Description: Raptors center Jonas Valanciunas scored a team-high 17 points during Friday's victory against the Pistons.
Insight: Valanciunas also had seven rebounds, two blocks, and three turnovers. He is a top-75 option.
 
12/17/2014 10:33:00 PM
Description: Raptors center Jonas Valanciunas was efficient with his opportunities on Wednesday.
Insight: Valanciunas only took seven shots, but made six of them and all four of his foul shots. He finished with 16 points and 10 rebounds.
 
12/9/2014 9:27:00 PM
Description: Raptors center Jonas Valanciunas posted his second double-double in as many nights.
Insight: He was very efficient, going 6-of-7 from the field and 6-of-6 from the line for 18 points, 15 rebounds, and three turnovers. Valanciunas is a top-70 player.
 
12/8/2014 10:28:00 PM
Description: Raptors center Jonas Valanciunas had his fifth double-double of the season on Monday against the Nuggets.
Insight: Valanciunas scored 18 points and grabbed 12 rebounds. He shot 8-of-11 to really help the field goal percentage. The center also added four blocks. Without DeMar DeRozan until January, someone needs to step up on offense to help Kyle Lowry, so Valanciunas might just be the guy.
 
11/24/2014 9:57:00 PM
Description: Raptors center Jonas Valanciunas had a double-double during Monday's win over the Suns.
Insight: He was 10-of-11 from the field and 7-of-8 from the line for 27 points, 11 rebounds, one block, and two turnovers. Have to love the efficiency.
 
11/21/2014 10:31:00 PM
Description: Raptors center Jonas Valanciunas had a double-double on Friday versus the Bucks.
Insight: Toronto blew out Milwaukee, 124-83, which is extremely impressive considering DeMar DeRozan shot 1-of-8 from the floor. With DeRozan struggling, Valanciunas stepped up to score 18 points and grab 12 rebounds.

Description: Raptors center Jonas Valanciunas left Tuesday's game against the Thunder. UPDATE: Valanciunas has been cleared to return to action, after x-rays came back negative.

10/29/2014 10:17:00 PM

Insight: He played only 21 minutes, and was 4-of-5 from the field, but 9-of-10 from the line, for his 17 points. Valanciunas also chipped in eight rebounds and a block. It was a solid opening night, and owners can expect his playing to increase as well.
 
10/25/2014 1:39:00 PM
Description: Raptors center Jonas Valanciunas could be poised for a breakout season in 2014-2015.
Insight: Valanciunas dropped his fouls per game from 3.2 to 2.8 after the All-Star break last season and that allowed him to stay on the court to make an impact.
