Top Jakob Poeltl News

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Active at shootaround

    Poeltl, who's listed as questionable due to an ankle injury, was active during Toronto's morning shootaround ahead of Wednesday's game versus Dallas, Aaron Rose of SI.com reports.

    Poeltl left Monday's win over Indiana early after spraining his left ankle, but he appears to be trending in the right direction ahead of Wednesday's contest. His official availability will likely be a game-time decision.

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Night ends early with ankle sprain

    Poeltl has been ruled out for the remainder of Monday's game against Indiana with a left ankle sprain, Kayla Grey of TSN reports. He recorded 15 points (7-11 FG, 1-1 FT), 11 rebounds, four assists and one block in 22 minutes before departing.

    Poeltl appeared to injure the ankle in the third quarter and was unable to return after making a visit to the locker room. Considering that the big man previously sat out 11 straight games in January with an injury to the same ankle, it wouldn't be surprising if Poeltl was forced to miss time again. Official word on the extent of Poeltl's injury won't be known until he's sent in for further testing, but if he's out for Wednesday's game against Dallas, the Raptors would likely turn to Kelly Olynyk as their starting center.

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Questionable for Wednesday

    Poeltl (ankle) is questionable to play Wednesday versus Dallas, Josh Lewenberg of TSN.ca reports.

    Poeltl not immediately being ruled out for Wednesday's game is a good sign after he was unable to return to Monday's contest due to a left ankle sprain. That being said, his status will need to be monitored. Kelly Olynyk would likely step into a featured role in the frontcourt if Poeltl can't suit up.

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Visits locker room

    Poeltl went to the locker room after appearing to suffer a left ankle injury Monday, Josh Lewenberg of TSN.ca reports.

    Poeltl reportedly went to get his ankle re-taped, per Lewenberg, and the team is hopeful that he'll be able to continue in the contest. Kelly Olynyk would likely be asked to eat up minutes at center down the stretch if Poeltl is ruled out.

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Strong showing on glass

    Poeltl totaled 12 points (6-13 FG), 13 rebounds, six assists and two blocks across 26 minutes during Friday's 123-121 win over the Hawks.

    It was the 28-year-old center's 18th double-double of the season and fifth in the last nine games, while the six assists tied his season high. Poeltl is averaging 13.1 points, 10.2 boards, 2.4 assists and 2.1 blocks during that nine-game stretch while shooting 59.8 percent from the floor.

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Posts another double-double

    Poeltl provided 19 points (8-15 FG, 3-4 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal across 30 minutes during Wednesday's 127-125 loss to the Pacers.

    Poeltl posted his fourth double-double over his last seven appearances, and the big man has been quite an asset on both ends of the court for the Raptors. He seems to have left a nagging ankle injury in the rearview, and he should remain a capable double-double threat for Toronto as long as he remains healthy.

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Fills stat sheet Friday

    Poeltl recorded 16 points (7-11 FG, 2-2 FT), 13 rebounds, three assists, six blocks and three steals in 37 minutes during Friday's 107-104 win over Houston.

    Poeltl recorded one of his best stat lines of the season, finishing just four blocks shy of a triple-double and making his presence felt on both ends of the court. Poeltl is expected to hold a prominent role for the Raptors going forward after the team traded away several regulars before the deadline, and an increase in touches should bolster Poeltl's fantasy value, which is already decent given his ability to post a double-double anytime he steps on the court. He's reached that feat in three of his last five outings since returning from an ankle injury that sidelined him for most of January.

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Posts double-double in win

    Poeltl recorded 12 points (5-7 FG, 2-2 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists and one block across 33 minutes during Wednesday's 123-117 victory over the Hornets.

    Poeltl has excellent touch around the rim, shoots the ball at a high clip and is an outstanding rebounder -- traits that make him a reliable fantasy contributor and a player who can post double-doubles regularly. He missed 11 games in January due to a nagging ankle injury, but he seems to be trending in the right direction now that he's back on the court, and he should have a sizable role if he stays with Toronto past the trade deadline.

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Double-doubles in loss

    Poeltl ended Sunday's 135-127 double-overtime loss to the Thunder with 19 points (8-9 FG, 3-4 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists and two blocks across 33 minutes.

    Poeltl looked rusty in his return to action Friday against the Rockets, but he certainly found his stride Sunday night. The center racked up his 14th double-double of the campaign and was able to match his season-best mark of 19 points in the loss.

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Gets limited run in return

    Poeltl (ankle) posted six points (3-5 FG), five rebounds, two blocks and one assist across 20 minutes in Friday's 135-106 loss to the Rockets.

    Poeltl is averaging 26.4 minutes per game for the season, but he was unsurprisingly held below that mark Friday while he suited up for the first time since Jan. 7 following a near-month-long recovery from a sprained left ankle. The veteran center may need another game or two to ramp up before he resumes playing a 25-to-30-minute role on a regular basis, but he's worthy of a pickup in 10-team leagues where he might have been available now that he's playing again. Poeltl won't typically post any eye-opening scoring totals and is a negative in the three-pointers and free-throw percentage categories, but he's a stellar contributor in three other categories (blocks, field-goal percentage and rebounds).

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Will play Friday

    Poeltl (ankle) is available for Friday's game against the Rockets, Eric Koreen of The Athletic reports.

    Poeltl missed the previous 11 games due to a left ankle sprain, but he was a full participant in Thursday's practice session and has been cleared to return to game action a day later. However, the Raptors could monitor his workload during his first game back on the court.

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Nabs questionable tag

    Poeltl (ankle) is questionable for Friday's game versus the Rockets, Aaron Rose of SI.com reports.

    Poeltl is in danger of missing his 12th straight contest Friday with a sprained left ankle despite returning to practice Thursday. With Jontay Porter (back) doubtful, Thaddeus Young could continue to receive extended minutes at the center position.

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Full participant in practice

    Poeltl (ankle) fully participated in Thursday's practice session, Eric Koreen of The Athletic reports.

    Poeltl has missed the last 11 games due to a sprained left ankle, but his full participation in practice is an encouraging sign. It's not yet clear whether he'll be available Friday against Houston, but he seems to be trending toward a return to game action. However, once Poeltl is cleared to return, it wouldn't be surprising to see him face a minutes restriction during his first few games back.

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Won't suit up Tuesday

    Poeltl (ankle) is out for Tuesday's game versus the Bulls, Blake Murphy of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Poeltl will miss his 11th straight game Tuesday after being downgraded from questionable to out with a left ankle sprain. Poeltl's next chance to suit up is Friday's matchup with Houston.

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Listed as questionable

    Poeltl (ankle) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Bulls, Blake Murphy of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Poeltl has missed 10 straight games due to a left ankle sprain, but he's nearing a return to game action. He returned to practice Monday, but coach Darko Rajakovic said the center still needs to regain his conditioning, per Eric Koreen of The Athletic. While Poeltl will likely return to game action sometime this week, fantasy managers should expect him to have restrictions for at least his first few games back.

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Won't play Sunday

    Poeltl (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Atlanta, Josh Lewenberg of TSN.ca reports

    Poeltl was upgraded to doubtful prior to being downgraded to out Sunday, a sign that he could be closing in on a return to action for the first time since Jan. 7. If Poeltl is able to practice Monday, he'll have a good chance at being cleared to play Tuesday against Chicago.

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Unlikely for Sunday

    Poeltl (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's matchup with the Hawks.

    Poeltl looks on track to miss a 10th straight game Sunday due to a left ankle sprain, but after he taking part in half-court work Wednesday, he's steadily ramping up and looks on pace to return to action at some point next week. Expect Poeltl to be ruled out for Sunday's game shortly before the 6 p.m. ET tipoff, but he could have a more realistic shot at suiting up Tuesday in Chicago if he's able to get in a practice Monday.

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Officially ruled out

    Poeltl (ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Clippers, Aaron Rose of SI.com reports.

    Coach Darko Rajakovic said Thursday that Poeltl was unlikely to play against the Clippers, so it isn't very surprising to see the center officially ruled out. However, Poeltl has made progress in his recovery recently, and he's considered day-to-day after doing half-court work Wednesday.

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Unlikely to play Friday

    Poeltl (ankle) is unlikely to play Friday against the Clippers, Aaron Rose of SI.com reports.

    Poeltl did half-court work Wednesday and is considered day-to-day for now, but he'll likely be forced to miss a ninth consecutive game due to his ankle injury. The center will likely need to progress to full-contact work before he's in the mix to return to game action, but he at least seems to be trending in the right direction.

  • Raptors' Jakob Poeltl: Considered day-to-day

    Poeltl (ankle) did half-court work Wednesday and is now considered day-to-day, Josh Lewenberg of TSN.ca reports.

    Poeltl has missed the past eight games for Toronto, but he's getting closer to a return and was a partial participant at Wednesday's practice. He hasn't been cleared for full contact yet, but that's expected to happen soon. For now, Poeltl should be considered doubtful for Friday's game against the Clippers.
