VanVleet had 17 points (5-13 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five assists, three rebounds and a steal across 35 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Nets.
VanVleet had appeared in only one of the past nine games for Toronto while dealing with the hip injury and a one-game suspension, but he didn't face restrictions of any kind and logged 35 minutes -- the second-highest mark on the team. His poor shooting performance can be related to his lengthy absence, but his return gives Toronto another potent scoring weapon alongside Pascal Siakam, Kyle Lowry and the rising OG Anunoby.
VanVleet (hip) is not listed on the injury report for Wednesday's game versus Brooklyn.
VanVleet appeared in only one of the past nine games while dealing with the hip injury and a one-game suspension, but he's set to play Wednesday against the Nets. The 27-year-old played only 23 minutes in his last appearance and could face some limitations early on for Toronto.
VanVleet (hip) will not play Sunday against the Thunder, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
VanVleet returned from a seven-game absence in Friday's win over Orlando, but he's back on the shelf for Sunday due a hip injury. His next chance to play will be Wednesday against Brooklyn.
VanVleet (hip) might not be able to play Sunday against the Thunder, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
VanVleet is at risk for missing Sunday's game due to his hip injury. More information on his status is likely to become available later Saturday or early Sunday.
VanVleet recorded six points (3-11 FG, 0-6 3Pt), six assists, two blocks, one rebound and one steal in 23 minutes during Friday's win over the Magic.
The 27-year-old returned after a seven-game absence due to a hip injury coupled with a one-game suspension to post his lowest scoring effort since Feb. 11. VanVleet's minutes should ramp up once he gets his legs back under him. Before Friday's game, he was averaging career highs in points (19.8) and three-pointers (3.3) through 44 games. The fifth-year guard will look to bounce back Sunday at home against the Thunder.
VanVleet (suspension) is expected to return to action Friday against Orlando, Josh Lewenberg of TSN reports.
Coach Nick Nurse has been all over the map when discussing VanVleet of late, as he stated earlier in the week that VanVleet was not close to returning to action. However, VanVleet is serving his one-game suspension -- stemming from an incident against the Lakers last week -- Wednesday night, which implies that he's healthy enough to be removed from the injury report (and therefore eligible to serve the suspension). When asked Wednesday whether VanVleet would play in Friday's game against Orlando, Nurse responded: "I would assume so, yeah."
VanVleet (hip) is healthy but is serving his suspension, preventing him from playing Wednesday against the Spurs, Aaron Rose of SI.com reports.
VanVleet has missed the past six games due to a strained left hip. Coach Nick Nurse suggested Tuesday than VanVleet was not overly close to returning, but the fact that he'll serve the suspension Wednesday would indicate that he's nearing full health. With a number of regulars still out for Toronto, Rodney Hood and Malachi Flynn should pick up increased minutes in the backcourt Wednesday. VanVleet should be ready to return to the lineup Friday against the Magic.
VanVleet (hip) is without a timetable to return to game action, Josh Lewenberg of TSN reports.
Coach Nick Nurse didn't offer up many details, but when asked about VanVleet's timetable he said, "It's not great news." That would seem to imply that the guard, who will miss his sixth straight contest Tuesday night, could be set to miss several more games as the Raptors fight for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. For now, it's probably safe to rule out VanVleet for the remainder of Week 17. Once he's eventually cleared to play, he'll still have to serve a one-game suspension for his role in last week's incident during the Raptors' matchup against the Lakers.
VanVleet (hip) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Hawks.
The 27-year-old will be sidelined for the sixth straight game as he continues to nurse a strained left hip flexor. VanVleet will still have to serve a one-game suspension once clear of the injury report, so he can be ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Spurs, too. Gary Trent should continue to handle a larger role for the Raptors alongside Kyle Lowry for the duration of VanVleet's absence.
VanVleet (hip) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Knicks.
The 27-year-old continues to nurse a strained left hip flexor and will be sidelined again Sunday. VanVleet will be required to serve a one-game suspension once clear of the injury report.
VanVleet (hip) is out for Saturday's game against the Cavaliers, Aaron Rose of SI.com reports.
VanVleet still hasn't been removed from Toronto's injury report, so he could still have to wait for an opportunity to serve his one-game suspension. On a positive note for the Raptors, Kyle Lowry (foot) is questionable after having missed Thursday's game.
VanVleet (hip) has been suspended one game for his role in Tuesday's altercation with the Lakers, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
VanVleet was barely involved with the altercation itself, but he left the team's bench, which triggers an automatic one-game suspension. The guard was already ruled out of Thursday's game with a hip injury, so he'll likely have to serve the suspension over the weekend once he's removed from the injury report. The Raptors play Saturday in Cleveland before finishing out Week 16 with a Sunday night matchup against the Knicks at Madison Square Garden.
VanVleet (hip) is out Thursday against the Bulls, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
VanVleet will miss a third straight game Thursday as he continues to deal with a hip injury. With Kyle Lowry (foot) out as well, the Raptors will likely continue to start DeAndre' Bembry and Gary Trent in the backcourt.
VanVleet (hip) will not play Tuesday against the Lakers, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
VanVleet will miss his second game in a row while he deals with a hip flexor injury. Malachi Flynn and and DeAndre' Bembry should see increased roles once again as the team is extremely thin in the backcourt.
VanVleet (hip) is unavailable for Monday's game against the Wizards, Aaron Rose of SI.com reports.
The 27-year-old will sit out Monday's contest after suffering the hip flexor injury Friday versus Golden State. Malachi Flynn is expected to enter the starting lineup Monday for Toronto. VanVleet's status for the second half of the back-to-back set Tuesday is also up in the air.
VanVleet (hip) is questionable for Monday's game against the Wizards.
The 27-year-old picked up the injury Friday against the Warriors, and his status remains in question for the front half of the back-to-back set Monday. Gary Trent and Malachi Flynn likely will have increased roles should VanVleet be unable to face Washington.
VanVleet will not return to Friday's matchup with the Warriors due to a strained right hip flexer, per the Raptors' television broadcast.
VanVleet recorded seven points (2-5 FG, 1-3 3PT, 2-2 FT), one rebound, three assists and one block across 17 minutes before exiting the game. The severity of his injury is unknown at this time, but he will have two days to rest before Monday's matchup with the Wizards. Malachi Flynn and the recently acquired Gary Trent will presumably be in line for bigger roles should VanVleet have to miss any more time.
VanVleet mustered 18 points (5-17 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 5-6 FT), seven assists, five steals, four blocks and four rebounds across 39 minutes in Wednesday's loss against the Thunder.
VanVleet had a rough night from the field, but he had an excellent performance in other categories since he filled the stat sheet admirably. This was likely nothing more than a mere bump in the road for VanVleet, though, as he had put up 20-plus points in five of six games coming into Wednesday's tilt.
VanVleet recorded 22 points (7-20 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 4-7 FT), five rebounds and an assist across 33 minutes in Monday's 118-104 loss to the Pistons.
VanVleet is doing all he can as the Raptors slide into another string of losses. Even though the Raptors are mostly healthy, they are still acclimating after the Norman Powell trade. Gary Trent needs more time to gel with the team, so for now, VanVleet is carrying a heavy load. Under the circumstances, he's playing exceedingly well. Although he missed five games in early March, he's been productive the remainder of the month, with an average of 20.3 points, 4.5 assists, 3.8 rebounds and 1.6 steals over eight games played.
VanVleet scored 22 points (8-18 FG, 6-15 3Pt) while adding four rebounds, three assists and one steal over 39 minutes Friday in the loss to the Suns.
VanVleet has not been shy about letting it rip from deep, and he hasn't disappointed. Over his last four games, VanVleet has connected on a total of 20 triples while hitting them at a rate of 40.0 percent. As a result, VanVleet has topped 20 points in three of four outings, though his assist numbers have been less than stellar.
