Delon Wright tied his season-high with six assists on Sunday, adding 10 points on 4-of-8 shooting, four rebounds and two steals.
The fourth-year guard also hit a pair of 3-pointers without any turnovers in 25 minutes. He had a few eye-opening moves offensively, and Toronto's bench came up big for this win vs. Indiana -- all told there were eight Raptors in double-figures. Minutes were spread around in a back-to-back tonight, and Kawhi Leonard was resting, so there's no lasting implication here for fantasy. Jan 6 - 10:28 PM

Delon Wright contributed eight points, two assists, one rebound and one 3-pointer in 15 minutes on Sunday.

Raptors coach Nick Nurse said that in the absence of Kyle Lowry (back), both Wright and Fred VanVleet "have gone up a level." Unfortunately, even 'next-level' Wright hasn't been helping fantasy owners in December with averages of 6.0 points on 38.2% shooting, 3.4 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.1 steals, 0.4 triples and 0.2 blocks.

Delon Wright went back to his normal role off the bench on Saturday against the 76ers, playing just 17 minutes and scoring four points in a losing effort.

Kyle Lowry (back, thigh) and Danny Green (knee) were both back in the lineup, which meant Wright was related to his usual bench role. As long as the Raptors are healthy, he doesn't have enough value to warrant ownership in most leagues.

Delon Wright made a start at shooting guard on Friday against the Cavs, scoring eight points with four rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one block in 33 minutes.

Danny Green (knee) did not play today and he's likely out tomorrow. Plus, Kawhi Leonard (rest) is not going to play, so Wright could get some more usage to go with the minutes. He's not a bad pickup for owners looking to get a short-term boost or as a streaming play in Philly on Saturday.

Fred VanVleet, Delon Wright, Kawhi Leonard, OG Anunoby and Pascal Siakam will start against the Cavs on Friday.

The Raptors will go ahead and put their best five players on the floor, which could mean they don't want to extend Norm Powell too much. VanVleet should get some heavy run with Lorenzo Brown behind him, and perhaps Wright is looking a 30-plus minutes, as well. Both FVV and Wright look like strong DFS plays tonight.

Delon Wright will move to the bench against the Pacers on Wednesday.

He played 38 minutes on Sunday with both Fred VanVleet and Kyle Lowry out, but he played just 17 minutes last week against the Blazers when only Lowry was out. That suggests Wright should be around 20 minutes for the shorthanded Raptors.
Wed, Dec 19, 2018 06:09:00 PM

Delon Wright scored a season-high 15 points as a fill-in starter on Sunday, making 6-of-12 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs with eight rebounds, four assists and one steal in 38 minutes.

Kyle Lowry (bruised left thigh) and Fred VanVleet (back) were both sidelined tonight, so Wright got the start and made the most of his opportunity. The Raptors' next game is at home on Wednesday but Wright isn't a great hold since Lowry and VanVleet are both day-to-day. Just keep this performance in mind if those guys do miss more games.

Delon Wright will start at point guard vs. the Nuggets on Sunday.

Kyle Lowry (thigh), Fred VanVleet (back) and Pascal Siakam (back) are all unavailable, so it will be Wright and C.J. Miles joining the starting unit. Wright is the more attractive streaming play, but weigh your options carefully -- he may only be worthwhile for one game with Lowry and VanVleet day-to-day.
Sun, Dec 16, 2018 06:44:00 PM

Delon Wright contributed six points on 3-of-6 shooting, five rebounds, three assists and one steal in 21 minutes on Wednesday.

Wright had a breakthrough performance on Tuesday. "He’s been looking pretty good lately," coach Nick Nurse said prior to Toronto's road trip. "He’s got a lot of finishes, he’s got more than the average guy. This side, that side, left hand, right hand, really high off the board, tons of spin." The Raptors would love to see Wright attacking aggressively with the second unit, but he's just a borderline fantasy option while Kyle Lowry, Danny Green and Fred VanVleet are all healthy.

Delon Wright received three stitches for a cut over his eye, but returned for the second half on Tuesday, racking up 12 points, four rebounds, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers on 5-of-10 shooting in 21 minutes.

This game was over early, as the Raptors destroyed the Clippers, and Wright played well in his 21 minutes. He won't get that kind of run on most night, nor will he be this hot, so he's just worth keeping an eye on in a case this was the start of a hot streak for him. But we doubt that's the case.
Wed, Dec 12, 2018 01:10:00 AM

Delon Wright scored two points with one rebound, one assist, two steals and no turnovers in 20 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday.

He somewhat surprisingly didn't get a noteworthy bump in playing time with Kyle Lowry out. Wright continues to be more of a wing in coach Nick Nurse's rotation, so he'll need a lot to happen to get minutes in the upper 20s.
Sat, Dec 1, 2018 10:47:00 PM

Delon Wright scored eight points with two assists and two 3-pointers against the Warriors on Thursday.

Pascal Siakam and Danny Green have been excellent lately, which has led to OG Anunoby playing some wing minutes to take time away from Delon. He's failed to hit 20 minutes in any of his last four games, so not even his solid per-minute production in standard leagues can offset the lack of volume. He's not worth owning in most leagues while the Raptors are healthy.
Thu, Nov 29, 2018 11:20:00 PM

Delon Wright scored seven points with two rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes against the Celtics on Friday.

He did close this game out in regulation and he is earning more minutes. The Raptors lost more depth with OG Anunoby (wrist) getting hurt and Fred VanVleet is cold as ice, so maybe Wright starts to get it going with ample opportunity in front of him. He's worth a proactive add in competitive leagues.
Fri, Nov 16, 2018 10:35:00 PM

Delon Wright did not score in 14 minutes with two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 14 minutes against the Pistons on Wednesday.

There could be some minutes opening up for Wright with Danny Green (back) getting hurt today. Wright hasn't hit his stride yet and suffering an injury to start the year may have hurt his adjustment period to coach Nick Nurse's style. Still, he would be a candidate to start or be a bigger factor in the second unit, so he's worth a look as a speculative add in competitive leagues.
Wed, Nov 14, 2018 10:10:00 PM

Delon Wright scored ten points with two rebounds, one steal and two 3-pointers in 16 minutes in Monday's 126-110 loss to New Orleans.

Wright has now reached double figures in consecutive game for the first time this season, as he scored 12 in the Raptors' Nov. 10 blowout of the Knicks. Against the Pelicans he shot 3-of-5 from the field and 2-of-3 from three, combining with Fred VanVleet to provide a scoring boost off the bench. With Norman Powell (shoulder) currently out of the lineup, there should be more opportunities for Wright to have an impact off the bench.
