Vasquez will start for Kyle Lowry (rest) on Saturday at New York.

With Lowry getting the day off for maintenance purposes, Vasquez will man the point for the Raptors. In 16 starts this season, Vasquez averaged 10.9 points (on 45 percent shooting), 3.8 assists, 3.1 rebounds, and 1.6 three-pointers in 28 minutes.

Vasquez was quite efficient with his time during Tuesday's loss to the Mavericks, finishing with 14 points (5-6 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), one rebound, two assists and two steals in just 19 minutes off the bench.

Vasquez struggled in Monday's game, shooting just over 30 percent from the field, while missing all three of his three-point attempts, so it was good to see him get dialed in Tuesday and put up some points. He remains limited in his fantasy value, as his minutes per game (22.6) aren't necessarily the most favorable, but he's still someone to keep an eye on for those in deeper leagues.

Vasquez will move to the bench for Sunday's game against the Spurs.

Vasquez will likely see a reduction in minutes Sunday following his demotion back to the bench. However, he's averaging 23 minutes on the court this season and still holds value in deeper leagues looking for assists and three pointers.

Vasquez got the start Friday in a win over the Clippers, and finished the game with 17 points (6-9 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds and three assists in 23 minutes.

In his previous two games, Vasquez had only scored a combined 13 points, and shot 3-for-11 from the floor Monday against the Bucks. Even when he starts, though, Vasquez usually takes a back seat to DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry in the offense. In his previous 15 starts this season, the Maryland product averaged 10.5 points, 3.1 rebounds and 3.9 assists.

Vasquez scored 18 points (7-9 FG, 4-5 3Pt) with six assists, four rebounds and a steal in 31 minutes during Wednesday's win over the Kings.

The Raptors' scoring stars, DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry, took a back seat to Vasquez and Lou Williams in this one, and Vasquez produced his best performance since moving into the starting lineup six games ago. Expect him to return to his usual complementary role on Friday in Brooklyn.

Vasquez got the start Tuesday and had seven points, four rebounds, and four assists in 28 minutes.

Vasquez' scoring output was a disappointment given that he had scored in double figures in three of his last four games. His contributions in the assist and rebound categories helped bolster his numbers on the night, but he's still a riskier option, even as a starter.

Vasquez scored 12 points (6-11 FG, 0-4 3Pt) with five rebounds and four assists in 33 minutes during Friday's win over the 76ers.

He's picked up his pace a little, averaging 10.3 points, 4.8 assists, 2.8 boards, 1.3 threes and 1.0 steals over his last four games, three of them spent in the starting lineup. Vasquez's hold on a starting spot isn't a secure one, but he could be worth a short-term add in deeper leagues.

Vasquez scored 10 points (4-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-3 FT) with three assists and two rebounds in 31 minutes during Monday's win over the Bucks.

Terrence Ross looked refreshed in his first game off the bench, so it's an open question whether Ross regains his starting spot on Wednesday against the Grizzlies, Vasquez remains in the starting lineup, or someone like James Johnson (who received a surprise DNP - Coach's Decision on Monday) gets the nod instead. Don't rush out to grab Vasquez off your waiver wire just because he suddenlly found himself in the starting five.

Vasquez will enter the starting five for Terrence Ross on Monday in Milwaukee.

In five previous nods this season, Vasquez averaged 12.2 points (on 44 percent shooting), 4.8 assists, 2.8 rebounds, 1.2 three-pointers, and one steal in 31 minutes. Expect him to uphold that standard, as long as he receives expanded run.

Vasquez scored 16 points (7-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt) with four assists, three rebounds, a steal and a block in 25 minutes off the bench Monday.

While Kyle Lowry has trouble getting his shot to fall Monday, Vasquez stepped up with a big night. Until he starts turning in solid performances on a more consistent basis, however, he's probably best left on your waiver wire.
