Game thread: Toronto Raptors at San Antonio Spurs

Facing a team they’ve had success against in the past, the Raptors look to get out of their current doldrums on the road.

After losing three straight games, the Toronto Raptors take on the San Antonio Spurs tonight with a key piece to the puzzle back in the lineup.

After playing through, and then missing time with knee soreness, VanVleet’s return provides one more option (and one more shooter) for the Raptors, who have looked woefully thin over their losing streak.

The Raptors beat the Spurs in their only other matchup this season and will hope to repeat that success. One bonus for San Antonio, though, is they’ll have their All-Star in Dejounte Murray active, who missed the 129-104 Raptors win in January.

Finally, for the Raptors, Malachi Flynn and OG Anunoby continue to sit with hamstring and finger injuries, respectively.

Here are the game details.
