Jonas Valanciunas (left ankle) has returned from the locker room on Monday after getting his ankle taped.
He walked to the locker room under his own power, but with a strong limp. Team doctors followed immediately and taped it up. JV was available to return to the game, but the Raptors decided not to rush him back in the blowout. Valanciunas ended with 12 points and 11 rebounds with one steal and two blocks in 22 minutes before leaving in the third quarter. His availability is a good sign that the injury shouldn’t be considered serious.
