Landry Fields SG/SF TOR 5 Months

Landry Fields (back) is available to play against the Nets on Wednesday.

He missed Game 4 on Sunday due to back spasms which he appeared to suffer in Game 3. Fields is used more for when the Raptors need size or rebounding on free throw attempts and he's no lock to see double-digit minutes tonight.

Landry Fields will not play against the Nets on Sunday due to back spasms.

He went diving into the stands on Friday and perhaps that's what caused this injury. Fields had back spasms earlier in his career and missed plenty of action, so he could be looking at a multiple-game absence. Greivis Vasquez and John Salmons may get some more run.

Landry Fields may return to the Raptors' rotation for Game 2 on Tuesday.

Fields "could get some time" defending Paul Pierce or Joe Johnson, according to beat writer Ryan Wolstat. He recently missed time with an upper respiratory illness but he's since fully recovered, and if he does play his minutes should come at the expense of Terrence Ross or John Salmons.

Landry Fields will not play against the Bucks on Monday due to an upper-respiratory illness.

He's been out of the rotation anyway and the Raptors won't miss him. Fields probably won't play on Wednesday night and has played just 10.7 minutes per game in 30 outings. Obviously, signing him was a bit of a mistake a couple off seasons ago.

Landry Fields did not make the trip to Detroit as he is still fighting an upper respiratory sickness.

Even if Fields was in uniform, he might not have played as he's picked up his fair share of DNPs this season. Fields is averaging 2.3 points, and 2.0 rebounds on the season, and is not a fantasy option in any format.

Landry Fields will not play against the Knicks on Friday due to a respiratory illness.

He won't get to play against his former team tonight, but the illness might have been a moot point in that regard considering he has four straight DNPs. Fields has no fantasy value.

Landry Fields played well as a fill-in starter for Terrence Ross (ankle) on Sunday, scoring eight points on 4-of-5 shooting with six rebounds and one steal.

This came out of the blue given Fields' rough season, to put it mildly. The four-year veteran missed time after having wrist surgery and he's averaging a career-worst 2.3 points on 35.6 percent shooting, a far cry from his impressive rookie campaign with the Knicks (9.7 points, 39.3 percent from downtown). Ross may be ready to play in Toronto's next game on Friday and there's no reason to consider Fields in average fantasy formats despite this solid performance.

Landry Fields will be in uniform on Tuesday for the first time since having wrist surgery in January.

Whether he'll play is another question entirely, and either way he's not on fantasy radars, but it's good to see him healthy again. The Raptors will pay him another guaranteed $6.3 million next season before his contract mercifully expires in the summer of 2015.

Landry Fields had "minor" surgery to address a nerve issue in his right wrist on Tuesday, and he won't resume basketball activities for three weeks.

Fields previously had elbow surgery to address his troublesome ulnar nerve, and his tenure with the Raptors is going from bad to worse. He's averaging just 2.4 points on 35.6 percent shooting this season, and had fallen out of the rotation with John Salmons playing well in a reserve role.

Landry Fields (personal reasons) didn't travel with the Raptors for Monday's game in Charlotte.

Fields hasn't had a significant foothold in the rotation all season and his absence won't alter any fantasy lineups.
