DeMar DeRozan    G/F  Raptors

 

 

DeMar DeRozan scored 33 points during an 87-76 Game 4 victory over the Bucks on Saturday, adding nine rebounds, five assists, four steals and four turnovers in 40 minutes. It was vintage DeRozan with nine makes at the line while going to work in isolation, being assisted just twice to get to his 33 points today. DeRozan didn't have as much defensive responsibility and perhaps the extra space on offense with the small-ball lineup helped him. Maybe, just maybe DeRozan and the Raptors can stay hot in Game 5 on Monday.

Kyle Lowry    G  Raptors

 

 

Kyle Lowry scored 18 points with four rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in a Game 4 win against the Bucks on Saturday. He was a ghost in the first half with only four points and one assist in his 21.2 minutes before half, but Lowry busted out in the third for eight points on a 133.3 effective field goal percentage to help the Raptors pull away. Lowry still hasn't really exploded like he was for basically the first three months of the year, so maybe there's a rust factor here. He'll have the home folks behind him for Game 5 on Monday.

Norman Powell    G  Raptors

 

 

Norman Powell started in Game 4 against the Bucks on Saturday, scoring 12 points with four rebounds, four assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes. Norm is freed. He was basically out of the rotation in the first two games and was thrust into added minutes during Thursday's blowout loss. Powell likely just started as an offensive spark and to allow the Raptors to go with several small-ball lineups, but he held his own on defense against guys like Khris Middleton. There's little doubt that Norm will get another start on Monday, so he'll be an obvious cheap DFS option.

Serge Ibaka    F/C  Raptors

 

 

Serge Ibaka started at center against the Bucks during a Game 4 win on Saturday, making 4-of-16 from the field for 10 points with eight rebounds, one assist, two steals, three blocks and one turnover in 26 minutes. His power forward minutes went completely away in this game with no minutes next to Jonas Valanciunas. Ibaka only played one minute next to Patrick Patterson, so he was out there with a lot of space on the offensive end. That led to a lot of jumpers, but he couldn't get them to fall. While this game wasn't eye-popping on the stat sheet, the new rotation is a favorable one for Ibaka going forward.

P.J. Tucker    G/F  Raptors

 

 

P.J. Tucker did not score in 28 minutes off the bench against the Bucks on Saturday, adding one rebound and three fouls. While he did come off the bench, Tucker was an extension of the first unit with 25 of his minutes coming next to Kyle Lowry and 20 next to DeMar DeRozan. Tucker's energy on defense has been one of the constants in this series for the Raptors, so perhaps he's earned more playing time -- a start? While he won't score much, keep an eye on him as a DFS punt for his output in the hustle stats.

Delon Wright    G  Raptors

 

 

Delon Wright didn't attempt any shots in 11 minutes against the Bucks on Saturday, adding three rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one turnover. The opportunity is there for Wright with Cory Joseph really struggling and the Raptors going with more small-ball fours. Wright is just not being aggressive as a scorer, so it'll be tough to use him in fantasy until he shows some confidence. Maybe that happens on Monday.

Apr 22 - 6:05 PM

Cory Joseph    G  Raptors

 

 

Cory Joseph played just eight minutes with three missed attempts from the field and two turnovers against the Bucks on Saturday. Yeah, five ended possessions and no other stats isn't a great showing. He has been pretty bad in his 69 minutes during this series and eight minutes was probably too much today. In fact, his -22.3 net rating in that time is dead last while Norman Powell and Delon Wright are above the team average. Basically, Joseph's minutes should be going to Norm and Delon.
