|Yuta Watanabe: Handles small bench role Friday|
Watanabe (quadriceps) posted three points (1-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds and two steals across 12 minutes Friday in the Raptors' 117-115 win over the Rockets.
The Scoop: After a four-game absence, Watanabe was upgraded to available for the contest and held a small role on the second unit. Toronto didn't have OG Anunoby (thigh) or Fred VanVleet (knee) available Friday, so Watanabe could be squeezed out of the rotation when both return to action for the postseason, if not Sunday's regular-season finale versus the Knicks.
