Thaddeus Young News
Toronto Raptors forward/center Thaddeus Young (illness) is considered doubtful for Tuesday's meeting with Orlando. The veteran has missed the past two games with an illness and still isn't feeling 100 percent. In his 17th year in the league, Young has mostly taken up a mentorship role on the Raptors team, appearing in only three games and logging just a handful of minutes. His absence doesn't impact fantasy basketball in any way.
Toronto Raptors forward Thaddeus Young (knee) is listed as questionable on Thursday due to a left knee sprain. The former lottery pick has seen his minutes fluctuate a lot this season and has taken on a lesser role with Jakob Poeltl entering the mix. Head coach Nick Nurse did say earlier this week that he expected Young to play on Thursday, so managers that might need him should just check back for updates leading up to tipoff. It's not recommended to start Young in any fantasy format right now though.
The Toronto Raptors have decided to start Thaddeus Young Wednesday against the Sacramento Kings. The Raptors seem to have felt Domantas Sabonis would be too much for rookie center Christian Koloko and moved him to the second unit. In eight starts this year, Young has produced 9.9 points, 6.3 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.8 steals in 27.4 minutes per game. With OG Anunoby (hip) out for at least the next week, Young could be a valuable streaming option.
Toronto Raptors forward Thaddeus Young will move into the starting five for Saturday's game against the Indiana Pacers. Head coach Nick Nurse has decided to shake up his lineup with rookie Christian Koloko struggling right now. Young has proven to be fairly productive when he does play. The Raptors could also use Young's boost in offense with Fred VanVleet (illness) on the sideline. Fantasy managers who are looking for a streaming option on Saturday should take a look at Young. He should get a fairly decent amount of playing time.
