Jonas Valanciunas: Sees First NBA Action

Rotowire.com
Update: Valanciunas had a quiet night in his first ever NBA action on Wednesday, playing 13 minutes and scoring two points with two blocks.

Recommendation: Raptors coach Dwane Casey is going to work Valanciunas into the rotation slowly after he missed the beginning of the preseason with a calf injury. The rookie certainly didn't look out of place though, showing a willingness to get physical under the basket, set screens and create some space on offense for his teammates. he isn't likely to put up big fantasy numbers this season, but having an athletic true center in the lineup can only help the Raptors' main shooters.
