Toronto Raptors guard Fred VanVleet will miss at least three weeks with a left thumb injury, the team says.

VanVleet includes a tight ligament injury and can wear a splint for approximately three weeks before it is re evaluated.

He also suffered the injury in while in the second quarter of Saturday’s triumph in June.

VanVleet is averaging 10.5 points, 4.6 assists and 2.7 rebounds. He averages 26.8 minutes off the bench.

This is anticipated to create the addition of Jeremy Lin more impactful for Toronto, as he will instantly step in to a key role.
