VanVleet won't play Friday against the Hornets due to left shoulder pain.
VanVleet presumably picked up the injury during Tuesday's loss against Milwaukee, and he'll miss his first game since Jan. 17. In his absence, Terence Davis and Matt Thomas could see expanded roles.
VanVleet had eight points (3-12 FG, 2-9 3Pt), three rebounds, three assists and two steals in 26 minutes during Sunday's 127-81 win over the Pacers.
VanVleet had reached double figures in scoring in eight straight games prior to this one, and this is just the fifth time through 47 appearances that he has been limited to single digits this season. He'll look to bounce back against the Bucks on Tuesday on his 26th birthday.

VanVleet stepped up with Kyle Lowry (neck), Norman Powell (finger) and Marc Gasol (hamstring) all sidelined, pacing the team in scoring and assists. VanVleet is one of the league's best drivers, capable of creating shots for himself and others, plus he's always a threat to fill it up from beyond the arc. He'll look to keep it rolling during Monday's matchup versus a Timberwolves team that has been a disaster defensively for the vast majority of the season.
VanVleet totaled 20 points (6-14 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 5-5 FT), seven assists, three rebounds and two steals in 41 minutes during Friday's 115-106 victory over Indiana.
VanVleet scored at least 20 points for the first time in over two weeks. Despite his offensive struggles, VanVleet has still maintained third-round value over the past two weeks thanks to his high assist and steal numbers.

VanVleet produced eight points (3-13 FG, 2-7 3Pt), 12 assists, seven rebounds and one steal in 37 minutes during Thursday's 115-109 win over the Cavaliers.
VanVleet made up for a poor shooting performance with a season high assist total.

VanVleet has hit the ground running in two games since returning from injury, as he's scored a combined 49 points in 54 minutes of action. On Saturday in Minnesota, VanVleet hit seven three-pointers, and while he didn't shoot the ball as well Monday, he was able to make his presence felt at the free throw line, where he drained a season-high 11 of 14 attempts. VanVleet's previous season-high for free throw attempts was nine (Nov. 23 at Atlanta).
VanVleet (hamstring) dropped 29 points (11-16 FG, 7-8 3Pt) to go with four rebounds, four steals and two assists in 28 minutes Saturday in the Raptors' 122-112 win over the Timberwolves.
Returning from a five-game absence due to a hamstring issue, VanVleet immediately caught fire from deep in the win, and even saw more playing time than the 25-minute restriction that he had been estimated to play under heading into the contest. The soon-to-be 26-year old is posting career highs in every counting stat thanks to his larger role and significant leap in playing time this season following the offseason trade of Kawhi Leonard to the Clippers. Coach Nick Nurse could again impose a light restriction on VanVleet's minutes again Monday, but it shouldn't dissuade fantasy managers from activating him ahead of Toronto's four-game week.
