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

VanVleet, who turns 25 on February 25, is expected to wear a splint for approximately three weeks, and his condition will then be updated.

Jeremy Lin is about to be on the move again, with the veteran guard in the process of getting bought out by the Atlanta Hawks so he can sign with the playoff-contending Toronto Raptors.

The team said he injured himself during the second quarter of the Raptors' 104-99 victory on Saturday at the New York Knicks.

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




The Raptors were expected to be active in the buyout market after losing four players, while bringing back only Marc Gasol, on trade deadline day.

The three week minimum timeline likely sidelines him for the entirety of the six-game homestand for the Raptors that begins Monday night against Brooklyn.

VanVleet has been the backup point guard to Kyle Lowry.

Toronto is now 41-16 and leading the Eastern Division.
