Fred VanVleet (back soreness) is listed as doubtful to play on Sunday.
A top-tier matchup between the Raptors and Nuggets will now be depleted of top-tier talent, with Will Barton, Gary Harris, Paul Millsap, Kyle Lowry, Pascal Siakam and likely Fred VanVleet out. FVV had been starting of late with Kyle Lowry and Kawhi Leonard missing time, but his absence will throw Delon Wright into the starting lineup. Lorenzo Brown will move into the backup role and we'll probably see more C.J. Miles and Malachi Richardson at the two guard. It's probably going to be a big-minute night for Danny Green, too.
