Jared Sullinger (foot) will make his season debut and play limited minutes against the 76ers on Wednesday.
Wow. This comes as a surprise after Sullinger was cleared for practice on Jan. 13. He's coming off a foot surgery and chances are his conditioning isn't 100 percent yet. Sullinger will likely have a minutes limit for the foreseeable future, so he's only worth a pickup in deeper leagues right now. His upside isn't the greatest. Jan 18 - 6:09 PM

Jared Sullinger (foot) said he won't set a return date despite being cleared for practice.

"My main focus is just trying to get my legs back under me," Sullinger said. "I feel like everybody else is in tip-top shape and I’m just lagging. I can’t keep up with [Jakob Poeltl] off the dribble, so, I got a lot of work to do." He added that he has "no lungs" right now, so it's going to take him a while to get into shape. Sully is going to be limited right out of the gate, so he's more of a stash in deeper leagues for now. He will eventually be the starting power forward.

Jared Sullinger (foot) has been cleared for practice.

This is a huge step in his recovery. Sullinger is starting to get shots up and now it looks like he can take on more contact. The Raptors have essentially jettisoned Pascal Siakam in the rotation, so the starting spot is Sullinger's to lose once he can play in games. That said, there won't be much usage available for him, he doesn't block shots and his minutes will be managed for a long time, so he's only a pickup in deep leagues.

Jared Sullinger (foot) was getting shots up before Thursday's game against the Jazz.

He was even getting some lift on the video of him taking jumpers -- not much. Sullinger is starting to come along and could wind up playing later this month. It'll likely take him some time to get into game shape, so maybe the All-Star break is a fair target.
Jan 5 - 6:41 PM

Jared Sullinger (foot) is no longer in a walking boot.

He was spotted shooting flat footed during practices and shootarounds this week, but there's no specific timetable for his return. "If we can all put it together going into the playoffs and be playing like we are now and then add Jared and still be going uphill I think we have a great chance to really do something special," Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. Sully isn't worth stashing yet and it's going to be interesting to see how many minutes he can carve out in Toronto with Paskal Siakam and Patrick Patterson playing well.

Coach Dwane Casey said Jared Sullinger (foot) is still about a month away from a return.

He was still in a walking boot last week, so he's not close to a return. The Raptors haven't really missed Sullinger too much with Patrick Patterson playing well in the second unit. In fact, Patterson in and Pascal Siakam out with the other four starters has a 130.0 offensive rating, which ranks tops among lineups with 100 minutes this season. There's no need to stash Sully.

Jared Sullinger (foot) is still in a walking boot.

He was targeting a January return, but this isn't a great sign. On the bright side, coach Dwane Casey is looking forward to getting Sully back."He gives us the same thing [Al] Horford gives the Celtics," Casey said. OK then. Expect Pascal Siakam to get plenty of starts while Pat Patterson also benefits.

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.

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.

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.
