Beat writer Doug Smith is reporting that while Toronto does not want to trade any of their young players, they would be willing to move Jared Sullinger and a 2017 first-round pick.
"League sources insist Toronto will not give away any more young assets such as Delon Wright, Jakob Poeltl, Lucas Nogueira, Pascal Siakam, Norm Powell or Fred VanVleet, but that doesn’t mean a package can’t be put together," writes Smith in the Toronto Star. Smith adds that the Raps could be in the market for "an offensively creative big small forward." Sullinger, who is on a one-year deal worth $5.6 million, has fallen completely out of the Raptors rotation and has no fantasy value at the moment. Feb 17 - 11:30 AM

Jared Sullinger was a healthy DNP-CD vs. the Pistons on Sunday.

Sullinger was called up from the D-League earlier in the day, as the Raptors are doing whatever they can to get him in shape following knee surgery. He's never been known for his dedication to conditioning, so it could take a while. He's waiver wire fodder in all leagues until his role evolves.
Feb 12 - 8:56 PM

Jared Sullinger has been recalled from the D-League.

Bruno Caboclo and Fred VanVleet were also called up prior to Sunday's game vs. the Pistons. Sullinger is out of shape and hasn't played more than nine minutes in the Raptors' past four games.
Feb 12 - 3:18 PM

Jared Sullinger was assigned to the D-League on Friday.

He's likely going to be right back up for Sunday's game against the Pistons. Sullinger doesn't look to be in game shape and isn't in the rotation right now.
Feb 10 - 5:46 PM

Jared Sullinger squared off vs. his former team in Boston on Wednesday, producing 13 points on 5-of-8 shooting, one 3-pointer, six rebounds and one assist in 16 minutes.

Revenge games may not actually benefit fantasy owners, but it sure looked like Sullinger brought extra juice against his former teammates tonight. With two DNPs in his past three games, though, it'll take more than one strong bench performance to recommend him as a fantasy option.
Feb 1 - 10:50 PM

Jared Sullinger returned to the rotation on Sunday, going scoreless with one rebound in seven minutes.

Sullinger was back after a brief stint in the D-League, which was probably designed to improve his conditioning. He has failed to score on combined 0-of-11 shooting in his past three games, and fantasy owners can ignore him until further notice.

Jared Sullinger has been recalled from the D-League.

After picking up a DNP-CD on Friday, the Raptors sent him to the D-League for one game on Saturday in order to keep him in shape. He will be available on Sunday vs. the Magic, but he's looking at a handful of minutes at best in Toronto's crowded frontcourt. Delon Wright and Bruno Caboclo were also recalled.
Jan 29 - 11:55 AM

Jared Sullinger will play for the Raptors 905 in the D-League on Saturday.

Due to having more than three years of experience, Sullinger and the Players Association had to sign off on the move. He was a DNP-CD on Friday and will be eased back into action. He looked a little roster since his return. Leave him on the wire.
Jan 28 - 6:17 PM

Jared Sullinger picked up a DNP-CD on Friday vs. the Bucks.

This wasn't a great matchup for Sully, so Pascal Siakam got the nod off the bench. Regardless, this was very discouraging for Sullinger's outlook and there's no real reason to roster him in most fantasy leagues at this point.
Jan 27 - 11:38 PM

Jared Sullinger finished Wednesday's game with zero points on 0-of-6 shooting, adding just three rebounds and one steal in 15 minutes vs. the Grizzlies.

He went scoreless in 12 minutes as a starter vs. the Spurs on Tuesday and was benched to begin tonight's game, but he was back out to start the second half ahead of Patrick Patterson. His minutes should increase once he's fully up to speed following his foot surgery, but Toronto has too many frontcourt options to anticipate reliable 12-team value. Leave him on the wire for now, whether or not he sticks as a starter.
Jan 25 - 11:48 PM

Jared Sullinger moved into the starting lineup on Tuesday vs. the Spurs, but failed to score in 12 minutes of action.

He missed all four of his shots from the field (including a 3-pointer) and added four rebounds and a steal. The Raptors used four bigs tonight in Jonas Valanciunas, Lucas Noguiera and Patrick Patterson (knee), and they finished the final stretch of the game with J-Val as the only big on the court. Sully isn't going to see enough minutes to warrant ownership in standard leagues.
Jan 24 - 9:36 PM

Jared Sullinger will start vs. San Antonio on Tuesday, bumping Lucas Noguiera to the bench.

Sullinger has played in just three games after missing the first 41 games of the season, and is averaging 6.7 points and 2.7 rebounds over those three games. Despite being named the starter on Tuesday he's still not a very attractive add, especially with Patrick Patterson (knee) returning to the lineup on Tuesday night. Lucas Noguiera is averaging 4.5 points and 4.5 rebounds in 19.0 minutes per game in the 29 contests he has appeared in off the bench this season.
Jan 24 - 6:33 PM

Raptors coach Dwane Casey is encouraging Jared Sullinger to shoot triples.

"If he is wide open, those are good shots for him," Casey said. "He has made those in his career, he just has to make sure he is ready to shoot them conditioning-wise." Sullinger is just 1-of-6 from deep so far this season and is only 27.5 percent from deep in his career, so fantasy owners should keep their expectations in check. Sully has played 14 and 17 minutes in his two appearances, so it will be interesting to see what his workload looks like on Sunday vs. the Suns with the Raptors expected to be at full strength.

Jared Sullinger played 17 minutes against the Hornets on Friday with three points, two rebounds, two blocks and one 3-pointer.

That's an increase from his 14 minutes in his debut on Wednesday. The Raptors look to be viewing him as a backup center for now, but not having Lucas Noguiera is obviously a factor on that. Sullinger will likely have a minutes limit for a long time and his upside isn't great anyway, so he's not the most attractive add.
Jan 20 - 9:37 PM

Jared Sullinger (foot) looked good during his season debut on Wednesday, making 4-of-10 shots to finish with eight points, three rebounds, and no other stats in 14 minutes.

The Raptors are going to be very cautious with Sullinger, as they were with DeMarre Carroll, and he'll be subject to limited minutes and occasional DNP-CDs until further notice. He should play both PF and backup C once he's up to speed, but most owners shouldn't stash him just yet.
