Malachi Flynn starting for Raptors Saturday in place of resting Fred VanVleet

Toronto Raptors guard Malachi Flynn is in the lineup Saturday in the team's game against the Memphis Grizzlies.

What It Means:

The Raptors are severely shorthanded in the backcourt on Saturday, as both Kyle Lowry and Fred VanVleet are "resting." As such, Flynn will now be elevated into the starting five as the primary ball-handler for the first unit.

Our models project Flynn for 13.1 points, 4.2 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 28.9 FanDuel points across 32.3 minutes of action.
