Raptors' Fred VanVleet: Falls flat in loss
VanVleet produced eight points (3-14 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 38 minutes during Monday's 116-110 loss to the Celtics.
VanVleet was stifled by Boston's strong defense and is shooting just 29.4 percent from the field over his past eight appearances. He's still posting 13.8 points and 5.9 assists during that stretch, but Toronto certainly needs better production out of its starting point guard, especially against top-tier opponents like the Celtics....

Raptors' OG Anunoby: Modest production in loss
Anunoby finished with 13 points (6-14 FG, 1-5 3Pt), five rebounds, one block and three steals over 42 minutes during Monday's 116-110 loss to the Celtics.
After tying his season high with 32 points Saturday, Anunoby's 13 points Monday feels insignificant. Nonetheless, the sixth-year forward has scored in double figures in 23 of 24 appearances this season and is averaging 19.1 points, 5.8 rebounds, 2.3 steals and 2.2 assists in 36.5 minutes....

Raptors' Juancho Hernangomez: Won't play Wednesday
Hernangomez (ankle) won't take the floor Wednesday versus the Lakers, Josh Lewenberg of TSN.ca reports.
Hernangomez will skip his second consecutive game following an ankle issue that surfaced early in his appearance against the Magic on Saturday when he exited after just five minutes of action due to an ankle injury. His next chance to rejoin the action surfaces Friday in the first of two upcoming games versus the Magic in Orlando.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Otto Porter: Out again Wednesday
Porter (toe) remains out for Wednesday's game versus the Lakers, Josh Lewenberg of TSN.ca reports.
Porter hasn't appeared in a contest since Nov. 14 and doesn't have a clear timetable for his return to action at this juncture. His next opportunity to do so arrives Friday against the Magic, though it's far from an expected outcome.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Ron Harper: Notches 20 versus Swarm
Harper compiled 20 points (6-13 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block over 33 minutes Monday versus the Swarm.
On a two-way contract, Harper has seen the vast majority of his action with the team's G League affiliate. Harper has crossed the 20-point threshold in five of his nine appearances with 905, averaging 19.8 points, 6.1 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 1.7 blocks and 1.6 steals, proving to be an all-around contributor....

Raptors' Jeff Dowtin: Tallies double-double
Dowtin racked up 18 points (7-13 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 10 assists, five rebounds, a steal and a block over 35 minutes Saturday versus the Skyhawks.
Dowtin continues to display why the Raptors inked him to a two-way contract, contributing in every category during Saturday's contest. Dowtin hasn't played a ton on the NBA level, but he's averaging 21.1 points, 7.3 assists and 3.8 rebounds in his eight appearances with 905.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Scottie Barnes: Reaches 20-point plateau
Barnes provided 21 points (8-14 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 4-6 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal over 41 minutes during Monday's 116-110 loss to the Celtics.
Barnes scored 20 points for the first time since returning from a two-game absence in mid-November, and he seems to be rounding into form after that two-game stint on the sidelines. Barnes has scored over 15 points in each of his last three contests, and he's averaging 14.0 points while shooting 50.9 percent from the field in five games since returning to action.... See More ...

Raptors' Gary Trent: Shines off bench Monday
Trent notched 20 points (7-10 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), one rebound, one assist and two steals in 26 minutes during Monday's 116-110 loss to Boston.
Trent came off the bench for the fifth game in a row and delivered an impressive performance, missing just three of his attempts from the field and clearing the 15-point mark for the third time across his last four outings. He's averaging 18.0 points while shooting 51.7 percent from the field and 43.8 percent from deep in his five appearances off the bench, something that's new for him since he'd been a regular starter for the first five weeks of the campaign.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Pascal Siakam: Strong all-around performance
Siakam notched 29 points (9-20 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 9-13 FT), eight rebounds and seven assists across 39 minutes during Monday's 116-110 loss to the Celtics.
Siakam came quite close to securing what would've been his third double-double over his last five appearances since returning to action. Still, even if he didn't accomplish that feat, the star big man didn't miss a step despite being out for more than three weeks due to a groin injury. He's scored at least 20 points in four games in a row and is averaging 24.0 points, 8.0 rebounds, 6.0 assists and 1.2 steals per game during that five-game streak.... See More ... See Less

Across 12 appearances off the bench, Koloko is averaging 3.4 points and 5.4 rebounds across 13.7 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Gary Trent: Back in starting lineup
Trent will return to the starting five for Monday's game against Boston.
The Raptors experimented with bringing Trent off the bench for the last four games, but they'll revert back to their regular lineup Monday. Trent will reclaim his spot at shooting guard next to Fred VanVleet, while OG Anunoby, Scottie Barnes and Pascal Siakam start up front. Over his last nine contests, Trent is shooting just 26.4 percent from downtown on 5.9 attempts per game.... See More ... See Less

Hernangomez (ankle) is out for Monday's contest against the Celtics, Josh Lewenberg of TSN.ca reports.

Raptors' Juancho Hernangomez: Doubtful for Monday
Hernangomez (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Monday's game against the Celtics.
The Spanish forward suffered a right ankle sprain in Saturday's 121-108 win over the Magic and looks poised to miss at least one game due to the injury. Hernangomez has maintained a small role in the Toronto rotation over the past 11 games, starting three times while averaging 6.0 points, 5.5 rebounds, 0.9 assists, 0.8 three-pointers and 0.8 steals in 21.6 minutes per contest....

Raptors' Otto Porter: Won't play Monday
The Raptors list Porter (toe) as out for Monday's game against the Celtics.
Porter hasn't suited up since Nov. 14 due to a dislocated toe on his left foot. Whenever the veteran forward is cleared to return, he's expected to handle only a small role in head coach Nick Nurse's rotation.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Gary Trent: Bottoms out in Saturday's win
Trent contributed five points (2-10 FG, 1-7 3Pt), one rebound and three assists across 28 minutes during Saturday's 121-108 victory over Orlando.
Coming off a pair of decent performances, Trent fell in a heap Saturday, scoring a season-low five points. It appears as though the coaching staff has made the decision to shift Trent to the bench, allowing the team to run with a more traditional starting lineup. It remains to be seen what kind of long-term impact this will have on Trent's overall value, given the mixed bag thus far. He remains a hold in standard formats, but his minutes are something to keep an eye on moving forward.... See More ... See Less
