Khem Birch News
Toronto Raptors forward Khem Birch (nose) has been upgraded to available for Thursday's game against the Chicago Bulls. He has not appeared in a game since January 14 and underwent nose surgery. His return will impact the fantasy value of Chris Boucher, and Precious Achiuwa. It's uncertain how big of a role Birch will have in the rotation right now. Fantasy managers should continue to hold Boucher as this is a wait-and-see type of situation.
Toronto Raptors forward Khem Birch (nose) is not available for Saturday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks. Birch suffered a nose fracture during Friday's contest. His timetable is unknown, but the organization reportedly has taken care of the issue. In the meantime, Chris Boucher should be asked to pick up the slack. He has looked fantastic lately and is a must-have option right now while he's on fire. Fantasy managers should check the waiver wire and see if Boucher is available. He should play a bigger role with Birch likely sidelined multiple games.
Toronto Raptors center Khem Birch (knee) is set to return to the court on Friday against the Clippers after missing over a month of action. The 29-year-old hasn't featured since Nov. 21. Precious Achiuwa is also available again after clearing health and safety protocols, and the duo will give Toronto some much-needed frontcourt help. With that said, Chris Boucher has put in impressive performances lately and it won't easy for Birch and Achiuwa to eat into his minutes. Justin Champagnie (health and safety protocols) is also back in the mix.
Toronto Raptors centers Precious Achiuwaand Khem Birchhave been ruled out for Tuesday's contest against Philadelphia. The duo's absence leaves the Raptors thin in the frontcourt vs. Joel Embiid, a daunting proposition when considering the four-time All-Star's 25.5 points-per-game average this season. Whereas Achiuwa remains in the league's COVID-19 health and safety protocols, a return may not be far off for Birch, who entered the day questionable to play for the first time since Nov. 21. Pascal Siakam and Chris Boucher stand to see the vast majority of run at the five, roles they figure to reprise as long as Achiuwa and Birch remain out of the mix.
