Joseph supplied 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt), five rebounds, three assists and two steals over 27 minutes during Thursday’s 108-89 loss to the Cavaliers in Game 2 of the series.The 24-year-old was the only Raptors player to hit at least half of his shots, and provided some valuable offensive contributions with Kyle Lowry in particular struggling once again in Game 2. Joseph has provided a spark off the bench on several other occasions this postseason — with totals of 18, 16, 15 and 14 points in games throughout the quarterfinal and semifinal rounds — and may be called upon for similar production during the remainder of the series if Lowry continues to scuffle.

Joseph put up 14 points (7-17 FG, 0-1 3Pt), one rebound and an assist across 37 minutes in Monday’s 94-87 overtime loss to the Heat in Game 4 of the series.With backcourt starters Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan combining for just 19 points on 6-for-28 shooting, Joseph was forced to step up off the bench, and turned in his best scoring effort since tallying 15 points in Game 6 of the Raptors’ first-round series with the Pacers. Over 11 postseason appearances, Joseph is averaging 10.1 points (on 53% shooting from the field), 2.5 assists and 1.9 rebounds across 24.5 minutes per game.
May 6, 2016
Joseph tallied eight points (3-7 FG, 2-2 FT), four assists, and two rebounds across 26 minutes in Thursday’s 96-92 overtime win over the Heat in Game 2 of the series.Joseph has been dogged by foul trouble in both of the first two games of the series, but it hasn’t had much of an impact on his playing time, as he frequently sees around 22-to-28 minutes an outing. Kyle Lowry’s shooting woes have been an issue throughout the postseason, but it doesn’t seem likely that coach Dwane Casey will reduce the All-Star’s role as a result, leaving little opportunity for Joseph to pick up more minutes.
April 16, 2016
Joseph scored 18 points (5-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 7-8 FT) while adding three rebounds, three assists and a steal in 24 minutes off the bench Saturday as the Raptors lost 100-90 to the Pacers in Game 1 of their first round series.With both DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry struggling to score against the Pacers’ defense, it fell on Joseph to provide the team with a spark by attacking the rim, but his contributions weren’t enough to get the team a win. Toronto isn’t going to go far in the postseason if Joseph continues to be their leading scorer, but expect him to return to his usual complementary role Monday when the Raptors attempt to level the series on home court.
April 13, 2016
Joseph (coach’s decision) didn’t end up seeing the floor in Tuesday’s 122-98 win over the 76ers.We’re not taking this as evidence that Joseph was dropped from the rotation; instead, it’s likely just the case where coach Dwane Casey wanted to rest one of his key bench players for one half of the team’s season-ending back-to-back set. It’s quite likely that starting point guard Kyle Lowry, who played 26 minutes in the win, could be held out Wednesday against the Nets to rest up for the postseason, in which case Joseph would be the top candidate to enter the starting lineup. Joseph provided 18 points (6-6 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 4-5 FT), nine assists, and a steal over 35 minutes in his last turn in the starting lineup April 8 against the Pacers, so he could make for a quality low-cost DFS option at point guard if he indeed enters the starting five again Wednesday.

  • Ankle
Date: Nov 27, 2014
Status: OUT
Joseph (ankle) is listed as questionable for Friday’s game against the Kings.Joseph had previously been listed as doubtful before not playing in Wednesday’s game against the Pacers, so the status upgrade should offer him a better shot at returning to action Friday.

Date: Nov 25, 2014
Status: OUT
Joseph (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Wednesday’s game, the San Antonio Express News’ Dan McCarney reports.This would be the second game he would miss with the ankle injury, putting the Spurs in a difficult situation, with Tony Parker as the only healthy point guard. Danny Green, Manu Ginobili and Boris Diaw are all capable of running the offense, however.

Date: Nov 23, 2014
Status: OUT

Date: Nov 21, 2014
Status: OUT
Joseph suffered a mild ankle sprain Friday and will not return, Project Spurs’ Paul Garcia reports.He rolled the ankle, and then attempted to play through it, but the Spurs eventually opted to remove him for good. San Antonio plays again Saturday, and Joseph was the only healthy point guard behind Tony Parker on the roster, so things will get a little interesting if Joseph misses more time.

Status: OUT
Joseph (ankle) will be doubtful for Saturday’s game, the San Antonio Express News’ Jeff McDonald reports.He suffered a mild ankle sprain Friday and did not return. If Friday’s game is any indication, Boris Diaw will serve as the backup point guard Saturday. The Spurs don’t play again until Wednesday, so Joseph should be able to heal by then.
