Top Jakob Poeltl News

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Remains out against Miami

    Poeltl (finger) won't play in Sunday's game versus the Heat, Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun reports.

    Poeltl will miss his 21st straight game to end the season Sunday after undergoing surgery on his left pinkie finger. The 28-year-old big man will end the 2023-24 campaign averaging 11.1 points, 8.6 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.5 blocks in 26.4 minutes across 50 appearances.

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Still limited at practice

    Poeltl (finger) participated in parts of Monday's practice but was limited to using only his right hand, Raptors reporter Aaron Rose reports.

    While the big man appears to be making progress, the fact that he's still limited at this stage in the season does not bode well for his chances to return at some point in the next week. Either way, the Raptors are well out of playoff contention, so even if Poeltl was fully healthy, it's possible Toronto would hold him out for rest and development purposes.

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Not ready for contact work

    Head coach Darko Rajakovic said Tuesday that Poeltl (hand) has been doing some light on-court work but still hasn't been cleared for contact, Josh Lewenberg of reports.

    According to Lewenberg, Poeltl's on-court work hasn't involved him using his surgically repaired left hand, so he doesn't appear to be particularly close to making a return to game action. The Raptors haven't yet ruled Poeltl out for the season, but with the team sitting at 23-49 and well out of the playoff picture, the team has little incentive to rush him back if he's not 100 percent healed from surgery. Kelly Olynyk should continue serving as the Raptors' starting center for whatever length of time Poeltl is sidelined.

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Undergoes surgery

    The Raptors announced Tuesday that Poeltl is out indefinitely after undergoing surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left pinkie finger, Josh Lewenberg of reports.

    Poeltl suffered the injury during Sunday's win over the Hornets. While no official return timetable has been given, the Raptors will likely be without Poeltl for multiple weeks, if not the remainder of the season. Kelly Olynyk will likely step into a larger role as the Raptors' starting center, while Jontay Porter will likely become a fixture in the rotation as Olynyk's primary backup.

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Seeing hand specialists

    Poeltl (pinky dislocation) is being consulted by hand specialists and there is no update or estimated return as of Tuesday, Josh Lewenberg of reports.

    Poeltl's status is extremely murky for Thursday's game against Phoenix, and a multi-game absence can't be ruled out given the extent to which his finger is currently being evaluated. The severity and specificity of his dislocation are relevant factors for which the team is attempting to gather more intelligence on, leaving Kelly Olynyk as a pillar of the frontcourt in his stead.

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Won't play Tuesday

    Poeltl (finger) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Pelicans, Aaron Rose of reports.

    Poeltl dislocated his left pinky during Sunday's win over the Hornets and will miss at least one additional game. Kelly Olynyk started the second half of Sunday's contest in Poeltl's absence and should see an increased role again Tuesday. Poeltl's next chance to suit up will come Thursday in Phoenix.

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Dislocates finger Sunday

    Poeltl won't return to Sunday's game against the Hornets due to a left pinky dislocation, Aaron Rose of reports. He finished with eight points (4-6 FG), three assists, two rebounds and one block in 15 minutes.

    Poeltl suffered the injury late in the second quarter and will miss the entire second half. Though the Raptors are labeling his injury as a dislocation rather than a fracture, it's possible that the hand issue will cause enough discomfort that Poeltl won't be ready to play when the Raptors return to action Tuesday versus the Pelicans. Kelly Olynyk would likely start at center if Poeltl can't go Tuesday, while two-way player Jontay Porter could re-enter the rotation as a backup center.

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Delivers stellar all-around line

    Poeltl (ankle) tallied 16 points (7-12 FG, 2-3 FT), seven rebounds, six assists, four steals and two blocks across 29 minutes in Wednesday's 136-125 loss to the Mavericks.

    Poeltl's availability for Wednesday's contest looked to be in some doubt after he sprained an ankle in Monday's win over the Pacers and was unable to return, but he received the green light to play after checking out fine following the Raptors' morning shootaround. The veteran center proceeded to deliver one of his better all-around outings of the campaign, complete with a season-high-tying assist and steal totals. Poeltl's outstanding production in sizable minutes should erase most of the concern fantasy managers might have had about him being affected by the ankle injury.

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Good to go Wednesday

    Poeltl (ankle) is available for Wednesday's game versus the Mavericks, Josh Lewenberg of reports.

    Poeltl has been upgraded from questionable to available Wednesday despite dealing with a left ankle sprain he suffered against Indiana. The 28-year-old big man is averaging 13.2 points, 9.8 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.6 blocks in 24.8 minutes across his last five appearances.

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Active at shootaround

    Poeltl, who's listed as questionable due to an ankle injury, was active during Toronto's morning shootaround ahead of Wednesday's game versus Dallas, Aaron Rose of reports.

    Poeltl left Monday's win over Indiana early after spraining his left ankle, but he appears to be trending in the right direction ahead of Wednesday's contest. His official availability will likely be a game-time decision.

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Night ends early with ankle sprain

    Poeltl has been ruled out for the remainder of Monday's game against Indiana with a left ankle sprain, Kayla Grey of TSN reports. He recorded 15 points (7-11 FG, 1-1 FT), 11 rebounds, four assists and one block in 22 minutes before departing.

    Poeltl appeared to injure the ankle in the third quarter and was unable to return after making a visit to the locker room. Considering that the big man previously sat out 11 straight games in January with an injury to the same ankle, it wouldn't be surprising if Poeltl was forced to miss time again. Official word on the extent of Poeltl's injury won't be known until he's sent in for further testing, but if he's out for Wednesday's game against Dallas, the Raptors would likely turn to Kelly Olynyk as their starting center.
