Toronto Raptors PG Kyle Lowry (whiplash) is questionable to play in Saturday’s game vs. the Brooklyn Nets. Marc Gasol and Norman Powell remain out of the lineup for Toronto.

Lowry was forced to leave Friday night’s win over the Pacers. He took a bad fall and hurt his neck. Gasol has been sidelined after re-injuring his hamstring and Powell has a fractured finger.

Fantasy basketball analysis: Toronto Raptors PG Fred VanVleet

I think we were all expected Lowry to be ruled out and ultimately I think that’ll be the case. Still, questionable is pretty optimistic, so be on the lookout for updates. If Lowry is out, Fred VanVleet ($6,900) will be a must-play in cash games on DraftKings. He’ll see close to 40 minutes if not more and his usage should eclipse 30% easily. Terence Davis ($3,800) and Serge Ibaka ($6,900) are also strong plays along with Pascal Siakam ($8,200).
