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.

Loses time to Ibaka

December 2, 2019
Boucher was limited to five minutes off the bench in Sunday's 130-110 win over the Jazz, finishing the day with zero points (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt), one rebound and one steal.
Predictably, Boucher was effectively bumped out of the rotation while Serge Ibaka (ankle) returned from a 10-game absence to step back in as the primary backup to starting center Marc Gasol. With averages of 9.1 points, 6.6 rebounds and 0.9 blocks in 17.5 minutes during Ibaka's absence, Boucher showed he can be an effective fantasy producer when given meaningful run, but there won't be much of a pathway to consistent playing time when Toronto is at full strength in the frontcourt.

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.
