Toronto Raptors guard Fred VanVleet, who suffered a right knee contusion in Sunday's loss to the Philadelphia 76ers, will not play Monday night against the Chicago Bulls according to TSN's Josh Lewenberg.
According to Blake Murphy of The Athletic, VanVleet had an MRI on his knee that came back clean, so Monday's absence is more precautionary than anything else.
VanVleet was injured in the first half of Sunday's game and did not return. He played just 12 minutes, scoring just two points before leaving the game.
The 25-year-old VanVleet is having a career-best season in 2019, averaging 18.0 points and 7.0 assists.
The Raptors will look to end a three-game losing streak when they take on the Bulls tonight.
