffy for the start of the season, Pascal Siakam could be in the rotation and Patrick Patterson will see a bump in minutes.
Oct 21 - 11:23 AM

Jared Sullinger (ankle) and Terrence Ross (knee) have been ruled out for Wednesday's preseason game against the Pistons.

Dwane Casey said that he's hopeful that Sullinger will be able to get on the floor for Friday's preseason finale against the Wizards, but he won't push him if he's not ready. As for Ross, Casey doesn't expect him to be available for Toronto's two remaining preseason games. Pattrick Patterson, Pascal Siakam and Bruno Caboclo will continue to pick up some extended minutes with both Sullinger and Ross on the sidelines.

Jared Sullinger isn't sure of his status for the Raptors' final two preseason games, but hinted that the injury isn't serious.

Sullinger said that his foot was stepped on during the game against the Warriors and added that he tried to play through it, but the soreness persisted. Since then, the Raptors have been cautious and want to make sure he's 100 percent for the opener. As the starting PF in Toronto, Sully has some late-round appeal in standard leagues.

Jared Sullinger (ankle) will not play on Friday.

He's been out for most of this month and has been limited in practice. Sullinger is expected to play minutes at both the four and the five, and he is going to have a green light from three. There should still be better options in 12-team leagues.
Oct 14 - 5:55 PM

Jared Sullinger (ankle) will not play against the Cavs on Thursday.

He's still sidelined by his ankle injury from back on Oct. 1. With Sullinger out, we'll get a longer look at Patrick Patterson and Pascal Siakam. Sullinger is only a last-round flier in deeper leagues.
Oct 13 - 7:09 PM

Jared Sullinger (sore left foot) wont play vs. the Clippers on Wednesday.

Sullinger did go through shootaround and the injury isn't considered serious. We're likely to see Patrick Patterson earn another start at PF in his absence.
Oct 5 - 9:11 PM

Jared Sullinger (left foot) will not play on Monday against the Nuggets.

It doesn't sound serious and he looked fine in his 23 minutes on Saturday. Pascal Siakam was the highlight of Saturday, so he should get some heavy run tonight against the big Denver front.
Oct 3 - 7:51 PM

Jared Sullinger posted seven points, 10 rebounds, one steal, one block and three turnovers in 23 minutes on Saturday.

Not bad. Sullinger attempted three shots from beyond the arc and the Raptors will still give him a chance from deep. He only had two corner 3-pointer attempts last year, so getting more of those and fewer above-the-break attempts could help his percentage. He's only a late-round flier for now.
Oct 1 - 10:17 PM

Raptors coach Dwane Casey said that the starting PF role is Jared Sullinger's job to lose.

Casey wants to see how Sullinger meshes with Jonas Valanciunas defensively before committing to this linuep, but the good news is that he's also expected to spend some time as the backup five. Casey also said that Sullinger has the green light from 3-point range, but fantasy owners shouldn't get too excited because he's just a career 27.6 percent shooter from deep. He's shaping up to be a decent flier in the later rounds, but his injury history is worrying.
Sep 26 - 11:21 AM

Dwane Casey told Jared Sullinger that, "there's a good chance he will start at the four and bounce back at the five."

With the Raptors losing Bismack Biyombo via free agency, it sounds like Casey expects to use Sullinger as both his starting power forward and backup center. Sullinger is going into yet another contract season, and he should be able to improve his fantasy value this year playing in Toronto's less crowded frontcourt, as he has a realistic shot at earning close to 30 minutes a night. He'll be one of the higher upside guys to take towards the later rounds on draft day.
Jul 26 - 3:15 PM

Dwane Casey said that he's expecting to go into training camp with Jared Sullinger as the team's starting power forward, "Unless [Sullinger] comes out and stinks up the place."

While Sullinger is expected to start, backup Patrick Patterson is expected to receive the bulk of the power forward minutes for Toronto, so the starter designation for Sullinger isn't necessarily a boost to his fantasy value. Sullinger is hoping to boost his value in another contract season, but after compiling averages of just 10.3 points, 8.3 boards and 2.3 assists on 43.5 percent shooting last season, Sully won't be worth much more than a late-round flier in standard leagues.
