Delon Wright News

Delon Wright    G  Raptors

 

 

Wright (shoulder) is available for Friday's game against the Nets, Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun reports. Wright has missed the team's past 12 games due to a dislocated shoulder. It's unclear how much he'll be thrown back into the rotation in his first game back. But, before being sidelined, he was averaging 20.9 minutes per game and posting 7.6 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 2.4 rebounds.

Delon Wright (shoulder) is available to play against the Nets on Friday. This is awesome news for the Raptors after it looked like Wright was going to need surgery on his shoulder for the second time. The Raptors second-unit defense has been one of the best in league, and Wright will be seeing minutes at two positions. His return means it's probably time to drop Fred VanVleet and Norm Powell while Wright is worth a look in deeper leagues.

Wright (shoulder) has been upgraded to questionable for Friday's game against the Nets, Doug Smith of the Toronto Star reports. This comes as a bit of a surprise, but it still doesn't look like Wright will make his return to the floor Friday night. However, just the fact that the point guard is listed as questionable is surely an encouraging sign for his progress. Wright, who is considered day-to-day, will likely need to put together a full practice or two before he can be made active, but it appears as though he is very close to playing again.

Delon Wright (shoulder) has been upgraded to questionable to play against the Nets on Friday. He is still just day-to-day and earlier today coach Dwane Casey said Wright was getting close to a return. While Wright was out, Norman Powell really couldn't do anything with his added opportunity, so Wright's minutes could cut into Powell's playing time. Fred VanVleet has also cooled off lately, which means Wright should be able to get around 20-24 minutes once he's 100 percent. He's worth a look in deeper leagues.

Coach Dwane Casey said that Delon Wright (shoulder) is progressing towards a return and could be back in the lineup as early as Sunday vs. Sacramento. Wright dislocated his shoulder exactly one month ago and was expected to miss a month. If Wright gets in a good practice on Saturday, it's possible he could play on Sunday. If Wright isn't cleared this weekend, it seems he should be back next week. Once he's back in the mix, Wright will eat into Fred VanVleet minutes backing up Kyle Lowry.

Delon Wright (right shoulder) has progressed to going through 3-on-3 work, although he remains without an official timetable to return. This is a big step, and while the Raptors haven't offered an official timetable, it looks like there's a chance he'll be able to get back to the court around Christmas which lines up with the timetable that Adrian Wojnarowski initially reported. Fred VanVleet will continue to serve as Kyle Lowry's primary backup sans Wright, and he's worth owning as a low-end option in deep leagues.

Wright (shoulder) has begun participating in 3-on-3 work but remains without a timetable for return, Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun reports. Wright has been on the shelf since mid-November with a dislocated right shoulder but appears to be making steady progress. He began shooting last week and is now able to partake in some more high-intensity drills. He'll need to put in a few full practices before he's able to return to the court.

Wright (shoulder) has progressed to shooting, but remains without a concrete timetable for a return, Josh Lewenberg of TSN Sports reports. Wright dislocated his shoulder in mid-November, but was able to avoid surgery and was expected to miss around a month or so of action. It's been roughly two weeks since that original timetable was provided, so it appears Wright is progressing well considering he was able to put up some shots already Monday. The Raptors should provide more updates as Wright ups his participation in practice and his next step will likely be more individual drills, followed by contact. Fred Van Vleet should continue to serve as the backup point guard until Wright is cleared.

Delon Wright (right shoulder) has progressed to some shooting. Coach Dwane Casey said he's "coming along," but the Raptors aren't giving him a timetable. Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported back on Nov. 22 that Wright is expected to miss a month, so maybe we'll see him back on the court around Christmas. In the meantime, Fred VanVleet will continue to back up Kyle Lowry and has really played well.

Delon Wright (right shoulder) is expected to miss a month with his dislocated shoulder, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com. Just a few minutes ago, the Raptors announced Wright is not going to have surgery at this time, so it looks like the plan is for rehab to get him back up to speed in a month. The Raptors won't be in a rush to bring him back based on how this was his second right shoulder injury, but this is still terrific news for the combo guard. For the next month, Fred VanVleet, Pasal Siakam and OG Anunoboy will step up on the perimeter until Norman Powell (hip) gets back.
