Yuta Watanabe News
Toronto Raptors small/power forwards OG Anunoby (calf) and Yuta Watanabe (ankle) have been deemed unavailable to play in Sunday's contest versus the Timberwolves, continuing their respective absences. Despite the fact that Anunoby is getting closer to a return, he will miss his 10th straight game Sunday, paving the way for Norman Powell to remain among the starting five and continue seeing a significant role in the offense. Watanabe's absence from the second unit allows DeAndre' Bembry to continue seeing a handful of additional minutes and looks, giving him DFS punt play potential. The next chance that Anunoby and Watanabe have to suit up comes Tuesday against Milwaukee.
Toronto Raptors small/power forward Yuta Watanabe (ankle) has been deemed doubtful to take the floor for Sunday's contest against the Timberwolves due to a sprained left ankle. Watanabe has been unable to play since sustaining the injury in practice, which has opened the door for DeAndre' Bembry to see a handful of additional minutes off the bench. While none of the Raptors' second unit wings are worth season-long deliberation at this stage, Watanabe has shown scoring upside when given enough minutes and has provided valuable frontcourt depth. His likely next best chance to suit up comes Tuesday versus Milwaukee.
Toronto Raptors small/power forwards OG Anunoby (calf) and Yuta Watanabe (ankle) have both been ruled out for Thursday's contest versus the Celtics. Anunoby appears to be progressing toward a return in the near future, as he has joined the team on its road trip, but Toronto will remain thin on the wing for at least one more contest. DeAndre' Bembry has seen a significant increase in minutes off the bench without Anunoby available, as Norman Powell has continued to thrive among the starting five, morphing into a must-roster season-long asset, at least on a short-term basis. The next chance that the Raptors will get to return to full health comes Sunday against Minnesota.
Toronto Raptors forward Yuta Watanabe (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Thursday's game against the Boston Celtics. He hasn't been a huge part of the rotation, but has earned minutes recently with the Raptors being shorthanded. OG Anunoby (calf) is questionable for this game and is on the verge of returning. Watanabe is expected to lose minutes once Anunoby returns, so fantasy managers can go ahead and leave him on the waiver wire.
