VanVleet posted 27 points (10-24 FG, 5-14 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 13 assists, two rebounds, two steals and one block in 41 minutes during Tuesday's 105-100 loss to the Clippers. With Kyle Lowry (back) a late scratch, VanVleet was the only experienced playmaker on the roster. He took advantage, posting a 31.5 percent usage rate and handing out double-digit assists for the sixth time this season.
VanVleet is not on the injury report for Tuesday's game against the Clippers. VanVleet got the night off Sunday as Toronto took care of the Lakers at Staples Center, but he'll be back in the lineup Tuesday night. The dynamic guard is coming off of a 30-point, six-rebound, seven-assist, two-steal, four-three-pointer effort in 40 minutes against the Jazz on Saturday night.
VanVleet (hip) will not play Sunday against the Lakers, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports. VanVleet will be sidelined after he went for 30 points across 40 minutes during the team's front end of a back-to-back Saturday against Utah. His absence could open up more playing time for Rodney Hood.
VanVleet totaled 30 points (11-25 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven assists, six rebounds and two steals across 40 minutes Saturday in a loss to Utah. VanVleet missed Thursday's contest in order to manage his recovery from a left hip flexor strain, but the issue clearly didn't affect him much Saturday as he paced Toronto in points and assists. The 27-year-old finished with his highest scoring total since Feb. 16 and has logged at least 40 minutes in three of his past four contests. VanVleet benefitted from Kyle Lowry sitting out the contest to rest, and that may be a somewhat regular occurrence down the stretch with Toronto seemingly not pushing very hard for a playoff spot.
VanVleet (hip) isn't on the injury report for Saturday's game against the Jazz. VanVleet sat out Thursday's game against Denver due to left hip flexor strain injury recovery, but it appears as though he'll return to the court Saturday. He's averaged 15.8 points, 6.8 assists and 4.8 rebounds in 37.3 minutes per game across his last four appearances.
