Jeff Dowtin: Let go by Toronto
Dowin was waived by the Raptors on Friday, Blake Murphy of Sportsnet reports.
This isn't a big surprise, as Dowtin's non-guaranteed deal was due to be partially guaranteed on Saturday. The 76ers hold Dowtin's G League rights, so there's a good chance he ends up in Philadelphia.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Jeff Dowtin: Good to go Friday
Dowtin (ankle) is available for Friday's preseason finale against Washington, Josh Lewenberg of TSN.ca reports.
Dowtin had been dealing with an ankle injury, but it appears he's moved past the issue. While he'll be available, there's no guarantee Dowtin will see any playing time, as Toronto has its entire roster available and will presumably use the final exhibition as a dress rehearsal for the regular season....

Raptors' Jeff Dowtin: Remains out Tuesday
Dowtin (ankle) didn't play in Tuesday's 106-102 preseason win over the Bulls.
It's unclear if Dowtin's absence is due to still recovery from ankle surgery or a removal from Toronto's rotation. Either way, his next chance to suit up is Friday's preseason matchup with Washington.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Jeff Dowtin: Doesn't play Sunday
Dowtin didn't play in Sunday's 112-99 preseason win over the Kings.
Dowtin missed Summer League play while recovering from ankle surgery that he underwent following the 2022-23 season. He's been participating in practices during training camp, so it's unclear whether his absence from Sunday's matchup was due to his offseason ankle issue. The 26-year-old is on a non-guaranteed deal ahead of the 2023-24 campaign and will have to compete for a roster spot over the next few weeks.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Jeff Dowtin: Signs training camp deal
Dowtin (ankle) signed a training camp deal with the Raptors on Saturday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Dowtin missed all of Summer League after undergoing an offseason surgery on his right ankle. Still, he will get a chance to earn a roster spot in training camp after spending the 2022-23 season as a two-way player for Toronto. As part of the deal, Dowtin will receive a significant salary guarantee if he ends up on the Raptors' opening night roster.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Jeff Dowtin: Won't play in Summer League
Dowtin (ankle) won't play in any of Toronto's Summer League contests, Vivek Jacob of the Raptors' official site reports.
Dowtin operated under a two-way deal with the Raptors last year and made just 25 NBA appearances, averaging 2.4 points in 10.4 minutes per game. He underwent ankle surgery following the 2022-23 campaign and will remain sidelined throughout Summer League action, but there's been no indication the undrafted guard out of Rhode Island (2020) is in danger of missing the start of next season. With Fred VanVleet no longer in the mix, Dowtin could compete for a sizable role with the Raptors in 2023-24.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Jeff Dowtin: Undergoes surgery
Dowtin underwent surgery on his right ankle Tuesday, Josh Lewenberg of TSN.ca reports.
Dowtin is set to wear a walking boot for the next two weeks and rehab into Toronto in the offseason. There is no indication that he won't be ready for the 2023-24 campaign. Dowtin averaged 2.4 points and 1.2 assists in 10.4 minutes across 25 games for Toronto last as a two-way player.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Jeff Dowtin: Ineligible moving forward
Dowtin (not injury related) is listed as out for Friday's game versus Boston, Blake Murphy of Sportsnet.ca reports
Dowtin is one of Toronto's two-way players. Despite appearing in only 25 games, he was active for 50, which is the maximum for a two-way player in a single season. This means that Dowtin can't play any more contests for the Raptors in the regular season or playoffs, unless his contract is converted into a standard deal.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Jeff Dowtin: Inactive against Celtics
Dowtin (not injury related) won't play in Wednesday's game versus Boston, Michael Grange of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Dowtin has run out of NBA games on his two-way deal. The Raptors have until Thursday afternoon to decide if they want to convert his contract to a standard deal for the rest of the season. If Toronto opts not to, Dowtin's 2022-23 campaign will be over.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Jeff Dowtin: Makes impact in easy win
Dowtin recorded nine points (3-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), three rebounds, four assists and three steals across 29 minutes during Friday's 118-97 win over the Pistons.
Dowtin was given some extra run in an easy win with the Raptors missing Gary Trent (elbow), Precious Achiuwa (hamstring) and Scottie Barnes (wrist). The four assists and three steals both marked career highs for the second-year pro out of Rhode Island. He may stay in the rotation Sunday against the Wizards if the same trio of teammates remains sidelined.... See More ... See Less
Raptors' Jeff Dowtin: Gets light run Wednesday
Dowtin (ankle) played six minutes off the bench Wednesday in the Raptors' 118-114 loss to the Pacers, finishing with two points (1-1 FG) and no other statistics.
Dowtin, one of Toronto's two two-way players, missed the G League Raptors 905's most recent game Tuesday against the College Park Skyhawks due to a listed right ankle injury, but he was able to play through the issue for the shorthanded NBA squad Wednesday. Toronto ruled out six players due to injury ahead of the contest, enabling Dowtin to handle a light role off the bench behind backcourt starters Fred VanVleet and Will Barton. So long as Toronto gets one of Scottie Barnes (wrist) or Gary Trent (elbow) back for Friday's game against the Pistons, Dowtin could find himself back outside of head coach Nick Nurse's rotation....

The 905 won their first three games of March. Dowtin averaged 21.3 points and 5.7 assists across the three-game span. Though those rates will worsen at least a little once Dalano Banton (thumb) returns from his injury, Dowtin's excellence is expected to continue until further notice.... See More ... See Less

Dowtin logged one assist across his two minutes during the Toronto Raptors' 123-105 win at Portland on Jan. 28. But since then, he has been part of their G League team. Dowtin is averaging 14.1 points and 5.5 assists per game in the G League.... See More ... See Less
