Description: Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan will not need surgery to repair his torn thigh muscle according to the Toronto Sun.
Insight: This is fantasy news for fantasy owners as DeRozan is week-to-week. Despite the week-to-week status, he probably won't return until January. Greivis Vasquez, James Johnson, Terrence Ross and Patrick Patterson will all see their values rise, but ultimately Kyle Lowry will be the guy until DeRozan return.
