  • Fred Van Vleet Injury Update

VanVleet had been enjoying a career season, averaging 10.5 points, 2.7 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game before the injury.

Linsanity is coming to Canada.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the veteran point guard is finalizing a buyout with the Atlanta Hawks and will sign with Toronto following the buyout according to his agents Jim Tanner and Roger Montgomery.

Toronto Raptors fans know just how lethal Jeremy Lin can be. The Raptors will be Lin's eighth team in his eight-plus years in the league, following stints with the Warriors, Knicks, Rockets, Lakers, Hornets, and Nets.

Lin was enjoying a dazzling breakout season in NY in 2011-12 when he brought his "Linsanity" road show to Toronto, draining a three-point dagger at the buzzer to lift the Knicks 90-87 over the Raptors.

Trump's Bogus El Paso Claim
The Make America Great Again rally will take place in El Paso , Texas on Monday at the County Coliseum. The president's rally comes four days before the nation could fall into another government shutdown.

The Toronto Raptors announced Monday that guard Fred VanVleet is out with a partial ligament injury to his left thumb.

The trade with the Memphis Grizzlies for Marc Gasol took away some of their depth (Delon Wright, C.J. Miles), and Raptors president Masai Ujiri quickly suggested the team would "attack" the buyout market after the trade deadline.

Lin, 30, will need to clear waivers first, something that should be a foregone conclusion given he's set to make $12.5 million this season.

The Raptors entered Monday with a 41-16 record and second place in the Eastern Conference behind only NBA-leading Milwaukee.
