Top Precious Achiuwa News

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Delivers well-rounded line in win

    Achiuwa finished Tuesday's 106-92 win over the Heat with 12 points (5-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt), nine rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 24 minutes.

    Achiuwa received just six minutes in Sunday's win over the Wizards after missing the previous two games with a hamstring injury, but he saw a big uptick in playing time Tuesday while Toronto was without two key cogs on the second unit in Gary Trent (elbow) and Will Barton (ankle). He was further helped by starting center Jakob Poeltl picking up four fouls in just 23 minutes, and while Achiuwa did well to capitalize during his time on the court, it's tough to rely on him to replicate this performance with any sort of regularity. Before missing time with the hamstring issue, Achiuwa had averaged just 3.9 points, 3.4 rebounds, 0.9 assists, 0.3 steals and 0.3 blocks in 13.5 minutes over his other eight appearances in March.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Cleared for action Sunday

    Achiuwa (hamstring) is available for Sunday's game against the Wizards, Aaron Rose of SI.com reports.

    Achiuwa has missed back-to-back games and was initially listed as questionable, but he's since been cleared and will suit up versus Washington. It's unclear how many minutes he'll see in his return to action, but he figures to see at least a few stints behind Jakob Poeltl and Christian Koloko.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Questionable vs. Wizards

    Achiuwa (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's action against the Wizards, Josh Lewenberg of TSN.ca reports.

    A hamstring injury has kept Achiuwa out for two consecutive games, leading to more run for Chris Boucher and Christian Koloko. That pair will presumably see bigger roles again if Achiuwa remains shelved.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Out again

    Achiuwa (hamstring) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Pistons, Eric Koreen of The Athletic reports.

    Achiuwa will miss back-to-back games due to right hamstring soreness. Gary Trent (elbow) and Scottie Barnes (wrist) also remain out, so Will Barton will draw another start and Chris Boucher figures to see increased usage again.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Questionable against Detroit

    Achiuwa (hamstring) didn't participate in practice Thursday and is questionable for Friday's game versus the Pistons, Eric Koreen of The Athletic reports.

    Achiuwa is in danger of missing his second straight game due to right hamstring soreness. Chris Boucher and Christian Koloko are candidates to see extended minutes if Achiuwa doesn't suit up Friday.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Out Wednesday

    Achiuwa (hamstring) will not play Wednesday versus the Pacers, Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun reports.

    With both Achiuwa and Scottie Barnes watching from the sidelines Wednesday, Chris Boucher will have the opportunity for some extended minutes, and he could be worth a dice roll if you need some blocks. Achiuwa's next opportunity to play will come Friday against Detroit.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Questionable Wednesday

    Achiuwa is questionable for Wednesday's game against Indiana due to right hamstring tightness.

    Achiuwa has seen inconsistent playing time in recent matchups, but he played 20 minutes during Sunday's loss to Milwaukee, his highest mark since Feb. 25. However, he was a late addition to Wednesday's injury report due to his hamstring issue. Even if he sits against the Pacers, his absence likely wouldn't impact Toronto's frontcourt rotation much.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Logs 20 minutes Sunday

    Achiuwa recorded five points (2-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, three assists and one block in 20 minutes during Sunday's 118-111 loss to Milwaukee.

    Achiuwa played a few extra minutes in the loss, thanks primarily to the fact Scottie Barnes left with a wrist injury after just 13 minutes. Since the arrival of Jakob Poeltl, Achiuwa has faded into obscurity, sitting well outside the top 350 in fantasy basketball over the past month. While the injury to Barnes could afford Achiuwa somewhat of a reprieve, it is unlikely he becomes anything more than an add in deeper formats.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Logs 14 minutes in win

    Achiuwa notched four points (0-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds and one assist across 14 minutes during Tuesday's 125-110 victory over the Nuggets.

    Achiuwa's fall from grace continued Tuesday, playing fewer than 15 minutes for a third straight game. After a period of 12-team relevance, Achiuwa has quickly declined to be nothing more than a role player for the Raptors, coinciding with the arrival of Jakob Poeltl. The Raptors have made it clear they are pushing for the playoffs, meaning Achiuwa is unlikely to move up in the rotation, barring an injury to one of the starters.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Downward trend continues

    Achiuwa finished Saturday's 116-109 overtime victory over Washington with four points (2-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds and one steal over 19 minutes.

    Achiuwa's days of being a fantasy-relevant player are now well and truly behind him, with his performance Saturday doing nothing to dispel those thoughts. The acquisition of Jakob Poeltl was the nail in the coffin, especially given the Raptors appear as though they are going to push for wins ROS. If for some reason you are still hanging onto Achiuwa, rest assured you can now safely send him back to the waiver wire.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Quiet double-double Tuesday

    Achiuwa accumulated 11 points (4-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 13 rebounds and one block in 34 minutes during Tuesday's 123-113 victory over Orlando.

    Achiuwa remained in the starting lineup Tuesday, but his time on the top unit could come to an end as soon as the Raptors get one of Gary Trent (calf) or OG Anunoby (wrist) back after the All-Star break. While Achiuwa has enjoyed a productive last couple of weeks, the arrival of Jakob Poeltl at the trade deadline basically ended any long-term hopes fantasy managers had about Achiuwa's viability in 12-team leagues for the duration of the season. He can be held for now, but once Toronto is back to full strength, Achiuwa's fantasy value will likely drop precipitously.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Will play Tuesday

    Achiuwa (ankle) will play Tuesday against the Magic, Blake Murphy of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Achiuwa was initially listed as questionable due to a right ankle sprain, but he's been cleared for action and will presumably draw a ninth straight start. Since being inserted into the starting lineup, he's averaging 13.4 points, 8.5 rebounds and 1.3 steals in 30.5 minutes per game.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Questionable Tuesday

    Achiuwa is questionable for Tuesday's game against Orlando due to a right ankle sprain, Josh Lewenberg of TSN.ca reports.

    Achiuwa has started the last eight games, averaging 13.4 points, 8.5 rebounds and 1.3 steals in 30.5 minutes per game during that time. However, he was unable to practice Monday due to his ankle issue, and it's unclear whether he'll be available for the Raptors' only game this week. Jakob Poeltl would likely see an even larger role if Achiuwa is sidelined.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Scores 16 in starting lineup

    Achiuwa finished with 16 points (7-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt), four rebounds and four assists over 31 minutes during Friday's 122-116 loss to the Jazz.

    Achiuwa kept his spot with the starters despite the arrival of Jakob Poeltl, but coach Nick Nurse said he hasn't made up his mind about the position yet. With Poeltl's role likely to grow and Chris Boucher playing well off the bench, this logjam isn't ideal for any of their fantasy managers. OG Anunoby's (wrist) eventual return will also add a wrinkle to the starting lineup decisions.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Starting run may be over

    Achiuwa racked up 10 points (4-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 28 minutes during Wednesday's 112-98 win over San Antonio.

    Starting his sixth straight game, Achiuwa turned in another solid performance, but his run as a fantasy asset may be coming to an end. The 23-year-old has scored in double digits in 11 of the last 12 games, averaging 13.9 points, 8.5 boards, 1.2 steals and 0.9 blocks over that stretch in 30.3 minutes a contest, but the addition of Jakob Poeltl after Wednesday's win figures to cut into Achiuwa's workload significantly, and likely bump him back to the bench for the remainder of the season.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Another double-double

    Achiuwa registered 11 points (5-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 12 rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal across 34 minutes during Monday's 114-106 loss to the Suns.

    With OG Anunoby (wrist) out, Achiuwa remained in the starting lineup Monday and posted his third straight double-double and fifth over his last six appearances (four starts). During that stretch, the third-year big man is averaging 17.2 points, 10.5 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 1.2 assists in 33.8 minutes per game. Anunoby is expected to miss at least a week, so Achiuwa should remain in the starting lineup and have plenty of opportunities to maintain his recent string of success.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Posts big game in blowout

    Achiuwa racked up 27 points (11-16 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 13 rebounds, two steals and one block across 33 minutes during Saturday's 123-105 win over the Trail Blazers.

    For the fifth game in a row, Achiuwa saw elevated minutes and picked up his third start over that stretch, this time stepping up to the top unit in place of OG Anunoby (wrist). The frontcourt tandem of Achiuwa and Pascal Siakam (24 points, four assists) proved lethal against the Trail Blazers, and Achiuwa's recent run of production should make him head coach Nick Nurse's preferred big man off the bench over Chris Boucher even if Anunoby is back in action for Monday's game in Phoenix. Achiuwa has recorded four double-doubles over his last five outings and is averaging 18.4 points, 10.2 rebounds, 1.4 steals, 1.2 assists and 0.6 blocks while shooting 62.7 percent from the field and 78.9 percent from the charity stripe during that stretch.
