Raptors' guard Fred VanVleet to miss 'approximately' three weeks with thumb injury

Raptors' guard Fred VanVleet to miss 'approximately' three weeks with thumb injury

Jeremy Lin, the first American of Chinese or Taiwan ancestry to play in the National Basketball Association, is finalizing a contract buyout with Atlanta to set up signing with Toronto, his agents told ESPN.

The injury occurred during the second quarter of Saturday's win in NY against the Knicks.

VanVleet is enjoying a career year in his third season with the team averaging 10.5 points and 4.6 assists while shooting 37% from three-point range in 51 appearances this season.

Wojnarowski reports that the buyout could be completed as soon as Monday, allowing the Raptors to sign him sometime this week.

Pompeo had briefed lawmakers about the investigation but the secretary of state did not disclose any further details. He will hold bilateral talks with Prime Minister Modi on wide range of issues of mutual interest.

The Toronto Raptors shored up their roster ahead of a playoff run by acquiring three-time All-Star center Marc Gasol earlier in the week, but they're not done improving yet.

Fellow backup point guard Fred VanVleet is expected to remain a key cog off the bench, as Lin has plenty of experience playing alongside other smaller guards.

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

Lin averaged 14.6 points in 35 games for the Knicks that season, a huge uptick from his rookie season with the Golden State Warriors when he was used sparingly.
