Dec. 15 8:49 PM PT9:49 PM MT10:49 PM CT11:49 PM ET4:49 GMT12:49 9:49 PM MST11:49 PM EST8:49 UAE05:4923:49 ET10:49 PM CTNaN:� - Jonas Valanciunas scored 14 points Friday, going 7 of 11 from the field, as the Toronto Raptors defeated the Brooklyn Nets 120-87. Valanciunas pulled down five rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of +33 in his 21:42 on the floor. He added two blocks.
Analysis: Perhaps feeling some heat from improving youngster Jakob Poeltl, Valanciunas has stepped it up lately by averaging 19 points and 10.3 rebounds over his last three games. The Lithuanian has been tough to stop in the post during the surge, having recorded a .694 field goal percentage over his past four outings.

Valanciunas grabbed 11 rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +16 in his 30:28 of playing time. He added one steal. Valanciunas went 1 of 1 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Valanciunas has posted back-to-back 20-10 games after not even reaching double figures in rebounds in 13 straight contests. Maybe he's starting to get a better understanding of his job. ''It doesn't matter which spot on the court I'm in. They pay me to fight for the rebounds,'' he said.
Dec. 12 9:50 AM PT10:50 AM MT11:50 AM CT12:50 PM ET17:50 GMT1:50 10:50 AM MST12:50 PM EST21:50 UAE18:5012:50 ET11:50 AM CTNaN:� - Jonas Valanciunas had a season high-tying 23 points Monday on 8-of-10 shooting as the Toronto Raptors lost to the Los Angeles Clippers 96-91. Valanciunas pulled down 15 rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +3 in his 27:44 on the floor. Valanciunas went 1 of 1 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Valanciunas scored 17 points in the first half Monday, more than he had scored in any game since Nov. 15. The Raptors next visit Phoenix on Wednesday, and Valanciunas missed all five of his field-goal attempts against the Suns on Dec. 5.

Valanciunas pulled down eight rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +8 in his 18:19 on the floor. He added one block.
Analysis: Though he managed at least seven rebounds for a fifth straight game, Valanciunas has just 12 points over his last two and still isn't getting a wealth of minutes. Though the bruising big man is still a useful fantasy player, his long-term outlook isn't as promising as younger teammates Jakob Poeltl and Pascal Siakam.

Nov. 15 8:40 PM PT9:40 PM MT10:40 PM CT11:40 PM ET4:40 GMT12:40 9:40 PM MST11:40 PM EST8:40 UAE05:4023:40 ET10:40 PM CTNaN:� - Jonas Valanciunas scored 21 points Wednesday on 6-of-8 shooting as the Toronto Raptors defeated the New Orleans Pelicans 125-116. Valanciunas grabbed six rebounds and dished out two assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +1 in his 28:53 on the floor. He added one block.
Analysis: Valanciunas is still a bit too inconsistent to be considered an upper-level fantasy center, but he's been a useful one by averaging 13.7 points on 62.2 percent shooting along with 7.8 rebounds over a five-game stretch. His block totals still remain laughably low for a 7-footer, though.
Nov. 14 7:47 PM PT8:47 PM MT9:47 PM CT10:47 PM ET3:47 GMT11:47 8:47 PM MST10:47 PM EST7:47 UAE (+1)04:4722:47 ET9:47 PM CTNaN:� - Jonas Valanciunas scored 12 points Tuesday on 5-of-9 shooting as the Toronto Raptors topped the Houston Rockets 129-113.

Nov. 7 8:11 PM PT9:11 PM MT10:11 PM CT11:11 PM ET4:11 GMT12:11 9:11 PM MST11:11 PM EST8:11 UAE05:1123:11 ET10:11 PM CTNaN:� - Jonas Valanciunas scored 21 points Tuesday on 6-of-7 shooting as the Toronto Raptors defeated the Chicago Bulls 119-114. Valanciunas pulled down 10 rebounds and did not have an assist, tallying a plus-minus of +9 in his 24:02 of playing time. Valanciunas went 1 of 1 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Valanciunas may want to lobby the league to put the Bulls on the schedule a few more times. The big Lithuanian has racked up 44 points and 25 rebounds in Toronto's two meetings with Chicago, but has averaged only 6.3 points and five boards in the four other games he's played. To be fair, he's just getting back in form after recently missing four games with an ankle injury.
Nov. 5 6:14 PM PT7:14 PM MT8:14 PM CT9:14 PM ET2:14 GMT10:14 7:14 PM MST9:14 PM EST6:14 UAE (+1)03:1421:14 ET8:14 PM CTNaN:� - Jonas Valanciunas scored six points Sunday on 3-of-4 shooting as the Toronto Raptors lost to the Washington Wizards 107-96.

Valanciunas grabbed five rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -7 in his 13:55 of playing time.
Oct. 21 5:10 PM PT6:10 PM MT7:10 PM CT8:10 PM ET0:10 GMT8:10 5:10 PM MST7:10 PM EST4:10 UAE (+1)02:1020:10 ET7:10 PM CTNaN:� - Valanciunas said he will play Wednesday against Denver after missing the past four games with an injured ankle. He was able to practice Tuesday and had been listed as probable.
Analysis: Valanciunas had a big season opener against the Bulls with 23 points and 15 rebounds, but then sprained his ankle two days later against the 76ers and hasn't played since.
Oct. 19 7:38 PM PT8:38 PM MT9:38 PM CT10:38 PM ET2:38 GMT10:38 7:38 PM MST9:38 PM EST6:38 UAE (+1)04:3822:38 ET9:38 PM CTNaN:� - Jonas Valanciunas scored 23 points Thursday on 9-of-17 shooting as the Toronto Raptors topped the Chicago Bulls 117-101. Valanciunas pulled down 15 rebounds and had two assists, tallying a plus-minus of -3 in his 30:30 of playing time. He added two steals.
Analysis: If his opener is any indication, Valanciunas could be in line for a breakout season after averaging 12 points and 9.5 rebounds last season.
