The Toronto Raptors biggest nemesis this season continues to be health.

Just moments after rumours began circulating about the Jeremy Lin signing, the team announced that back-up guard Fred Van Vleet will be sidelined for at least three weeks due to a partial ligament injury to his left thumb.

He sustained the injury during the second quarter of the team’s 104-99 win over the New York Knicks on Saturday.

The 24-year old, who is in his third season with the Raptors, is averaging a career-best 10.5 points, 4.6 assists and 2.7 rebounds in 51 games this season.
