Gary Trent Jr. News
Toronto Raptors shooting guard Gary Trent Jr. made the most of his last-minute addition into the starting lineup in Friday's 115-83 victory against the Celtics. The 22-year-old replaced point guard Goran Dragic and fit very nicely with the starters, as Trent Jr. finished with 20 points, four steals, three rebounds, two made three-pointers and one assist on 7-for-13 shooting from the field. Trent Jr. is worth adding in any leagues where he is available as he will provide quality point totals and three-pointers made while playing alongside point guard Fred VanVleet in the starting lineup.
Toronto Raptors shooting guard Gary Trent Jr. is on track to play in Thursday's preseason game vs. the 76ers after a sore quad forced him to miss the opener. Trent, 22, is one of the more exciting upside fantasy cogs heading into the 2021-22 year amidst a new-look Raptors group that seeks scoring punch. While Trent did shoot just 39.5 percent over his final 17 games with Toronto last year, his scoring average rose to 16.2 PPG. Knocking down an average of 2.8 triples per contest last year in his first taste of starting on a full-time basis, Trent boasts terrific upside in category formats, especially when considering his 1.1 SPG average upon his arrival in Toronto.
Toronto Raptors center Khem Birch and guard Gary Trent Jr. (quadriceps) won't be in the lineup on Monday for the preseason opener against the Philadelphia 76ers. Birch remains away from the team while adhering to the league's health and safety protocols surrounding COVID-19, while Trent has been plagued by lingering soreness in his left quad. Pascal Siakam (shoulder) and Chris Boucher (finger) are also out, so Goran Dragic will slide over to the two spot, with Scottie Barnes and Precious Achiuwa left to handle things underneath the rim.
Toronto Raptors shooting guard Gary Trent Jr. ended a six-game absence with a 25-point effort in Thursday's overtime loss to Washington, shooting 8-for-16 from the field and 5-for-10 from downtown. He completed his night with a perfect 4-for-4 effort at the foul line and had three rebounds, one assist and one steal with one turnover in 36 minutes. The Raptors were missing Kyle Lowry (rest) and OG Anunoby (calf) here, which helped Trent Jr. to make a productive return to the lineup. He is averaging 16.5 points on 42.2 percent shooting from the field for the team ahead of Saturday's meeting with Memphis.
