2019 Fantasy Outlook
Compared to a 2017-18 rookie campaign in Golden State during which he played just one game, Boucher saw a huge increase in playing time last season. While that equated to participation in 28 games overall, Boucher still averaged just 5.8 minutes per contest. He churned out averages of 3.3 points and 2.0 rebounds, posting a 44.7 percent success rate from the floor, including 32.4 percent from three-point range. Boucher displayed above-average floor-stretching capability during his two college seasons at Oregon, shooting 33.9 and 35.0 percent from distance, respectively. He also turned in an excellent tenure in the Las Vegas Summer League in July, averaging 23.0 points, 9.8 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.3 blocks across 31.0 minutes over four games. Boucher was slated to continue his development during this month's FIBA World Cup, but he'll end up missing the tournament for personal reasons. Looking ahead to the 2019-20 season, Boucher projects to remain firmly behind both Marc Gasol and Serge Ibaka on the depth chart at center. However, any injuries to either of the two veterans would certainly open up some opportunity for him. Additionally, with both Gasol and Ibaka slated for unrestricted free agency following the coming campaign, there should be a certain degree of motivation to prepare Boucher for a potential starting job, or a very expanded role at minimum, in the 2020-21 season.

Boucher managed just one block in six minutes during Monday's 101-92 victory over Utah.
ANALYSIS
Despite the fact Marc Gasol (rest) was given the night off, Boucher was barely in the rotation Monday. After a big night last Tuesday, Boucher has come back to earth with a thud and can safely be left on waivers in almost every format.

2018

After a one-game cameo with Golden State the prior season, Boucher moved to Toronto for the 2018-19 campaign. He got his first real taste of NBA action with the Raptors, playing in 28 games as a reserve. His appearances came in fits and starts, as he spent the bulk of the season with Toronto's G League squad, Raptors 905. In the G League, Boucher was dominant, averaging 27.2 points, 11.4 rebounds and 4.1 blocks in 28 games. He was named the 2018-19 NBA G League Most Valuable Player and NBA G League Defensive Player of the Year, becoming the first player to win both awards in the same season. When he played with the Raptors, the Oregon product logged 5.8 minutes per contest. Despite the limited playing time, he put up per-game averages of 3.3 points and 2.0 rebounds. Defensively, he averaged almost one block per game. In the final contest of the regular season, the Raptors gave Boucher by far his most playing time. He played 24:37 that night and picked up his first career double-double with 15 points and 13 boards. That helped power the Raptors to a 20-point win over the Timberwolves.

2017

Chris Boucher was unable to work out for teams before the 2017 NBA Draft due to his left knee injury. That led to Boucher being undrafted. But he eventually signed a two-way contract with the Golden State Warriors. On Jan. 17, he made his G League debut and scored 11 points in a loss to Reno. Boucher played in 20 G League games for the Santa Cruz Warriors and delivered per game averages of 11.8 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.1 blocks. On Feb. 28, Boucher collected a season-high 19 rebounds during a win over the Northern Arizona Suns. On Mar. 10, the 6-foo-10 big man scored a season-high 25 points, plus 12 rebounds and three blocks, in a win over the Memphis Hustle. The rookie had three G League games in which he swatted four shots. On Mar. 21, Boucher made is NBA debut for the Golden State Warriors. He received only one minute of run and grabbed one rebound. Due to his two-way contract, Boucher was unable to join the Warriors for their extended playoff run. The Golden State Warriors made it to the 2018 NBA Finals, where they swept the Cleveland Cavaliers to win the NBA Championship.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
After nabbing big man Jordan Bell in the second round of the draft in June, the Warriors decided to go back to the University of Oregon well to sign Boucher, who had served as Bell’s backup in the frontcourt last season. Much like Bell, the springy Boucher counts rim protection as his top skill, thanks in no small part to his 6-foot-10 frame and 7-foot-4 wingspan. Along with chipping in averages of 11.8 points and 6.1 rebounds per game, Boucher actually bested Bell for the team lead with 2.5 blocks per game as a senior. Unfortunately for Boucher, his college career came to a premature end during the Pac-12 tournament semifinals in March, when he suffered a torn ACL that required surgery. The procedure likely contributed to Boucher going unselected, but his two-way deal with the Warriors will allow him to move forward with his rehab under the supervision of the reigning NBA champs. Boucher will likely be sidelined for most, if not all, of the first half of the season, but if he’s able to reclaim some health and explosiveness upon returning from the injury, he could eventually carve out a spot in the Warriors’ frontcourt rotation. That’s unlikely to materialize in 2017-18, however, as Boucher’s appearances are expected to come almost exclusively in the G-League.
