  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Another double-double

    Achiuwa registered 11 points (5-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 12 rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal across 34 minutes during Monday's 114-106 loss to the Suns.

    With OG Anunoby (wrist) out, Achiuwa remained in the starting lineup Monday and posted his third straight double-double and fifth over his last six appearances (four starts). During that stretch, the third-year big man is averaging 17.2 points, 10.5 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 1.2 assists in 33.8 minutes per game. Anunoby is expected to miss at least a week, so Achiuwa should remain in the starting lineup and have plenty of opportunities to maintain his recent string of success.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Posts big game in blowout

    Achiuwa racked up 27 points (11-16 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 13 rebounds, two steals and one block across 33 minutes during Saturday's 123-105 win over the Trail Blazers.

    For the fifth game in a row, Achiuwa saw elevated minutes and picked up his third start over that stretch, this time stepping up to the top unit in place of OG Anunoby (wrist). The frontcourt tandem of Achiuwa and Pascal Siakam (24 points, four assists) proved lethal against the Trail Blazers, and Achiuwa's recent run of production should make him head coach Nick Nurse's preferred big man off the bench over Chris Boucher even if Anunoby is back in action for Monday's game in Phoenix. Achiuwa has recorded four double-doubles over his last five outings and is averaging 18.4 points, 10.2 rebounds, 1.4 steals, 1.2 assists and 0.6 blocks while shooting 62.7 percent from the field and 78.9 percent from the charity stripe during that stretch.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Starting for injured Anunoby

    Achiuwa will start Saturday's matchup at Portland, Eric Koreen of The Athletic reports.

    Achiuwa gets the nod with OG Anunoby (wrist) sidelined. In his previous two starts this season, he's averaged 14.5 points, 11.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.0 block in 36.0 minutes.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Strong double-double in loss

    Achiuwa recorded 17 points (8-12 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-3 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists and one steal across 36 minutes during Friday's 129-117 loss to the Warriors.

    Achiuwa played a whopping 36 minutes off the bench Friday, likely as a result of an injury to OG Anunoby (wrist). Anunoby took a hard fall, landing awkwardly on his left wrist. While X-rays were negative, there is certainly a chance he will miss time. If that is the case, Achiuwa appears in the box seat to step up in the rotation. Even with Anunoby healthy, Achiuwa has been knocking on the door of 12-team leagues over the past two weeks, putting up top-150 value over that time. He is limited in terms of what he can bring to the table, but for anyone in need of points and rebounds, he is at least worth a look.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Returns to bench

    Achiuwa will shift to the second unit for Wednesday's game against Sacramento, Blake Murphy of reports.

    Achiuwa has enjoyed a two-game stint with the starters, notching a double-double in each contest. However, with OG Anunoby (ankle) back in action, Achiuwa will return to his typical bench role. In 22 games off the bench, Achiuwa has averaged 8.3 points and 5.3 rebounds over 18.7 minutes.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Notches second double-double

    Achiuwa chipped in 12 points (2-4 FG, 8-10 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist and two steals over 35 minutes during Sunday's 125-116 win over New York.

    Achiuwa did the majority of his scoring from the charity stripe, as he attempted a season-high 10 free throws in the victory. He also managed to turn in his second straight double-double in consecutive starts. Achiuwa could be in line for another start Wednesday in Sacramento if OG Anunoby (ankle) is forced to miss another game.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Remains in starting lineup

    Achiuwa will start at center in Sunday's game against the Knicks, Josh Lewenberg of reports.

    Achiuwa drew his start of the season Saturday with Fred VanVleet (ribs) out, but the former will remain in the starting lineup Sunday despite the latter being cleared, as OG Anunoby (ankle) is now sidelined. Achiuwa posted 17 points, 11 rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks across a season-high 37 minutes against Boston and will look to maintain his strong play against New York.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Notches rare double-double

    Achiuwa notched 17 points (7-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and two steals over 37 minutes during Saturday's 106-104 loss to the Celtics.

    With Fred VanVleet (ribs) sitting out, the Raptors moved Achiuwa into the starting five to counter the Celtics' big frontcourt of Al Horford and Robert Williams. While taking hold of significant playing time, Achiuwa came through with an excellent all-around line, albeit with his usual poor efficiency from the field. OG Anunoby (ankle) exited Saturday's game early and could be in line to sit out Sunday's game against the Knicks along with VanVleet, potentially setting Achiuwa up for a second straight contest in which he garners big minutes.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Starting Saturday

    Achiuwa will join the starting five for Saturday's game against Boston, Keith Smith of reports.

    Achiuwa will man the center spot as the Raptors turn to a big lineup with Fred VanVleet (hip) out. Although it will be the 23-year-old's first start of the season, Achiuwa has impressed over his last four contests, averaging 11.0 points, 5.8 rebounds and 0.8 blocks across 23.7 minutes.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Leads bench in scoring

    Achiuwa notched 14 points (5-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-5 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal over 28 minutes during Saturday's 114-103 loss to the Hawks.

    Achiuwa took advantage of his opportunities from the field, and he also notched his best rebounding performance since Nov. 9. He's now scored in double figures in each of his last three matchups, averaging 12.3 points and 2.7 boards over this brief stretch.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Leads bench with 18 minutes

    Achiuwa logged 10 points (4-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-3 FT), two rebounds and five steals in 18 minutes during Thursday's 124-114 win over the Hornets.

    Achiuwa led the bench with 18 minutes in the victory, scoring in double-digits for the second straight game. He also managed to rack up a career-high five steals, a true outlier if we've ever seen one. Prior to Thursday, he had a combined three steals thus far for the entire season. While he certainly isn't a long-term 12-team asset, the Raptors do have five games next week, making him at least a stream consideration.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Productive defensively in return

    Achiuwa (ankle) scored three points (1-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and added three blocks, two assists and one steal across 12 minutes in Monday's 122-114 loss to the Pacers.

    Achiuwa re-entered the Toronto rotation after he had been sidelined for the previous 24 games with a right ankle injury. He served as the Raptors' top big man off the bench ahead of Christian Koloko (11 minutes), Thaddeus Young (eight minutes), Chris Boucher (four minutes) and Juancho Hernangomez (no minutes, coach's decision), but that distinction didn't mean much while head coach Nick Nurse rode his starters heavily. Expect that trend to continue in competitive games, meaning that Achiuwa might struggle to push past the 20-minute mark while Toronto has all its key starters available.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Returning Monday

    Achiuwa (ankle) is available for Monday's contest against the Pacers, Dustin Dopirak of The Indianapolis Star reports.

    After missing Toronto's past 24 contests, Achiuwa will make his return to the team's lineup Monday. Throughout the 23-year-old's first 12 appearances this season, Achiuwa has averaged 8.8 points, 7.0 rebounds and 1.3 assists across 20.4 minutes per game. The likes of Christian Koloko, Thaddeus Young and Khem Birch are all at risk to see less usage with Achiuwa back in action.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Tabbed as questionable

    Achiuwa (ankle) is considered questionable for Monday's game versus the Pacers, Blake Murphy of reports.

    Achiuwa hasn't appeared in a game since Nov. 9 and has been listed as questionable for the past pair of games, so this doesn't exactly instill a ton of confidence he will be able to make it back. Even if Achiuwa is cleared for his first action in nearly two months, he's likely to be limited.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Still out Friday

    Achiuwa (ankle) is out Friday against the Suns, Josh Lewenberg of reports.

    There was some hope that Achiuwa could return Friday, but he will again be delayed. His next chance to play arrives Monday at Indiana.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Questionable against Suns

    Achiuwa (ankle) is questionable for Friday's game against Phoenix, Aaron Rose of reports.

    Achiuwa hasn't played since early November due to an ankle injury but is getting closer to returning to game action. He'll presumably face a minutes restriction once he's cleared to return.

  • Raptors' Precious Achiuwa: Out Thursday

    Achiuwa (ankle) is out Thursday against the Grizzlies, Tim Bontemps of reports.

    Achiuwa is on the verge of returning from an ankle injury that's kept him out since early November. His next chance to return arrives Friday against the Suns.
