With the return of VanVleet, Barnes and Anunoby, only Isaac Bonga and Justin Champagnie remain in protocol.
The Raptors host the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday night.
All three men had missed the team's previous two games - losses against the Cleveland Cavaliers and Philadelphia 76ers. Anunoby had previously returned from a 13-game absence in a Dec. 18 win over the Golden State Warriors.
The Raptors, 14-17, sit 11th in the Eastern Conference and 1.5 games back of the Washington Wizards for the final playoff spot.
