Raptors' Fred VanVleet: Expected back during weekend

Coach Nick Nurse said VanVleet (hamstring) is on track to return sometime over the weekend, Raptors radio play-by-play broadcaster Eric Smith reports.

VanVleet will miss a fourth straight game Wednesday at Oklahoma City, but Nurse spoke optimistically about the guard's progress as he works back from a strained hamstring. Nurse didn't commit to a specific return date, but he told reporters that VanVleet would "probably" be back for "one of the games this weekend." The Raptors are off Thursday before hosting Washington on Friday and taking on the Timberwolves in Minneapolis on Saturday.
