Sixers at Raptors Preview

Star Player:

Kawhi Leonard, TOR (21.5 credits): Leonard may be the best player in these playoffs and it’s a wonder why he’s not closer to 25 credits. In fact, Leonard has at least 39 fantasy points in eight-straight games while averaging 52 Dream11 points per game in that span. The fact is, Leonard is taking 20-plus shots and playing 40 minutes a game, which is all you can ask for from one of the most efficient players in the NBA.  

Value Plays:

Marc Gasol, TOR (12 credits): Gasol’s fantasy numbers don’t jump off the page but he’s playing way too much to be priced at 12 credits. We’re talking about a guy who averaged more than 30 Dream11 points per game in the regular season, as he’s averaging 36 minutes across his last three games. He’s also scored at least 24 fantasy points in 11 of his last 12 games and that’s a tough floor to overlook too.   

Jimmy Butler, PHI (18 credits): Butler has been the Sixers best player by a significant margin in this series and it’s clear he wants to carry them to the conference finals. Since a weak Game 1, Butler has at least 44 Dream11 points in the five games since, while averaging 50 Dream11 points per game.  

James Ennis III, PHI (8 credits): Finding cheap players on Philly is tough but Ennis has found himself as one of the most valuable bench pieces in this series. Not only has Ennis played at least 20 minutes in eight-straight games, he’s also averaging nearly 20 Dream11 points per game in that span.

Injuries:

Toronto Raptors –

OG Anunoby – Out – Abdomen

5/2 4:22 AM IST – Anunoby (abdomen) remains without a firm timetable, but the feeling within the organization is he’s not close to returning, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports. “I think we’re a long, long ways away,” coach Nick Nurse said. Anunoby underwent an appendectomy midway through April, and while he was initially given a timetable of roughly two weeks, he’s apparently run into some roadblocks in the recovery process. Expect the second-year forward to remain out through the rest of the Eastern Conference Semifinals and likely longer, based on Nurse’s assessment.

Chris Boucher – GTD – Back

5/9 4:08 AM IST – Boucher (back) is listed as out for Thursday’s Game 6 in Philadelphia. Boucher has been battling back spasms since Game 3 of the Raptors’ first-round series. Even if he ever is deemed fit to play again, Boucher is not expected to play much of a role this postseason.
