Raptors' Precious Achiuwa (hamstring) could miss Friday game
Toronto Raptors power forward Precious Achiuwa (right hamstring tightness) is questionable for Friday versus the Detroit Pistons.
Achiuwa remained sidelined at Thursday's practice after sitting out Wednesday versus the Indiana Pacers. The same goes for Scottie Barnes (wrist) and Gary Trent Jr. (elbow). If they remain out Friday, Jakob Poeltl and Chris Boucher will have additional minutes available again in the frontcourt. Poeltl played 36 minutes on Wednesday and scored 23 points with 8 boards, 1 assist, 2 steals, and 2 blocks. Boucher had 11 points, 6 rebounds, 1 steal, 3 blocks, and 1 3-pointer in 28 minutes.
numberFire's models project Achiuwa for 5.1 minutes and 4.4 FanDuel points on Friday. Poeltl scored 45.1 FanDuel points in 35.6 minutes on Wednesday, while Boucher had 30.2 FanDuel points in 27.7 minutes.
