25-Year-Old GuardG
Toronto Raptors
2018 Fantasy Outlook
Powell was a minor reserve on the wing for much of the 2017-18 season and averaged just 15.2 minutes, which was down from 18.0 a year prior. That translated to 5.5 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game, while shooting 40.1 percent from the field and a brutal 28.5 percent from deep. Powell was essentially safe to avoid for Fantasy purposes and that shouldn't change heading into the upcoming campaign. The Raptors dealt DeMar DeRozan to the Spurs in a trade that brought both Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green Toronto. That's two more talented bodies on the wing that will be well ahead of Powell. In addition, C.J. Miles, Delon Wright and OG Anunoby are all expected to see time at either shooting guard or small forward, which leaves only a handful of minutes for 25-year-old. Despite the role, Powell was extended a four-year, $42 million contract last offseason, so he'll be getting paid much more than his workload might suggest. Read Past Outlooks

Starting Wednesday
GToronto Raptors
February 13, 2019
Powell will start Wednesday against the Wizards.
Kawhi Leonard is nursing a sore knee and won't play Wednesday, so coach Nick Nurse will give Norman Powell the nod at shooting guard, while shifting Danny Green up to small forward. In two previous starts this season, Powell has averaged 7.5 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 25.5 minutes.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
Powell found himself being integrated into the rotation more and more in his second NBA season, playing in a career-high 76 games, while averaging 8.4 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.1 assists across 18.0 minutes. Those marked improvements across the board for the 24-year-old wing, although he did shoot just 32.4 percent from the three-point line, which was a significant decrease from the 40.4 percent he shot during his rookie campaign. While he spent the majority of his time on the floor backing up DeMar DeRozan at shooting guard, the ineffective play of DeMarre Carroll prompted the Raptors to experiment more with Powell at small forward. He was solid overall following the switch and had somewhat of a coming out party in the playoffs, averaging 11.7 points, 3.1 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.7 three-pointers across 25.3 minutes in nine games against the Bucks and Cavaliers. His strong play allowed the Raptors to part ways with Carroll in the offseason, as he was dealt to the Nets in what was essentially a salary dump. However, Toronto did opt to bring in C.J. Miles on a three-year, $25 million contract, which still complicates Powell's role a bit. The two are expected to battle for rights to the starting small forward role during training camp, meaning the results of that competition are going to have a large impact on Powell's potential as a Fantasy prospect. Still, whether he's given a spot in the top unit or not, Powell's youth and impressive play in the 2016-17 playoffs should mean a decent bump in minutes from the 18.0 he averaged as a sophomore.
After playing four years at UCLA, Powell was drafted by the Raptors with the 46th pick in the 2015 NBA Draft. The 6-4, 22-year-old shooting guard showed how important experience can be in a transition to the NBA by his strong play at the Las Vegas Summer League, where he was the only rookie player to earn First Team honors, averaging 18.2 points, 1.0 three-pointer, 4.2 rebounds, 1.5 steals, and 1.5 blocks in 26 minutes per game while shooting 51 percent from the field, 44 percent from three, and 71 percent from the line. The Raptors have Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, Cory Joseph, and Terrence Ross in line to get most of the backcourt minutes, but Ross has struggled to put everything together despite having a lot of opportunities over the last two seasons, and that could open the door for Powell to have a meaningful backup role in his rookie season. Don't count on him to be of use in most standard leagues, but Powell could be an interesting stash in dynasty formats that have non-active spots to stash players in.
