Norman Powell News

Norman Powell    G  Raptors

 

 

Normal Powell did not score with one rebound, one steal and two turnovers in 10 minutes against the Suns on Wednesday. So much for stepping up while Delon Wright (shoulder) went down. Powell is ice cold and OG Anunoby continues to play strong defense, so it's just not there for him right now.

Norman Powell played only nine minutes on Sunday, scoring two points on 1-of-3 shooting with one rebound, two turnovers and two personal fouls. Powell's minutes came during one stint alongside Fred VanVleet, C.J. Miles, Pascal Siakam and Jakob Poeltl, after which he was a bystander. His minutes were in the teens for Toronto's past four games, of course, so this isn't exactly a shock. We know what he's capable of when given enough minutes, but Toronto's current rotation has marginalized him for fantasy purposes.

Norman Powell played only 17 minutes off the bench on Wednesday, scoring 10 points (3-of-7 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs) with four rebounds and two 3-pointers. Powell played only 4.2 minutes alongside both Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan tonight, which isn't a great sign. He deserves the benefit of the doubt, however, and coach Dwane Casey has made it clear that he likes Powell with the second unit due to Delon Wright (shoulder) being out. "He’s kind of the star of the show with that second group," Casey said. "With Delon out he’s a natural fit with that group and he’s done a good job."

Dwane Casey indicated that Norman Powell will continue to work with the second unit in Toronto. "I think Norman likes that - He’s kind of the star of the show with that 2nd group. He’s done a good job of adapting and going with both groups," said Casey. "With Delon [Wright] out, he’s a natural fit with that group, and he’s done a good job." Powell has a lot more opportunity to assert himself in the offense while working with the second unit, and through three games as a reserve he's produced averages of 14.7 points, 2.3 triples and 1.7 steals per contest. He's worth a look in most leagues.

Norman Powell    G  Raptors

 

 

Powell totaled 17 points (7-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt), three steals, two rebounds and one assist in 30 minutes during Saturday's 112-78 victory over Atlanta. Powell came off the bench again, but looked excellent in the win. He has now scored in double-figures for three consecutive games since returning from a hip concern. He has also recorded at least one steal in all three games. The team may decide to bring him back into the starting lineup at some stage, however, he has looked comfortable coming off the bench, and may hold more value in that role.

Norman Powell stayed hot during a 112-78 win over the Hawks on Saturday, scoring 17 points with two rebounds, one assist, three steals and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes. This was not a garbage-time special with most of his damage coming in the first half. Powell has looked fantastic off the bench and is coming off a 16-point Friday. Plus, Powell barely played in the fourth quarter earlier this year, but now he should play more late because Delon Wright (shoulder) is out for at least a month. This is the Powell we were expecting a month ago, so give him a look to see if he can keep it going. He was outstanding in the postseason.

Norman Powell scored 16 points in a 107-104 loss to the Pacers on Friday, adding three rebounds, two assists, a steal, a block, a 3-pointer, and three turnovers in 27 minutes. Powell was 7-of-14 from the field, but the most impressive stat is that he was plus-16 in a three-point loss. We like Powell's chances of winning the starting SF gig back from rookie OG Anunoby, but with C.J. Miles lurking, Powell's fantasy upside isn't what some other potential waiver wire targets have to offer.

Norman Powell (hip) scored 11 points with four rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers in 23 minutes in his return to the lineup on Wednesday. Powell had missed four straight games due to the hip ailment, but looked rust-free in this one. He came out firing, knocking down three treys within his first five minutes on the floor. He slowed down after that, but certainly exceeded expectations on the night. OG Anunoby started at small forward but finished with just three points, one board and one assist in 16 minutes. Norm has a good shot at winning back the starting SF gig, but the presence of C.J. Miles and Anunoby means it will likely remain an unattractive timeshare.

Powell will come off the bench Wednesday against the Knicks. The Raptors confirmed earlier Wednesday that Powell would return from a four-game absence, and Toronto has now clarified that he'll be utilized in a reserve role. That means rookie OG Anunoby will make another start at small forward, and he'll be joined in the starting five by Jonas Valanciunas, Serge Ibaka, DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry.
