TORONTO -- Jonas Valanciunas was scheduled to return to the Toronto Raptors' lineup Friday against the visiting Los Angeles Clippers after missing 18 games with a broken finger.

The rookie forward broke his right ring finger Dec. 26 against the Orlando Magic, when he got tangled up when battling for a loose ball under the basket.

The 20-year-old Lithuanian, whom the Raptors selected with their No. 5 pick 2011 draft, was averaging 8.1 points and 5.4 rebounds a game.

He started all 28 of his appearances for Toronto.
